Just because

Be Brilliant!

Monday, June 29, 2015

I LOVE Brian King's cards.  If you don't know his stuff, take a look at his blog, it's filled with crisp lines, bright colours, and borders!  He loves borders.  I have been hanging out for him to make a card that I could CASE and until recently everything needed to need products I didn't have.  Then I found this one.  

Fiona's notes: 
  • I didn't have everything in my cupboard that Brian used on his card, so I have been creative.  But that also just means that there's a touch of me amongst the "CASE"!
  • Instead of using DSP for the middle layer of grey like Brian, I stamped the cardstock with Versamark to create a patterned paper effect

 Stamp sets: A Happy Thing, (Papertrey Ink - Birthday Style)  Ink: Versamark, Memento Black Paper: Basic Grey, Daffodil Delight  Accessories: Black embossing powder, stampin dimensionals,

Thanks so much for stopping by


Birthday Basics Owl

Wow, it's been ages since I last wrote a post.  I am so sorry I neglected you all for so long.  I went into hibernation at the end of the university semester because of all the work I had to do for my major papers and exams.  I was so stressed I didn't even leave you a post to let you know!  So now I'm back and I have some fun cards lined up to show you over the next few days.  Starting with this little guy!  Isn't he cute?!

Fiona's notes: Although the Birthday Basics DSP is retired, there is some currently available in the Clearance Rack.  Get in quick though!  It's so much fun that I don't think it will last long.

Stamps: A Word For You Ink: Memento Black Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Green Garden, Birthday Basics DSP Accessories: Owl Punch, Neutrals Candy Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue
