First card trial

I notice a lot of regular bloggers have a good concept of card layouts. I've just started with card making so I'm still learning and trying things out. I've noticed that with all the craft supplies I have, I dont have much to accessorize with. I also noticed that I like to focus on the main image and once thats done I dont really know what to do with the rest of the space. So over the next few days I'll post my trials!

I coloured this ladybug girl around the time I got the prismacolor markers.
I used my x-acto knife to cut the image out as the markers bled with the cardstock I used. I then went around the edges with a thin black pen.

Here is an example of having lotsa empty space; but I think it looks cute. The dots on either side of the "thank you" are stick on rhinestones.

I thought the saying was too cute..
thought it would be perfect to give to a
girlfriend as a "just because" card.

I dont have a particular brand of paper that I use. Its mostly from paper pads I've gotten on sale or from the paper I had put away from when I used to scrapbook a few years ago (Creative Memories). You may notice a theme throughout my crafting.. I like to spend as little money as possible lol.

The images I use are mostly digi stamps. I do have and enjoy using regular stamps but I see the digital ones as having more benefits:
- They dont take up any space
- Cost less
- Dont use as much ink (saving $ and space)
- Ability to make them whatever size needed

Tomorrow I will post a few links to online stores with great digi stamps
