Three Bird Aperture

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is one I created, in bulk, for one of the sessions in my recent Virtual Groovi Retreat.  For each live I do, I send out 5 of the same card to group members, but because there were 4 demos in less than 24 hours, and one of them was a client's commission, I decided to make life easier for myself by only doing this card to send out... to TWENTY recipients!

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Nested Scallop Squares, but after the card I'll share with you next week, you won't be seeing the scallops for a while!!!  Why?  Because those scallops alone meant there were over 10,000 picot cuts across the 20 cards... not counting those around the birds (from an NDC plate)!!! 

It was all good fun though, and with the majority now received, I can confirm it was well worth the effort!



Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's clear parchment and Great Lakes DP
Groovi Plates: Nested Scallop Squares, Sprig Background, Tina's Daisy Flowers Parchlet (circles)
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating, and cutting tools, Perga Color pens, and Pergamano Brads

Ribbons and Butterfles With Love

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing today is the advanced version of the one I created for the first of two Facebook craft alongs last month.  Apart from the square frames, every element came from the NBUS February Groovi NDC plate...

As soon as I saw the plate, the ribbons I've used in the outer corners evoked thoughts of butterflies... I am butterfly crazy after all... hence why I colored the tails the way I did.  Grin.

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity clear parchment, and Toffee Apple designer paper
Groovi Plates: Nested Scallop Squares and NDC plate
Tools and embellishments: Clarity and Pergamano embossing, piercing and cutting tools, gold gel pen, Clarity brads, and brads from my stash (corner ones)

Challenges...

Linda's Lemon Tree

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The current situation definitely makes sense of the phrase "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade," but in this case, when Linda Williams' new Lemon Tree Groovi plate arrived in my mail box, I instead immediately made this peaceful scene, using only some of the elements on the plate...


I'm yet to do anything with the other elements, but I asure you they are equally beautiful, and I'll show you ASAP.

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity clear parchment and Toffee Apple designer paper
Groovi Plates: Linda's Lemon Tree
Tools and embellishments: Clarity's A5 plate mate and brads, Pergamano #1 embossing tool, and Perga Color pens

Challenges...

Happy Easter!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

In these weird times with days merging into each other, it's sometimes a little difficult to remember that Easter is this weekend.  But with that in mind before the craziness really enveloped the globe, I designed this Easter card, which I then demoed in my Creative Crew Facebook group late last month.


Whether you celebrate our Savior's resurection or not, I hope the card brightens your day.

Card: Unbranded white blank, Clarity's clear parchment and Toffee Apple designer paper
Groovi Plates: Tina's Christmas Centerpiece (main and oval frame), Linda's Cosmos and Lace (cross), Art Nouveux Lillies, Mel's Nouveux Arch (fleur de lis), Occasions Border, and Diagonal Piercing grid
Tools and embellishments: Clarity and Pergamano embossing and piercing tools, Clarity gold and white gel pens, Pergacolor pens, and brads from my stash

Challenges...

#206 Easter/ Spring at Crafty Gals Corner
#28 AG at Crafter's Castle
