Daughters Birthday card

This was something different for me. It is a shaped card. I used a templet from MIRKWOOD. Been awhile since i looked into my stash of templates so this is one I thought would be easy,yeah right. I traced it onto some thick scrapbook paper twice then clued them together. Then used some DAZZLES to make it pop a bit. So here is the outside and inside of it.
The silver and black is not a DAZZLE but the lines across the bottle are.

I forgot to redo this in my Picasa program so it would have had a nicer look.

Here is a cup that i did for a swap that we had to make a shaped card. This is what started me looking at my stash of stuff. I used DAZZLES on the front and back of this one also.
Not the best at cutting out with a the handle,lol. Did a couple before I found one that I liked.The card stock is a 6 by 6 pack. Not sure of the name on it since the cover is gone......lol.
Thats all for today.

It has been a long while since i have done an IRIS FOLDED CARD. This is one I did for a challenge in one of my groups. So with Valentines day coming up I thought I would make a Hershey Kiss.So here is the card.
I used some heavy foil for the silver and some pink paper strips. Now I wish I would have used all foil. Oh well it has been a while since I did this. Going to try to do more of them. Not real good at the cutting out part,lol. But fun to do.

That's all for now. We had lots of sun today but still cold so not much snow melted:(

Some cards

Wow I can't believe that it is February already so thought I better post a few cards that I made for this year.
This is my hubby's birthday card this year. The sentiment is a 97 cent stamp from WalMart.

This was for a dear old friend. Her birthday was the same day as my dh. Same sentiment used. Pretty self explanatory

This was for a valentine swap in one of my groups. The hearts are dazzles. The bottom half of the card is wasi tape. Yeah our Joann's has finally got lots of it in.

Well that is it for the beginning of this year.
It is snowing again here and we could get up to 3 inches of the stuff today..........so ready for spring and warmer weather to get here.
Have a great monday where ever you are.

It has been a little while since I last posted so will add some of the cards I have made in the past month.
Also wanting to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Since I wasn't feeling well I didn't get around to wishing everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS. Hope everyone had a great one with family and friends. We sure did even if I couldn't taste anything,lol. Feeling better today so thought I better get caught up.

Here is a card I made for my Michael Strong stamp group. I used his Silhouette panel of butterflys.
The panels are cut apart and layered on some velum but it doesn't show up under them. Next time i will either put something under them on the tag or ink the velum tag up so it shows. The butterflies are some DAZZLES, the sentiment is from the computer.

Here are a few of my CHRISTMAS CARDS I made this year.
These are all made from one card pkg that was Christmas themed that my dd got my last year.

These are embossed then i used inches to make the desgins.

That's all for tonight.

Here is my  card that I made for our son in law. He turned 40 on Thanksgiving.
The background is from a book of old style of papers. The tag is a free download from PAPER WISHES. Then added some bakers twine and some DAZZLES.
Here is the inside of it.
I  stamped the sentiment then added some more DAZZLES above and below the sentiment. This is also a free download from PAPER WISHES. Both tags are on the same download. Both tags where popped up with dots under them.

That's all for tonight.



It sure has been a little while since my last post so going to post a swap card I made for one of my groups. It was to make a green Christmas card.using the color green. Here is mine.

For our challenge at mss group we had to make a card and put some jewels on it. So I used the tree stamp by Michael Strong and embossed it with Stazon then used some fine gold embossing powder. Then I added different colors of pearls to the trees and a sticker present. Well now i have a couple of Christmas cards made.
