Graceful swan


Happy monday everyone!

A while ago I was so lucky to be asked to do a card/tutorial for the online magazine StampArtic. The theme was "Frames on cards", and you might have noticed that frames are one of my favorite things to add to my cards:)

This is the card I came up with, and if you want to see the step by step instructions, simply head over to StampArtic.
As usual the images were colored with Distress Inks, and the stamps used are from Heartfelt Creations , Graceful Swan, and Filler Leaves.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

So pretty! The frame looks fabulous.

Gro said...

Den ramma var skikkelig lekker. Må nok prøve ut den når jeg kommer hjem igjen til alle tingene mine.

Og selvfølgelig tar fargeleggingen din pusten fra meg.

Dette kortet var bare helt nyyyyydelig.
Motiver var så lekkert, og nydelig fargelagt. Ramma var kjempeflott, og smart. Lekkert resultat...

Nå har jeg gått igjennom hele bloggen din, så langt jeg kom tilbake.
Og jeg må jo bare si: I granskuen jente, for noen kunstverk som ligger her....
Det ene kortet flottere enn det andre.
Julekorta fra i fjor var utrolig vakre, spesielt de to m/julestjerner (rødt og blått).
Du er utrolig flink, også mange flotte detaljer.....
Natta.

Dette var nok en nydelig kreasjon fra deg. Jeg falt skikkelig for den blåfargen på ramma. Jeg bare smelter for kortene dine. Jeg skal innom å sjekke tutorialen din. Må se om noe av din kreativitet kan smitte over.
Ha en strålende dag.
Klem Gunn :-D
