I watched a video by http://stampinwithsandi.com/create-bridge-card/ and made a simple practice card, then a quick, easy one. I've also been trying my hand at shadow and diaorama cards. They aren't hard and really look so cool. I did make a card using salt but didn't get terrific results with those and didn't get mine assembled in time for Loll and Bonnie's challenge. So today I'm sharing my bridge cards. The first one is the practice one and the second is my simple one.

I have put away all the supplies used for my other cards that aren't posted yet. I can never remember all the brands I used after I put things away and  I can't start another card unless I finish one and clean up before I do another one. Anal I know but I can't work when things are messy, plus I lose things if I don't put them back. The reason for this little story is I'm thinking I won't list all the products I used on cards. I think most of us use or have seen the same products and know what they are so if I use something you would like to know about just email or comment and I will let you know. Is that okay?
Be kind to one another.

  1. They are both so beautiful!! I love the bridge design!! The details you added are just perfect!! I wish I put things away after I finished one card. Instead, I pull out items for the next one until I am shoving things out of the way just to create!! It's madness!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

  2. These are just adorable, Brenda! I could create with you at your place, but you'd go crazy at mine--always a mess!

  4. Hi Brenda, two great cards with a new to me technique to check out, thanks for the link to youtube. I had to giggle about how tidy you like things to be, my desk is always a mess, with bits and pieces left over and out from previous projects, I eventually get annoyed with myself and have a good tidy up but mostly messy.... have a wonderful week...

  5. Your cards are fantastic and both so well done. I am afraid I am always in a mess when I craft so I only clear the deck when extra guests have to eat at the kitchen table. That is my crafting surface. LOL

  6. I am folding challenged so I'm extra impressed with your cards, Brenda! Love them! I've started keeping a 3 x 3 sticky note pad and pencil on my work table. I try to remember to write what I used on the card and stick the note inside before I clean up. The system works well as long as I don't get too excited and forget to write everything down. :>)

  8. How terrific these are, Brenda! I'll bet they are so fun to make!! I'm your twin when it comes to crafting habits. I have to clean it all up between designs. I could be self-deprecating and say I think it's because I'm simple-minded, but I don't want to insult you in the process, lol!! Hugs, Darnell
