50th Anniversary

I went to a 50th wedding anniversary party yesterday and forgot to make a card. At the last minute, I put this together. The picture was on the party invite. The frame on the picture is a Spellbinders pendent die. The words are from a stamp set from Stampin Up. I was pretty pleased with it since I did it so fast.

Robot Card

I am making cards as a gift to my mother in law. I made this one today. The stamps and paper were at the local dollar store. The paper was 4 for a $1.  I colored eveything with Copics.

2011 Valentine

It is fun to have a lot of supplies on hand. I am really trying harder to use what I have though instead of getting more things. This background of the card was done with a variety of Close to My Heart stamps and Stampin Up inks. The punched border was a Stampin Up punch.  The image was colored with Copics.

2011 Birthday Candles

This was a card I sent to a woman from church. I am going to try and give birthday cards to all the woman at church this year.

The image was a gift. I am not sure who made it. I colored with Copics. The lacey background circle is done with a nestibilities die.

Magnolia Birthday

See, I have been busy! This is another quick card. I had already colored most of the image before I worked on the card.  She is so cute! The image was colored with Copics. The embossed background was another cuttlebig folder


I tried to use up images I already created and some of the scraps. This is one of them. The sailboat is from Stampin Up. The shell corners are part of a Taylored Artwork image. The background was dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  All the stamped imaged has been embossed with black embossing powder.

2011 No Stamp Card

We had a swap on JustCards for a card that was done without stamps. This was my creation. I used the Summer in Paris cartridge for the Cricut for the Eiffel tower. The word Thanks is from the George cartridge. The postage stamps are stickers.  

Birthday Card

I have been busy making cards for my mom and mother in law for a gift for them for their birthdays.  This is one of my favorites  I colored the hÄnglar and stÄnglar image with copics. I used B24, B26, Y15, Y17, E00, E11, YG06. I cut the circle and scalloped circle with a Nestibilities die. The background paper was the perfect touch finish it off.

Cricut Card

A friend lent me a cartridge for my new Cricut and I loved it so much, I had to get it myself. I can't believe I was able to get it on Ebay for about 20 with shipping. I was so excited. I love this cartridge! It is called Life is a Beach.  Above is my totally Cricut card!
