This is a shutter card and was for a swap at PAPERWISHES. We had a list of things we had to add to it . I got the template from a link. The one i picked was from OWH and it is really easy.
 I know that you score at 2" 4"and 6" and you have a larger back page to add stuff too. I like this one it is so easy.

Here is a link to the shutter card that i used



Here are some of the cards I made using ANNA GRIFFIN'S CHRISTMAS CARD KIT. I bought it during the summer and wow i love it. There are tons of things in the kit and some are 3 dimensional. So enjoy.
   and some more
and a couple of my grandson making two, one for his teacher and one for his mom and dad.

Well thats all for now on the christmas card.

I made a couple of cards for the party at the OUTLAWZ site today for the twisted thursday.
First one is a big birthday card and the twist for me is a big pocket on the front.
I also outlined the pocket with some DAZZLES and added a metal button.

 The second is my take on a country christmas. The twist is the jute, lol i totally forgot what it was called and had to go look it up,hmmmm, got to much happening in my mind to remember things,lol. Enjoy

I really enjoy this site. Lots of inspiration and fun here. Not like another site that i won stamps on but never got them, and that was in June. I finally told them not to bother to send them.Enough said. This is done on craft cardstock, not sure if I like it yet or not.
The cardstock says heavy and is a set from WalMart but it is kinda flimsy. And hard to take a picture of.
Well thats all for today gotta get some work done around the house, just doing this up while the kitchen floor dries.

Here is my sketch card for the OUTLAWZ SITE. Love when it is an easy one because I have so much trouble doing them,lol.


Here is my card for the color challenge over at the OUTLAWZ. The color given was purple and we had to add 2 other colors and put a twist of some sort to it. So i used orange and green and the twist is i added two layers to the pumpkin. It is hard to see but they are on the right hand side. I took two pictures so maybe one will show it more.
Here is the second one.

This is a fall card for a challenge at the outlawz. I used a digi from Michael Stong that is a closenia,not sure I spelled that right. But it looks like his stamps. He gave all the participants in the blog hop one. love it. So here is my card.
I used the scanner that is in windows 8.1 and not use to it yet, so not real happy with the scan but was able to fix it in the Picasa as I do all my cards.
The hello is a dazzle and the leaf is a sticker.

Here we are suppose to share the first stamp we got  off of Mike......ummm I don't remember but I am thinking it was this tree stamp. I see he has a set of them now but when I got this one it was the only one by itself. I don't remember when I joined this group but it was a friend in another group that told me about it. So I checked it out and joined. I enjoy his stamps and love to create with them. So the first card I made was with some toilet paper and his frame stamp. Saw this some where and can't remember where but wrote down the instructions. Which are simple. Use 8 piece's of one ply toilet paper and some water, use a stipple brush and wet brush apply to stamp and push it gently into the nooks and crannies. Let dry then remove. Here are a couple of pictures of the finished project.
      Now here is the other side. One side is more defined then the other not sure if you can see it. Also do one sheet of toilet paper at a time. Should have put this in earlier.
And here is the card I made out of the tree stamp.

ok you should have come from   Herma  and you can go to  here Lori If you get lost along the way go here to start. Hetty. I hope I got all this right.

Almost forgot to show the card I made from the toilet paper,lol.

It is a bit hard to take a picture of it . But it is a black and white .
Enjoy or hop it has been 6yrs in the making and going strong.

I am not sure what others are seeing on my blog. But i am trying to change the background. I still see the patchwork on the blog and only the center being what i am changing to, hope that makes sense. I can not get the  HOTBLIGGITY BLOG off of my page. Any one know how to do this?? I have already tried to delete it but still there, ummmm so frustrating. I will keep at it and hope one day i can see what is in my preview pain............ OK done

I like a clean and simple card. Seems i tend to make more of these then others.

I made his card a bit bigger this year. All stuff used on it are from PAPERWISHES.

I used some crystal lacquer on the happy,ice cream and cupcake to make them pop more. The ice cream and cupcake are on pop dots to make them dimensional. This one was fun to make. Can't believe he is nine already.

Here is a new purple card that i will replace on the OUTLAWZ CAS CHALLENGE. I just don't think it was right, so here is my new card for it. It will go into my OWH box.
The stamp is from a GINAK not sure of the name of it. Will check an add it to this post later.
Ok the stamp set is called BOTANICALS. The background is made by applying ink to the stamping block and stamping on to the cardstock then inking up the image and stamping on top of the background. Pretty easy with lots of different colors. And so easy. I did clean the block before adding the stamp image.

I went and put two challenge's together and didn't realise it till i look again at the challenge,lol. Did the color one as well but can't use it. I used the light house stamp from MARKS FINEST PAPERS A HEINRICH CO.
That is all for today.

Here is another starburst card. I really like these cards. The hard part is finding what paper to
 Will decide what kind of sentiment later.

Friday, August 1, 2014


Here is my first try at making a sunburst card. So easy too. Will be making some more of these.
The papers are from a kit  I got from PAPERWISHES. It was to make those big flowers i have posted in another post. Love some of the papers and they are squares so not wasting lots of paper.

This is a card I made for a little boy from Foxboro MA. He is 5yrs old and has cancer and all he wants is lots of birthday cards. I got this from an online group on fb. 

The happy birthday is metal and from PAERWISHES. I got a box full of things from them that i ordered,in   it is a card making booklet. The inside is from the same booklet. I am not sure of the name of the booklet. But it has lots of stuff in it for making cards. I believe the embossing folder is one of DARCEY'S.
I did sign it from us. It was hard making it for someone so young who is so ill. I didn't see when his birthday is but last i heard he was getting lots of cards. Hope this one makes it thru the mail ok.

Here are a few more cards made. Trying to get caught up with what i have done.

HELLO is a stamp I found at Walmart. The heart is a free download from PAPERWISHES and i used some washi tape on the top of the dotted paper.

Thats all for today.


Here is a picture of 4 cards I made for OPERATION WRITE HOME.
The background was made using the stamping block with ink on it then stamped onto card stock. Then i used some stamps from a GINAK STAMP set for the flower and sentimen.

Here are a few new cards I have made lately.

The first one is a birthday card for a friend. Which is late,lol.

The second one is a birthday for my bil.

The third one is for a swap over at PAPERWISHES.

The fourth one is for another swap and it was to use an animal. This is a large stamp and was bought years ago to put on a shirt for our daughter. And you use fabric paint.

This is for a challenge for FOSTV  and you had to use a button. Well my background is all buttons. I have had this embossing edge folder for a while and wanted to try it on this cards. So I used it 7 times on the card to make the background then i used a stamp from Walmart that i got some time ago. Love the old phone. Added a tag that is from PAPERWISHES  as a free download and a button and ribbon. I don't have any stamps from this site that was able to be used in this challenge so that is why i used this one.
   Thats all for today.

I was just playing the other day with stuff I had on hand and thought this would make a cute flower card. Since then I am going to enter it into two challenge's. One is for  SPEEDYFOX. You had to use a flowerpot. So I used this stamp that I already had done up quite awhile ago. It is by MICHAEL STRONG. This is for challenge 217. It is a MARKS FINEST PAPER A HEINRICH CO.

    I used some DAZZLES on the pot and added a butterfly to the corner. I will enter this also in the MSS group challenge that is to do a summer card. This is summer to me,lol, flowers,butterflies and birdies.

I was playing with this new folder and thought this would be cute so decided to ink it up after i embossed it. The hello stamp is a large one so it fit nicely in the center. It really emboss's very deep also. Love when that happens.

Still might add a flower to one corner, it needs something one of those days where i just can't make up my mind.  


Here is a card using one inch squares and a MICHAEL STRONG FLOWER STAMP. The center is a small hello stamp from PAPERWISHES. I have embossed it using the swissdot folder. The squares are from a small pkg of TIM HOLTZ card stock. Enjoy.
 This is another gatefold card.

This is a hello card using MICHEAL STRONG'S frame stamp. I had already had some of these made up so thought I would try to make it into a tag. I then used some DAZZLE BOARDERS  to out line it. The embossing folder is one by DARCY and is clocks. Love it.

 Thats all for today. Enjoy!

Here are a couple of new cards I made this past week.

These are a couple of gate fold cards.
the top one has some lace on it and a free download from PAPERWISHES.  I added the hello and some DAZZLES to the front of the tag. The bottom is the inside.  I added a DAZZLE OF A BIRD. Then i wrote a letter for the inside.  

 This card is for a gatefold challenge. I used some paper from PAPERWISHES AND SOME DAZZLES on the front. On the inside i embossed a tree and added some flowers. Now looking at it I think i should have colored some of the tree bark in too.

Thats all for today.

A few more christmas cards

Made a few of these with some new embossing folders,added some fed ribbons along the sides then tied in a not. another bridge card. ...
