Just cause........

Good morning all my cyber buddies!!

I hope that your weekend was a wonderful one. I enjoyed mine!! In fact I am still enjoying it today as I am off work and working around the house a bit. The rain has stopping here and the sun is shining and promises to be a beautiful day.


Today I have made a card with many folds to share with you. I have never made a card like this one before. It is interesting and has tons of layers. I love layers!! I have used one of my little hAnglar sweeties and have her sitting on some beautiful vincas. They are from Judi at Angel's Landing. I love to take her flowers and sit cute little images out on top of them! I have used the *NEW set called Nature Chipmunk & Vinca. These set have over 12 images in the collection and PERFECT to use in so many ways. Make sure to pop over to Angel's Landing and have a look. The possibilties are endless.

If you missed my card that I did with the little hAnglar boy and the Angel's Landing Nature Bunny & Violets you can click here to see it. I have used my copic markers to color my images. I have added stickles to the wings for a bit of added sparkle. Now over at Make it Crafty this week the challenge is make a Sky Background so I did just that and I have a photo posted below with how I have done just that using my distressed inks.

Basic Grey has a challenge this week for more than one fold and so that is why I have done this type of card.


Here you can see the first opening of the card. I have used papers from: Basic Grey, Doodle Bug, Bo Bunny and Bazzill cardstocks. Not really much for embellies today with card. Just a ribbon, piece of trim and sparkle brads. and the last opening of my card. As you can see there is lots of room for your message. Now just how did I do my sky background? As you can see I have used my Ranger distressed inks, sponge pad and I have cut a cloud shape from just plain old computer paper. I have sit the cloud on my image and sponged around it. Then I lifted it up and moved it and did it again until I was happy with all the look of the clouds. If you look close you will see that on some of them I have inked all the way around the little cloud and then others I have only inked around part of it. I love to make back grounds like this and I haven't for such a long time. If you haven't tried this I hope that you will as it is fun!!


Copic Markers, Ranger inks and stickles can be purchased at Michelle's scrapbooking and More for some of the best pricing on the web!! HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

I would love to hear what you think about my card.

Adorable hAnglar! Love your card construction and papers and those clouds are sooooo dreeeeeamy! Hugs, Lesley

Sandy said...

Beautiful -- I adore this color combo. The flowers are gorgeous. You can't beat the hAnglar images, they are so cute. I love the design of this folded card - wonderful. You were very wise to know that this glorious scene did not need another thing. When a card is this beautiful, why detract from the art work itself with other embellishments!
