How to use an ugly card


Hello and welcome. Today I want to show you how you can use an ugly card. I am sure we have all been there. We have made a card that we just don't like. It could be the colours or perhaps the style of it. But don't throw it away, today I want to show you how you can use that card.

Recently my mojo had taken a hike. I was cleaning up my craft room and came across a huge pile of card sketches. Perfect I thought for helping me get out of my crafty slump. In hindsight I should have just stopped right there .....hehehe. Because this is what I came up with. 



I can't believe I just showed you that card....wow! Ugly!!!
But I was determined to use it, or rather parts of it. I just couldn't throw it out, so I made the elements from it into these three cards.





If you want to see how I did it, just watch the video below. The first 10 minutes of the video I talk about the awesome joining special we have starting on June 3. So if that doesn't interest you, just skip ahead.


You can purchase the products I used on my cards from my online store here from June 3.
Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle

Simply Inked Team - Circles


Hello and welcome. Today it is time for the Simply Inked Team Highlights. Our theme this week is circles. I love using different shapes on cards to add a bit of interest. Circles are fun as they can lend themselves to shaker cards, punch art and so much more. 



For my project today I decided to create with the new In Good Taste Suite. I love the soft muted tones in some of the papers which dictated the rest of the card design. The soft pink wool type look of this piece of paper is just gorgeous. I paired it up with smoky slate for the beautiful flower in the stamp set. I can't wait till you can get your hands on this suite, it is stunning, and so versatile. If you are a scrapper you are going to love all these papers.

Fee has played along this week, so hop over to her blog and see what she has created.



You will be able to purchase products from this suite from June 3 in my online store here.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle

Ornate Garden


Hello and welcome. Today I have a pretty little card to share with you that is quite easy to make. You will be creating these for any and every occasion.


I made a thank you card, but change the sentiment and this card can be used for any occasion. The stamp set used was Ornate Style which is very pretty. I chose to use the small daisy in the set which was stamped three times and coloured with water color pencils. I then went over the pencil very lightly with an aqua painter. A small strip of paper from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper adds a punch of colour. The sentiments are from the Ornate Thanks stamps set. And of course the whole thing is framed by the wonderful scalloped border created using the Ornate Layers Dies.

Why not brighten someone's day with a pretty card just like this.

You can purchase the products I have used on this card by visiting my online store. The list of products used is below.

Have a great day.
