Graduation Cards

These are the graduation cards I made this year, they are very similar to the ones I did last year but I really liked the owl with the cap and diploma so I went with it again. Every one has a different background because I just used what was already cut and laying on my table.


Birthday Cards

This a lovey birthday card I received in the mail from my friend Kathy.  She had a picture of it on her blog and I loved it so much I even commented on it, then a few days later it arrived in the mail.  How cool is that? If you want to see more of her wonderful cards hop on over to her blog at Kathy's Krafts.
This beautiful card was made by Evy.  Her friend takes amazing pictures and Evy makes them into fabulous cards.
How lucky am I to have these creative friends?

Yipee Skippee

As a Stampin' Up Demonstrator I get the privilege of placing a pre order of some of the Stampin' Up products along with receiving the new Stampin' Up catalogs before the general public.

Here is the cover of the new catalog.
This is new cardstock and designer paper called Cherry on Top.  Don't you just love it?  The designer paper comes in a 6 x6 pad.

I made a couple of cards using the stamp set Sprinkles of Life.  It comes with 22 photopolymer stamps and when you purchase it 3.00 is donated to  Ronald McDonald House Charities. And it just keeps getting better as there is a cute little punch that punches out the tree base, tree top/ ice cream/cupcake top, apple, bird and tiny flower.
I didn't order much as I'm still in the declutter mode, however I have a feeling after my second garage sale I will be in the mood to shop again.


Stampin' Up Event thank you cards

Now that I have delivered all the Stampin' Up orders I can post a pic the cards I made as a 'thank you for your order' gift.
 I used the berry basket die and embossed it using the wood embossing folder. Everyone is a little bit different.
Here is a close up view.
My new monitor arrived today so I'm up and running again without it being such a hassle to post pictures, so stay tuned.


Stampin' Up Event

I'm finally getting around to posting pics from my Stampin' Up event.
This card we did the wax paper resist technique. We scrunched up wax paper then unscrunch it a bit before ironing it on the paper.  The wax stays on and gives it a nice dimension after sponging over it with ink.

This one is my 3 minute or less card.  I try to do those for the people that you want to send them a handmade card but it will probably end up in the garbage.

This fun little number was made using the berry basket die.

This is the basket from the berry basket die and we made cute little flowers to decorate it.
