My nephew was on his baseball all-star team, so this was his b-day card. The colors are weird on this screen, but I think it's Wild Wasabi and Old Olive??? The baseball player is from SU! Alphabet stamps from Hobby Lobby, and the star is actually a clear sticker placed over cardstock and cut out. Square brads from Spare Parts.
Thanks for stopping by!
Here it is with all the cards and coordinating envelopes in view.
Here's the last card... the sentiment says "Birthday Wishes," if you can't read it. The silver gel pen used doesn't always photograph so well!
Most of the stamps used were SU!, with the exception of the silver flowers on the second card. I'm not sure where those came from. Colors are Blue Bayou and Soft Sky, as well as silver.
I sent this to my grandma... she LOVED it! She is so funny - she loves to brag about my stamping to her friends that stamp. It makes me feel good about my stamping, and of course, she always gets the extra cards that I make at stamping parties, etc., that I wouldn't normally send out! It's always nice when people appreciate your work!
This was another SIL's birthday card.
Cardstock: white from Walmart, SU! pp in Real Red (6x6 pack)
Ink:Basic Black, Red glitter gel pen, Silver gel pen, yellow gel pen
Other: Marvy oval punch, white ribbon from Walmart, Real Red heart eyelets from SU!, and silver paint pen
I doodled around the perimeter of the oval with a silver gel pen.
The color on this picture is weird, but you get the idea. I've been struggling with my "mojo" in stamping quite a bit lately, so when I saw this card kit on clearance at Hobby Lobby, I snatched it up! I added the Rose Romance (retired) heart eyelets and stamped a little on the inside. I don't remember who makes this kit, either, but I'll try to remember to edit it in when I get a chance.
This was made for a family member whose spouse was not able to be with them on their anniversary. I made 2 of the exact same card, only with the colors reversed. This polar bear and the sentiment below are also from Gina K designs, I think. The "Thinking of you" sentiment is SU!
Cardstock: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi (and of course, white from WALMART!), PP in the same colors from the 6x6" mat pack.
Ink: same as above
Other: Corner punch SU!, white heart eyelets from SU!, Heart shape stencil and free-hand cut
Thanks for visiting!
My SIL is Mexican, and is very proud of her culture. I made this card for her son. It's very bright and colorful... not my normal style, but I ended up liking it a lot. Every piece of cardstock in the bkgd is stamped with Versamark and a different pattern dealing with birthdays.
Cardstock: SU! Basic Black,Brilliant Blue, Cool Carribean, Garden Green, Only Orange, YoYo Yellow, Real Red
Inks: same as above, plus Basic Gray
Other: Deckle edge on my cutter, Silver gel pen
This was an anniversary card for my brother & SIL. I LOVE these giraffes! I think they are Gina K... I borrowed them from a friend, so I'm not sure. I just bent the front giraffe stamp over a bit when I stamped it (which took quite a bit of manipulating!) :-) I love how their spots look like hearts.
Cardstock; So Saffron, Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate PP
Ink: Sage Shadow, Close to Cocoa, Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi
The card shape was made with a stencil, and cut out by hand (no Nestibilities here!) :-)
The Wasabi layer is cut with my cutter with the deckle edge.
Thanks for stopping by!
This was my niece's birthday card... she turned 7 this summer.
Cardstock is SU! Pretty in Pink, and Certainly Celery and Retired slumber party PP.
Ink: Summer Sun, Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, Cool Carribean, and Certainly Celery.
Marvy Scalloped Square punch.
Cupcake is paper-pieced with different white cardstock that I just stamped different colors.
If you want any more info (like what stamp sets I used) just leave a comment. I'm posting these from my laptop while watching a ball game with my husband, so I don't know all the names of the stamp sets. :-)
Thanks for visiting!
Sorry, I couldn't get a nice clear picture of this one. This is an anniversary card. The Precious Moments stamp I've had FOREVER! The paisley stamp is SU! as is the sentiment. The sentiment is underneath a clear sticker. Cardstock is Buckaroo Blue from SU!, as is the ink. PM stamp colored in with markers.
So - here is a card that I made with the troops overseas in mind. I must admit that I was pretty impressed with my creativity on this one! If you look on your phone, the zip code spells "i luv u."
If you want details let me know...
Stamps: SU! By Ones & By Twos, Welcome, Little One, For a Friend, Sketch an Event, and unknown dot alphabet set
Cardstock/Ink/Markers: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa.
Patterned paper is from a pack that my SIL sent me.
PSX (A Baby is a blessing... sentiment)
Cardstock/Ink/Markers: White - Walmart, SU! Brilliant Blue, Summer Sun
Other: Hemp twine (Walmart), Scotch Tape Dimensionals, See-through star stickers and footprint, rattle and diaper pin stickers all from a package from my SIL
"you're absolutely fabulous"
"No, seriously - you are!
Birthday hugs and wishes"
I earned $35 free merchandise from the party, plus a hostess set, so I got a 6x6 paper pack for the hostess set (because I didn't really like any of the other stamp sets enough to get them!), and the Baroque Motifs stamp set, and Wild Wasabi ink, re-inker and paper. YEAH! I LOVE free stuff!
This is not a favorite of mine, but I'm guessing my BIL won't mind. I did NOT make this card at the stamping party. I got the colors from the strip of patterned paper on the side, then stamped the larger background paper. Here are the details:
Stamps: SU! Fly Fishing
Paper/Ink: (My white cardstock is always from Walmart) SU! Sage Shadow, Marigold Morning, Cranberry Crisp, Basic Brown; Patterned paper is from a stash that my SIL gave me and I don't know who makes it.
Other: Marvy Giga Oval punch
Stamps: SU! Baroque Motifs and Fancy Flexible Phrases (for the sentiment)
Cardstock/Inks: SU! Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink
Other: White ribbon from Walmart, pearl from a scrapbooking kit, heart page pebble (from I don't know where), Marvy Super Jumbo Scalloped Square punch, and I also used the deckle blade on my paper cutter.
Stamps: SU! Priceless
Other: Marvy Mega Scalloped Square punch, Crystal glitter from Mark Enterprises, and SU! Purely Pomegranate ribbon.
I think that's about it for the cards like this... I used all the stuff that I stamped! Hope you have a great day!
Stamps: Morning Glory by Stampendous, Morning Glories (border) by Hero Arts, sentiment ? - it's a foam stamp that someone gave to me.
Paper: White Cardstock from Walmart, SU! Slumber Party PP, SU! Regal Rose
Ink: SU! Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Green Galore, Gable Green.
Other: Marvy Giga Circle punch, oval page pebble (someone gave these to me, too, so I have no idea where they came from)
Attached to the box with hemp twine...
The inside of the card...
Other: Marvy Giga Oval and Circle punches, page pebble oval sticker, hemp twine from Walmart
The baby stamps are SU! Baby Firsts, and I'm not sure what the name of the wheel is, but I'm sure it's similar. The sentiment is PSX, and the "it's a girl" at the bottom of the sentiment is from SU! So Many Sayings.
I used white cardstock from Walmart, and the wheel ink color I think is Pink Passion. The other colors are SU! Lavendar Lace, Pixie Pink, and Gable Green. I colored and doodled with the markers in the same colors.
When I saw this Clickabella stamp and sentiment on someone else's blog, I just HAD to have it! I spend a lot of time keeping up with friends and family via e-mail, blogs, facebook, etc. I just think this stamp is ADORABLE!
This card was made for a Cupcake Friday challenge on Taylor's blog. Her sketch was of a 5"x5" card, but I did the normal size and then did the sketch on that. I paper pieced the cupcake, too.
Delight in Life Dutch card ~ My grandma is Dutch, and so my mom bought me the now retired SU! Netherlands set. I use it all the time for my grandma's cards, and she loves it!
OK - that's it for the past cards, except the ones that still remain on my camera! I'll get to those soon, but wanted to catch up first! :-) Hope you enjoyed my cards!
