tryin to catch up

I have been tryin to catch up on some of my card making, this first card is all CTMH, I cut it out using Cricut Wildcard Cart then ran the pieces though the cuttlebug. The flowers are CTMH Just Blooms summer posies. I used liquid pearls in the center of the flowers.
this next one is using CTMH Happy Healing D1362, the colors aren't showing very well for some reason but I used sunkissed Yellow for the paper and coloring, also used graden green for the sentiment.

This next one is a baby shower card using the Cricut Wildcard cart. I used CTMH sunkissed yellow and heavenly blue cardstock

This is using Daisy and CTMH's Tickled pink collection. Sentiment is from the June SOTM.

THe next couple of cards are also using peices left over from the Tickled pink collection from CTMH. On the first one I colored the center of the flowers with Buttercup marker the used Liquid Glass to attach clear buttons.

One of the nurses left from the clinic so I made her this good luck card using CTMH Best Friends collection.

Wanted a sympathy card with nothing wriiten on the front so I did the sun set, I used CTMH inks, colors are garden green, barn red, sunny yellow, honey, black, used a sponge for this, I can't find my brayer.

I got the idea for this next card from Iona over on the CTMH boards, it looked like it would be fun to make, so while I was EJ's yesterday I used her fishes stamp.

This next one is from EJ's stamp collection also but I can't remember the name of it. I colored the Roses using Copic markers. I really enjoyed spending time with EJ,

Sorry its been over a week

Sorry it has been a little over a week since I posted, I do have a few new cards to share today, the first is made using the paper from the Tickled Pink special from CTMH. (ask me how to get this for FREE during the month of May or slip over to my web site for details on this wonderful Kit.
Inks used are Blush, Holyhock and Crystal Blue.

This next one uses the papers from Tickled Pink and the Wildcard Cart from Cricut, I used Liquid Pearls to make the spinkles on the cupcake.

Next we have the card I made for my mom for mothers day, papers are all CTMH and I used the Walk in my Garden cart from Cricut. Papers are White Daisy, Hoilday Red, and Clover Meadow, I also used my cuttlebug for embossing the WD and the Blush cardstock.

This is the design I learned at the Handcraft House on how to Iris Fold, I made this card for my MIL. White Daisy and Cranberry Cardstock and the flowered paper I got from the HH.

This next ne is a simple sympathy card, I used the cuttlebug to emboss the paper twice first with the dots and then ran it again with the flowers, it is a pretty card. I can't remember where I saw the idea to run the cs twice.

Thanks for stopping by, all comments are welcome.

Happy Sunday

So yesterday I went to the Handcraft House which is almost 30 min away and while I was there I got to make some great cards with Beki, Sue, Barbara and Lori, and I had a great time, we used the copic markers and did one card with Iris fold,, this was the first time I had amde one with the iris fold it was fun, learning the right way to color with copics was cool. I only have a few of these.
They had received a shipment of Flower Soft in and that was the first thing I looked for when I got there and I am glad I did as by the time I was ready to leave a couple of the colors were gone. I picked up the sweet pea, heather and delphinium. I had to finnsh up some card orders first thing this morning before I could play with the new stuff.
I have been over to spiltcoaststampers lookin around and I have seen some wonderful flower pot cards and some of my fellow CTMH consultants have made some very nice ones, so I decided today to give it a try, I hope you like how mine turned out.

You can't tell to much but the pot is sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, to try to make it look a little weathered. This was a joy to make, think I am going to make some for the birthdays I have at work this month.
