Cards I made so far during our Colorado Trip.


Hi Everyone. . .I'm still on my trip. Right now, we're staying over-night in Alamosa. We visited the Great Sand Dunes today, which happen to be located in Alamosa. I'll post pictures of the Great Sand Dune on Card Inspired tomorrow.

During my down time usually at 10:00 at night, I've been making a bunch of cards. I've made more cards on this trip than I've had for a long time. On average, at home I make one or two cards and sometimes skip a day or two at a time without making any card.

I made a total of 4 cards tonight and two cards the other night. The other cards are posted on Card Inspired.

I also post all of the pictures of our trip on Card Inspired because it's easier to post the pictures on just one blog site. Be sure to check out the pictures I've taken of beautiful Colorado and the many great experiences we've had so far. I've posted a lot of pictures starting on July 29. Tell me what you think of Colorado based on the pictures. I think after you see the pictures, you'll want to visit Colorado on your next trip. It is worth it, in my opinion.


This was a fast and easy card to make because the images are all pre-cut and pre-colored. Interestingly, the flower image was colored on the airplane on our trip to Washington DC in April and here I am now using it on our trip to Colorado.



The faux metal tag was created using foil. If you check my sidebar to the left under 'tutorials", there's a link to the tutorial on how to create the tag.



All of the images on this card were all pre-colored and pre-cut before our trip and it sure came in handy. They were sort of just sitting in a drawer waiting to be used. I think if it wasn't for this trip, I probably would not have used them because I would have forgotten about them.

Anyway. . .until tomorrow! Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!

Goodnight. . .

Wow, I really like your cards, Maria. Hmm, were these images precoloured as well? I remember you saying you had a bunch. My girlfriend & I are driving over to Michigan today to attend a rubber stamp exhibition.

I have trouble enough creating when I am here in my craft room, surrounded by my papers, tools and supplies...never mind trying to be creative away from home on a trip. You go girl!

Great Cards - I am inspired to see that cards can be created away from home!
On another note - glad you enjoyed your Colorado trip. I am a native Coloradan and my husband is from the Alamosa area. We attended college in Alamosa. We go to Alamosa quite often from Denver.
