Glitter and Color

I’ve found myself using really bright, fun colors lately on my cards.  Maybe it’s the weather turning colder and I’m trying to hang onto the sunny days a little longer.

I made this happy card and gave it to my beautiful cousin for her 4th 39th birthday Winking smile.

Brooke's Cards 007

It features lots of shapes cut with my Cricut, Making Memories metal letters and eyelets, and glitter for bling.  I was going for a ‘clean’ feel so I left the background stark white.

I also made this thank you card.

Brooke's Cards 001

More paper from stash, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Prima flowers, Making Memories buckle andof course more glitter!

Gotta love the BLING!

Attempt at a Celtic Theme

I was going through some of my pictures of cards I have made over the last several months and came across this one I made this past summer for a dear friend.  I thought I’d share it here, even though it’s an older one.

I was going for a Celtic feel, which proved to be quite hard.  There is not a lot of Celtic/Gaelic themed items out there.  (If there are, I’d love to know where to find them).  These rub-ons were the closest I could find to a Celtic feel, in the color I wanted.



I used fiber paper on the front, combined with antique ribbon, and some lovely buckles.  It’s a very simple card, and also one of my favorites.
