Just a quick post with a birthday card I did for a friend of mine. This isn't an original design, but one I copied from a friend. I did, however, make my own designer paper with one of the new Stampin' Up floral stamp sets and a piece of yellow DP from a floral Stampin' Up designer paper pack. I love the new Stampin' Up embossing folder too. On the inside of the card, I used two spellbinders dies and then I cut a couple of flowers out from my homemade dp to use as accents. I love the bright colors on this so thought the sentiment was a good match.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek.

Just a quick post to show you the card I did for my daughter-in-law, who's birthday is on May 5th. My attempt at a vintage card.
The gorgeous butterfly image on the left corner of the card is from Inkadinkado. The musical stamps are from Hero Arts Clings and the vintage lady stamp comes from a new set by Hampton Art called "Cling Vintage Ladies".
Hope you enjoy it and thanks for stopping in for a peek.

Inside of card:
Just a simple card for my Hubby for Valentine's Day. I just love this "Henry Hugging Heart" image from Whiff of Joy stamps. The little "You Have My Heart" sentiment is from a Studio G set and the inside sentiment is from a Clings set by Hero Arts called "Valentine Sayings".
Inside of card:
My youngest sister and I both enjoy dark chocolate, so every occasion is a reason to send some to each other. We are lucky here in Madison, WI, to have 3 of the countries top chocolatiers. Anyway, I'm always looking for stamps about chocolate and this darling stamp set, called "A Box of Love" is from MFT (My Favorite Stamps). The background papers are in a dark chocolate color. I had fun making this card. Thanks for peeking in and checking it out.
Inside of card:
One of my very good friends was a Valentine's baby. It's easy to tell because she's one of the sweetest people I know. This is her Valentine/Birthday card for 2011. I've also attached a photo of the inside of the card.

I was inspired to make these cards when I saw this post http://itsastampthing-vicki.blogspot.com/2010/11/penguin-gift-card-holder.html on Vicki Burdick's blog. I love all of Vicki's creations.
Every year I try to come up with something new for my gift card recipients. These were a lot of fun and I was pleased with how they turned out. Thanks so much for the inspiration Vicki!
Here are some of the final Xmas cards that I did and didn't get posted before year end. I first saw this really cute image on one of my favorite blogs (http://debby4000.blogspot.com/). Debby is an amazing card crafter and a real inspiration.
The image is Penny Black and I had to go on EBAY to find it, as it is an older stamp set. The second card was done for my daughter-in-law, who loves snow and winter. I think this image is perfect for a snow-lover.
I'm really loving the circle lacy nestabilities. They will be a favorite for my cards going forward. Please contact me if you want specific information about any other products used for these cards.
Thanks for stopping by.
