Happy Birthday Miles.

I love this card, I definitely wanted to make a music themed card for my brother in laws birthday. Little snippets of ideas formed in my head over a week long period till I decided my plan of action.

I don’t have any DP that is a music sheet so I decided to make my own. I printed off a music sheet of Happy Birthday for piano? I could not find one with lyrics attached. I wanted the paper to look aged so I soaked the whole thing in tea, the first time I did that I only soaked it for a short period as I did not want the paper to fall apart. I used my embossing heat tool to dry it to give it a roughed up look. I did not think it was dark enough so the second time around I used a wet tea bag (Thank you Celestial Seasonings Tea – Morning Thunder) and ran it randomly over the paper, this time after it dried it worked perfect. I then sponged the edges with a few shades brown ink to give it a more aged look.

I did not want to take away from my proudly created DP so I left the adornments down to a simple ribbon with a gold filament in it. I had such fun making this card.

Have a Fabulous Birthday Miles!!

Supplies: Cream, tan and brown cardstock, misc free music sheet, Celestial Seasonings Morning Tunder tea bag, Microsoft Office -Music note clipart, misc ribbon

This is another card from my last Stampin' Up! gtathering, the technique was using versamark and chalk to make the image different colors. Apparently I am not so good at that. I also am not qualified to cut anything out free hand, even more so when I don't have my own tools.

Halloween tomorrow:) Pancake breakfast at work today... Jeans Day... TGIF.

This is just a small little note card, 2.5 by 2.5, I think. It is a sympathy card for a co-worker of my husbands who lost her cat. I know it is almost a repeat of the card my made for Caesar but it works. The picture does not do it justice though, it turned out great. Apparently it matches her office.

Supplies: Cream, burgundy and tan cardstoc, Designer Paper-My Mind's Eye, Pink Cat Studios- cat paw, Celebrate It - Holiday ribbon.

I attended a Stampin' Up! gathering last weekend and we made Christmas cards. I think this idea is so cool. We used two tag punches to make the thin outlines of paper then glued and cut to make this pointsetta. I screwed up so I had to add the two little snowflake parts on the end of the ribbon but I still like this card.

I was going through the folders on my computer to clean up my temp directory for my posts and realized I had not posted this card that I made sometime this summer. I don't have any sports related stamps so I borrowed from Microsoft Office clipart. While I was at it I also found a font to match (Happy Birthday) and printed them at the same time.

Have a wonderful day,

Supplies:Cream and blue cardstock, designer paper- Memory Skor, 7 Gypsies – Assorted Buckles, Scenic Route twill ribbon, Happy Birthday and cyclist image Microsoft Word, misc black brads

More Halloween, this image does not show that I used my Spica glitter markers to color the Plaque it is very glittery and makes a difference for the card, I find coloring is always fun. I still have a couple more to show and will mix them in with other cards as the week progresses. Some are similar with just some color changes.

Supplies: Cream, green, orange and black cardstock, Designer paper- Recollections Halloween, Stampendous-Pumpkin Plaque, Recollections-Pearl Stickers, misc Halloween ribbon.

I though I had already posted this card, I have a half a dozen waiting in the wings to be posted. I save them though in case I don't get too many cards made. How bad is that. I have not even had the chance to blog hop and share comments for about 2 months... Way too long. Anyhooo this card was made for my brother and his wife for their anniversary. Simple and I was happy with it.

Have a good start to your week.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer paper-Unknown, Inkadinkado-The great Outdoors, misc shimmer ribbon, Dress it Up – Folk Art Hearts,

I love the Dazzles from Hot off the Press available at PaperWishes. This image does not show the rich and shiny colour of these stickers and they are so easy to work with. This card was just screaming at me to make it so I did for my sister Barb. What I really wanted to do was show off my new crafting treasures. The wonderful Dazzles, the beautiful stitched brad, my new fall designer papers that I could not resist, then of course the fun mesh ribbon that worked perfect to pull the card together.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer paper-My Mind’s Eye, Hot of the Press-Autumn Stickers Dazzles, K&Company-Ancestry stitched brad, Kiaser- Rhinestone, misc brown mess,

It is Thursday already... Today the card is one of the 5 or 6 Halloween cards I made this past weekend.

It was raining and dark yesterday when I set up the light tent, I have been lucky the last couple of months where the natural light has been enough. I guess it is time to bring out the extra lights, this card is a little brighter then in the picture. I tried to adjust it but it thru the actual color off.

Now to actually get them in the mail....

Supplies: Cream, green, orange and black cardstock, Designer paper- Recollections Halloween, Stampin’ Up! – Twick or Tweet, Recollections-Epoxy Stickers, Celebrate It-Halloween ribbon.

I managed to make a small army of cards this weekend, all except one are Halloween. I am so behind in schedule, I think this may just be my new schedule because it seems to be the norm as of late.

This card is the last from the Close to My Heart gathering that happened over a month ago.....

This is a second card from the last Close to My Heart meeting, I think this technique was double stamping.

I am going to try to tackle some halloween cards this weekend.

Have a great Friday

This is just a quick little post, it is that time of year again for me where I have no idea where my time goes. This is a cute little card/tag that I made at the last Close to My Heart gathering I attended. It was suppose to be a demo on mirror image, I guess I failed that technique :) as I did not put my little vellum flower image upside down. I love the simplicity of this card though.
