This week's cards

I'm back with 2 cards I made this past week.   I made the 1st one for a friends Birthday on Friday and she loved it, thankfully.  The dress and boots are slightly popped up with foam tape.  The 2nd card was for a sweet friends 1st baby and her shower, she's due in 6 wks!  We knew it's gonna be a girl so geared the card for a little girl.  I also added her baby's initials to the drawer fronts......
Both where fun to make.  Hope you enjoyed seeing them.  And Thank you so much for coming by for a visit.

Until next time,

Red, Orange and Teal? Really....

Hello again.  I found some time today to get 2 more cards done.  1st one is for a group challenge and must be sent to one of the group members of our choosing.  We had to use Red, Orange and Teal.  I actually chose the challenge colors this time.  Why, I do not know, but i am happy to say I am thrilled with these 2 cards!   Made on Water color paper with distress inks and Stencil.  Sentiment word stamps stamped on vellum and are from Catherine Pooler.  The flowers and leaves are from Altenew and colored with water color pencils and baby oil and attached with foam tape.  added two orange bling to corners of vellum.  2nd cad done same way but no flowers attached.  I was pleasantly surprised with these and really like them......

Until next time

Masculine Card

Happy Hump Day, has been a while since I have heard anyone say that!  So I finally got my computer photo program to cooperate and let me load this card I made for one of my DH's male friend's.  The sprocket looking dies are from Sizzix and the birthday cake is from Catherine Pooler. The sprocket is to pieces (corners) and just used stamping up fine tip glue to attach and the cake stamp is 3 separate layers and then the candle and the little black dot trim is another stamp and then I fussy cut it out and attached with glue runner.  I choose the blue, grey and black just because I thought it made for a more masculine card.  And that's all there was to it. Oh and I forgot to snap a pic but the inside has a few sprockets in the top and bottom corners and a stamped Birthday sentiment.  There you have it all done and already mailed.  Now off to make some more cards, need birthday, baby shower and challenge card, but only the shower card is needed immediately.  Wish me luck because I have no ideas at all for it......Thanks for popping in to visit and have a wonderful summery day.

Until next ime,

Get Well Card

Hello friends.... just popping in to share a card I made for my step Mom who was not doing so well.  She was in the hospital but is now home, not 100% but is on the mend.  I made this card to let her know we were thinking about her. And she really liked it........ I used a new stamp set from Catherine Pooler's new Store. It's called wild blooms and I love it.  I embossed with versa mark then added color directly on top of the versa mark then stamped and heated up.   Also embossed the sentiment the same way and added few sequins and there you have it!  I have another card made and took a picture but having trouble getting it to copy here.  I 'll keep trying, it's bound to work at some point......... Anyway that' it for today.  Happy Monday evening all.

Until next time,
