Just Because I Care

Hello, thank you for swinging by today, to take a peek at one of my cards.
Today i have more photos than usually :-) first its my very first easel card i have ever made taataaa :-) and i wanted to show off some of the cute gifts it got on Saturday from my friend Crissy in the mail.

First here’s a shot of the copper hardware flower, which i have topped with a peridot green gem and some of the cute berry embellishments. They look like they have been kind of iced. OMG.. beautiful.. especially for winter. As far i know those came directly from the Magnolia shop in Sweden.


My wonderful friend Carole challenged dear Crissy and myself to make a easel card using my Hanglar stamp.  OMG… Easel card.. alright.. so i check how to fold, check … than i wanted to have a big picture cause i was unsecure with layout ect. so i had a combination of Hanglars in my mind.. look for them and shocker.. i forgot to order one girl for a set. I go to the Hanglar site and it is gone. aaahhh… all i hope is that Marie will add some of her cute stamps back to the web shop. Back to my card.. i went with the bench and the sitting Hanglar boy, just recently released. This image is now fairly big as you can tell :-)
Lets move on i want to tell you something about the paper, this time
Before i went on vacation i was reading at Marianne Walkers blog (i like markers) something about a paper that she suggested for Copic markers AND Distress/water coloring. Well.. i was all about it.. i had to have it. This is my first attempt using the paper.
Honestly tho.. iam not so sure what i should think about it.
First the paper is super thin… unlike ANY other papers i have ever used. Not sure if i like it or not – it feels funny to the touch.. besides i was worried using glue to adhere it to my mat

.





Overall.. i think i will give this paper an other try. I can not just toss a 9 dollar pack of paper in the trash and since it is so thin i do not even want to use it for matting my images. Maybe it is all in the “wrist” and it just takes time and practice to get used to it. However.. i just like my Arches Watercolor pad the best.  That’s it for today :-) lots of chatting for today, right.. but i thought you might be interested in my five cents. Thanks for reading and oh.. the wonderful papers on my card with all the cherries on it are by Webster pages 6x6! Those are going to be sooo cute with some of my older Magnolia’s as well.
Take care sending lots of love Claudia

scrappinpeg said...

Oh my. First of all I love your card and coloring.
Second I just bought 2 REAMS of this new paper and was so ANXIOUS for it to arrive. Now you have me worried. Maybe the paper is meant more for copics rather than water coloring?
Well, anyway I have a LOT to color on and LEARN how to use! LOL
beautiful card!
