V-day card #3!

I think this is my best project so far...I got the idea for this Joy Fold Card from a tutorial video on I've gotten so much inspiration from them!

I made the card while I was hanging out with Alex and Ruthie during their Popcorn, PJ's and Projects U-Stream- I credit their enthusiasm and laughter with my wonderful results!

I used my Martha Stewart edge punch (I love it so!) on just a little strip of gray textured cardstock, then inked it all over with a silver pigment ink, so that it just kinda sparkles all over! All of the images are stamps from Studio G that I get in the dollar bins at Craft Warehouse; I just cut them out and put them on pop dots. The twine is just cording I picked up in the jewelery section at Michaels. The pink cardstock is a non-textured pearl/metallic paper, and on the inside the white cardstock is textured and pearlized. All of the paper I got from Michaels or JoAnns.

I hope you like it as much as I do!


V-Day Card the Second!

I made this card because I had an idea to do a card with a kitten and I wanted to make my first Easel card, so I whipped this up!

I used Create-a-Critter for the kitten (at 3") and the pillow (which I think I cut at 1 1/2") and the phrase on the front of the card (purrfect), and Plantain Schoolbook for the inside sentiment ("for me"). I glittered up the whiskers and around each of the letters, and over the pillow with my Sakura Stardust pen. For the inside, I used a Cuddlebug edge folder and then cut around it to make it a border that holds the card open!

Easel cards are so fun- I'm gunna be making a lot more of 'em!


Valentines Day Card #1

This is the first Valentine's day card I made this year. I made it for a challenge for Stamp Club at Craft Warehouse, and I love the way it turned out! We were given the Stamp stickers, the Brown card, and the hearts.

I used a twinkle brad to attach the hearts, and a Martha Stewart edge punch for the bottom border, and inked the crap out of everything! Quite satisfied with this!


Cheeseheads Rule!

I'm just trying to update my blog! I made this project a few weeks ago, while the Pack was still in the Semi-Finals. My old roommie was born and raised in Wisconson, and these are my first Peachy Keen stamps (I won them in the winter release blog hop!), so it just seemed like a great match!

I had a lot of fun playing around with my Bic Mark It Markers to color the snowmen! This is one of the first projects I've made with them, and I'm happy with the way it turned out!

I hope you like this!
