Mother's Day card

I know this is kinda early but when making his card I thought I would make my mom's card early and get it out of the way this way I have it done. I seen on this other girls blog about a small square pocket card tutorial and I had to print to it out and make this card. So while my paint was drying for another priject that i am doing I made this. I am showing you the outside and the inside and the card for that will be inside also. This is so easy to make. I could not believe it. WOW!! I am going to be making another for my mother-in-law for mother's day.

Quilled easter card and Envy

Her is a quilled card and envy that I did for a circle journal swap that I am in. The card is on top and the envy on the bottom. I stamped the background first on the card then I quilled all that I needed and put it all together. To make the ears pink I used a bright pink marker and colored so much of the inside circle of the ears bright pink. the envy I just stamped the flower in different colors of markers, than I put some 3-D stickers on the front.

Valentine Heart Flower

I made this card with heart punch that I have. Then to make the stem of the flower I cut a heart in half to get the stem. Then I put a mini rhinestone in the center.

Making Valentines

I thought this was a very good title for this card. I used a Fiskars corners rounder on the card and a paper trimmer also from Fiskars. I used a glitter pen around the 2 hearts just to add a bit of glitz. The ribbon I have had for a couple of years. I think it makes one nice card.

Layout -My Brother

I did this layout of my brother which is a rare picture that is taken of him. The first letters of the title are chipboard letters and the rest are miss matched letters of eyelets letters and so forth. I rubberstamped my own background as I didn't have anything that I liked in pattern papers but I did have in rubberstamps so I amde my own.The shapes are craft foam that is going along with the theme, but with a splash of color.

Sweet Teddy- Challenge for Slumber cards

This is my card for a challenge on Slumber cards where you have to use Liliac on your cards. Anywhere on your cards and any image. So this is my take, the cool whip is done by doing embossing powder-white, twice; to make the glass I used the crystal effects.

Pink and Black Cards

These cards I did in pink and black except the images are the same, but not the embellishments. As you can see i used different embellishments on both types of cards. The big flower has 4 flowers besides a black brad on it. The small flower are paper flowers with black brads. Both have the black and white dotted ribbon on it.I also used a red gel pen on the small heart and the lips.

Pinki and Green

For this card I decided on the these colors. For my mat I took my ink pad and went around it for a little color. The clower is a stencil which I embossed and then I put red chalk on. I then backed it 3/4 of the way with green cardstock and grren and pink ribbon and a green button. At the bottom as you can see is the same ribbon and a button.


Here is another valentines card that I did. I stamped the hearts in different inks in the frame which I also stamped in different inks also. The heart in the center is a wooden heart which I put glitter glue on. The I Love You is a ransom letters stamps with red and pink ink. Then I just added a sheer heart ribbon . As you can see the results of my card this is what I got.
