Monocromatic Blue

I needed another monochromatic blue card. What's more blur than water. The background paper is printed water paper. The fish is from High Hopes Stamps. The ribbon is soft blur ribbon from Stampin Up. The patterned border strip is done with a cuttlebug embossing folder.

Orange Fairies

I have been busy with out of town company but today I went to Tuesday Morning and found a set of stickers and matching papers for $1.99. I am behind on birthday cards for the people cat church and used one sheet of the stickers with a sheet of the paper to make these cards. hopefully I will be able to get 4 more cards done in the morning. The only stamping is the words but even without a lot of fancy techniques, I was happy with them . the fairies are beautiful. All the stickers have been mounted on paper and then mounted dimensionally. The insides are pretty to but my camera ran out of batteries.

Graduation Cards

Tonight I made 6 graduation cards. A couple women at work bought graduation cards from me in the past and ask for more this year. The top card is for Pocatello High School and the bottom is for Century High School. We have three high schools in town so I am glad I didn't have to do one for the other school too. I am proud of the Indian because I had to change the clip art a lot to get what I needed. The bottom cards I did with an emblem from a card my son got from school when he was student of the month.

Mystery Card swap

This is a swap from Yahoo group Inkyfunstampers. We were sent an image from the group mom and then created a card from it. My card is simple but the background paper was so beautiful, I didn't feel it needed more. I colored the tulips with copic markers.

Birthday cards Galore

I have been very busy and got behind on birthday cards for the women in my church. I had to make a lot of cards quickly so I got a couple coordinated scrapbook sets from Tuesday Morning. They cam with paper and stickers. This first set was done with beautiful paper and dimensional stickers. The paper set was from K & Company.

These were done with another set of paper from K & Company. $3.99 for several sheets of paper , chipboard, and stickers. I used Vintage Photo distress ink on almost everything, even the brad on the flower. I made the flower with punches from Stampin Up.

This was done with the same set of paper as the set above. The flowers are dimensional stickers from that same kit. I did add the ribbon, which was not in the set. The corners on the center piece square was done with a Stampin Up punch.
I did them all in about 2 hours. Nothing fancy but still nice. Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do to get the task done.

Stylish Birthday card

This is different than I usually do but I wanted to do something for a friend at work that was fitting for her. This is very fitting. The background is a cuttlebug. The stamps are from Stampin Up. The face and dress are from a set called Haute Couture. The word is from a set called Wonderful Words. Hope she likes it.
