Spring & Easter Greeting Cards

Posted by Amanda at Saturday, August 27, 2016 0 comments
Hello again!

I wanted to try my hand at making some quick cards with just some of the pretty paper I had laying around. I found my 6x6 big stack from Recollections with a 180 papers called Blossoms and Bliss. I only had time to make two, but I cant wait to have another try at it soon. I just added a layer of black card stock behind it and the card base was pink cardstock (Recollections also) - then stamped some simple flowers with a 'Thank You' on a piece of white cardstock 1 3/4 by 2 3/4, backed it in black. Inside I used some of the left over paper as a side border just for a touch of color. Simple and quick!

Party Girl Dress Card

Here is another card made from using a value card pack from Michaels. I just popped up one of the dresses, used some glitter paper and embossing powde,r and did the some kind of accent on the inside of the card. They always turn out cute and are very quick to make - that's why I have way too many note cards. Maybe some day I'll get them all made. Thanks for looking and I'd love to hear your comments!

Harry Potter Birthday Card

Posted by Amanda at Saturday, August 13, 2016 0 comments

I had to make a birthday card and I wanted a Harry Potter  theme but its very hard to find HP inspired paper anymore, so I kind of did my own thing! The brick paper I had in my stash and I used a Kraft cardstock. The Happy Birthday is from a stamp I've had for years, and the phone box is a Deep Red cling stamp;  the lampost was from Bo Bunny's set 'Gateways'. I cut the Muggle out from my Big Shot and the numbers and letters die is from Momenta. This card made a muggle very happy!

Recycled Mini-Album

Posted by Amanda at Saturday, August 06, 2016 0 comments
Woo hoo weekend!

I wanted to try my hand at an accordion album since I had seen so many of them on Pinterest. I decided to make one of my own using a little photo album I had bought on sale for $5 a while ago. I loved the cover so much but the inside was very cheaply made ... So I gutted the pages inside! I used black cardstock for my base pages and covered them with The Butterfly Garden paper from DCWV, and put a few small flip pages in it for some interaction. It was very quick to make and I think they would make nice gifts. I definitely want to try to make another one!

Let me know what you think!
