Or better yet what does 4, 2, 1 represent?? :o)
Well, let me tell ya...
4 = four sets of cards ; 2 = two different swaps ; 1 = one very nice hostess.
Taryn's her name and her alias is 'littleladybug3' :o)
She's presently hosting 'Flowers for a Friend' , due in a few days, and 'Lovely as a Tree' swap, due next month.
the house and all the rest was looked after my concerned and caring hubby, including making me
hot ,steamy much needed chicken soup ....ohh yeahhh..........I think I unknowingly was on a liquid diet!!! lol Anyways, without any further delays here are my first two sets of cards :
'FLOWERS FOR A FRIEND'
***...LOTS of cards today on this post!! ...lol...please scroll all the way down and check all the trees cards too!! Let me know WHICH one of all these cards is YOUR favorite*** :o)
First set of flowery cards- don't they looks like springtime? I wanted to show a 3-D effect....
I used SU! 'A Tree for all Seasons' set here
*each pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them*
I used 'Up Daisies' set here
Second sets of flowery cards...these daisies are encased in , and shaped by Spellbinders Nesties. A sentiment is added inside the card, flanked by a cute butterfly .The distressed tecnique was used around the pink c/s edges only,giving the card a more interesting finish.
And now, here are my second sets of cards for the swap due nest month :
'LOVELY AS A TREE' is the title, just as the set I used to create the colorful images you see here:o) I tried a new (to me) tecnique (mirrored image/reflexion) and really liked the way they turned out even though this is my very first attempt. In some of the cards I used less ink on purpose (stamp on,stamp off), wanting to leave a much lighter subtle effect on the mirrored image. You can say I was busy experimenting ...that would be a very good assumption :o)
I enjoyed this tecnique very much and also liked the end results with both subtle and vivid inking....
*What do YOU think? Duable again? :o)
*Darker, vividly stamped image here*
*Used less ink here,displaying a medium reflected image* Inside sentiment is also displayed here*
*This is amongst the softest of all the mirrored images I made, it has just a very subtle, gentle hint to it*
And, finally, one last card set to complete this upload...............
'TREES THREE' stamp set finally came out of its confinement! Such lovely set and hardly ever used.....*sigh*
These bare trees images made me think of a simple winter scene,
just added a lot of diamond stickle to the branches for that soft
glittery, snowy look...I rather like how the cards turned out...simple,elegant and with distressed edges. Versatile enough to use for many different occasions.
