Card Bonanza

Even though I wasn’t posting to my blog, I was still doing a bit of crafting here and there. I went to a couple of crops and cards were the easiest project to work on. So, here is a card bonanza.

I tried to use some scraps and bits of vintage papers.

I got a new stamp set from Crafty Secrets, and it inspired this little dreamer card.

Here is the Mother’s Day card I made way back in May.

I made this card for Lily Munchkin’s dance recital.

Published Cards

I’m sharing a couple of the cards that I had published in January issues.

“Surprise!” was published in the January Cards magazine.

In the January Simply Handmade: Paper Crafting issue, I had two projects published – my Fairy Banner and this card that was shown in their crepe paper feature:

I love the muted colors of this card, and think I’ll make some more for wedding cards. I should have gotten on the ball and made some for Valentine’s Day. Oh well – there’s always next year.
I had a total of 10! projects that were published in the Create: Vintage issue. I’ll share those later this week.

Happy May Day

May already. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. I’ve already been working on Christmas cards! Here are a couple of other cards I’ve made recently.

I just love the new Graphic 45 Little Darlings collection. I made a baby card using layers of paper, lace, fabric, flowers, and a stamped carriage.

This card uses new Prima products – journaling card, patterned paper, flowers, even a piece of the packaging.

I stitched a border and added a collaged sentiment.

This month, I will be posting my 500th post!! Look for a giveaway to celebrate it soon…

A Few Cards

I made a few cards while I was watching my courtroom dramas the other night. I have some that are incomplete because I made a basic background and am waiting for an occasion to need the card and finish it. Here are a couple that are complete.

I used paper from DCWV’s Mariposa stack and another old pad of photo matt papers. This first card uses an image from The Graphics Fairy. I was testing out my new printer and loved how nicely it printed this image on cheap copy paper. I inked a paper doily and layered a piece of lace trim onto a paper scrap before adding the image with pop-dots.

This card uses more paper scraps, a Martha Stewart garden label, and other embellishments from my scrap pile. I added Stickles to the pink flowers to give them some sparkle.
