Masculine Birthday

30 Apr

A fun Masculine Birthday card.  It is a big struggle to come up with cards for men but I like this one.  It is all I can do, to hold myself back from putting a bow on it! LOL!  The stamps I used are Stampin’ Up! – Birthday Bliss and the inside reads: You’re never too old to do Goofy Stuff from the Stampin’ Up! Smarty Pants set.  Hope you like it! 🙂

Water Bottle & Crystal Light Gift

30 Apr

This is the cutest idea!  I got it from this awesome blog: http://paperpleasing.typepad.com/my_weblog/stampin_up_sab_projects/

It is such a cute little gift idea, especially with Mothers Day around the corner!  LOVE IT!  I can’t imagine anyone not smiling when receiving a cute little gift like this! 🙂 So Fun!!!!!

Anniversary or Just Because…

30 Apr

Using the same layout I thought I would make some Anniversary Cards.  I like to try to use up a full sheet of paper all at once or I end up over run with scraps!  The stamp I used is from TPC Studio – Greetings. 🙂

Miss You or All Occasion Cards

30 Apr

For this card I embossed the bottom half of the background paper.  The color is Stampin’ Up! Baja Breeze which is one of my favorite colors!  A simple but elegant card.  Hope you like it! 🙂

Father’s Day Card

30 Apr

One of my biggest struggles in this card making racket is masculine cards.  Give me bows and flower and pink paper and I’m all set but man cards are so difficult for me!  I wanted to try to do something with out the usual ties and here’s my first attempt at it.  The stamp set I used was Penny Black’s Critter Party and the paper  is by The Paper Loft Morning Rain.  Hope you like it 🙂

Another Sympathy Card

30 Apr

This is another Sympathy card that I have done using the same layout but I have done it in blue and used a flower instead of a butterfly.  The inside reads: Wishing you Strength for today and Hope for tomorrow.  Again, I am very happy with how this turned out.  Hope you like it! 🙂

Weekend Card Making…

30 Apr

I love the weekends!  Saturday mornings in my craft room making cards, sipping coffee and relaxing.  It doesn’t take much to make me happy!  I was inspired to make this card from browsing this blog: http://paperpleasing.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/04/vintage-sympathy-butterflies.html  I used pink for the card base, embossed cream card stock for the background and again sponged a pink scrolled rectangle with a soft pink ink.  I used Sure Cuts Alot to cut out the butterflies and then embossed them.  I am very very pleased with how these turned out so I think I will do some in blue as well.  The inside reads:  Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have had a lot of interest in my cards so I am making several of each as people are buying them faster than I can make them!  I charge $2.00 each for them so if anyone would like any of the cards that I post on this blog, just send me an email at the address on the right of my page and I will be happy to make one for you!

Have a Fantastic Weekend!!!

Lisa 🙂
