Fifteen Minutes or Less Cards

Hi everyone! I’m back with two super quick cards I created! I know if you have been following me for any length of time you know I am the keeper of all paper scraps from my projects and you also know that I generally have several unfinished projects laying around. Since I have Eileen Hull’s newest diecuts, Foilio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, I thought I would use the flowers from the set to finish these cards. I also used a few others diecuts by Eileen that are retired and some that can still be purchased. This is what I had laying around in my craftroom waiting to be finished.

I started with the kraft and black diamond cardstock, it was a piece of 6″x6″ cardstock that I folded in half to create a 3″x6″ card base, which I had already used scraps of patterned cardstock and a tiny piece of a lace diecut to decorate the front. That’s where I stopped on that card because at the time I really wasn’t sure how I wanted to finish it? I cut out a label from Eileen’s Kitchen Labels Thinlits (retired) and added the Hello diecut that I had leftover from a previous project and adhered to the front of the card.

I cut out two of the leaf sprigs and two of the flowers from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. I shaped the flowers with a Stylus, glued under the hello sentiment and added a flatback pearl to the center of the flower.

The second card I had cut from the Needle Book Diecut (retired). I folded it and added an assortment of patterned cardstock to the front. I had one of the “fringe” flowers (Sweet Treats for You Set Diecuts) leftover from a previous project and cut out several more flowers and leaf sprigs from the Folio Page Set, shaped and adhered to the front of the card.

Also from my stash I had this mini cupcake image that I added with the flowers for something fun.

Do you think you could make these cards in less than 15 minutes ? Or maybe even 10 minutes? Let me know in the comments below.

Circus Love

Hi everyone! I found these scalloped cards I cut out from the Sizzix Scallop Card diecut several years ago along with a 4 1/2″x6 1/2″ pad of The Great Circus Company from Paper Studio. The set of Graphic 45 Cling Le Cirque 3 rubber stamps I had purchased at a great price at Tuesday Morning (2.99). Which of course I couldn’t pass up. šŸ˜‰ I couldn’t decide on if I wanted to do Valentine’s Day theme cards or just wanted to keep them generic and finally wound up doing generic theme. So farĀ this is what I came up with…I have a couple of more to do. šŸ™‚

I stamped and used pastel chalks to color the images and then set the chalk with hairspray. Also I printed the sentiments from the computer and I inked all the edges with brown chalk ink.

I added sequins for a little bit of fun bling to the cards. Plus it is flat and should mail easily.Ā 
If you have any questions about these cards please let me know.

Canvas Corp Cards at CHA

Hi everyone! It seems like it has been awhile since my last post but I needed to take a moment and be still. I had been non-stop all the way up until the first of the year working on design team projects. I was also asked by Camille from Canvas Corp if they sent me cardstock (new product) would I be willing to do cards for the possibility of being used at CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) or being used in an upcoming look-book. Well, of course I said yes. šŸ™‚ I came up with 12 cardsĀ which I mailed off at the last possible moment (December 31st) and was very happy that it arrived in Camille’s hands on the 3rd of January.
I am now able to share with everyone since CHA is over with. Also Jennifer from Crafty Card Gallery had gone to CHA and took photos of my cards onĀ display which I included some in this blog post. Ā 
Hope you enjoy the cards. šŸ™‚

If you have any questions please let meĀ know. Thanks for stopping by, hopeĀ your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

P.S. I revamped my blog and had a new banner designed by Tiffany Jane which I think she did an awesome job on! šŸ™‚

Birthday Cake!

Hi everyone! I’m here to share two 3″x5 1/2″ birthday cards I created. I cut them from one sheet of 8 1/2″x11″ piece of hot pink cardstock. I misted a doily with Tattered Angels Mantis Chalkboard mist and what didn’t fit on one card I used on the other card. I used scraps of cardstock and digi cake images from Cassi’s Creations which I used Stickles to give them a little glitter. I finished off with a birthday sentiment I printedĀ from theĀ computer and sequins.

The hardest thing about the cards was fussy cutting the cakes out. šŸ™‚Ā 

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!

Cut out two rosettes, spider and a banner. Adhere both rosettes together and glue seal punch on top of rosette. Adhere banner to card and then glue rosette on top of banner. Next glue spider on top of rosette and adhere wigglie eyes to spider.

I used a 2 inch Head Pin to create these fun “hat pins”. First add a sequin then a Connie Crystal beads. Add a drop of glue and seam binding around the pin. Also adhere a Dew Drop to the top of each pin and then add to the card.

God’s Timing and You Mean the World to Me Cards

Hi everyone and happy first day of September!!! I’m back!!! I have been onĀ vacation this past week in Fort Lauderdale. There was a few rain showers but other than that it was a perfect week of lounging on the beach reading and watching the ocean.Ā 
I would like to share three cards I created for a customer. All the cards is a 6″X6″ piece cardstock which I folded into a 3″x6″ card base. The stamps for the God’s Timing cardĀ are from Unity Stamps. I used aĀ variety Ā of scraps of scrapbook paper, sequins and I used Stickles to add a bit of sparkle to the flower stamp.

These two cards I used aĀ sentimentĀ stamp from Unity, more scraps of scrapbook paper and I cut the larger heart from an old map and smaller heart from scraps using a Sizzix heart diecut.

All three cards pretty simple to make huh? If you have any questions just give me a holler.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!

Celebrations and Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone! I’m back to share a couple cards I created for a customer. They are really easy and quick to make. TheĀ card base is a 6″x6″ piece of cardstock folded to make a 3″x6″ card. I used scraps of scrapbook paper and layered, printed a happy birthday sentiment from the computer and used a flower from K & Company Sweet Nectar Specialty Punch-Out Pad .

Easy peasy!!! šŸ™‚

The next two cards I used the Sizzix Card, Scallop #3 diecut. I used more scraps of scrapbook paper, flower punch out from K & Company, flowers from Close to My Heart and sequins for the center of the flower.

This card I used a Spellbinder diecut…I’m not sure the name of the die since I got this in a swap???, sequins, Prima flower and the Celebrate Big stamp is from Unity Stamps.

This card can be used for birthday, anniversary, new job, etc.

I hope this has given you some inspiration to create some cards for yourself or as a gift for someone special. Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoying creating!!!
