Here is another card I made using the Kensington Branch.  I liked the negative when I used it for my card I posted on Friday.  Not sure about the colors but hey, if McDonald's can do so can I!

Here's a new die that I played with to make a couple of birthday cards for Aux. members.  It is a memory Box die called Kennsington  Branch.    I ran it through the bug but did not use the whole thing on the front.  I added the rest to the inside.  Lots of possibilities with this  die I think.

I made this sympathy card for shoe box this month.  Turns out I need to send it.  I really like this stamp and have used it a lot.

This is my swap card for this month.  The picture looks pink but it is really Crisp Cantelope.  I saw something similar on Pinterest.  I added the ribbons because I wanted to cover up a line that I made when I ran the piece through the bug.

I made this birthday card for my friend R.osanne.  I like the color combo.

This was my shoe box card this month.  I had trouble with it.  I have had this background stamp by Hero Arts forever!  I tried embossing it and it did not show up, then I tried embossing in black and it did not show up either.  The HA flower is colored with some Martha markers
 that I discovered when I moved stuff to the new room.

While cleaning out my stuff, I found these flowers.  I remember buying them but have not used many of them.  This card came together very easily and quickly.  It's for Becky, a fellow blogger that I follow.  She has had some major health issues when she traveled to Ca. for  a wedding.  How awful for this to happen, let alone when you are out of your area, seeing stranger doctors and hospitals.

This is the last of the large blank note cards that I made.  Pretty simple card.

Here's another blank note card I made.  I don't think I have ever used this embossing folder.  It came with an Anna Griffin large folder.  Pretty simple.  Today is shoe box. I have my card done and am looking forward to seeing the girls. I wish my desk top would come.  I still need to go through some iris carts and  purge some stuff.  We are getting some rain this morning.  Love it!!

This card is ivory and black.  The die is Det
ailed Scallop.  To cut it I use 2  layers of waxed paper and run it through several times.  It works best if it is run through the machine cut side up.

*I made this card for Denise for her birthday.  I saw the technique on Pinterest.  First I stamped  the image in Crumb Cake, then I inked the image in Versamark and moved the stamp over just a little and stamped then embossed with white powder. Love the saying and the font.

8:30 this morning.  Look what Joe found by the tomato plant in the back yard this morning.  In our fenced in back yard.  How do you think that happened??
I made this birthday card for a woman in the Auxiliary.  Pistachio Pudding and Rose Red.  The rose is by Stampendous.  I got all my craft stuff moved in to my room on Wed. with room to spare.  I need to organize it a little  more but it is there.  You should see the garage.  Joe came in after spending an hour or so out there and said "I have taken back the garage".  Super clean and organized.  Have a happy day!

Here is another anniversary card I mad for Pam & Mike.

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

I made this anniversary card for my friend Sharon using my new favorite brown, Early Expresso .  Pretty simple card.  I really like the feather.  I am starting to bring in the craft stuff that was in the garage.  I know once I get it all in I will be moving stuff around once again but having it all in one place is going to be great!  Shoe box is here Sat.  I was hoping to have my stuff all in, organized etc. I am still waiting on the desk top.  I'll post some pictures soon.

Here's another A7 card.  This one is Almost Artichoke.  I like the way this turned out.  Another Dead Beat Design stamp.

Monday, June 9, 2014

I got some stamping done yesterday and I had a request for some A7 (I think) cards. 4 1/2x6 . blank cards.  Here's one I made, red. white and blue.  Th stamps are Deadbeat Designs.  I did a little more organizing yesterday & now I need to start on the cabinets in the garage.  I sure am loving this room.  Opening the closet and seeing my stuff organized is pure joy!

Here is another Aux. birthday card  using Vellum.  I made this design several years ago and bring it back from time to time. I changed this one up a bit.  I cut the front off about 3/4 up then put the vellum all the way  up to hide the adhesive.  This time I added the punched border and ended up backing the vellum.  So I wasted a little card stock but I liked the results better.

I had to get a couple of birthday cards out ASAP for early June birthdays.  Here's on for Debbie.  What's with the wrinkle?? I was able to taker my stylus and smooth that out.  The paper is from Hobby Lobby.  I went "Junkin" two days in a row.  Marilyn & I went to Boerne on Tues.  Then we met friends in Llano Tues. night.  Joe & Mike played golf yesterday and Janet & I went to some really good stores.   I found a couple of things to make for the gift shop.  Llano is a neat little town that we have driven through any times.  It's fun to go with someone who is familiar with the town.

I made this card for a friend who is having some serious medical problems.  While going through my stuff I found this stamp that I have not used in a long time..  Pretty good thought I think!

On Thursday I posted the Just Because card.  I thought it was too dull and drab so I used a Tim Holtz stickles and outline the frame.  No one of my better creations but this is a little better. .Maybe I should do the Just Because in black. or toss it out!  I have moved everything in except for my wood mounts that are in plastic cases.  Joe needs to finish a  couple of shelves and hang the rod that I will put my punches on.  I was able to clean up and do some stamping yesterday.  I love my space and everything has a home.  Now if I can just remember where that home is!
