I made 3 cards today!

I don’t like this one.  Something about it, it’s just not my style.

I like this one a little better.

Maybe because it is blue.

I like blue.

I have the image on the next card stamped for months.

Just couldn’t figure out what to do with it.

I put Glossy Accents on the vases.  Don’t they look cool.

Just a little Christmas card that I made a while ago.  I found these shaped buttons in the bottom of a scrap box and thought that little tree would add a cute touch.

More Taylored Expressions

October.21.2009

I really do have  a ton of Christmas cards made already.  Plus I had time to take pictures of all of them.  So now I just need to make the time to share them with all of you.  I sure am loving these Taylored Expressions stamps and I just want to try them on everything.  I picked up some sticky back canvas by Studio on clearance at A.C. Moore a couple weeks ago and finally opened the package up.  Here is what I came up with:

I am also in love with a couple of My Mind’s Eye paper packs.  That is all I seem to be using lately.  So, on this card I stamped the image on sticky back canvas with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  Then I distressed it with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Then I painted some Candlight Shimmerz over the whole image just to make it sparkle.  I’m not sure who the brown gem flourish is from, but I think it is Making Memories.  I also used my new Fiskars All-A-Fleur embossing border punch to make a little embellishment for this card.  Then I stamped the sentiment in the upper corner with the same ink.  After the shimmerz dried i notched the sides of the stamped image and just tore the edges of the canvas off.  I had hoped for a kind of rough edge, but it sort of distorted my rectangle.  Oh well.  I still like the way it turned out.

A card for HHH

August.28.2009

Good morning!  I’m finally taking part in HHH.  This is so exciting.  Some of the gals in the forum were talking about using a tree stamp this week.  I said, “I’m in!”  I LOVE trees!  Trees and birds, but you all know that.  So, here is the card I created:

A Tree for HHH

I used the Burberry Tree stamp.  This is the cutest little tree stamp every!  It is so versatile.  I’ve had those felt leaf stickers from Target FOREVER and I thought they’d look adorable on that little tree.  This is one of my favorite cards I’ve ever made.  I just love the way it turned out.

Plenty of Buttons

I used plenty of buttons.  I started out with only 3 and I thought this needs more!  I love buttons!

I usually keep it simple with my cards, but I really like the look of ones that have a lot of detail.  So, I tried to do that with this one.   That little leaf brad is from the dollar bins at Target too!  You can find some great stuff there.  Don’t you just love that green frame.  It’s from the Chloe’s Closet line by Making Memories.  They were on clearance at Michaels.  I wish I had bought more of them.

Thanks for looking!
