3 Peachy Pinky cards

Here’s another set of cards I made to send to friends and family for my mom’s funeral. I’m really enjoying making these cards. I’ve had these things cut out or colored in but haven’t used them. Now I am. My friend calls the cards “Lick N Sticks”. Have you ever heard that expression?

This sentiment is from Current. The border punch is from Martha Stewart at EK Success out of Bazzill cardstock. The patterned paper is by Stampin Up. 



The second card , the polka dot patterned paper is by Daisy D’s and I’m not sure about the paper on the top and bottom. The square die cut is by Spellbinder. The round die cut is from Cricut. I covered it with powdered chalk mixed with paint. The flower stamp is by Stampin Up and it was stamped with black ink.


This last card the patterned paper is by Creative Memories. The tag is by Colorbok. The sentiment stamp is by Lawn Fawn. The flower stamp is by Stampin Up with matching die. Border punch is the same as above.

Just for You purple and pink

I stamped the Stampin Up flower stamp with lack ink onto white cardstock and colored it in with Copic Markers. I inked the edges with distress ink and adhered it onto black cardstock before adhering it to the pink scallop die-cut by Spellbinders. I added some green rhinestones from Michael's and some pearls by Forever in Time. The sentiment is by TPC on pink cardstock and then onto black cardstock to match the image above. The purple card base is 4.25 x 5.5, which I'm not used to using. But it was a pre-made card base that I found in my stash. It's hard to see but I sprayed the base with a gold mist by Ranger.

Crayon Resist technique

I stamped the Stampendous leaves stamp with black ink onto white cardstock. Then I colored it with SU colored pencils. From there I colored over the stamped image with a white crayon. I then inked the paper with blue distress ink and the crayon area resisted the ink.
I found the doily in my stash. I need to add a sentiment in order for me to feel it is complete

Deep Red Stamps Tree of Life Friend Cards

I used the Tree of Life stamp by Deep Red Stamps
Heat embossed in gold and then copper. Random paper on the top one and sentiment die-cut by Clearly Besotted. The bottom card is not my favorite because the sentiment is too big and looks stupid. The sentiment is vellum by Creative Memories and I use Xyron create a sticker to adhere it. The image is on a Spellbinders die-cut that was inked with distress ink. The package for the burgundy patterned paper says, "Divine Collection". Hmm. The background patterned paper is by Prima.

Balloon Thank You in different languages Card

I heat embossed this balloon thank you stamp onto Tim Holtz watercolor paper and colored it in with distress inks and a water pen. I made this card at a friend's house so the stamp is unknown. I die-cut this border die that I bought off of eBay three times. I flipped the paper over for one of the cuts of paper to get a different wave direction than the others.

10 Year Blog anniversary

On this day10 year’s ago I started my blog. Over 3150 post later I’m still here.
 It seemed appropriate to post a card I made for a 10-year cousin. So,

I took the numbers off a scrapbook paper of letters and numbers, inked them, matted a square behind them and added Creative Memories letters stickers.  The letter alphabet stamps are from Oriental Trading Co. The framed paper is unknown and the background cardstock is by Forever in Time.



Here is the first card I posted
Happy birthday card



Here is the first layout that I posted.
Summer Scents



Things on my blog are a little different because I post more cards than layouts. It's fun to look back on my style and see how it has changed.
