My beautician ordered lots of boxes of cards from me. Lani is home from Boston so she helped me box up the cards real pretty and we made these candy canes to put inside the box. The whole package came out real cute.
I am making card kits to take with me to Cozy Crop House in May. I was using my distress inks and my heat gun when my heat gun decided to die on me. So I got out some papers and created this pretty little card kit. I got this new heart die yesterday at Joann's for 40% off and I love it. Oh yea, the washi tape was buy one, get one free!!!!
I have had this green paper forever and decided today that I was going to use it up. I DID IT! I used up every little scrap I had. So glad to get rid of it as I have had it hanging around for a while. The top card uses OWH sketch 214. The middle card uses OWH sketch 91. The bottom card is OWH sketch 83. The paper is from a 6 x 6 pad from Walmart. All the stamps are from Hobby Lobby. All the rest of the card stock is from Hollo's paper store. Thanks to my friend Cindy for the mojo today!!!
Recently an elderly friend gave me all her old calendars and pockets calendars that had pictures of light houses on them. She asked me to make cards with all those pictures.
She wanted NO embellishments, buttons, bows or anything like that. She wanted them very flat so she could mail them. I was WAY out of my comfort zone here!!!! Some of the pictures were very dull so I tried using busy paper or bright paper to jazz them up a little. These were probably the hardest cards I have ever had to make!!! I made her a total of 35 cards. I am so READY to get back to ribbons, flowers, buttons and jewels!!!
I am in the process of moving my craft room from the basement, up to the second floor in my daughter's former bedroom. In the may-lay of moving I found a bunch of these white circle sentiments already cut out. I decided to jazz them up with 2 different dies and there you go a perfect little card.
The black and white paper and the polka dot ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. The rest of all the paper came from Hollo's paper store. The border punch is from Fiscars. The dies I used are a plain circle for the white paper, the black die cut is Nestabilities lacy circles and the pink die cut is Nestabilities scalloped circles.
I liked how these turned out so I made 9 of them for my next box to Operation Write Home.
This is a masculine birthday card in the colors of the Seattle Seahawks who were playing in the Super Bowl this weekend. I actually want the Denver Broncos to win but I could not bring myself to make a card in blue and orange!
My friend Cindy has been encouraging me to post more cards on my blog in 2014. I decided to use up some of my scrap pile and make cards just with scraps. Here is a selection that I worked on last week. I know these are not the best pictures and I am working on a light box thanks to Cindy and Paula. It is too frigidly cold to go out and get the supplies for it right now but at least I can tell Cindy that I have a blog post!!! Hope you enjoy!
