2012 Favourites - Part 1

It's that time again when I showcase some of the cards I've come across this past year that really amazed me, made me happy, made me catch my breath.

There were soooo many beauties on my list, there is just so much talent out there. I managed to dwindle down my list to eleven projects today and eleven more in a couple of days.

Theresa used Alcohol and Distress Inks on this colourful card.
Lily Pad Chipboard Challenge - Card #1

How about another beauty using Alcohol Inks.  This time by the lovely Jacqueline.
Large Blossom

Can you believe Shirley used petals and leaves from plants to make this striking card.
How Does Your Garden Grow?

Love the clever use of dies on Angeline's card.

Laura made this gorgeous blossom in April.
The DIY Embellishments Challenge

And this one in August.
enjoy the journey

The mingling of colours is gorgeous in Aga's card.
thank you set

Jennifer is always so creative with her designs.  Love this fun card!

Alcohol inks on acetate are magical on this card by Sylvia.

Barb used Distress Inks to create this soft and dreamy background for her snowflakes.
Warmth of the Season

This is such a fun and clever design by Cristina.

That's it for today.  I hope you're inspired by some of these amazing creations.
