More Ocean Samples

Gecko Glalz  is continuing this summer with the theme "Ocean or Sea". Here are some unusual cards with the theme.

The first card I will probably not make very often.  It is so time-consuming.  However, I really like the way it turned out.

 One side opened.

The following card was a fairly quick and easy.  It is a flip card.

By the Sea

By the sea brings thoughts of mermaids, the theme this month at Gecko Galz.  Since I was working with mermaid images, I thought watercolor backgrounds were appropriate.

I especially like the way the image on the second card fits into my watercolor background.

Lastly I created a tag using some more images from Gecko Galz.

Don't forget that Gecko Galz has $1 Wednesday.   You can really get some outstanding image sheets for a $1.

Card for the Doc.

I had to make an unplanned trip to the Dr.'s office the other day and he waited on me so I sent a "thank you".  This was the closest I could make a stethoscope.

Under the Big Top

I treated the theme "Under the Big Top" with the following GG images.

The card below uses two of the Gecko Galz images in an unusual way.

A Little Country Charm

I know a number of the other Gecko Galz team members used farm animals for the theme "Country Charm", but I decided to use images of people who were symbolic of the theme.  I hope you enjoy seeing the cards I made.

You can't really see it, but I filled the front of this card with little raindrops made from Stckels.

Alice in Wonderland

I'm late; I'm late for an important date.  Yes it is with Alice.  Gecko Galz is everything Alice this month.  Won't  you join us for an adventure back into our childhood story.

After these cards were posted I created an Alice journal page which is shown below.  I wasn't able to  post earlier as my PC was in the shop.

The theme at Gecko Galz this month is Fairy Garden.  Here are a few samples.  The weird coloring in the main image is due to my printer running out of ink, but it was perfect for my backgrounds.  I hope you like what I created.

Winter Wonderland

Here are some Winter Wonderland ideas using the great digitals from Gecko Galz.  I hope you like what I have done with these designs.  They are part of the Customer Challenge "Let It Snow".
I trimmed the bottom of the front of this card with two different lace borders.  The flower resembles a "frozen" flower as I used some cracked glass on top.  The little snowman is raised a little with a dimensional dot.  Also if you look closely, you will see the snow on the image is also dimensional.  I  used Liquid Applique to obtain that effect.
This is a very simple card, but if you will look closely you will see that the front is a little unusual because it has aa turned up corner with the image over it revealing the base layer.

This is a very simple card.  The main feature is the tinsel trim around the image.

Using a Gecko Galz image again, I made a tag with the word "Believe" stamped on the snowman designer paper.  Using these Gecko Galz images is so much fun to use  and they are so flexible.

Tags of Christmas

During the month of December the members of the Gecko Galz Design Team are creating Christmas tags.  Today is my day.

I knew I wanted a shiny background for my Gecko Galz angel tag so I cut a box that at one time held a bottle of perfume.  After cutting it into the shape of a tag, I attached an angel on  top of a piece of lace which has been attached at the bottom of the tag.
For this tag I covered a shopping tag with Christmas designer paper that had snowflakes on it.   I attached the two Gecko Galz images and stamped a greeting.  A piece of ribbon with snowflakes on it competes this tag.

I again covered a regular tag with designer paper..  I added a Christmas sticker and cut the angel image and greeting apart and used only part of the greeting.

Please go and visit Gecko Galz Scrapbooking website to see all the sample tags from the other team members and learn about all the challenges and giveaways.
