cards, cards....

i'm not much of a card maker but i think i should do more of them. for one thing, it's great to give and receive them in the age of emails. they're truly personal and seems to pack more of a hug or a kiss. i did a few just before the year ended and some early this year as you may check out here.

Nina had a blog party and she had questions one has to answer in order to join. part of it was to send in some projects with examples of the answer. i realized, i didn't have any to show for by way of the techniques. so i thought i would do a quickie project and above is the resulting card. it was inspired by one of the cards i saw made by Ms. Marian using alcohol inks. i didn't have glossy cardstock so i thought i'd UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) regular cardstock and then use alcohol inks on it for the background.


this one i made for my nephew, Caspen, last December. i wanted to go to his party but schedules were criss-crossed at the time. i so sent this one to him deliver my birthday wishes.


those Cuttlebug embossing folders are really so nice. here is another one i did for my inaanak, Lyza, who is visiting from Australia. she graduated from college with a Nursing degree.


this one was my entry to the Kaya challenge 8 last December. i gave it to Lyza too so she can take it back home to OZ for her parents. i miss my good friends Jojo and Beth!...somehow, this one just seems to be the perfect card for them send with my hugs and kisses.


these two are part of my Studio Azul projects. they'd be great for giving out next year since i was only able to work on them way past Xmas! now i have a headstart for the next holiday season...
