Ok, so I am even more addicted to card making than I have been in awhile. I want to make cards for everything and anything. As you can imagine, my stash is getting quite big and varied to say the very least. Here is a Christmas card I made yesterday. I love color blocking and who doesn’t love the traditional red and green combination for
I used one of the stamps from “Holiday Line up” by Stampin Up for this card. How adorable are snowmen? I have big plans for them for Christmas cards….you will be seeing these guys (and the other 2 stamps in the set) quite a bit on my blog!
Next up is a cute “puddy cat” card. I embossed water paper (love, love, love that stuff) and then I colored the embossing with a lead pencil.
I love the texture of water paper….coloring on it almost seems like the kitty is real!
Next up: A birthday card. I got some paper doilies and gorgeous paper from a Stampin Up product share. I couldn’t wait to play with this stuff!
Ta Daa….here’s my card:
And there’s one more! A sweet neighbor of mine just became a nanny for the first time. I love to talk to her because I know the wonderful experience she has in store. I told her to get used to wearing her “heart on her sleeve” because I know her heart will be ready to explode when she looks at that sweet face! I decided to give a gift to the little girl but I wanted to address it to her. Here is the card I made.
Gotta be honest….I encountered a few bo boos on this one. First I stamped the sentiment on the wrong side and then I stamped it crooked. Then I got the card all done and realized that it opened up side down and had to cut the card apart and use a card blank. Oh my, it was one of those days. After this card I figured it was just as well to put my scissors away for the night haha. Stay tuned as I have plans for a “nanny and poppy” card tonite!
Cheers & have a wonderful day!
