This is a fun card I made for my girlfriend's birthday. I used the Hero Arts cupcake stamps. They are just so cute! I stamped them out on Basic Grey "Two Scoops" papers and pieced them together. I added a little glitter with my Spica pens. All of the background paper is Two Scoops also. We are taking her out for Mexican tonight. She's a big scrapbooker so all of her gifts will be things she can use!

Sunny butterfly

This is a fun summer card I made. The images are Inkadinkadoo (I seem to have a thing for this company). I use three stamps for this card. All of the images were stamped on white cardstock and colored with Tombow markers, then highlighted with Spica pens. I was going to leave the background white but it just needed something. The yellow did the trick. The background paper is from KI Memories ("Just Sew" - Fire). It is hard to see, but I mounted the butterfly image on foam tape and cut the wings so I could give them a 3d effect. This small picture seems blurry, but if you click on it you can see a better picture. I have been sick with a UTI this weekend and other than going to the doctor yesterday, I have done nothing. I have never had one of these before and it is not fun! I had to have another procedure done last week and that is what caused this infection. I am going to try to do a few things today. (Like get dressed! Ha, Ha!) Have a great day and keep looking up!

Go For A Ride

I've had a bit of a creative block lately, but I think I may be over the hump! I was able to create two cards that I was happy with today. This one is a Great Impressions stamp colored with Prismacolors. The pink paper is Basic Frey (Sultry - Fandango). The decorative paper is beautiful (Urban Rhapsody Garden Collage by K&Company). It has a lot of texture and sparkle. Flowers are Prima with crystals in the center. The twill ribbon is from Creative Cafe. I used my new Nestibilities for the ovals. I'm having fun with those! I'll show you the other card tomorrow. Have a great weekend and keep looking up!

I made this card as a small "door prize" for a group of ladies that gets together at least once a month. We call ourselves the "39rs" because we are always celebrating the anniversaries of our 39th birthdays. We all used to go with our families to the beach every spring break -- 5 to 6 families and all of our children. The age ranges were close so everyone had someone to hang out with. It was so much fun. Well, the kids have all gotten older and we are starting to have weddings, births, and even a death. We're still there for each other to laugh and cry, to support each other through all of life's stages. This picture doesn't do the card justice. I was in a hurry to take it and go. The stamps are a clear set from Inkadinkadoo. Paper is Basic Grey -- Two
Scoops. The fibers are also Basic Grey. I've used this layout before, it's one of my favorites. Doesn't the beach seem like a wonderful place to be?

Summer Butterflies

This is not my usual color scheme. But, I loved this paper and wanted to do something with it. It does remind me of a picnic or a bandana. The sentiment is Hero Arts.

This is a card I made "just because". I love this color combination and the decorative paper. The image is from a new Inkadinkadoo clear set I just got. It just looks like summer to me.
