Here's an altered picture frame I made for the gift shop. The flowers are made from coffee filters If you enlarge the picture you can see the details better. I like the day this turned out. .

The Auxiliary always has a barbeque in June honoring the husbands and other gentlemen that help @ fundraisers etc. This is the invitation I made and sent to everyone.

Here's a get well card I made recently. Blue & white. I really like this die. I cuttled the background and ended up putting a blue rhinstone on the top of the umbrella.

This was my swap card for this month for one of the swaps I am in. Celery and pink. I like this bicycle stamp, love the tulips in the basket. I stamped the bicycle in Old Olive and then used a marker to color the frame pink. I liked the way the green and pink on the bike showed up.

This is the last of the black & white cards. I made this same card in black & red and also in navy and celery. It's clean & simple, just my style.

Shoe Box card

Here is a card that Pam designed for our shoe box. I messed it up totally so when I got home I redid it. I messed up stamping 2 of the flowers and yes, I turned it over and stamped again. What can I say, some days are like that! I substitued some flowers I had and this was the outcome. I had to change the saying also and I added the punched flower beside it.

Another black & white card

Here's another black & white card. I worked on this for awhile and I'm still not sure I like it. Denise made a vase out of a circle on her shoe box card this month. I thought it was a great idea. I thought the flowers looked bare so I made the vase, then I liked it a little better. I added the white on the left because I thought it looked lopsided, still did not like it until I added the bakers twine. Some days are like that right?

Another set of note cards for the gift shop

Here's another set of note cards that I did for the gift shop. I have a template that makes a "folder" sorta thing to put them in. I wish I could come up with a better way of packaging them. Any ideas?

Here's my second "horse" card. It is pretty simple. The horse stamp is by Inkadinkado. It is a clear stamp but it stamps really beautifully. The barbed wire stamp is from Deadbeat Designs.

Here's a thinking of you card I did for the gift shop. This is a Hero Arts cling stamp. I don't often use this corner punch but I really like it. I use to get maybe 3 corners right and mess up the last one. Not so any more as I turn the punch upside down so I can see just where to position the corner of the paper. I have an idea for another card using this punch so stay tuned!

The theme for shoe box last month was horses. This is one of the cards I made. I bought this stamp @ Hobby Lobby while we were in Indiana. The banners on the side are from My Favorite Things. I should have read the size before I ordered. I expected the dies to be bigger. They are a set of 3 mini banners. Duh! I should have realized how small they were. I like the way this turned out anyway. I think the dies will be great for my VA cards.

Here's a VA card I made for this month. The stamp set is a retired one from Stampin Up. The corner embelishment is from Stamp Antonio called Candi I think. It is a good embelishment to use on masculine cards. The vertical birthday stamp barely fits on the 4" layer but it does fit.

Here's a card I made using left over paper scraps. Julie designed this card layout & I really like it. It is really a good way to use up scraps of paper. Hope you like it.

I did this navyt & yellow card for a birthday. I think it is a really a nice color combination. I punched out the flowers and added them to the stamped image. I like the way this turned out.

I love this new stamp set from My Favorite Things. I used it as one of my swap cards for this month. The umbrella is a die cut. I made the mistake of punching out the pieces and then had to figure out where they went. The last one I put together is much better than the first.

Here's another set of note cards. White black & red are alwlays nice colors together. I made my "horse" cards for shoe box and the theme this month is black & white. I need to get started on them.

Here's a card I did for the Va. I bought this stamp in the $ bin at Michael's. This is the last of my Amuse paper. I love that paper. Did you know that Amuse is now set up like StampinUp. Their packaging etc. is just like StampinUp. I wonder what StampinUp thinks of that.

I am working on some note cards for the gift shop @ the Point. Here's one of them. The stamp is Hero Arts and yes, I have seen purple roses. Our friend gave us some one year on our anniversary.

I made this card for the Va guys. I love this Hero Arts background stamp called lattice. It is a simple design but very nice. Also stamps beautifully. I did not get it stamped on one edge so I used a piece of brown & embossed it. Covered it up nicely. Brown & mustard, not colors I use very often.

Friday, May 4, 2012

We are back and I have a ton of cards to do. I have been ask to make some note cards for the gift shop @ the Point. Here's one of the 12 cards I did for the VA guys
I am not sure I like this one but I had to get them done. I embossed with black powder. Humm, maybe I thought it was not masculine enough. Anyway, it is gone so I'll try harder next time.
