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!!
