Cupcake Card

This card is for our picnic next month. I made 3 cards for it as it had to be suagr and spice and everything nice. so everything I made for it is sweet. I even done some ice cream cards for it. this is another template i printed of valita's blog and just click on the blog address for her below where the strawberry card.

I use versamrk ink to stamp the 3 layers of icing, and then glue and dazzling diamonds on it and some on the cherry also. made it look to me like you just sprinkled it on by hand and it goes wherever it wants. the verse is from stampin up. I used a black gel pen for stitching lines.

Strawberry Card

This is my version of the strawberry card from a pattern I printed out from Valita's blog. to see the pattern and more patterns she on there to share please go here: she also has some videos you can watch also. she makes some wonderful 3-D flowers for onto of the box.
On this card I used real red and certain celery by stampin up. the stamps used was hero arts on the red CS and posh on the green CS. Inside the card I went to microsoft word and printed out the saying from one of the fonts there. I then cut it up so i could put them at an angle. this was so simple and I wanted to make this strawberry card.

Ice Cream Sundae

here is a card that I had half finished so I finished it tonight. it is made for the picnic next we are having and I am making sweet cards in ice cream and cupckaes for the crafting part. the ribbon is from stampin up and it is retired. the stamp I forget who it is buy but if I find out will put it on here. the corner rounder is from fiskars. I also used crystal glaze on the glass,straw, and cherry to make it more real like.I also used white flock on the whip cream part.

Fall Layout

Ok, I did a fall layout but without any pics as this way i can just add the picture when I am ready. everything on here is handmade and punched out as that is where the leaves came from 2 punches but are unknown. the squares with the stamped leaves are scraps that I had. so i decided to use them on here.

Made from scrap pieces

here is 2 more that was made from scraps. the images on the bottom one are from stampin up and done in versamark only. I set the eyelets with the anywhere setter. my cropadile would not fit to do these. top one I used glue and dazzling diamonds from stampin up. just to offset one flower and the border between purple and cream.

First christmas this year

here is my very first christams this year that I decided to make right now. the image is unkown unmounted stamp which i white ink on it. the verse is unmounted and unknown also. I used the same corner punch on here but without corner thing on it so I could use it on a straight edge.for me it is a simple and a fast one also.

Easter layout

this layout i did of easter and it is randy and his dad along time ago way before me. :) in the one pic you can see the title that I did. paperpiecing. in the next pic I paperpieced a bunny in a cracked egg that is entirely made from craft foam. I have a pattern that I used for paperpiecing. I used a black and white gel pen on these make the letters I used a template that I had and traced them and cut them out by hand also.

Odds and Ends

these cards I made up using scraps while i was out one night scrapbooking. i finished my layout and had these scraps left over so i made cards instead and all I had to do is add the image and a saying. everything on these cards leftovers, even the ribbon. the images are from stampin up.

Happy birthday

this card didn't show up to great as it is suppose to be a pink card. it6 turned out white. oh well. this card i made for my twin sister mary for our birthday next month. the sentiment is stampin up. the image is from TAC.I used markers to color it in. i do not normally do that as i used color pencils mostly but had to try my first with markers.the punch I took the edge off so i could use it on the edge as you see. normally it is used for corners only.
