Last Weeks Cards

Hello Crafty friends!  I made several cards last week and am just finding the time to share them with you now.  As you know I belong to Stamp Nation and Stamp Junkies (on face book) groups.  The new thing this year seems to stencils and I wanted to play with the few I had so these are the cards I came up with.  Stamp Nation had a bunch of stencil classes going on and Stamp Junkies had a challenge so I combined the two and made the cards here.   Both are done with stencils I bought years ago from Walmart and never used.  I really like the way the came out and both are going in the mail tomorrow to 2 other crafty card maker friends.  Hope you like them as much as I do and that maybe I'll inspire you to play with your stencils too, LOL.....

That's it peeps.  Hope you dig out your stencils and make some cool cards.  I will be doing more with them I'm sure of it.......

Until Next Time,

2nd Christmas card 2016

OK peeps, here's my 2nd card made for Christmas 2016.   I have entered this card in the Christmas Card Challenge over at: Weekly Christmas card Challenge.   All that is required is that the card be for Christmas or Winter related and then they have a twist that you can or can not do with the card.  This week it was a Color optional thing.  Here are the colors we could use and I liked them so hence my card.  Made with Outline stickers and Alcohol Markers and some Glitter Paper, that all!  Easy Peasy and I am liking it actually...

Thats all I got for you.... Have a happy fabulous Monday where ever you are.................

Until Next Time,

A few more cards to start off the New Year

Hello again Peeps.  Today I want to share 3 cards, all made for Friends.  Two are birthday cards and one is a Sympathy card.   First up is the Sympathy Card, background was again made with my Brusho Powders, Can you tell I really like using these, LOL.  Then stamped the flowers and butterfly in versa mark, black ink.  I then fussy cut a shape for the sentiment and stamped it in the same black ink.  Attached sentiment to card with pop dots. 

 UP next is a birthday card for Man who is a friend of a friend and we do not know to well as of yet, but we where invited to help celebrate his birthday so I  needed to make a card.  All I knew is that he loves to feed the deer in his yard so hence this card came to mind.  The tree die is form Taylored Expressions and the deer is Spellbinders.  And the Happy Birthday dies I can not recall....sorry

And now for the last and my favorite card....  This one is for My Mom's best friend, Jean, who we had a surprise party for earlier today.  And she loved the card! YAY!   I used an edibility's die from Crafter's Companion for the top and bottom back pieces.  Added some bling stones after I embossed the pieces with a lattice folder.  I put the bling where the lattice crossed.   I also embossed some vellum with a floral embossing folder and topped the other to die pieces to it top and bottom.  Then added the flowers (added fine glitter to them) and a Hat Pin with some spare beads to match.  Also stamped the sentiment in black versa mark ink.  I think that's it for this card.  It's one of my favorites.  And Jean loved so it made me happy.................

Well here's to another year of card making, so far so good.  Have a wonderful Sunday and hope you are having fun doing what you love....

Until next time

1st Christmas Card for 2016

Hi friends, I joined a challenge site for Christmas card making.  It's called: Christmas Card Challenges.  I joined in an effort to get me to make more cards so I won't be pushing in December to get all my cards made, we shall see if this works.  Sounded like a good idea anyway.  So here is the 1st card I made.  Used my Brusho Powders to make the back ground then stamped the different snowflakes all over for the background.  The stamps are from The Ton, I is the sentiment.  Was a very quick card to make and I will probably make a few more like it as I like easy!  
Now for the card:

So we shall see if I am able to keep up, I hope so......

Until next time
