More Cards.....

Hi everybody,

I wanted to share a few more cards that I have made over the last few weeks. 

Isn't she cute???  This is a stamp from Stamping Bellas.  When I saw it, I knew I had to buy it to make a card for my friend Crystal.  This suits her perfectly!  She has everything, is into everything, etc.  I colored her with copics. 

I made this card for someone that needed some cheering up so I was trying to send her some sunshine.  I used this Tim Holtz stencil and 3 colors of his distress ink.  I just sponged it over the stencil.  The hello is cut out with black vinyl.  I finished it off with a few senquins.  She said when she got it all the sequins had fallen off except one.  How embarrassing!  What do you use to adhere sequins and especially if in the mail?  I used Tombow Mono Glue.  

I made this card for someone whose brother passed away and she is still having a very hard time with this so I just wanted to send her a card hug.  Isn't this embossing folder awesome?  It is one of the new WeRMemory Keepers Next Level Embossing Folders.  Two come in a pack.  This one is called Woven.  I used a poppy die called Small Iceland Poppy from PoppyStamps.  There is also a Large Iceland Poppy die as well.  The word hugs is a die from Lawn Fawn and I cut it out of fun foam.  I used the double sided adhesive paper so that when I cut it out, I could just peel off the backing and stick it on my card.  I thought it would hold better this way on that embossed background and in going through the mail.  

I made this card for someone who had a bad fall and broke her elbow.  Ouch!  Luckily it was her left one and she is right handed but still... I used an embossing folder with butterflies on it because she loves butterflies and I used the Bokeh technique.   Have you tried this?  I like the result but I couldn't get my pencil eraser to put the ink on the card stock very well.  I watched a video from Splitcoaststampers to learn this technique. 

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you liked my cards.
