Pop Up Christmas

Hi everyone!  I recently joined a pop up card swap and wanted to share the cards I made with you.  These were great fun to make!  I love how it looks like the element is floating in air when you open it.

Anything Goes at Paper Ala Mode

Hi everyone!  The Paper Ala Mode challenge at the Outlawz this week is Anything Goes!  We are being sponsored by Crafts and Me.  I chose this wonderful image called My Time and created a birthday card with a little bit of a unique pop up fold.

Why don't you come join us and share what you've been working on?

I colored with Copic markers and used some stickles for the bath bubbles.  Here's the inside

Three Little Kittens

Hi everyone.  I know it's been too long since I posted anything.  I have been making cards, just haven't been sharing a lot of them because I've been waiting for the people they are going to to receive them.  The cards I'm sharing today were made for a shaped card swap that I joined.  I actually had some success with my scan n cut cutting the files to make these!  The top photo shows all three sans whiskers.

I finally found the perfect whiskers in an old push broom at work!  I think they turned out cute and then I noticed that the middle kitty has the pink part of his ear glued on wrong!  Oh well, I guess it gives him personality!

Water Coloring

Hey everyone.  Okay, I have to tell you right off the bat that I am not happy with my project today.  The Paper Ala Mode challenge this week is water coloring. Our sponsor is Bugaboo, and I picked out this cute Santa's Reindeer tag image.  

I water colored the background and added some little snowflakes and crystals.  I tied it off with a silver  tie.  I am not entirely happy with the whole thing, but it will work as a tag.  

If you have mad water coloring skills, come share your talents  with us.

Pet Sympathy Cards

Hi all!  Just wanted to share a couple of pet sympathy card I unfortunately needed to make.  My sister lost her dog and just a day later my daughter lost one of her cats.

This first one, I cut the large paw print out with my scan n cut.  The inside paw with the heart is a die that is actually a charm, but I cut the little hanger hole off.  I cut out several and stacked them for dimension.

I found the verse for the cat sympathy card online.  I really like it, and feel like it is so true.

Some thank you cards

Hi everyone!  I recently asked a group of people to make a card for someone who was ill if they had time and so many people came through for me!  I wanted to make each of them a thank you card so I came up with a design that was easy to mass produce.

Here's a close up of one

These were super fast and fun to do.

Fall Colors at Paper Ala Mode

Hi everyone.  This week's Paper Ala Mode challenge is the colors of Fall.  I adore Fall and certainly can't wait for it to arrive here!

We are being sponsored by two great companies - Eureka! Stamps and Digi Stamps 4 Joy.  Come play with us!

I printed out the pretty Anemone Corner from Digi Stamps 4 Joy three times and cut some of the flowers out and layered them for more dimension.  This was colored with colored pencils.

This card was made using a cute Pumpkin Raccoon image from Eureka! Stamps.  I colored this with Copic markers.
