The Card Recipes




For this card, I used the blending brushes to create a subtle background to house the donkey image.  I used Pear Pizzazz ink for the ground and Seaside Spray for the sky.

Card 1 Measurements:
Card Base - Highland Heather Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Layer 1 - Magenta Madness Cardstock - 3 3/4 x 5
Layer 2 - Basic White Cardstock - 3 1/4 x 4 3/4
Card Insert - Basic White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4


Product List







For this card, I used the blending brushes to create the shape in an ombre look.  I created a template by cutting out a heart from the thick basic white cardstock.  I placed the mask over top of the cardstock that I wanted to colour onto.  I rubbed the Blending Brushes inside the cut out heart shape.

Card 2 Measurements:
Card Base - Seaside Spray Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Layer 1 - Paper Blooms DSP - 4 x 5 1/4
Layer 2 - Basic White Cardstock - 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
Donkey - Paper Blooms DSP - 2 x 2
Card Insert - Basic White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4


Product List










For this card, I cut out some cloud "bumps" from a scrap piece of cardstock.  I placed it on my card in the sky area and lightly added some Seaside Spray ink using the Blending Brushes.  I kept moving the template down further and further until a sky look was accomplished.

Card 3 Measurements:
Card Base - Basic White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Layer 1 - Rococo Rose Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4
Layer 2 - Basic White Cardstock - 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
