Over the hill card


Here's a card I made for a family member using stamps and a folded technique from Repeat Impressions. I was in a bind for a guy card then I remembered I had some of these cards sort of ready but not assembled.

The base of the card was made with dual color double sided plain paper. I covered one side with washi tape that gave it a patterned look. Here's what the card looks like when it is "closed".


When you open the card here's the other side.

Elvis Birthday Cards




Here's a set of four cards I made using Elvis stamps by Stampsmith and paper from EK Success. I cut them with my Silhouette so no fussy cutting was required. It doesn't look as such in the photo but each Elvis is sort of elevated with a homemade accordion "thingy". I was hoping it would make it look as though Elvis was swinging his hips. 

Each one has different embellishments. the upper left has some stickers, the upper right has some stars that were cut out with a circle punch and elevated with pop dots. The bottom left has the same circles but I also added a bit of instruments on a music scale (at least I think that's what they call it). The lower right has some musical notes I cut out with a punch.

All cards are for guys who are also kings (get the pun!), hope they like them.

Four sentiment card





I made this card at a make and take at a scrap/card show a few years ago but never sent it. I decided to add some sentiments from Hero Arts and turn it into a birthday card. It uses Just For Fun stamps. I like the outline stamp. It is sort of a faux postage look.

Hold You Dear Card






Quite a few years ago I took a class at a stamp/scrap show and made a card using an Art Gone Wild stamp. I thought I had a template for the card but I couldn't find it. I recreated one using my Silhouette but changed the size to fit an A2 envelope. In doing so I needed to rearrange the items. I've since adjusted my design to make the circles closer together so the candy pieces can fit on the top and bottom of the circles. This card is for a little girl, hope she likes it.

Hello Friend card




Here's a card I made in a class at a scrapbook/paper show a few years back. If I remember correctly, it uses products from Technique Tuesday. If a reader knows otherwise let me know. I'm sending to a...yes friend, thus the sentiment.

Whatever card





Here's a card I made for birthday of a young man. A long time I made a 12x12 using some Ranger techniques and then did nothing with it. After a while I cut it up and made some cards with it. This is one of them. I used a Hero Arts clock stamp on top of the other stuff and cut the piece into four irregular rectangles. To finish the card I found this rub on that seemed to go with a birthday.

3 ladies card




Here's the card I sent for Mother's Day a few weeks ago. I set up my posts in advance and didn't feel like juggling them all around. I had this background sitting around. It was actually a tag that I cut to fit the card. It already had this design that I think was stamped on it but I sure can't remember. I added the three ladies and transformed it into a Mother's Day card.

Special Day Card



Here's one of four cards I made using a really easy technique from Club Scrap. I used an oversized stamp from Impression Obsession on four different slightly patterned paper scraps. I used a sentiment stamp from See Dee's and the card is done. Two of the other three are the same awaiting their sentiment. The third is just on a white cardstock background and I think that looks OK too.

Class of 2016 card





Here's a pretty simple card I made a free cut file from Clever Some Day. This gal has some great files, and informative videos for cutting machines. In a time when many kids take forever to graduate if at all from college hubby's niece did it in three years. Quite an accomplishment. She'll be on to grad school in the fall so we wish her all the luck in the world. I picked the colors for this card based on her school colors.

Yellow bird card




Here's a card I made using supplies from SEI. I'm sending it as an anniversary card. The flower is quite thick so extra postage will be required. Keep that in mind when sending cards. Also a square shape requires extra postage.
