More Cards!

Hey Friends! How many of you have a lot of scrapbook papers?  I have a million of them and I noticed the trend in card making nowadays are using less designer papers and less bows.  Well, I have too many designer papers and ribbons to go along with the trend of not using them.  I have enough of them to stock a store.  So. . ..I guess I have to continue using them . . .I have a lifetime worth of them.  LOL!  Besides I like the look of the designer papers.  It adds color and pretty design to a card.

I'm not sure the brand of rubber stamps I used for this card.  Believe it or not but I still have tons of retired Stampin Up retired designer papers.  I'm trying to use them up slowly but it'll be a while before I do.

The rubber stamped image is by Flourishes.  The designer paper is by Stampin Up

Just a simple boy Birthday card.  The rubber stamped image is by Close to My Heart.  I rarely make boy or masculine cards because it's hard for me not to use ribbons, bows, and embellishments.

Can't remember what brand rubber stamp I used for this card. 

I heat embossed the owl image with black embossing powder.

This is a no stamping card.  I actually printed the sentiment from my computer.

I used a retired Stampin Up set for this card.  I heated embossed the flowers and added iridescent paint to add the dots in the center of the flowers.

That's it for today.  I'm thinking maybe I'll start blogging regularly again.  I sometimes miss blogging.  It's something I'll think about.  Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hello! Just a bunch of cards I made. . .

Hey Friends!  Gosh it's been a while since I posted on here!  Life is good. . .and I've been making cards on a regular basis to sell in my Etsy shop.  I haven't been blogging regularly because well, life has taken over. . . it's been January since I last posted,  I often wonder if the people that were regular bloggers when blogging first got popular are still blogging.  I haven't had the time to check out other bloggers.  I now primarily make cards to sell rather than to share on my blog. 

What's new in life?  Hmmmm. . ..well my daughter graduated from college last year and is now working in the biological/biochemistry field.  With the job market the way it is, I'm glad she landed a good job in her desired field.  Many of her college classmates are still looking for jobs or are working in areas that are not related to their field of study so therefore, I am grateful that she was given a chance.  

Other than that. . .not much else has changed.  Just living life.  Anyway, on to discussing my cards!

 I've been going through my rubber stamps and designer papers, scraps, embellishment and been using many that I haven't touched in years.  With my rubber stamps, I create a card then I put the stamp into a container to remind me that I've used them already.  I have a lot of rubber stamps that I haven't used since buying them so I'm trying to go through the ones I like and use them and set aside the ones I'm no longer interested in and make plans to sell them.

With this card I used my Unity Stamps which I have a ton of . . .and haven't used ever.

I used a Close to My Heart rubber stamp with this one.  I stamped the image on designer paper and cut the flower out.  I added a Prima flower to enhance the design.

I can't remember the brand of rubber stamp I used for this card. 

I have quite a few Magnolia stamps that I really don't use much anymore.  I decided to use one on this card.

I also have a lot of Close to My Heart rubber stamps that I don't use often either.  I was once a demonstrator back in the day so I have a lot of them.   I decided to use it on this card.

This image is by Flourishes.  I don't have many Flourish stamps but the ones I do have I like.  Another thing I've been doing is using my scrap designer papers.  I cut them in pieces that fit my card size so I can easily use them on my card without have to cut them.  It took a few days to cut the scraps into their appropriate sizes but it was well worth it.  I also did the same thing with my scrap card stock. By doing this, I now more likely to use the designer papers and card stock to decorate my cards rather than cutting new card stock or designer papers.

This image is by the Greeting Farm.  I still love all my TGF rubber stamps and use them regularly.  It was a good investment as far as rubber stamps go anyway.

Anyway, that's it for now.  I have a lot more cards that I made and I'll share them next time, hopefully sooner than later.  If you don't make cards but would like to buy them from me, click on the Etsy link below and check out my shop regularly to see what I've listed.

Hope you all have a wonderful week and see you again next time!

Valentine's Day cards and Birthday Cards, Etc. . .

Hi Friends!  Happy New Year!  It's been a while since I last blogged.  How was your holidays? Although I haven't been posting any cards for the past month, I've been making cards regularly.  I've been concentrating on Birthdays, Thank You and Valentine's card.

 I went through a few storage containers and pulled out some rubber stamps that I haven't worked with in a while.  I have a bunch of really cute House Mouse, Penny Black and Whipper Snapper stamps so I decided to work on cards using those stamps!  With this card, I used a Whipper Snapper image.

This one is a Penny Black image.

I also have a bunch of Close to My Heart stamp sets.  I was once a CTMH demonstrator so I have a ton of CTMH stamps sets and many of which I have not used at all.  With this card, although you can't really see it in the photo, I heat embossed the image on to red card stock using black embossing powder.  In person, it has a raised appearance to it.

I did the same thing with the heart image on this card but this time used white embossing powder.

This image is another Close to My Heart image and again heat embossed with black embossing powder.

With this card, I used a Stampin Up image.  The unique thing about this card is that I used a scrap fabric to create the bow and the strip across the card.  No point wasting a nice piece of scrap fabric, right?

Anyway, I do have a lot more cards to share but I'll share them next time!  Hope you are all doing well!

Lots and Lots of Christmas Cards

Hi Friends!  You must be thinking. . ."wow, girl you've been busy" considering all the cards I've posted the last few days.  Actually, I have.   I think this is the most cards I've worked on in the past year.  I do still make cards but sporadically depending on my mood.  I'll go for weeks not making any card then all of a sudden make 5 cards in a day.  Creating should be about being care free  . .creating because you want to and not because you have to.  When you have to make them, it becomes burdensome and it starts to show with the end results.  I can tell the difference in my cards by just looking at them, whether I enjoyed making them or because I just had to make for one reason or another.

Anyway, I just wanted to share a few cards that I made the last few days.  This card was made using an old Stampin Up stamp.  All the papers on most of the cards I'm sharing are Stampin Up designer papers and the ribbons are also Stampin Up.

This card was made using The Greeting Farm rubber stamp

This card was made using Whiff of Joy stamp

This card was made using Pink Cat Studio

This image is by Pink Cat Studio

Again Pink Cat Studio

 This image is by Whiff of Joy

 Finally, again this image is by Pink Cat Studio

I made a few more cards but I haven't had a chance to take photos of them.  I'll share them maybe tomorrow.  Okay, that's it for today.

More Christmas Cards

Hi Friends!  It's me again.  I just wanted to share a bunch of Christmas cards I made in the last month.  I've made quite a few actually.  I made a bunch yesterday but I'll share them another time.  I decided to skip Thanksgiving this year.  I'm a bit behind this year so I don't have time to work on Thanksgiving cards.

 I used an old Stampin Up image for this card.  It still is one of my favorite.  The card above is also an image by Stampin Up.  Most of the designer papers on my cards are Stampin Up as well..

 I used a Magnolia stamp for this card.

I only have 2 Precious Moments rubber stamp. . .one is thankfully a Christmas image.

I think this is a Whiff of Joy image but I'm ot positive.

I love House Mouse images. . .they are so cute.

This is a Stampin Up image as well.

Anyway. . .that's it for today.  I'll share more tomorrow if I have the time to post. . .:)
Thank you for visiting my blog. .

Christmas Cards

Hello Friends!  Gosh, it's been since I last posted anything.  But I've been busy making Christmas cards.  I've also been busy doing other things in life.  Mainly going on out on little adventures. . .just a bunch of fun stuff. Maybe I should post my little adventures that I go on from time to time but I've been too lazy to blog it.  I primarily post pictures on Instagram or on my Facebook.  It's much easier and faster to post them on there but maybe from time to time I'll share them on my blog.

 Anyway. . .here are a few of the Christmas cards I've made in the past few weeks.  I actually made a lot more but I'll share them next time.

 I don't have much to write about. . .other than share the cards I made.
Hope y'all are having a great week!!
