Doodle card done, for Dad – and a share from a reader!

5 Comments

I got that card sorted and happy with the result.  I did two things – first, I stamped the word with a Papermania alphabet then doodled inside it and cut it out.  Then I did the doodle inside the Nestie shape to create the focal point element.  Being that DH is a bit busy I know he hasn’t found time to read my blog in a while so I feel safe sharing this:

I find Washi tape so useful to fill the gap when making an embossed background for a card when the folder isn’t big enough! I did a little pencil shading on this one and there are a couple of fab tutorials here.  I love it on the stripey curve in particular.

Now, I got a comment the other day from a reader named Beverly.  She made a couple of projects from my tutorials and I asked her to share them with me.  I wanted to share them with you so you could see that they are only ever a jumping off point for your own ideas. Here is her version of my circle tray/shelf card – she sort of combined the ideas from the original one (with the photo corners for adding a picture) and the attached butterflies from the Graphics Fairy printable one.  I think it turned out fab!  She tells me the backing butterfly is glittery embossed, which you don’t see in the photo very well:

But she didn’t stop there!  She also made a Word book.  I love the patchwork back cover so much!  I believe she said they are for her grand-daughter’s (?) birthday later in the month.

I just love getting to see how people use my stuff, so thanks so much to Bev for sharing, and for letting ME share with YOU.  I think her versions couldn’t be farther away from my samples, and I hope this gets people thinking of how they can take my basic idea and run away with it.
