new cards

It has been a little bit since I have been here sorry, I have a few new cards to show this evening. these first 5 were done with one random stamped sheet of 1381 White Daisy cs, I used My Acrylix stamp set D1186 Rustic Flower, Z1283 Autumn buttons, Z1094 Embroidery Floss, Z1052 Ric Rac Ribbon, 1275 Outdoor Denim cs, Z2140 Outdoor Denim exclusive ink, X5639 Sweet leaf cs, Z2153 Sweet leaf ink, Z1215 Outdoor denim brad from the autumn collection, D1283 Say it in Style stamp set, and wild cards Cricut cart for the happy birthday.

This one was done using D1186 Rustic Flower, the hummingbird is from C1389 So Sweet my Acrylix stamp set, 1381 White daisy cs, I stamped the flowers onto the card and then stamped them on an extra sheet of cs and cut them out, after stamping on the card base I cut around the flowers and then pop dotted the cut out flowers on top of the other cut flowers, I used outdoor denim buttons for the center of the flowers, I sponged Z2153 Sweet Leaf ink onto the bottom of the card. I used coloring pencils for the bird.

this is a picture of the card opened so you can see how the flowers were cut on the base.

This one I made for someone who had twins and got a boy and a girl, I saw this design somewhere and it was done with just stamping so I decided to do it with my new Cricut cart New Arrival and I think it turned out okay. The ducks were cut a 1/4 and I put Z1217 Metal bitty brads on it make it look like little hooks. I used 1285 Heavenly blue cs, 1299 Baby Pink cs, 1240 Sunkiss yellow cs, Z2140 Outdoor demin ink, and some yellow ribbon I had hangin around.
this one was fun to make.

These next 2 I made for MJ who is retiring at the end of this week, this design is from the Felicity collection, I changed mine just a bit as there are no buttons and no ribbon.

And I finnished my Christmas page for Hunter's album, I just have to put the journeling on it now.

I hope you have enjoyed the new cards, comments are always welcome.

new things

Hello, I just love the New Spring Idea book, one of sure to be a favorite is the new X7119B Veranda paper pack. On page 8 of the idea book is a card that I really liked and I needed a special thank you card for someone, the card I made is almost the same as the book except I made a few minor changes, not much. I used C1389 So Sweet stamp set which is another favorite, 1771 Waterbrush, Z2769 Creme Brulee ink, Z2164 Sorbet ink, Z2165 Juniper ink, Z2120 Garden Green ink, Z1131 Creme Brulee ribbon rounds. I made 2 of these cards each just a little different, the top one has little chocolate pearls and the second has white ones. and the ribbons are a little different.

I decided to get some scrapbooking done, I want to get caught up on my scrapbooking so I started with Hunter's book. I used the X7112B Animal Cookies paper pack. This is cute and fun papers. I used my cricut and Alphalicious cart for the letters. I decided to wait and put my journaling on later after I posted pictures. I still want to add a little more to the pages but I will later.
This first one is Main Frame from the 9031 Reflections book.

Ensemble Piece -9030 Imagine Book

Overture - 9030 Imagine Book

I really like having these books, they come in very handy.
