for starters this is a beautiful card May I suggest getting rid of the patterned paper!!

What if you did it the other way around. Cut around the image and pop it up on some foam dimensional dots onto a patterned paper piece?

its such a beautifully coloured picture...you definitely don't want to ruin this card haha

Hi. I am really looking forward to this forum. I am new to stamping/card making and just started a few weeks back. I would love to get some suggestion of how can I improve my cards with affordable techniques without requiring any too fancy stuff. Thanks...

Any suggestions for this one?

Hello and welcome to SCS! This is a good place to post a card to ask for different ideas. For some reason, no one responded to your post. Sorry about that.

I like your card. Good color combos and image on the inside. How about decorating the front more. Maybe stamping or drawing flowers (for the butterfly), or drawing curling waves to give the impression of wind. A ribbon bow? If you have any food wrappers or packaging materials, cut some flowers out of that and layer them on the card front.

Hi, welcome to SplitcoastStampers! I have learned so much since joining! One tip I picked up is to use lots of white! This contrast makes your colors more vibrant and your features pop.
So for example, your teal pull-out could be white. You could incorporate teal color in your other embellishments, which will highlight the teal in your butterfly (which I love, by the way).
And it's cheap! Look in the CAS gallery for more inspiration.
I hope this is helpful. Keep making cards. We are all improving as we go along. A work in progress!

Default Bow or no bow?

I'm making these tags to put on bottles of frappuccinos for our employees on black Friday.

With Bow. Wait, how many of these do you have to make? If a lot, can you buy the bow already made?

Default Utah card

Hey all! I'm moving to salt lake city utah and i have this great idea for a change of address card. This is how far i got so far. Any suggestions on how to proceed? I'm thinking a plane or a map?

Cute idea to use the state outline as the card base. Here's a couple of ideas besides the plane or map

A moving truck with Salt Lake City Bound on the side panel
People next to a signpost with the address, could be stick people if you can't find an image
A house with the new address on it

I would look at the Utah state web site for major attractions. I know there is Temple Square that everyone goes to see, and of course the great Salt Lake (that would look nice on a card). The mountains, skiing, desert hiking... all kinds of outdoor activities to portray or mountain scenes.

Or you could portray your move like the original Mormons who pulled carts for miles and miles with their belongings to Utah.

I'm new to SCS. When I saw this topic, I knew I had to take a peek! I love getting constructive feedback on my cards, and I love to help, too. I have a few cards I could use some help with. Anybody still on this thread?

Cool! This is my first time ever writing on the message boards. I've only been on SCS for a few weeks, and I've really only talked to one other person: CherylQuilts, who has commented the loveliest comments on my uploaded cards...she is the sweetest! We have talked in a message thing once. Can't seem to find any threads that aren't from years ago. Lol, maybe it's bc I'm a newb and not looking in the correct places. I just didn't wanna post to a dead thread. But if people will come and talk, and help, I'm always looking for constructive feedback on my work. I have several cards (in every stage of the process from done, but seem to be missing something all the way up to just colored stamped images that I have lying around) that have sat on my desk for ages bc I'm stuck. Some of them have finally gotten finished and turned into great cards, but others are still sitting there.

And my husband's no help, lol. He loves (or "loves"--I'm not sure which, bc he seems to listen, even though I'm sure he's bored to tears, bless his heart) all of my cards and says I'm too hard on myself and it "looks great." As wonderful as it is to hear at times, it is frustrating bc I need real feedback, not just compliments. But anyway, I digress... Lol.

Like Cindy, I'm subscribed to the thread. If you want feedback on an unfinished card, the best thing is to attach it to a new post in this thread, since the gallery is for finished creations.. If it's a finished card in your gallery that you think needs a little something extra, you can post a direct link to the card.


PS if you're looking for recent posts, just look over to the left on any forum page. There are a couple of boxes with handy quick links to take you to things like your gallery, the swap forum, the challenge forum...and one is New Posts. (This also covers the non-stamping related sections, so it may seem like a lot of new posts.)
And yes, Cheryl is so sweet.

(And I don't think I'm the only one that this happens to ) So here is your chance to post a link to one of your cards that needs 'help' and we'll give it some feedback!!

There aren't really any 'rules', but please please PLEASE keep in mind that this is constructive criticism (keyword: constructive!!) Be positive in your replies, and try to give a suggestion as to how the card could be improved (e.g. 'this card could use some brads in the lower corner')

I guess I'll start with a card that I have never liked I just don't know what's wrong with it!! It is probably the ugliest card in my gallery (correction: it IS the ugliest card in my gallery!!) but I don't know how to improve it!!! Thoughts?? Gingham Wagon

Anyway have fun, and enjoy the constructive criticism fellow SCS'ers have to offer on your magnificent creations!!!

I think I would use a soft grey copic marker and shadow under the wheels and wagon to "anchor" and then die cut a wavy banner in one of the soft flower colors and emboss the greeting in black on the banner.

Ok! Sorry it's taken so long to respond. The holidays...lol. Kinda glad and sad they're over. Anyway.. I will take some photos of the cards I'm struggling with, and see if you guys can give me any pointers. And, thank you so much for your compliment of my cards! It means a lot. I'm still a newbie. Well, maybe a rookie? Hmm? Anyway...lol.
