Thank You Handmade Card Inkadinkado Patterned Bugs

I started working on this card last night and have changed my mind several times on how I wanted to create it, and this is still not right. I wanted to use the Inkadinkado Patterned Bugs clear stamps with this paper so I stamped right on the paper from K&Company called Purple Butterfly Glitter paper. This paper is so gorgeous. This picture doesn't do it justice. My picture seems a little light.. The Inkadinkado stamps called Patterned Bugs is so perfect for Spring. I have decorated the back of the card and also lined the envelope.

Thanks A Latte! Coffee Talk Handmade Card

I made this card today using Flair Designs scrapbooking paper called Coffee Talk. I think this paper is so cute! I have sewn on the front, back and inside of this card. I used the stamp "thanks a latte!" which I have inked, embossed and distressed on the cardstock. The phrase is placed on pop-ups, and the card has been embellished with ribbon and prima flowers. I have decorated the back of the card and lined the envelope. The inside of the card has been left blank but is distressed and a prima flower is on the right lower corner of the card.

Giraffe Longing Penny Black Handmade Card

Donating this Card to Make a Child Smile

I finished up my Christmas shopping today, and also visited our local Hobby Lobby store and bought for myself 4 copic markers. Oh WOW, how do I love them. Hope Santa comes my way this year!..... I used the copic markers on the above card and just fell in love with them. I can't wait to get more.

I wanted to make a card for a child tonight and was thinking about all the sick children around Christmas time. So I decided to make this card with the Penny Black giraffe stamp "Longing". The Giraffe put a smile on my face when I saw it and what a cute stamp. I thought the giraffe would brighten a child's day and put a smile on their face so I'm donating this card to Make a Child Smile at Please go visit their site, and donate a card for such a great cause. Please read the do's and don't of the wording on the cards.

I have used the copic markers, embossed and chalked on this card. I kinda got a little carried away with the chalk. ha ha. I chalked & embossed the word phrase "Hope you feel better today" then added some ribbon to the card.

Have a wonderful day tomorrow and thank you for viewing my cards.

Christmas German Star

This is a German Star that I made from a double sided piece of scrapbook paper. I have glittered the star and added a piece of ribbon to hang the star on our Christmas tree.

As a child, my Mother taught us how to make these stars. So tonight I decided to try and make one. Mom made her stars from constuction paper and glittered them all over. I should have used a brighter piece of paper. but it was fun designing this star.

Paper Bow Christmas Scrapbooking

This is a paper bow that I created tonight in a hurry just to see what it would look like. I saw a tutorial and just had to make one. I used Figgy Pudding paper that was double sided and added some ribbon. One sheet of 12"x 12" scrapbooking paper will create 2 bows. I need to improve on making the points of the bow more pointed, and precise but that will come with more practice. It was fun just to see what I could do!!!
