A Couple of Cards

Here are a couple of cards that I made this week. I have to tell you though that my scrap room is such a mess that I can't find anything and it was very frustrating trying to make these cards. Therefore, I have been working to clean it up and rearrange it. I hope to make a big dent in it this weekend and will try to post some before and after pictures of it.

Here are the cards. This first one is made from some Kaisercraft paper that I have had sitting on my table for quite some time trying to figure out what to do with it. I made the flower on this card from a tutorial that Karen posted on the Helmar Blog. I sprayed the paper with bubblegum glimmermist before I punched out the flowers. I also sprayed the white daisy trim that I had with the glimmermist. I like the way the card turned out.

This second card was made from the May card kit that I got from Treasured Scrapbooking. It is made with the October Afternoon papers that I am just in love with. You can also see that I used some more of my crinkled ribbon on this card.

Crinkled Ribbon

A few weeks ago my friend Eva had a post on her blog about crinkled ribbon so I just had to give it a try. Here is the ribbon that I did...

I made a card today using the ribbon along with a variation of a card that Eva designed for the May card kit over at Treasured Scrapbooking. The card that she made was round, but basically the same idea. Here is my card...

I think I need a little more practice with my bows with the crinkled ribbon because I think that by pulling too hard it straightened out the ribbon some, but I still like the effects of it. I'm sure you will be seeing more cards with this ribbon on them.

Dads Day Card

Last Sunday I went with a friend over to the Red Bee to go scrapping and they have a thing on Sunday afternoons where they make a card. It was a card that I wasn't all that crazy about but the guy that was putting it on asked us if we would be interested in doing the Dads Day card, so we said ok. Here it is...

I hope to get a few other cards done today and be back later to post.

Birthday Cards

Well it took me a little longer to get these pictures taken and posted, but I finally got them. Hopefully I can get some more cards made soon as I would like to keep a stash on-hand so that I have them when I need them.

Mother's Day Cards

I made a couple of cards this year for Mother's Day. One of the girls that I work with asked me if I could make a Mother's Day card for her in pink and green, so this is what I came up with.

Then I made this card for my mom, which she seemed to like a lot. I don't think that it would really matter what it looked like, just the fact that I made it for her.

We have been doing A Card a Day in the Month of May over at SC2C and these were a couple of the samples that I have used. I was up late last night making a few cards for the same girl at work and will post those tomorrow when I can get the pictures of them.

I still need to take pictures of the layouts that I did over NSD to post and I am going scrapping this weekend and will hopefully have a few more pages done.

Have a good evening and I will try not to take so long to come back and post more pictures.
