My Christmas cards and my thank you cards are the same design. I was so busy this fall and I've just gotten back into town from visiting my daughter in Cincinnati, Ohio. I was staying with her for a while after she had her first baby.

I used paper from Daisy D's and I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8 for the green mat and used Memento ink to stamp the corner leaves and to sponge around the edge. I used Memento black for the Sentiment. I used stamps from The Angel Company. It's a very simple card, I hope you like the way it turned out.

Christmas Sweets

I know it's been a while, and I'm going to do better posting. I'm now a member of Card a Day Blog were several designers get together and post a card a day. I'm really hoping this will motivate me into getting back into card making and posting my creations on my blog. Anyway here is my card. The theme is Christmas Food and whenever I get invited to dinner or just to visit at someone's house I bring a gift, during Christmas it's usually a dessert.

For this card, I kept it simple, I paper pieced a pie, I just hand cut it out. I used a retired stamp from The Angel Company. The paper I used is Heidi Grace "Jolly and Bright.

People are really surprised whenever I show up with my treat for them, I think I get some invites back because they need a dessert :)

Be sure and visit A Card a Day Blog every day to get inspired with all the different cards posted.

Pocket Peepers

Here is a card made from the new set "Pocket Peepers". I colored in the baby with prisma pencils, pop dotted him so it looks like he's looking over the border, and then used a thank you from "Thinking of You" retired set. I'm going to give this to my daugter at her baby shower so she can send out thank you's for gifts for the baby.

Another Sunflower

I wanted to participate in The Angel Company's Card a day in May, so I followed their sketch and made another sunflower card. I used a swatch of Emma paper and used the Sunshine Stamp set for the images, colored with colored pencil and blended with goo gone.


Friday, May 6, 2011

I got this Sunshine stamp set about a month ago, cut it apart and filed it, never once stamped it, so I got it out and decided to use it, I made about 7 cards, a couple were cased cards and these are 4 of mine.

This one I used the stamp as a background and made a tag out of one, very simple.

Used the same stamp and just decorated around it.

Inked the edges with burnt umber palette and used a Martha Stewart punch for the border

Used another border punch and my newest 2 1/4" scalloped punch 2" circle punch and dew drops.

Hope you enjoyed my stamps,
