Fun Cards

This card was stamped with a kitty from Michael's Recollections "Meow, Meow" set (it was on clearance for $1.49) and layered with some bright papers.  The red borders are from Doodlebug Designs Inc. "Fancy Frills" cardstock stickers. The alphabet stickers were purchased at Michael's.

Here is another attempt at trying to use up some of my alphabet stickers and I had these left over from a scrapbook pack from Disneyland.   The little car stickers are from Mrs. Grossman's.

I Miss You
Popcorn the Bear "Thanks a Bunch" stamp is colored with Spectrum Noir and layered on a little yellow gingham paper.  The sentiment was from a Hero Arts Alphabet stamp set (Fanciful Swirl Alphabet.) 

Miss You All The Time
This clock stamp was from Michael's Recollections "About Time" set (it was on clearance too!) The papers are all from My Mind's Eye's "Moments" 6 x 6 paper pad.  The sentiment was stamped using a Hero Arts alphabet stamp set (Fanciful Swirl Alphabet.) 

Thanks a Bunch!
This card was made using papers from My Mind's Eye's "Breeze" 6 x 6 paper pad. I had a bunch of scraps left over that were all the same size and this layout worked for me. The sentiment is from Popcorn the Bear's "Thanks a Bunch" set. 

You're Out Of This World!
This little card was made using Papertrey Ink's stamp set called "Boy Basics: Out of this World Stamp Set.  I layered with royal blue card stock and gave it a bit of dimension by using my crimper from Fiskars on the yellow and orange paper.

More Patchwork Quilt Cards

I know, I know, more patchwork quilt cards....but this is my "go to" idea whenever my scrap box gets out of control.   I had a color scheme in mind but needed two more squares of the coral pink color.....and my Spectrum Noir pens came to my rescue. I colored up a couple of white squares and it all worked well.  I had purchased a "Lizbeth" ball of thread (size 10) in the "Juicy Watermelon" color and had fun putting this one together, the colors just looked refreshing for me. The Lizbeth threads can be found here:

     This sentiment is from one of the Hero Arts Operations
     Write Home stamp sets. The papers are from Reminisce.
     Reminisce makes a faux "Declaration of Independence" 
     paper that I enjoy using on Patriotic cards. 

Here is a video for you:

This card is stitched with a multicolored spool of Omega thread purchased in Mexico, so sorry I do not know the color. But it is a vibrant yellow, red, royal blue, and green variegated blend.  On this card the thread coordinated perfectly with the Reminisce "Neighborhood Stripe" paper.

This card kind of ended up with Nautical-looking colors.
        The sentiment is from SRM stickers.

Thinking Of You Cards

                                   Yes, yes, more scraps were used up on this patchwork card.

Here I colored Popcorn the Bear's Father's Day Stamp with Spectrum Noir.  The papers are all from a  6 x 6 paper pad by My Mind's Eye's "On the Bright Side" set.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Alphabet Set (Fanciful Swirls Alphabet.)

On this card I made two Mickey Mouse shapes just by cutting out circles.  I had the Disney paper left over from a scrapbook set but did not have anything else that  matched, so I made my own embellishment.  The red balloon has a layer of Glossy Accents covering it.

This card is once again using up scraps. I cut little banner shapes, added faux stitching with my white pen, stamped clouds, and added a little bird to the line. The bird and the sentiment are from a Hero Arts Alphabet Stamp Set (Fanciful Swirls Alphabet.) 

Operation Write Home Midweek Throw Down Birthday Card

This little kitty stamp is from Michael's Recollections "Meow Meow" set and the papers are all from Claudine Hellmuth's  "Home Sweet Home" Collection.  The kitty is colored with Spectrum Noir markers that can be found at my favorite on-line craft store:

The sentiment is from the "Popcorn the Bear-Smile" rubber stamp set by Crafter's Companion/Stampworkz.
