Here’s a card I made recently. I used American Crafts heart patterned paper, a gray tag from a daily deal site that had a great price on them, and a paper doily from the Dollar Tree. I used Ranger alcohol ink to change the color from white to red. I also cut out a heart from a cardboard box and tied some embroidery thread around it.
What do you think?

I signed up at the CSI Project again this month to bring you projects with flowers. My blog is mainly scrapbooking, so those are the kinds of flowers that I have on hand.
Here I just simply embellished a Chinese takeout gift box by wrapping some ribbon around it and adding a flower from Michaels and 2 leaf pins from Maya Road. Very easy peasy!
Here’s a card I did with some Doodlebug flower stickers that I adhered with pop dots so they’d pop off the page and added some ribbon from American Crafts for their stems. I also used a Tattered Angels mist as the background.
Here’s another card I made very quickly. Each flower is made from ribbon and then put together into the shape of a heart. I bought this already in the heart shape on etsy from Little Red Cottage.
For more projects I’ve done using flowers, you can see my breast cancer awareness bra here and my digital photo frame here for starters. Come visit my blog for scrapbooking and paper crafting and some DIY painting posts thrown in once in a while.Filed under cards | Comment (0)
We were doing a feature over at Practical Scrappers on using corrugated material on cards and I came up with this one but didn’t turn it over in time so you readers are the first one to see it. I used American Crafts paper, a tag I got from Pick Your Plum daily deal site, a pin from Fancy Pants, ribbon from May Arts and a true love stamp from Fiskars. The ink is from Papertrey Ink and I love it. It’s called Fresh Snow. I stamped TRUE LOVE with the ink and also inked up the heart that I cut from a cardboard box (and then ripped off the outside portion of it to show the corrugated part).
What do you think? If you’d like to buy it, you can find it in my etsy shop here.Filed under cards, For Sale | Comment (1)
Here’s a card I sold recently. That pretty purple background is actually made from a Fiskars stamp that i stamped in purple (Staz On ink) onto white cardstock and then cut down to fit the card.
The polka dotted paper is from BoBunny’s Peacock Lane line. The stamp is from Hero Arts. Inside I stamped happy birthday, but it would also be nice as a card just to tell someone they’re special.Filed under cards | Comment (0)
Here’s another example of trying to use up my older Christmas stuff. The pretty metallic tree sticker is from Imaginisce. And on a side note, sooo hard to try to take a photo of a metallic sticker! ha ha
Yeah….so how many of you noticed the darn thing is crooked? I didn’t notice it until it was all finished and glued down, and there was no way to fix it!
But how about we forget that and notice how I distressed the edges ever so slightly….. see?

I’ve been trying to use up my older Christmas stuff, and for this card I used a BoBunny Christmas sticker. I like that it looks layered but really isn’t. I added a little extra to it by outlining it in green Stickles. Love my Stickles!

I had an assignment at Practical Scrappers of doing a Christmas project for last Saturday and this is what I came up with. I went with very simple, using scraps of things I already had and trying to use up what I have too.
That’s American Crafts Christmas paper that I used as the base, an OLD Dude Designs journaling card, then an American Crafts thicker metallic Christmas tree on top. The JOY is a really old Deja Views rub on.
And here’s another one:
This one actually uses packaging from Imaginisce products (maybe rubons…can’t remember) . I also used a metallic Christmas tree sticker from Imaginise (very hard to take picture of this!) and a sticker from BoBunny.

Today Practical Scrappers is showcasing Christmas cards from us designers. Here’s the card that I made:
I used Basic Grey paper (reindeer), a Dear Lizzy poinsettia sticker, and the NOEL is actually a glittered transparency from Fancy Pants. I used my edge distresser (Heidi Swapp) on the reindeer paper for the first time ever successfully! I don’t know why I had so much trouble getting the hang of this thing!
See the edges?
For some Christmas inspiration, check out all the cards from the other designers too right here.

Here’s a cute card I made for someone last week. I used a crow digital stamp from Scrappin Doodles (they provide free stamps every Friday).
(click to see larger)
I used a black patterned paper scrap for my background and a yellow leaf paper doily from the Dollar Tree store. He’s holding the little flag that I made by using a sewing straight pin with a yellow head and attaching the flag I wrote on with a glue dot. I also used Stickles on the lines of the pumpkins and the crow’s beak and feet to add a bit of sparkle.
Oh! I also glued on a couple googly eyes (with eyelashes!) just for fun. What do you think?
