Crafty Cardmakers DT call

I noticed a few days ago that Crafty Cardmakers are having a DT call so I've decided to have a go. Well you never know unless you try and I'm always up for a challenge! To apply I needed to make a new card on the theme of  "New Beginnings" and showcase my three favourite cards that I think show off my style. So firstly my New Beginnings card.

When I think of New Beginnings, the first thing that springs to mind is the birth of a baby. After all its not only a new beginning for the baby, its a new start for the parents too. So here is what I came up with:

I'm in love with easel cards at the moment, they are much simpler to make than you think but they look so effective. I used my baby boy stamp by Kars and coloured him in with my Promarkers. Papers and sentiment are from my stash.

So on to my favourite cards. This one is a card I made in July for my friend's birthday, so I went very summery.

I think this card shows how I often use the month or season to help me decide on a colour scheme/combination. It also shows my love of stamping and using my Promarkers!

Next I have a card I made last week for another friends birthday.
I used parts from a Kanban kit to decoupage this card. I like the 3D effect you get from layering pieces on top of each other with foam pads.

So finally here is a card that I think shows how I like using embossing folders to add texture. It also shows my love of making cards for children. Kids cards are the most fun!

So there we go, my three favourite cards! Hopefully they show my style of cardmaking and my favourite techniques. Well this my entry, fingers crossed!

Thanks for visiting!
