Hey there! Happy Thanksgiving Friends!! I'm back. I actually made some of these cards earlier this month but I figured I'll share them with you. Someone mentioned that they like that I still create "layered" cards. Honestly, I don't like clean and simple cards. You have to be very talented to make something simple look . . .well, creative, if not, it just looks plain ole' simple. LOL! Besides, if I create simple cards what am I going to do with all the stuff I have? Sell them at prices that aren't even 25% of what I purchased them for? Nope. I'm not rich enough to literally give them away without feeling bad about it. In the meantime, I'll try to use up what I can until I feel comfortable enough to sell them at dirt cheap prices on Ebay. I have a rule for many of my rubber stamps. I have to at least use them at least 3 times before I consider selling them unless I really don't like them. But the ones I do like, I'll use them as many times until I get tired of them. It helps that I do sell my cards on Etsy because it forces me to use my stuff and continue creating.
Okay back to my cards. For the card above, I used my Unity Stamps. I've used this image several times in the past. I think this is the first time I inked it this year. I used Stampin Up designer paper which I have tons of. I recently bought the "chevron" design embossing folder which I used on my card. I love it!!
Not sure the brand of this image. I threw out the packaging and I can't remember who makes it. Anyway. . .not much to say about this card. Again SU designer paper and ribbon.
I love this snowlady! She's my favorite snowman stamp. I use her every year.
This snowman image is a Stampin Up image. I really love some of the older retired Stampin Up stamps. I don't think good images get old or outdated. Besides, the trend seem to recycle itself every few years. Clean and simple cards is an example Back in the day before designer papers were popular, people were making clean and simple cards. Also the old outdated designs for scrapbook paper are popular again. I have really old paper and they look similar to many of the newer paper designs.
This image is a digital image. I can't remember where I downloaded it from. I'm not very good at organizing my images. I don't care about brands so much so I don't keep track of who I bought the stamps or images from. I only care if the image looks good on my card.
Well I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
Until next time!!
