WOW!! Where has the time gone?

I can't believe that my last blog post was December 2014!  Time truly does fly by.  Believe me when I say I haven't given up card making and I have many photos to prove that.  Blogging really took a backseat for me this past year but I am now ready to get back to it.  Hopefully my posts will be quite regular and I am eager to get back to it.  Be sure to come back tomorrow for the 1st card posted in 2016!

Graphic Squares


I wanted to try something new and I needed a masculine birthday card and this card is a completely different style of card from what I normally create.  I used my square nestabilities dies to cut various sizes of squares and just started laying them out on the card front until I was happy with the design and then I glued them all down.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Vintage Labels
Paper:  Whisper White, Sage Shadow, Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy
Ink:  Not Quite Navy
Accessories:  Square Nestabilities Dies, Tombow Adhesive

Happy Freezin' Season!


Time for a winter holiday card.  Although I completed all my holiday cards and have them mailed I didn't get a chance to post all of my designs.  This card was created for the October Christmas card challenge.  October's challenge was to make a card for another winter holiday.  Not everyone celebrates Christmas so this challenge was the perfect opportunity to make a winter card and what could be more about winter than a snowman.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Snowman - Inkadinkadoo, Sentiment - Darcie's
Paper:  Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Real Red, Chocolate Chip
Ink:  Black, Baja Breeze, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories:  Snowflakes Embossing Folder, Scallop Border Punch, Rounded Tab Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button Brad, Frost White Shimmer Mist, Dimensionals

French Foliage Leaf Cluster


Another birthday card for a co-worker.  To keep the leaves and french text in a vertical line I used my stamp-a-ma-jig.  I use the stamp-a-ma-jig on almost all of my cards and it is one of the most used tools other than my paper cutter.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  French Foliage, Bring on the Cake
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss, Really Rust
Ink:  Really Rust, Mellow Moss
Accessories:  Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Very Vintage Button, Linen Thread, Extra Large Oval Punch, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals
