All things grow with love card





Here's a card I made using materials from Hot off the Press. I originally made it as a Thank You card but it was sitting around so I pulled off that sentiment and added the heart on the tag and now it is a new card!

Let's go for a ride card



Here's a card I made using some left over cards from a One Sheet Wonder card set. I needed a card for a guy so I added some stamps by Hero Arts (the top three) and Craft Secrets (the bottom one). This is supposed to show the progression of our toys from childhood into adulthood.

Cake Blindness card





Here's another card I made using the Color Me Sampler Pack from Hot off the Press. This time I used sprays for the coloring. I don't think these papers are thick enough to endure this technique. I preferred the dry coloring as it doesn't make the paper buckle.

I added an embellishment and the card is done.

Happy Anniversay Card




Here's a card I made using this idea from Club Scrap as an inspiration. I don't have a lot of stencils with large enough area to make the idea work so I had to really look through my stash of stuff. I finally found one and this is what I came up with.  I used watercolor paper and then adhered that to an extra card base I had that was a background of glitter.

Happy Birthday (have a cold one) card





This is another card made with the Color Me Sampler Pack from Hot off the Press. I used a few different shades of blue Brilliance Inks, rounded the corners and added a coordinating embellishment and the card is done.

One year older card




Here's an easy peasy card I made using a paper from the Color Me Sampler Pack from Hot off the Press and an embellishment.

I used various colors of Dew Drop Brilliance Inks. They are pigment and sort of metallic looking so there is a sheen to it that the scanner doesn't really pick up.

After mounting that to a card base I added an embellishment to the corner and it's done.

Love card




Here's a card I made using a design from Design Junkies. For my card I used a stamp by Sugarloaf. I stamped the black with Versafine, a quick drying pigment ink. For the blue part I stamped with VersaMark and then used blue embossing powder. I'm using this as an anniversary card.

Happy Anniversary card






Here's a card I made using The Efficient Crafter blog post as an inspiration. I used watercolor paper that I precut to fit the card/envelope combo. I had purchased this set of 10 note cards with envelopes and the color coordinated to my scheme. I used watercolor crayons on Martha Stewart stamps. These stamps have a solid and an outline so I used the watercolor crayons on the solid portion. I used chalk inks for the outline portion of each stamp and then added a bit of background script on top. I inked the edge of the paper, stamped the sentiment using a stamp positioner and then added the ribbon and viola, the card is done.

Hair had always been important



Here's a card I made using a stamp from Artistic Outpost over an embossed quilted background. The quilt "thing" was from Technique Junkies. I remember the first hair dryer I used at home. It was one of those full bonnets with a hose to connect it to the base unit. It was terribly inefficient and seem to be designed for hair that was in curlers.

Wish Big card






Here's a card I made using a Hero Arts background stamp along with a sentiment from my Silhouette. I found an interesting pattern in one of my coloring books and used my Prismacolor markers in a green/brown palette. This is a birthday card for a guy, hope he likes it.
