Vintage Card

Love this card!  It has a vintage look.  I distress the edges of the brown card, the pink background, the beige background with the stamped flowers and also the sentiment circles.  You can use any flower stamp you wish.  I colored them with pink and green colored pencils.  I added a pink ribbon the the front of the brown card before I added the pink background.  On the pink I punched scalloped edging.  This is very basic, but you could use any stamps, any colors, and any sentiment.  Just use your imagination.  The possibilities are endless.  Have fun!

Still stuck in the house because of the cold temps and lots of snow.  Today the temps are going up so the snow should melt some.  I am still making cards and more cards.  Enjoy.

I love cards made using black and white.  I made these from coordinating paper.  I added flowers from Michael's.  I printed the sentiments on my PC and used my Big Shot for the borders.    I always add a design on the inside, too.  With these I stamped a small flower and then left it blank so the card can be used for any occasion.  I also always add a cross to the back and a label with my info in case the receiver wants to order future cards from me.

Miscellaneous Cards

It's 7 degrees outside and going down to -10 tonight.  We have 15 inches of snow and expecting more tomorrow.  Praying that our electricity doesn't go off.  If it does, at least we have gas logs in the fireplace.  I can't get out of my drive way so thought I would make a few cards.  I don't think you need instructions as to how to make them.  They are pretty easy as you can see.  Most of my ideas are not original.  I get them for other stampers or from Pinterest.

Sesame Street Card

Sesame Card
This was made for my granddaughter who is turning 2.  It's made by using yellow, red, and blue card stock punched from a 1 3/4 inch scallop punch.  I then added googly eyes to each and a black circle for the mouths of Cookie Monster and Elmo and used yellow for the beak on Big Bird.  Don't forget to add a cookie for Cookie Monster.

Birthday Foil Card

Birthday Foil Card
This is an easy one.  I embossed using foil paper then mounted it onto black card stock.  Then mounted it onto white card stock card.  I embellished it with a gift stamp using black ink which was mounted onto black, mounted onto white.  To cute!

Bee Well Card

Bee Well
This is a great simple get well card.  The card is out of white card stock - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Then cut 4 x 5 1/4 black card stock and 3 3/4 x 5 yellow card stock.  Run yellow through Big Shot using any embossing folder you choose and mount onto black.  Add black ribbon with bow.  Then just stamp bees on white card stock, cut out with 2 inch circle punch, mount onto larger black circle.  I did color the bees and the edges of the white circle before mounting.

Easter Cards

Refresh, Renew, Rejoice

Happy Easter
I made these cards today at a card workshop.  Several of my friends got together and made cards.  They are beautiful.  The Happy Easter card is made by embossing on velum and then adding ink to the back to bring out some color to the lace.It's hard to see in the photo, but the colors are purple and green.  Added lace and a sentiment and it's done.  Love it!  The Refresh, Renew, Rejoice card was stamped with a flower stamp, then the flowers were colored the Stampin Up Blendables.  Then placed on an embossed sheet of card stock, added ribbon, and added a sentiment.

Workshop Cards

These are some cards made at my card workshop on Saturday.  I invited a few friends and we made several cards.  It was a nice girls day out.

Tissue Paper Card

For this card I stamped a flower, stems, and sentiment on a piece of tissue paper.  Then I wadded up the tissue paper.  Then I smoothed it out and glued it onto a white card stock, which was then mounted on the purple card stock. I then mounted it onto a green card.  So easy and cute.

Get Well Card

This is an easy one, too.  Mount a 2 inch patterned card stock onto a background to match the flower you want to use.  I mount a coordinated paper flower I got at Michael's and put a pearl in the center.  You can add any sentiment you want.  I used a get well soon sentiment.

Valentine's Day Card

It's almost Valentine's Day so we had to make a Valentine card.  I cut out a tan envelope from card stock using my Cricut, tied a ribbon around it, and placed it on pink card stock.  From coordinating paper I added punched out hearts making them look like they were falling out of the card.   Then stamped sentiment on to a circle and mounted it to a scallop.  Too, cute!

Happy Birthday Card
Just used scraps for this one.  I mounted 4 different coordinating papers onto black card stock, glued them all to white card stock, added ovals, and sentiment.  Very easy and you can put those scraps to good use.

Two Pocket Card

This one is fun!  Tricky to fold, but cute.  You can add coordinating tags or use as a gift card holder.
I got the instructions from:
This is my test card so it is very plain, but you can get the idea.  You just need to use card stock with a pattern on both sides.
