Happy Birthday To You

I wanted to try a clean and simple card. I don't normally make clean and simple cards, but wanted to try anyway. I think it turned out okay, not the greatest, but it will work for me.
With the fall colors it was perfect for the flowers.
I stamped the flowers on orange card stock and colored in the centers with a Tombow Marker. After rounding the corners, I added the brads. Then I added a more orangy color for my greeting. I know the stamp is from SU, but can't remember the set it come from. The flower stamp is from Stampendous I think. A very clean and simple card. Love those cards that doesn't take hours to complete.

Thank You Friends

Thank You friend...
Isn't this the cutest card with all the animals lending helping hand.
I choose to use up the green paper that I had laying around.
And the DP went with it perfect.
I added a touch of mustard card stock because it was close to the DP color.
Colored with water color pencils and blended with water. I tried the Tombow markers and they were to bold for what I was looking for.
Then I added the circles and the scallop circle to make my sentiment tag.
I used black stickles to make the dots around the scallop circle, and added the gold brad in the middle of the You words.
I used Old Olive Ink for the sentiment.

September Stamps from Great Impressions

Aren't these stamps awesome...
I just love to make Halloween Cards. It is one of my most favorite holidays.

I hope to post my cards I made with these soon.
If you are interested in any of these stamps, contact me.

Especially for you

This is another card from my August Workshop. I thought I would use a pink color for the Anniversary Card. And the DP with the hearts. Perfect for the theme Anniversary.
I stamped and colored the cluster of flowers (which is the stamp of the month for August) with Tombow Markers. And them I added a dot of Yellow Stickles to the center of the flowers.
And the inside of the card has a half fold showing some of the inside when the card is shut. Great design for the butterflies and dragons. It adds to the whole card whether it is shut or open. I added the bow so it looked like it was around the flower stem.

Merry Christmas Lineup Snowmans

Don't you just love Snowman's? These snowmans are really colorful and cute. Not your usual Christmas Colors, but I think the more colorful, the more cheery it seems. Love the big Sheer Bow with the snowflake and rhinestone. Makes the card sparkle. I used the word window punch to put my sentiment on and glued it on the DP. With the Snowmans popped up, I thought the words might look better down on the DP.

Stamps: Stampin Up
Paper: My stash and DP from the Christmas Stacker 2009
Embellishments: Rhinestones, MS Snowflake punch and White Sheer Ribbon
Markers: Tombow's
Thank You for checking out my Christmas Cards.
Have a great evening...

Tis the Season...

Everyone is making all these punch art animals, so I seen the Cardinal on someone's blog and I thought I would try it. I think it is kind of cute, but nothing like the Two Step bird. My cardinal is a little bit puggy, but cute in his own way. Love the colors of the card and really Christmasy with the snowflake embossed in the background.

Inside of Card
Stamps: Not sure of where they come from.

Thank You for stopping at my blog. I did these Christmas Cards in July for my Workshop and I wanted to get them on here before Christmas. I hope I don't over load you with to much Christmas Cards.

Fall is on it's way

Thought I would try my luck at a fall card and hope the weather turns a little cooler also.
This is an older stamp from Great Impressions. I made a card back in 2008 and thought I would ink it up again. This is so pretty with the fall colors. Just love it. I tried another card with putting brown flower soft in the centers of the flowers, but I was doing this card for one of my workshops and they don't do well with the flower soft, so I just colored in the centers with a Tombow marker. I think it turned out okay with the marker. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I stamped it on ivory paper and punched out a little green leaf to add color to the tag.
The Design Paper is from Bo Bunny and it was also back in 2008 when I bought it. Amazing that I still had some left.
Inside of the card.

Ice cream anyone?

With the weather we have been having, the ice cream cone sure looks good.
I tried to make the colors look so yummy.
(Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry).
I just love this stamp set. Each scoop is cut out separately and was the chocolate one ever hard to see to cut out. The other ones were really easy to cut out. But all in all, it was very easy to glue together. I popped it up so it would stand off the white paper.
Cute huh?

It's All About The Journey

Isn't this the cutest bike. Very old looking for sure.
It looks awesome with the peach color.
I added the pink brads in the center of each wheel
the flowers also matches the color, too.
The rick rack is the new Die-Namics die from My Favorite Things.
Just love them.
So easy to make with the cuttlebug.
I added diamond rhinestones on each corner
to add some more bling.
And last I added the peach ribbon over top of the rick rack.
