My grandson Daniel

My daughter did this digital scrapbook page of her second son, Daniel.  It was so cute, I had to share.

Elephant Card

Elephants may never forget but I think I did!  I forgot to post this cute card. The stamps are from High Hopes. I colored it with Copic markers. I believe I sent it to my grandson, Benjamin, for his birthday.

A is for Africa

This is a second A card. I wish it showed the colors better. The purple looking layer is a metallic so it doesn't really photo well.

I brayered the background and then stamped the image over it.Then I colored the image a little. The word Africa was part of a package label.

Wiper Cards

The technique theme for JustCards was a wiper card.
The basic instructions came from this video
I used the new Stampin Up bird punch on it. "Embrace Life" is also a Stampin Up image.
I did another one because Snoopy is ill. I helped out by filling her swaps.  The bee images were from a swap.

The words are acrylic sticker letters.

The butterflies are done with a Stampin Up die. The bees are colored with Copics.

Father Day Pop Up

Pretty card, huh? : ) Well, I like it but the real fun is inside.  I got a wonderful bargain at . I had wanted this die for a while. The front of the card is done with some very pretty paper. The words are a sticker. The shells are cut with a cuttlebig die.

Here is the card open.  It just makes me smile. I think it will work with a camp themed card too. Pop up cards are such fun!!

Here is a close up. Can you believe this folds close?!?!

A is for Aztec

This card is part of the continuing alphabet swap on JustCards. I was happy how it came out.  The image is from I Brake for Stamps. I used red embossing powder on black paper.  The teal pieces are squares of handmade paper.

I did two cards with flowers this last weekend. If you are my partner in the Flower swap on Card Crafts, look away! lol.  Well, you won't know which one I sent you.

Both of these cards are done on scraps of paper.  I designed the cards around the paper. I cut the background shapes with my Slice. The word stamps are from Stampin Up.  The flowers on both cards were colored with Copics.


The image in this second card was given to me in a swap.  Not very fancy but I was happy with them both.

Time Swap

This is swap from Card Crafts .  The hands on the clock moved. The clock was an image I got from a swap.  The saying is on an acrylic. It says : The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.
