Card for Dad

Mom, Dad and Steve gave me the sweet treats cartridge for Christmas.  I love it!  Dad is in the hospital so I thought I'd make a quick card to take with me when I visit him today.  He likes pistachio ice cream so that's why I used the green.  I thought the brown looked like chocolate and nuts.  The cone I thought looked like a waffle cone (his favorite) I used DCWV paper, from the Crafty and Indian Summer packs.  The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper, those stamps have never been put away, I keep using them!  Love you Dad, feel better soon!

Whoo Hoo!!! I'm a winner!

Thank you ladies!  I"m thrilled!

Card for Beth

This is a card from a Basic Grey card class kit - Indian Summer.  Beth is a crafter so I wanted to send her a "fancy" card.  Sometimes the best way to do that is to use a kit.  This kit is great!  I changed hardly anything to make a beautiful birthday card for a loved sister-in-law.

Card for Larry

I love these carp on the Pagoda cartridge and when I found this "scaly" paper I thought I'd see what I could come up with.  Yea, it's a little out there but I like it!  The background paper is from DCWV and is a pool background, the carp are from a mat stack from My Mind's Eye.  I did another large carp inside the card because I loved it so much!  The asian symbol is Harmony which I also stamped on the face of the card.  It's good to stretch now and then.

Mini album for Hillary

Mary at cardztv demo'd a toliet paper roll album around Christmas time.  I thought it looked like fun so here is my version.  I used a paper pack from me and my big ideas that has a tropical feel.  The tags I cut with sweet treats.  It was really fun to make this, made me feel like a kid again!

Card for Zack

March is a busy month!  Here is a card for my nephew, he loves science so I used some old Club Scap paper with a science theme and I cut out the wavy card on the Wild Card cartridge.  I used both liners and did the wave icon twice and stacked the black on some gold to really have it pop.  Inside sentiment from the same club scrap collection.

Card for Kathleen

Simple card for my sister in law.  I used the left overs from my SEI mini-kit for January and Pink Stamper stamps for the sentiment.  The lace was punched with Martha Stewart punches.  It's girly, blingy and pink!  All things Kathleen loves!

Card for Gary

Here is a card for my brother Gary.  Gary is a great poker player so I thought the card theme would be fun for him.  I stamped the cards with some older Club Stamp stamps, cuttlebuged the diamond pattern on to the background and used the cricut stamped cartridge to cut out the letters.  I also glimmer misted the letters since I bought the bottle at CHA and hadn't used it yet.
