I wanted to try something new and I needed a masculine birthday card and this card is a completely different style of card from what I normally create. I used my square nestabilities dies to cut various sizes of squares and just started laying them out on the card front until I was happy with the design and then I glued them all down.
Supplies Used: Stamps: Vintage Labels Paper: Whisper White, Sage Shadow, Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy Ink: Not Quite Navy Accessories: Square Nestabilities Dies, Tombow Adhesive
Time for a winter holiday card. Although I completed all my holiday cards and have them mailed I didn't get a chance to post all of my designs. This card was created for the October Christmas card challenge. October's challenge was to make a card for another winter holiday. Not everyone celebrates Christmas so this challenge was the perfect opportunity to make a winter card and what could be more about winter than a snowman.
Another birthday card for a co-worker. To keep the leaves and french text in a vertical line I used my stamp-a-ma-jig. I use the stamp-a-ma-jig on almost all of my cards and it is one of the most used tools other than my paper cutter.
Supplies Used: Stamps: French Foliage, Bring on the Cake Paper: Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss, Really Rust Ink: Really Rust, Mellow Moss Accessories: Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Very Vintage Button, Linen Thread, Extra Large Oval Punch, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals
I saw this card on Splitcoast and loved the vintage look of it. The only thing I changed was the sentiment since I needed another birthday card for a co-worker.
Supplies Used: Stamps: Bring on the Cake Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Everyday Enchantment DSP Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Very Vintage Buttons, Linen Thread, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals
This fancy cake was a birthday card for a co-worker. I make birthday cards for all of my co-workers and sometimes it isn't easy coming up with different ideas and designs. I am really making an effort to use my supplies and not purchase new things other than whisper white and very vanilla card stock and embellishments. I'm hoping to put together some greeting card sets in the new year that hopefully will use up a good portion of my older card stock and designer series paper.
Supplies Used: Stamps: Embellished Events Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Green Galore, Making Memories My Kids Collection Katie DSP Ink: Pretty in Pink, Green Galore Accessories: Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities Dies, Bitty Banner Framelits, Boho Blossoms Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Dots Embossing Folder, Rhinestones, Dimensionals
I finally have all my Christmas cards completed and mailed so I'm back to my normal posts and since it's Monday we have a masculine card. The most time consuming part of this card was stitching the leaves.
