Dancing As Fast As I Can

Because I had so many holiday cards to make I got behind on my birthday stash. When I saw Amy’s layout I decided to make some birthday cards. This is what I came up with. All I can say is it sure is pink!

Bushels of Blessings

Back with another Thanksgiving card…. Since I made so many I feel like I have to share some of them. I am glad though that I have managed to get these done early. It is hard to believe that Halloween is almost here and then before we know it Thanksgiving will be upon us. I am trying very hard to get back in the routine of exercising so the holiday weight gain won’t catch up with me. But how can you stamp all day and work in exercise????? We are hosting game night at our house tomorrow so I better get busy cleaning up a little. I will just hit the high spots and turn the lights down low so maybe they won’t notice the spider webs.

I will try to get back later with another card to share.

Thankful Times 30

I had an order for 30 Thanksgiving cards! I don’t do well with mass production because I want every card to be special. That just makes it harder on me though. I have been doing better and when I make a card I really like I make several of the same design. This is one I made for the T’giving order, but I liked it so much I decide to keep it for myself!

My First Post!

I have been working on this new blog for several days and finally had time to create my first post! I decided Beate’s weekend challenge would be a great place to start. I liked this layout so much that I made 2 cards J

The first one is a non-traditional Christmas card, but I do love pink for Christmas. I used an old stand-by, Lovely as a Tree. I stamped it with grey ink first and then stamped it with my glue pad and sprinkled pink glitter on it. I also lined the edges of the image with glue and added some glitter. The paper is Basic Grey from the Sugared Collection. I added some glitter to the center of the flowers to tie it all together.

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree and Snow Swirled – Stampin’ Up

Paper: Basic Grey Sugared and SU

Ink: SU Grey and Essential Glue Pad

Accessories: Ribbon (unknown)

My second card uses a stamp from Our Daily Bread. I saw this stamp set and it was a must have. It is so elegant. The paper is Basic Grey (again). This is an older pattern called Silk Necktie. I used my gel pens to glitter it up because I thought it was sort of dark. The funky fiber is some I have had forever and thought it might add some texture to the card. I also added some small rhinestones to the king’s turbans. I am not sure you can see them though.

Stamps: We Three Kings – Our Daily Bread

Paper: Basic Grey Silk Necktie and SU

Ink: Palette Noir and SU markers and gel pens

Accessories: Gold fiber (unknown)
