Baby Card

Hi Everyone:
Well today I'm off to a baby shower for the property manager where I work. They have adopted a baby boy from somewhere in Africa and they are awaiting his arrival. Her Sister and friends are having a shower for her and this is the card that I made to go along with the gift.
The inside sentiment reads:
A home where a child
is welcomed and loved
is the happiest home
Amber and Ali
Wishing you
and your new son
a lifetime filled with
love and happiness.

Double Diagonal Folded Cards

This is one of two Double Diagonal folded cards that I did. I used double sided cardstock to do the fold instead of paper like in the tutorial at splitcoast stampers. the tags have flowered paper with a flower of the two different colors of the cardstock and then I put the words Happy and Birthday on them and to tie it all together in the them put a birthday cake on the front of them.

Gatefold Sympathy

This is a sympathy card that I made for a lady that lives in the condo where I work. She wants to send it to Jamacia and I'm happy that she liked it. It's another gatefold card with a simple verse on the inside.


Red ATC's

Here are the red atc's I made for a swap at CMBH, one of the groups I belong to. I used stamps to make them the cupcake one is from a new small set that I just purchased and added some glitter onto the icing so that it shone a bit. The other stamp is a bow of flowers I borrowed from a friend with the buzzing lady bug.

This is a music card with a matching atc. I decided to use paper that had music notes on it and made a teabag folded medalion and the saying is one that I love it says :

Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything "Plato"

Black and White ATC's

These are black and white atc's which I made for a swap. The flower ones are stamped vase embossed with white ink, the flowers are made with daisy punch and the black dots just a 1/4 in punch and the stems are done with white pencil.

The butterflies are stamped and embossed with white on black then cut out, the antenae are stamins for flowers painted black and put on with tape, then the butterflies are put on with silicone to give it dimension. The word Dream is a vinyl black stickers I've had around for ages, and the background is swirls done on the cuttlebug. Cindy

Scrap Friendship Cards

Here are a couple of Friendship cards done. They were done using scrap paper and cut it with a rotary tool into curved pieced, laid out on the card with Friendship stamped in corresponding colr and flowers and brads added afterwards. Great way to use up some of the scraps around.

In the Kitchen

Here are a couple of cards and matching atc's I did for a in the kitchen swap. It was a fun and challenging swap to do.
