Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Birthday cards are really fun to make, especially when you have the perfect stamps and cardstock.  This card was made for my brother-in-law’s birthday.  Its always harder for me to make masculine cards, but I think this one came out pretty good.

3 cheers to you cardI really like how crisp the colors look when I put the black layer onto the colored cardstock.  This card was super easy to make once I got started 🙂

~Happy Birthday Harry ~

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Did you ever make a card that you can’t wait to send?  Well I just did and I hope my niece Nicole likes it as much as I had fun making it for her.

I used Work Shops on the Go, Blossom Card Making Kit from Close To My Heart to make this card.  In this kit there are two stamps that have a design that looks to me like a piece of washi tape. Well, I love washi tape and have ALOT of it, so I decided to use that instead.  I think it turned out even better then if I used the stamps.  That’s why we make handmade cards, so we can create and make our own original works of art 🙂

For added dimension I wrapped the washi tape around pieces of cardstock, so it really popped off the card.  When I was done with the front of this card it looked great but it needed something, so I took a sponge dabber and lightly put the same color watermelon ink used in the word Wish and brushed the edges of the card.  It really added the perfect touch.

Now for the inside.  I used the stamp that came with the kit but added some stickles for some “bling” and to really make it look fun!

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Every time that I make a greeting card I take a few pictures.  Well my file is getting really big, which means that I have not shared with you all of my fun creations.

This card was for my sister-in-laws birthday.  She loves cats, plus her cat is really fluffy like the cat in this rubber stamp by Stampabilities.  I wanted to keep the card simple, yet not boring so I embellished with some ribbon from Ribbon Trends and the small flower that I made with the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge and Cricut Expression machine.

Using Copic sketch markers I just outlined the image and it gave it just the right amount of color.  The very muted background was done with a sponge dauber and memento inks.

I have heard this saying before and I thought it was really funny but didn’t have a stamp, so I used my own handwriting and wrote the sentiment on the front of the card as well as the inside.  The rest of the saying inside reads… The more you have the more you want to gag.

The smile on the cat is so confident and is telling us that, I am cute and I know it 🙂

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I hand stamped for my father-in-law aka Poppa.

I just think the stamps from Art Impression are so funny.  When I started designing this card I took this relaxed man sitting in a chair and decided to put him on the beach, under a palm tree.  That’s a good way to spend your birthday if you asked me 🙂

Since I don’t have an air brush and I didn’t want to use lots of different color cardstock for the background, I decided to take out my watercolor pencils that have been in this pouch for years and see what I could do.  I also used some Copic Sketch  markers to color this guys clothes.

Once I stamped the palm tree it looked like it was just growing in the middle of the sand, so I found a stamp of this boat in my stash of rubber stamps, and once I added it to the bottom of the tree it totally looked like it belongs.  Added some layers of cardstock to the base of the card, attached some brass brads to the corners and it’s done.

It still amazes me how by just using 3 rubber stamps you can make such a cool handmade/handstamped greeting card.

~ Hope you enjoyed your Day At The Beach ~

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Have you ever had so much fun making a card that you totally get lost in your own little world?  Well I have and I just did 🙂

I took a piece of cardstock and stamped the same flower image in it until it filled up the page. then just started coloring with every Copic marker that I have.  When I was done I punched  each one out with the paper punch.

So now I had this pile of flowers and needed to create some kind of card so put these beautiful flowers on.  I remember seeing a card that was cut on an angle and then folded into thirds.  I cut a piece of cardstock 12″ x 5 1/2″.  Then I marked the cardstock on the right side at 2 1/2″  and from that point to the point at the top of the card at 5 1/2″ I cut the cardstock on that angle.  Then scored at 4″ 8″ and folded with peaks and valley fold.

Once I put the flowers onto the card, I noticed once it was open that that backs of the flowers were just plain white cardstock and really didn’t like the way it looked.  So, I  colored more flowers and used adhesive to make a double sided flower.  Now it looks great from all angles.

I also had a paper punch of leaves and just added some randomly around the card for the final special touch and dimension.

This was a great card to make when you just feel like coloring.  You can use Copic markers like I did, or colored pencils, watercolors, anything that you like to color with will work great!  Remember it’s you artwork and you can do anything that makes you happy when you create.

I really had fun so decided to make another card but just changed the base of the cardstock.  Also I added my circle handmade stamp and made it the center of the flower.
