Blog Candy & 'High Tide', A Fun & Versatile Card!

See larger image

Ever want a card that is a little different? Well, this card is funky, fun and perfect for both boys, girls, ladies, men and kiddies too! I’ve called this one, ‘High Tide’ and it could be used for a birthday or even for a Bon Voyage card.

In the video, I walk you though how I made this card, and I use a number of my favourite card making techniques – masking, using distress inks, rubber stamping, adding a special touch with Perfect Pearls. I hope you enjoy the video and will give it a try yourself. (You can see the HD version on YouTube)

But before you watch the video, I think its time for something exciting…well, two things really.

Firstly, now that the holiday season is over, the Paperclipping Monthly challenges are back! So hop on over to the challenge section of The Crop Circle to see the challenge topics for this month, and some great examples by kristyn.  This is a great way to get back  into the creative swing again.


after Christmas I decided that it was time to do a little purging of the craft room, so I think it is time to have a giveaway – well, everyone loves some blog candy don’t they?

I’m gonna put together a mix box of crafty goodness, who knows what will be in it, but I already know that there will be paper, embellishments, stickers…. and lots more!

    I haven’t watched your vid Lesley as I think my pc is dying – it’s struggling to open simple blog pages let alone vids but the card itself is gorgeous. I love all the dimension and sparkle on it.

    I’ll link to you on my sidebar in just a min (well, more like 10 at the speed I’m going 😉 )

      oh no, i hope your PC gets better soon, my advise is to burn all your photos to CDs now, before its too late. Believe me, i learnt the hard way. x

    That card is so cute! I love the waves and how much dimension you’ve created.

    Love the card- it could be perfect for a father’s day card! I’m going to have to try that technique with the circle punch. That’s so clever! Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy. 🙂
