Get Well again

Here's a cherry card I made for the gift shop. Rose Red with Designer Paper and that cute little flower stamp from Hero Arts. I hand drew GASP! the curvy line and cut it out then placed the flowers on the curve. I like it! Gasp you say, well all of you know my drawing skills are non existant & you can't really see the curve in the picture but it is there.

Another Get Well Card

Wow, I had a productive weekend. I learned to wire wrap beads on a wine glass stem (thanks Patti)! I made some more get well cards for the gift shop and a cople of other things which I will show you this week. here's the get well card. The Almost Amethist is discontinued and the flowers are from Vintage Vogue, all from StampinUp. The background stamp is from A Stamp In The hand stamped with crumb cake ink. I don't know if A Stamp In The Hand is still in business but like the stamp. The Get Well Soon is one I bought @ the last convention I attended. It is Repeat Impressions.

The Big Fix

Here's a card Marilyn designed for shoe box. I totally messed it up. I liked the technique and will try it again sometime but I had to fix this card. See that the saying is crooked and the big ink blob at the bottom. Here's the ugly mess
I thought the stamp was too far down on the card so I carefully removed it, cut some off the top and added the black card stock that I ran through my crimper and then mounted the saying again. At least I can now use this card and I am happy that I could salvage it.

Another VA card

I made this card as one of my VA birthday cards. Very simple design. The hard part was choosing the paper. As you all know, I'm out of my confort zone when putting patterned papers together.

Swap Card

Here's a swap card I made this month. Cherry Cobbler and white. I like the layout a lot. The saying & stamp is from Hero Arts. The stamp set retired but I read some place that Tim Holtz talked them into bringing it back. It stamps beautifully. There are 4 flowers in the set but this one I seem to use more.

Here's my third card that I made for Rosanne. I don't like it as well as the first two. The black paper is from Mike's but they don't have it any longer. It is very textured but does not show up in the photo.

My friend Rosanne had a birthday last Friday. I decided that I would give her something every day for that week. I made a pineapple meringue pie for Joe for Fathers day. It is yummy, starting with a Pecan Sandie cookie crust. Well, Monday morning I took her a piece of pie. Tues. was hand made lotion that is really good, Wed. I took her lunch, Thurs. I bought her flowers and Fri. I made her a set of note cards. I really had fun doing that. I gave her 6 cards with three different designs. The colors are white Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler. Colors I really like together. Here's one of them.

Here's a card I made for Denise. If therpy could be eliminated all together the world would be a better place but sadly there would be a lot of people hobbling around! I hope this card put a smile on her face.The stamp is by DeNami & the banner die is from My Favorite Things. Again, duh, I expected them to be bigger. I will read more carefully when I order on line. I love the saying, also DeNami.
