Sorry I have not posted lately but I just get too overwhelmed with stuff and forget to do the things I like to do...anyone ever feel like that. So here are the cards I made for Easter . I am not posting the details but if you have any questions just leave me a message and I will get back to you....Hope you like them. Some are not too fancy because they were for men (boys..you know what I mean.)
My nephew's wife asked me to make some more blocks for a present she wants to give so this was my project this weekend. Short name but more thinking involved.....these blocks are 1/2 inch larger than the others I made. I used my Cricut and some more sentiments from the Verve set "To the Moon". Tiny stars from my stash and Spellbinders. Printed paper is from Martha Stewart.
Off to the next project. Hopefully some Easter things....Pam
Well my nephew and his wife just had a baby girl last weekend and now one of our friends had a baby boy. It was the second for both and they both now have a boy and a girl so families are complete(???). No one knows that for sure but....
I have been very busy making their cards and for Little Miss Molly I also made a set of blocks. Very fun to make as long as you find the papers that match which is the hardest part. The picture of the blocks is odd looking because I had to put them on top of each other so they fit in the picture. They are not meant to be set up that way. They also look like they are not the same size but they are. My nephew's wife has now put her order in to me to make more blocks she can give as presents. I may start a business!!!! That would be fun....
For the blocks and card for Molly I used my new Verve stamps. There are also sentiments on the blocks from a set of cling stamps that I got at Michael's but I can't remember the company, sorry. I love those little animals in the Verve set "To the Moon". I could make baby cards for ever..... For the boy card I used my new Lili of the Valley little baby stamp and sentiment circles. I love that little baby it is soo cute.
Well that is all for now but will be back later with more ....
Just thought I would put it out there that I have a lot of Stampin Up! stamps that are definitely for sale. Too many to list, so just leave me a message or email me if you are looking for anything specific. I was a hobbyist for awhile and have many sets in great or new conditon.
One last post ...I made these cards for my daughter and husbands' birthdays. The one for my daughter was a cased card from Stamps by Judith (love that cupcake) and my husband's was a CC Design stamp from the Sugarplums collection. There that is it for today......
Here are the Valentines I made for my husband , daughter and son. I made my husband's card with the old standby from Stampin' Up...Button Bear and then made him the matching box which I made with the Cricut ...Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge and filled it with his favorite candies. Then I made the kids the same box but with the Inky Antics stamp of the big dog. Hope you like them. The boxes were alot of fun and I will be making more of them for other occasions.
Sorry it has been so long since I posted. Been a little busy and a little lazy. I have a few cards to share and a few other Christmas gift card holders to share.
Two pics are of gift card holders I made for our friend's three kids and one for them . I used Papertrey Stamps (2008 Holiday Tags) I am not sure where I got the idea from and I am sorry about that but not my idea but I liked the idea of making them ornaments.
The Owl card was made from my Cricut and it follows something My Pink Stamper did but I changed it up a little. It was for my godchilds 7th Birthday. Her dad and my husband are both coaches at the same High School and their mascot is an owl.
The next card was made for a good friend's birthday who is also a stamper and also loves Tilda. I wanted to make it a little springyer (I know it is not a word but it fits....lol!)It is made with Happy Tilda from stampingscrapping.com and Basic Grey and Me &My Big Ideas paper and a K&Company butterfly which I colored green with copics. I paper pieced her little outfit.
Well enough for now I will come back and show you the valentines I made.
Till then have a great day!
Sorry about the pictures being all over the place but I don't have the hang of it on how to place them right.
Just thought I should post a pic of my puppy. She actually isn't too much of a puppy anymore but she sure is cute. She is a 10 month old Golden Retriever who we have had since Memorial Day weekend. She is the love of our life. She is just too darn cute for words and is very sweet. She is actually the 5th Golden Retriever my husband and I have had. All have lasted 10 years or more the last one which is pictured in my profile is Reggie who we lost last February after 15 years. She was the best. Well they were all very good dogs and sorely missed. You really can't pick a favorite This one's name is Torre.....as you can see they all have names that are related in some way. They are all Yankee names..but they were all girls...Babe, Casey, Reggie, JoeDi and now Torre. Love them all.
Here are a few of the other Christmas cards I made. Hope you like them. The one with the dog and cat (stamp from Inky Antics) was for my son and his girl friend. It was a gift card holder that I made to hold 5 gift cards for thier dates, dinner, dessert, shopping , baking, and late night warm drinks.
The one with the wreath was a copy of Expressionswithheart.wordpress.com. I loved that card and just had to have everything it had. It is from C.C. Design Sweet November Stamps...Christmas Baby, Cookies and Milk.
The other of course is Tilda and Edwin Skating and then Tilda - Santa's Little Helper. Love them all.
Things have been way to busy around here the last few weeks since before Christmas but finally settling down....many things have happened including my computer being infected with some weird virus it took the computer man three days to get rid of when I was finally able to get in touch with him...I was not home home when it got infected so I can't really say what happened but it it is finally fixed. I was glued to my ipod touch for three weeks getting mail and trying to stay in touch.
I have a lot of pics to download from my camera and many to put up here. It will take a few days but it will get done.
Here are some I did have a chance to download before Christmas
Here is the card I sent to my sister for Christmas...The name of the stamp I believe is Edwin's Snowman. It is a Magnolia Stamp and I just love it. I definitely will be making more with this stamp this year for next Christmas...I love Snowmen.....
Here is a wedding card I made for our next door neighbors' daughter's wedding. It also is a Magnolia Stamp. The name of it is Wedding Couple. Not a great pic because you can't really see the color of the paper in the back ground but it was pretty.
One more thing...here is a picture of the place cards I made for Thanksgiving.....I made them with my Cricut and Gypsy....followed directions from "My Pink Stamper".. They were fun to make and everyone enjoyed them.
Well that is all for now. But when I have more pics downloaded I will be back.....
