Fifty's Chevy

Hello Friends!
Here is one of my favorite masculine cards.  I make a lot of this card for all the guys.  It is always a big hit.  Love it in this blue/green color scheme too.

I used markers to color and added lots of layers.

"Stylish" Cards

Hello Dreamers!
We are celebrating in Style today with some stylish birthday cards.  I used a "Celebrate in Style" sentiment on all the cards.  Embossing folders with distress inks made up the backgrounds.  I just love the dress form image and it is a fav in an embossing folder!  Really nice for a quick "stylish" card! 

The first card is made in a blue color scheme.

I used browns and reds on this card.  I used textured cs to emboss on.

Happy you visited today.  I have one more "Stylish" card coming up in a few days.  See you then!!

Owl-fully Cute Birthday Cards

Hello Everyone,
Back today with my Owl-fully cute birthday cards.  I have three to share today.  The first has a stamped background.  I stamp the large floral motif several times on the cardstock and then trimmed to size.  Owl in stamped on pink CS and die cut.


This is a stamped owl that I fussy cut and layered on pretty papers.

Oh so glad you stopped by today!!  See you again soon.

Using 3-D Stickers on Cards

Hello Dreamers!
Hope your weekend is going well.  Lots of rain in my little corner of the world.  I have a ton of bulbs to plant in my yard.  Hoping for a nice day tomorrow.  Stayed in doors today and did a bit of sewing.  I am making a tunic length blouse.  Maybe I will share that with you??  Interested in that?? 
Any way... I made several cards using all those 3-D stickers I have in my stash.  I know you have a bunch too...right??  I think they are a little hard to use.  You think when you are buying them that they are embellishments.  But, I find that I have to design a card around them.  So, here are a few I put together.

I also find that I don't trust that adhesive on the back.  I always add a good wet glue to the back. 

I will be back with a few more cards using my 3- D stickers later in the week.  See you soon.

Vintage Baby Carriage in Pink

Hello Crafty Friends!
Have a vintage baby card today!  I made this for family members who are expecting a little girl.  I also sent a crocheted afghan and sweater.  Nice and snuggely for baby.

I also added lots of decoration to the envelop.  The card went inside a package, so did not have to worry about it going through the mail.

Image was stamped with black archival ink on white cardstock.  I added lots of pretty pink papers, lace, ribbon, and two sizes of rhinestones.


So sweet!!  Hope you are having a lovely day!

Cowgirls - Vintage Style

Cowgirls on parade today!  I made several versions of these cowgirl cards.  I used two patterned cardstocks (which are sometimes hard to use).  I just went with the pattern on the cardstock and layered with other papers.  Really gives lots of movement without being crazy busy. 

I actually had a Howdy stamp--awesome!!

Super fun.  Will send to those who are cowgirls at heart.  Hope you are having a super day!!
