This card I made for a friend of mine who I have known since high school. We used to get in trouble together a lot! She has had a hard life but is finally getting it together and I am so proud of her. I will send it to her soon, but her birthday is just a couple of days away so I figured I will send the birthday card that I made for the TCPTUES17 challenge. Anyway, the details are as follows.

Stamps: Autumn Leaves

PP is Creative Memories

CS Bazill Yellow

Ink: Stamped the sentiment with Brown Adirondack, used Ranger Antique Linen, Weathered Wood and Vintage Photo (these I used to ink the edges of the card.

I punched out the flowers and colored them with copics and then inked those edges as well, the faux stitching was done using a copic marker. I used a pop dot between the flowers to add some dimension and added a MM brad. I think she will enjoy the card!

This card I had made for the TCPTUES16 Challenge, but I didn't link it right, the challenge was to make a card pulling an idea from this paper weather it was colors, shapes etc. I made this card when the girls had some friends over and they were playing cops. I used:
CS: Pink and a Purpley/Red, Brown Bazill
Stamps: Autumn Leaves flower which I cut out
Punch: Fleurs de Le, I ran a copic marker around the outside of them to give them a little punch , Accessories: MM Brads for flower centers, I colored them with a copic and ribbon I had laying around.

A couple of cards

Well I decided to start a blog just for my creations. I figured that some out there may not want to read about my personal life, as I have tried to be as honest and open on there. But you know some people may just want to see the cards that I have made, not read about all my drama (not that I have a lot, but you know what it is like when you are married and have kids, okay maybe some of you don't but some do).

Anyway I just got my first Stampin Up order last night! I of course immediately came home and mounted all my stamps and decided that I would use these stamps in The Cats Pajamas Challenge hosted by Katie so this is what I came up with.

The stamps are Loads of Love and the Loads of Love Accessories, I used Basic Black Ink to stamp the truck as well as More Mustard for the Hearts background. I used two MM brads as hubcaps and the Patterned paper is from a kit that I had gotten a couple of years ago, it never had the name of it on there, same goes for the orange paper and the little bit of ribbon. The pink paper is Bazill, I do know that! I colored the image with the above copics. I had stamped the image twice, and when I colored it initially it was a lot lighter, but when I colored the second one, it came out a lot darker, but I still like it.

The next card is one that I made for a friend who's mother died. I liked the card but before I got to send it out my kids got the back of it wet, so I had to "fix" it, I think I like how it came out better then the original.

The first card was the original, I went over to my SU demo's house and she let me use these the flower stamps, I don't remember from what set they are from, the I colored them with copics and used a Martha Stewart boarder punch (It's a good thing) LOL, and some MM brown ribbon. When it got wet, I cut the front off and placed it on some PP that I had from an old kit and then mounted all of that onto a piece of brown bazill CS. I have another card but it will have to wait for later as I have to get ready for work. Hope you like them!!
