Red and Black ATCs

These are two atc's that I made for a red and black swap. the japanese lady also has gold glitter on her dress and also some on the flowers in the corners. The gold on the flower one are embossed peel off stickers.
Enjoyed making these.

Black and White Card

this is one of the cards that I've done for the black and white swap I'm in. The vase was stamped twice. The first one is the bottom layer , then I put the roses into the vase and then stamped a second time and put it on top of the first layer to give the effect of a proper vase of flower.

The theme was black and white, and I must say it is very striking to look at.

card caddy

This is the front of one of the card caddys I made for a swap. I know that when some people make these they put cards of the same theme into them. I was thinking of doing that, but then decided that I would add 4 different cards into them. I was happy with the final results. I hope the ladies I made them for will be happy with them.

Teabag folded cards

These are two cards I made for a teabag folding swap that I'm in. I enjoy doing teabag folding every now and then. Both of these folds I'm not sure of who came up with them but are very nice. My friend Carrie shared them with me and they were a lot of fun to do Thanks Carrie.

Bar Mitzvah

Well I was asked if I could come up with a card for a Bar Mitzvah for someone. So I said that I would work on it, and have it for them next week. Well this morning, I came up with this card. I'm ok with it. What do you think?

Triangle tri fold card

This is the first of these cards I made. I used a combonation of stamp'n up stamp and stamps from SeeD set that I have with a friendship verse.
I enjoyed making this card. I've since made a couple more which I'll post at a later date when I have a chance to scan them, but they are slightly larger in size.

These are two matchbook cards that I made for a swap at CMBH as well. I'm not quite sure what I think of them yet. I enjoyed doing them, but not sure if I am liking the results yet.

Multi Stamp Swap Cards.

These were made for another swap at CMBH. The first is using an all night media Japanese set. I used the bamboo for the background on the faux silk and then stamped it in gold on the black and then stamped the Japanese lady on red. The second is using a bug set from Stampn' up. They were both fun cards to make.

Thank you Cards

These are two Thank you cards that I made for a swap at CMBH (cards made by hand).
The first is using felt fusion. and the second is using a doodle stencil. and some lovely black and white papers. These were a joy to make for this swap.

Another swap, this time the theme was summertime. I love this set of stamps from Stampn' Up. I colored them with Marvy Le Plume markers doing with watercoloring technique. The background is done using paisley embossing folder and cuttlebug.

Shaped Cards

These are another two swap cards. The theme of the swap was shaped cards, they had to be anything other than a square or rectangle. So I did Octagons, and then added circles and 3D images onto them. I like the way they turned out. I think that we don't experiment with different shapes often enough as we all tend to do squares or rectangles as they are easier to cut. Anyway it was a fun swap to do.

Rose Cards and matching ATC's

Here is a rose card with matching atc that I made today. I used the cuttlebug to do the background of the card, then punched out the hearts and made 3d roses for the front. It worked out perfectly as the sheet had a smaller rose of the same type. Oh this is for another swap. I'm trying to catch up on.

Summertime ATC's

These are some summertime atc's that I did for another swap. I did 6 since I like to keep two for myself. I've not decided which one's I'll keep for me yet.

Swing (Flip Flop ) Card

This is a swing (flip-flop) card that I made for a swap. I just love this stamp set. It is perfect for anyone LOL.

Monochromatic Cards

These are two cards which I made for a monochromatic swap I'm in. I like the way they turned out, and they were quite simple to make.
