Wow, we finally have sun up in the northeast!!! I am totally in a beachy mood right now as you can see by my latest card:
I was inspired by the gals over at Caardvarks to make a window card. I filled a zip-to baggie with hair gel and taped it to back of my window. on the inside there is a gradient blue panel that I made with a kaliedacolor ink pad, brayer and homemade shimmer spray. Here you can see the card closed and open:
I have had the fortune to try out a Wacom pen tablet. My friend Micki lent me her tablet and I can’t stop playing with the darn thing (hey Micki, do you think you could explain to my husband why I haven’t had time to do any laundry this week LOL!) The digital stamp on this card I made by drawing it right on the tablet, what fun! To see more of my designs click here.
I know it is one of my first attempts with the tablet, I am used to drawing by hand and scanning it into the computer, what do you think? I also drew the sun in inkscape and made a svg file that you can cut with your cricut if you have Sure Cuts A Lot software. I have a scut file for the card base too and I did not forget my cricut peeps who only have the free trial of DS you can make this card with Design Studio using the George cartridge (I think there is a sun die cut on the George card as well that you can use in place of my sun svg.)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’d love to hear any comments on the files or tips for using a wacom tablet, or if you just want to say “hello”! Till next time happy crafting!
