Celebrate Vellum Style

I made this card by stamping with white ink on white vellum. I added a red ribbon for accent. I like this card because it was easy to make and because I can use it for a lot of different occasions.

Winter Wishes

My papercraft magazine is already printing great ideas for Christmas. I think it put me in the Christmas mood so I decided to make a Christmas card. I got the stamp at Joanns and the paper is from the Joanns scrapbooking calendar. Enjoy!

Happy Frog Birthday

I had this cute frog paper and I really liked it but didn't know what to do with it. I decided to just add a cake embellishment and some ribbon and a Happy Birthday sentiment. I think it will make a great card for a little boy's birthday. Let me know what you think. I love comments.

Color Challenge

I belong to a group that has challenges and we share ideas and talk about cards and other paper crafting things. The most recent challenge I participated in was a color challenge. We had to use this Recession Penguin image and use colors from our favorite NFL team. I'm a PA girl so of course I choose the Eagles. I added the red ribbon for accent. It was a challenge because I didn't have the exact colors I needed for the Eagles and the image is Christmas themed but I think it turned out cute.

Fall Colors

I love fall. It is my favorite season for a couple of reasons. I love the smell of fall and the crisp cool air. I love the colors of the trees when the leaves change colors. I love all the vegetables, especially pumpkins. I also love the football games that go along with it.....Go Boilermakers! I didn't have anyone in mind while making this card. I just wanted to do something in fall colors. Enjoy

Happy Birthday

I got the idea for this card from Kim Burmeister. I follow her blog, she is a very talented paper crafter. I don't have any copic markers or one of those pens that makes colored pencil look like water color. All in good time.

I am addicted to cuttlebug embossing folders. I only have two but I have been learning some great things you can do with it on you tube. Yes I know it is really dorky to watch women make cards on You tube but it is fun and it is what I like. I hope you like this card. I added yellow cardstock to the background and organza ribbon.

Calvin and Hobbs

I got this image from the internet and then I distressed the edges. I love the look on their faces. If there were Calvin and Hobbs stamps I would buy them in a heartbeat. I added a bow for more accent but I think it is still a masculine card. I also inked the edges of the white cardstock on the inside. Let me know what you think!

Thank you

To make this paper background I stamped the black flowers. Then I drew on the center of the flowers with white crayen so it would resist the ink. I rubbed two in colors around and then wiped the ink off the center of the flowers.

Square card

I love making different sizes of cards. I especially love square cards. I think they look really nice. I didn't add a sentiment to this card because I loved the ribbon and wanted it to be the focal point.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! I love fall. I love the weather, the smells, the colors and the cute cards I get to make. I got these images and paper from a scrapbook calendar from Joanns fabric and craft.

I have two people in mind to get these cards. I love my sisters. All of them. I am lucky enough to have two big sisters and two little sisters. I get the best of both worlds. I only hope I can be as good of a big sisters as my big sisters have been to me.

Pull Tab

I used paper from a scrapbook calendar my mother in law, Patty got me for Christmas a couple years ago. I love the paper that came in it and most of them have matching embellishments. I ripped the edges to give it a rougher, country look and then I added some ribbon....I love ribbon.

I've really enjoyed using ribbon on my cards. I think it adds nice texture and also extra color. The only problem with using ribbon is there are too many to choose from in the store.
