More Cards and some Scrapbooking...

Starting with the cards....

 To see the cards larger, just click on the card.  The first card is super simple.  I used a 3-D Tim Holtz embossing folder, backed it with black, added a ribbon and a sentiment.  The second card is also a 3D embossed background. I cut the leaves from vellum. Cut the hugs from red and back it in black.  Stamped a sentiment on white and put it on a red card base.

I still love these red blooms! Die is from Penny Black I think.  I cut the background with a TH die and the peek a boo window is a Die-namics die. The next card...decorative panel cut with a Spellbinders die.  I used dies for the branch, leaves and the bird.  Sentiment is from PTI (I think).

The flowers on this card were hand painted with water colors.  Still working on my watercolor skills! LOL!  The next card is a SSS die that I layered 3 times and then did a little ink blending on the card base before attaching the die cut.

This last card was made using the center of the previous die cut.  I also layered it 3 times.  I inked the background with distress inks by masking off areas with post-it tape.

This layout is a photo of my Mama taken in 1927. I used Carta Bella papers. The flowers are SSS dotted blooms stamp.

Photo of my SIL and grandson fishing.  Super simple layout.  I let the paper do the work.

Photo of my Mama taken in 1939.  She was 14 years old.  I used a bunch of OLD stuff from my stash to create this layout.

Thanks for hanging in there!  I know it's a lot, but since I can't really go anywhere right now...I get to spend LOTS of time in my craft room!  Hope all of you are staying in and staying safe from this nasty virus!

Thanks for stopping by...and Thank You to all of you for the sweet comments you always leave for me.  I appreciate you more than you know!

Back with MORE Birthday cards!!

Still working on birthday cards for my DIL.  She's still working at the moment, so maybe these cards will brighten someone's day!  There's quite a few here, so be prepared for photo overload. LOL!

The first card is difficult to see as it is made entirely with mirror card stock.  I embossed the background, then layered the oval fancy frame (Spellbinders) with the 25 and a banner with "years".  the 25 is made by stacking layers and topping them with glitter numbers.  The next card I stamped the background layer, then cut out the center with a die.  The die cuts a tiny border and also the rectangle from the middle.  I then cut the tiny border from red card stock and replaced it around the center after coloring it with copics.

These next two are quick cards.  The turtle stamp is VERY old...not even sure who makes it.  I just cut out the "peek a boo" window and put the image behind it.  I then added a thin white frame on top of the green card stock.  The next card if the Gerber daisy, stamped on white, with a tiny black stitched frame on a red card panel. Colored with Copics.

These next two are a slider card (and the photo below is the tag when pulled out.  I used a die from Sunny Studios.  Balloons were stamped and hand cut and the sentiments are from a really old stamp set.

The yellow flowers are from a Penny Black stamp.  I stamped the image colored it and then cut the side of the card stock in order to have the flower hanging off.  I printed a piece of yellow striped paper to match the flowers and then added it to the card base with the flower panel popped up with foam.

 This flower card was made using an old SU stamp. Stamped on a white background and colored with Copics.  I cut out the center with a double stitched edge die and then popped the center rectangle up with craft foam.  The last card was die cut with a Spellbinder die.  I popped all the pieces out and then colored them individually with Copics...THEN put the puzzle back together! LOL!  VERY fiddly!  I stamped an old PTI sentiment on a piece of vellum and heat embossed it in red and wrapped it around the panel before attaching it to a card base.

I've had a lot of fun making all these birthday cards for my DIL....hopefully this will be enough to get her through the year.  It's also helped me get my mojo going again.  I've also managed to make a scrapbook page or two also....All this staying in leaves me with a lot of time on my hands! LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by and as always, I LOVE it when you leave me comments!
