new address

This card was also discovered in my craft space overhaul.  It was made by my former Impress coworker, Jen.  She is ├╝ber talented in anything crafty.  She makes stunning cards, hires out for scrapbook layouts and production, and now works for Stampin' Up!  This girl has talent!!

thinking of you

Here's another card that my friend, Myra, made for me eons ago.  I unearthed this gem when I cleaned up my craft space.  She used vellum around the entire card and then used colored pencils to color the back side.  The pictures don't do it justice.

with deepest sympathy

I made this card for our mothers and daughters stamp group.  I completely stole the card from the amazing Debby Hughes.  I love all the white space and the paper strips are great for those extra pieces lying around.
stamp: A Muse seashells & "with deepest sympathy"
ink: A Muse french roast; ColorBox old rose
other: square punch (for banner edges), rhinestones

celebrate in style

My daughter had her 5th birthday party and requested an American Girl doll theme.  I wanted something easy to reproduce that was similar to the logo and color scheme.  I was able to find a comparable font online ("innerStar") for the inside information.



For those who don't know the logo:

stamp: A Muse "Celebrate in Style"; Papertrey Ink star line
ink: VersaColor opera pink, ColorBox frost white
other: Papertrey Ink die cuts, embossing powder

My son was invited to a LEGO Ninjago 6th birthday party.  For those not immersed in that world, it's basically a LEGO ninja series (that's wildly popular for that age range).  I whipped this card up for my son to give to his friend.

For those who don't know the Ninjago series.

no stamps
no ink
just cardstock, yellow construction paper, and a permanent pen

wish big

I made this card many moons ago at a Stampin' Up! party.  I guess it could be a winter birthday card, but the pine needles scream Christmas to me.

long gone

oh my!  I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted a card.  This is the other reason I've been so busy.  Baby #4 is on the way!!  I'm due any day now. I don't plan on making too many cards in the next few months either.  Sorry, I'll be back though.
