Such great Inspiration.....

I have been following a blog of a wonderful scrapper called Sherrie Scraps with passion .  If you haven't visited her blog I suggest you do because she is so inspiration and shares great instructions on different things she does with her cards.  This wedding card was made with a recent post she shared as inspiration.  Although alot of the card is different the basic design and techniques are there.

I used a stamp from Hampton Art Cling Stamps and colored in with my copic markers and fussy cut it out for my couple on the front of the card.  The back ground cut is from forever young which Sherrie used as her base of her card.  I didn't even know that was on that cart and looked so great with her cut she used that it gave me the idea to try this glamorous  couple.  I folowed her instruction she gave in a tutorial on the bow and decided to hang a few charms from it to glam my card up a little and also did some embossing with my cuddlebug and distressed with Tim Holtz Inks bundle sage and antique linen.  Making cards is a learning process that I try different styles and types.  This card has a little vintage flair to it !!

Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think I can always use constructive criticism.

It must be spring ... Weddings

I made a remake of an early card and geared it more towards a wedding..  Change the color up and added a few more butterflies i punched out  and pearled up the flower blossoms on this one

I love the look of embossing on a predominate white card don't you????

The Events Keep Piling up

It must be spring because so much is going on that I need cards for!!!  I started off this week making invitations for my granddaughters Birthday Project in June.

I used the live simply cartridge for this adorable lady bug.   Tays favorite color is red so this seemed very appropriate and it goes along with Bitten By the Bugs 2 challenge this week!!!!!  Simple but nice and 10 ot those done in a snap!!!!!

My Dads So Great!!!!

I had purchased some digi stamps from The Greeting Farms and decided to give my hand at trying some copic marker coloring....  I have seen so many other cards done this way and tis little cutie reminded me of one of my granddaughers so I thought I would make a card up for her to give to her dad.... this could be used for either a birthday card or fathers day card or a just because I love you card!!!I gound the Paper in my huge stack of paper pads I never used and based the design around the background paper.  The paper pad is an old stack I purchased put out by a division of Creativity, Inc.  called foof a la paper pad.  Nothing fancy just need to work on some different styles to get those creative juices going!!!!  Thanks for taking a peek!!!!

Inspirational Birthday Card

I thought i would try making an embossed card with some punched embellishments which I never do.  This started out being a white on white but decided to add a little color to give it a little more depth.  I never use a color ink when stamping a sentiment but this seem to work well with the rest of my card.  Definitely a learning process for me!!!!  I see so many beautiful embossed card I just had to give this a try.....
