Spinner Card

This was done by putting 2 pennies together with foam pop dots & then attaching the flower to it & then inserting it into the slot. When the card is tilted the flower spins.
Thanks for looking & have a Blessed weekend.....Rita

Pocket Trading Card

I had to make trading cards for a swap that had a boy theme. I decided to do something different & made it a mini pocket card. It's hard to see from the scan but I dry embossed bugs & frogs on the turquoise & then added a frog eyelet. The ribbon matches better than the scan shows. I really had fun doing this one. Thanks for looking....Rita

One More Birthday

I don't know where I got the idea for this card but I thought it was a perfect layout for this stamp set. The saying in the middle says, birthdays are good for you, the more you have, the longer you live! The verticle greeting comes from another set & was just what I needed for the side. Thanks for looking & have a Blessed weekend, Rita

Birthday Pocket

I joined a swap for Pocket Cards and this is what I made for that swap. The saying goes on a tag that is inserted into the pocket. I cut the oval on my Sizzix Die Cut Machine and it's attached with gold brads. These fit in a regular card envelope.
Thanks for looking, Rita

Another Birthday

I'm running out of samples to post so I think I'm going to just post 1 a day for a while.
This card I did at my last workshop. The pink background was done with a glitter-embossing powder and heat set....Thanks for looking, Rita

The staples on this card have a balloon on them. The ribbon is white with blue dots.

This one has a little tag that pulls out with the word friend on it. That's faux stitching around the center. Thanks for looking.....Rita

It's hard to tell from the scan, but the background on this one says Get Well in several different ways.

I made both of these cards for a set I'm working on. I made 12 total & will be posting them all. Thanks for looking & have a Blessed Easter weekend.....Rita

Thinking of You

This card turned out a lot better than I expected. The center strip was run through a crimper. I actually made this one at home.

This one I did at my monthly workshop. I stamped the flowers & then cut them out & attached them to the card. I'm still not sure if I like that background paper. I like the colors, but the bottom looks like it was dropped in a mud puddle. Thanks for looking......Rita

Snowman & Santa Suit

These are just a couple of simple cards I made at 2 seperate workshops last winter. The Santa Suit has glitter on the collar, sleeves & around the bottom. A tiny brad holds the hanger.....Thanks for looking, Rita

Here I used the same stamp 2 different ways. One is just a normal card & the other one looks like you're looking through a window. I used organdy ribbon for the curtains.
Thanks for looking...Rita

Ladybugs & Butterflies

I made these 2 cards yesterday. Thinking of You was embossed in white. The Butterfly has a Paisley print that's hard to see from the scan. The base card is dark blue but looks black. Thanks for looking.....Rita

Butterflies & Flowers

I didn't post anything yesterday because we were having bad weather here. I was having trouble with my IP Thursday & didn't realize I had posted twice, so I guess that makes up for yesterday. Today's cards were done at my monthly workshop. The flower technique is done useing several ink colors & alcohol on a piece of gause on glossy card stock.
The Butterfly Card is just simple stamping. The flowers are on white card stock attached with a corner punch on the purple & then stuck to the card. The middle butterfly was stamped on white, colored & then cut out & attached to the card.....Thanks for looking & have a Blessed weekend, Rita

More Trading Cards

I love making these little cards. These are some I made for swaps I was in. The theme is always different, sometimes just a color combination. I have a book full of the ones I've recieved. It's kind of like a Baseball Card collection. Thanks for looking...Rita

More Workshop Cards

Here are 2 more cards I did at a workshop. The Butterfly was done useing the Baby Wipe technique. You put drops of several colors of ink on a baby wipe and then use that as your ink pad for your stamp. The other card is just simple stamping & layering. Thanks for looking, Rita

These 2 cards were made at a class I attended last fall. I'm not sure about the buttons, you might have to add extra postage when mailing. Both cards were very easy to make. Enjoy & thanks for looking.

I had so much fun with the marble technique I just had to do it again. I thought it might look good for a background with the Zebra. I was pleased with the way it turned out. I made the Thank You Friend card at one of my first workshops. The flowers are embossed & the writing lost something in the scan, it's darker in person. Thanks for looking......Rita
