Secretly I am a scrapbooker, who does not make cards as often as I should. When I buy a card from the shop to go with a present, I feel guilty because surely I could find time to make something super quick with stuff from my stash? The reality is, that I find cards a challenge, so I think I avoid it- so little space to make the card balanced and looking good! Luckily this morning I was inspired by our friend Charmane, from Charms Creations who has been sharing her awesome cards on her Facebook page.
She was using these Tim Holtz distress stains
to colour the backgrounds for her cards.
This was just the inspiration I needed to get busy making cards this afternoon. Using some lovely lovelies from my Rainbow Splendour stash - namely Polaroids, plus a few bows and chevrons, these cards, with their Tim Holtz coloured backgrounds and some sequins, were so quick and easy to assemble. These six cards were done in an hour! Now I have some cards in my pocket, all ready to go for the next birthday!
Here they are:
So that was fun! And it proves it... Rainbow Splendour is a perfect embellishment for card making... even the most reluctant card maker (me) can do it!
See you soon,
