24 Cards in 7 Days

When my mojo comes back it comes back strong.  I just thought I'd share all the cards I made in the last week.  24 cards in 7 days is a lot of cards.  My average seems to be four, but some days it was only one and others it was a few more.


These six are all made using scraps from other cards I created.  I love my Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks so much that I never toss a scrap of it.  I really love the clean and simple look of these.


This is round two of using up some scraps.  I did a bit of die cutting and paper piecing for some added interest.


Round four used up the last of the scraps and I did a couple of hombre butterflies for accents.  You can see I even use the little strips.


These lovely cards were all inspired by Kelly Latevola and the card she did for the recent Simon Says Fluttering By Release Blog Hop.  I worked with my Distress Oxides and embossed the butterflies and dragonfly.  If you follow me on Instagram you know how I fixed the mistake on the dragonfly card.


Friday I had to do just one more of those faux watercolor cards.  I like the yellow, but the dragonfly gets a little lost.  Next time I will use black embossing powder with the lighter colors.


Saturday I only had time for this watercolor card.  This is an older Stampin' Up stamp that is retired, but I found mine on eBay.  This card was time-consuming and came with a learning curve.  I started by stamping the image using my stamp positioner and leaving the flower in my positioner.  I then did the watercolring.  Once the watercolor was dry I restamped the image and added the hugs sentiment.


Yesterday's creations were all over the board with techniques - Watercolor, Ink Blending, Inktense Pencils, and one more scrap buster.  I'll be doing a more detailed post of the Mother's Day card using the Inktense pencils later this week.
