Rest, Relax, and Repeat Beach Scene Card

I made this beach scene card using off white colored cardstock that I tapped into different colors of ink to give it the textured look. I wish I would have made more than just for this card. Thanks for looking.

Floral Friday Green Scalloped circle flowers cards

I made these cards using some busy patterned paper by using a scalloped circle punch to get the flower. The flower was lost in the patterned paper. I think it looks great on these four cards. I was happy to find that another flower left over so I could cover up the area by the diagonal sentiment. Thanks for looking.

The background is black cardstock. It was dried embossed with the mosaic embossing folder by Stampin Up. That folder has a matching stamp set and matching punch. I punched the mosaic punches out of red cardstock and glued them into the dry embossed pattern. I cut the cat out using my Cricut. Thanks for looking.

Birthday Card Orange balloon cards

I think the top card is my favorite of all of my balloon cards. The patterned paper by Studio Calico was inked with distress Inc. The fence at the bottom is by Tim Holtz. The border punch is by Martha Stewart. The border patterned paper is by Colorbok.

For the second card, a used patterned paper by Stampin Up. The balloon is on a Sizzix die cut. I inked the white cardstock to look like the sky and the grass. I used my sewing machine to make a string for the balloon.

After I took the picture noticed a blemish in the white die cut. So I added this die cut sentiment to cover it up. I used a brad for the dot on the i.

Thanks for looking.

Easter Cards in Different shades of Greens

The patterned papers are old and by Provo Craft and K and Co. The top card uses that same embossing folder that I've used all week. The center embossed area works well with any cross. That cross is by Spellbinders and I inked the paper before I removed it from the die.
The second card, the cross is a stamp that I heat embossed with silver embossing powder. That square patterned paper has been stamped with a clear background stamp again very old. Thanks for looking

On the 1st card, I really like how I did the floss. That sounded kind of cocky. ;) I sewed floss to the ends of the sentiment. Idk where I saw that from but you may see it again.

Manly Monday Sewn Banner birthday cards

Cindy Cre8iveCindy

The patterned paper of the blue card with screw heads is by Adorn It. The pennants are Hero Arts stamps and I stamped the Close to my Heart alphabet letters on top of each. I use my sewing machine to connect the penanent across the top with blue thread. The birthday die cut is by Papertrey Ink. Problem with doing these banners on a card is that they end up being five and 3/ fours x 4 instead of my usual 5 1/2 x 4. So I have to make a new card base for them which is something I’m not used to doing. I buy my card bases from Michael’s they come with the envelopes and although they are thin and not the larger pound cardstock they are convenient. Also, I don’t like to make my own card bases. The cutting, scoring is not the greatest on my wrist, then you have color choices, and then you have to buy envelopes. Nah. I’ll buy the pre-made. As a matter of fact, I was running out of white cards so I purchased enough packs to get free shipping from Hobby Lobby. Well Hobby Lobby cards are size 4.25 x 5.5 and Michael’s card size is 4 x 5.5. I should write a post it note on my computer to be reminded.

It's Time for a Birthday for a Lady Card

I have a happy birthday card on the inside it says “Time for another birthday”. I cut out the pink frame with my Cricut. I put black behind it to give it a base. The die cut was too big for the card front. I had to cut it down until the die cut fit the Preston-made  card base. The clock die cut is by The Girl’s Paperie. The letter stamps are by the Close to my Heart. The heart die cut was on the floor and and the white fit well in between the two words. I just noticed that I used a corner rounder by Creative Memories on the card base.  I found some examples on my blog that use a clock and are referring to birthday.  have to do with time This card uses die cuts from the same ephemera pack  Girly card with a die cut from the same ephemera pack . Other similar cards for a guy are in the 3 different links below.

Manly Monday green and blue presents Birthday Cards

I’m using that same Stampin Up birthday stamp set that I use a lot. The green card, the patterned paper is a Christmas paper by Bo Bunny. The scallop punch that matches the sentiment stamp is by Stampin Up. The die cuts are ones that I bought off of eBay. The deckled lines above and below the center strip on both cards are rub-ons by Die Cuts with a View. 
For the 2nd card uses blue card and has a Spellbinders die cut using patterned paper by Little Yellow Bicycle. The chipboard on top of the die cut is unknown and I fussy cut the stamped image of a present. This is taking me forever to write this post. I have to be done. Grammar errors and all. :)
