Happy Halloween!

 I have been busy making Halloween cards and decided to post them all at once instead of bit by bit.  I had lots of fun making them all and will enjoy giving them out!  Next up... Christmas cards :))

A Few More Cards

 I have made a few cards lately.  Three of them are birthday cards and one is a housewarming card.  The weather has  been so warm and beautiful this summer that I have been neglecting crafting somewhat and spending more time outdoors in the daytime and then doing other things at night.  I am a bit behind in my Project Life as well but I will catch up when the weather is not quite as glorious :))

3x3 Cards

 These cards are all 3x3 tri-fold cards I made using my die from My Creative Time.  

The first group of four are all made using stamps from 
The Greeting FarmThey are a series of Alice In Wonderland inspired stamps and were just perfect for these little cards!

And the second picture is a 3x3 card as well and this time I just used a sentiment stamp for the front and added some pink ribbon as a closure.

I am loving this 3x3 die and I also have the co-ordinating envelope die but I haven't used it yet.  But I will in the future!!

Fortune Cookie Card

A quick card I made for a friend's birthday.  The stamp and die set are from Lawn Fawn!  It is such a cute set and I can see I will use it quite a bit in the future!

Two Cards

 A couple of simple cards I made last week.  The first one was for a friend who got a new dog.  I used a Paper Smooches stamp and for the background I just cut up strips of patterned paper and I like how it turned out!  The 2nd card is just some hexagon patterned paper with a few hexagon-shaped wood veneers from Studio Calico, I wanted a more masculine card and this seemed to work!

Statue of Liberty Card

I have a friend who is into all things New York so this is the card I made for him.  I used the building stamp from my Studio Calico kit and the arrow paper and the vellum paper were also from the kit.  And to finish it off, I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut a Statue of Liberty shape from POW glitter paper.  I didn't put the Happy Birthday on the front in case he wanted to display the card with some of his other NY paraphernalia.  I have since given him the card and he loved it!  Yay!

Confetti Card

This is a birthday I card I made borrowing an idea from KraftinKate on YouTube.  I used a vellum envelope and filled it with confetti I made using a couple of punches and patterned paper.  The tag I made with a Sizzix die and glued some of the heart confetti on it.  And the doily was a free gift with an on-line order.   Very feminine and pretty!

Happy Valentine's Day

The Valentine's Day card I made for my DH!  I tried to temper the girliness of it by using some grey and using a corrugated card base and I think it turned out pretty good :)  He says he likes it which is what matter most!

Two More Cards

 This flower card  was inspired by Emma at My Creative Time (scroll to bottom of post to see her version.)  It is on a corrugated cardboard card base that I whitewashed.  The flower dies are from Emma's shop!
And this very simple card was made for my friends that just adopted a second dog! They didn't adopt a bulldog but I didn't have a dog stamp that looked like their dog and I wanted to use the sentiment I made up to go with the stamp, ha ha!  The bulldog stamp is an Alice Palace stamp from Crafty Individuals.   My friend Sam did a card recently with an Alice Palace stamp and I loved it so much that I had to get a stamp from them as well!  I love the Alice Palace line and plan to get some more!
