It's all about the Feathers

Have I told you that I LOVE the Feathers framelits. Well I do.........

They are so on trend at the moment. I am seeing them everywhere. So I just had to have another play with them.


I got this idea from Mary Fish in the USA. She did a video on colour blocking with the Feather Framelits. So I cased her card and came up with this. 

I just love the effect that the two coloured leave gives.

I also used the Little Letters Thinlits for the Thank You.

I love how this card came out, but I think perhaps it needs something at the top. I know, I am my own worse critic. Maybe next time I make this design I might use a third colour.

If you want to recreate  this card, here is what I used.

Thanks for stopping by.
 
I hope I have inspired you to get crafty some time real soon.
 
Have a great day.
 
Cheers, Narelle

Bokeh - simply stunning !!!

Today I have a card to share with you that features a new technique called Bokeh.

This is trully a beautiful technique which gives a stunning effect.
You have probably seen the effect but didn't know the name of it. Here are some examples of Bokeh.




It is the effect of blurring the lights in the distance or background so that they appear like orbs.

And here is a card I made using this effect.

I can't share with you how to do this tecnhique as it was a Virtual Club technique. So only the ladies in my club have the instructions. But I am sure you could find something somewhere. If you want to be given instructions for techniques like this and more and don't want to have to go looking, then why not joing my Virtual Club.
 
If you want to make this card,  I used the following things.

It's all about DAD

Father's Day here in Australia is only a couple of weeks away.  So I have a few really quick and easy cards to show you.

With the first card I used the Little Letters Thinlits to cut out the word DAD in the top layer of the card. I then placed window sheet behind them and patterned paper on the next level where the letters would sit. Then popped up the top layer with dimensionals so it gives a raised effect. Such  a cool and easy effect.
 
 
For the bottom card I just popped a strip behind DAD. I stamped one of the strips from Tape It and then cut it out. I knew if I just stamped the Tape It strip onto the card front it would get lost in the Gorgeous Grunge I had alredy stamped.
 
Two really easy and simple cards to make that Dad will love.
