Interactive Tech Talk GKD hop!


virus wiper

I have a few fun interactive cards to share with you using the new set Tech Talk, illustrated by Melanie for Gina K. Designs!  I know a lot of ladies are so excited because either they are computer lovers or their hubbies are and finally have a set to use for them!   For my first card, I made a wiper – how fun are they?!  If you haven’t made one yet, WHAT are you waiting for?  So easy to follow and quick to put together.  Are you in LOVE with the new Ocean Mist blue pure luxury cardstock Gina released this month like I am?  Well, I was thrilled to see how beautifully it coordinates with Black Onyx and Rocket Red so I used it for this card and made some fun circles behind the computer for a cheerful get well card!

Here is the card with the wiper up – notice the sad face on the outside and happy face with the wiper?  I thought that was a fun before & after—you know how miserable it is when you’re sick and how happy you are when you get better?  That’s the feelings I was intent on displaying with this card.

spinner 1 On my next card, I wanted to create a standard spinner card – and suspended my computer with some of my jewelry stretch cord.  I kept the design simple but in order to accommodate the big computer, I had to use the biggest scallop circle I had!  The card base is soft sand and the pattern paper is Basic Grey bittersweet – one of my all-time favorites!

Here is the back of the computer – I love mirror images like this you can have fun with making two-sided! 

This would be a fun card to send to a blogging friend – I have a lot I can send it to!  Will it be you?!
