I'm adding two cards today because my computer is going in for it's yearly check up & I don't know how long it will be there.
The floral card is a super easy Sympathy card. I cut out an oval & placed it in the center then stamped the background over that. Stamped the sentiment in the center & added a ribbon.
The green one was also an easy one to make. I put a navy strip of card stock accross the top & added the ribbon through the center. The image was stamped on vanilla card stock & attached to the strip. This card can also be used for a male birthday, just change the sentiment.
Thanks for looking. Have a Blessed weekend, Rita

The background stamp used is called Angel Poem. I thought it was perfect for this Angel stamp. The Angel is embossed in gold on glossy white card stock. The other colors are two shades of plum. This card could be used as a Sympathy or Note Card. Thanks for looking..........Rita

Note Card

Just a simple Note Card. I added silver brads to the bottom. This is another one of my favorite stamp sets. I have over 100 sets & more coming. I really need to dig out some older ones & re-introduce them to the ink pads. Thanks for looking.

Happy Birthday Brother

I made this card for my husband's brother. I used the Weathered Background stamp to make it look more like wood. The colors match better than they look in the scan.
Thanks for looking.

Last Entry This Week

This has to be one of my all time favorites. I just love the way it turned out. I haven't used my paper crimper in a long time & thought it was time to get it out again. The flower was colored with an Aqua Painter. The corner is turnd up & secured with a black aquare brad.
Thanks for looking & have a Blessed weekend. ~~Rita~~

Floral background stamped with green on white card stock. I cut an oval then attached it to the green card stock. The flowers were stamped on the piece that was left over & cut down to a smaller size.
Have a great weekend! Thanks for looking. ~~Rita~~

Thank You

Today's entry is a quick & easy Thank You Card. I like these because you can make them so quickly. The center piece is a floral background stamp cut & layered on the green & then attached to the actual card. The tag is layered & tied to the ribbon. These can be done in any color combination & for any occasion. Thanks for looking.

Kissing Flower

This is a new technique called Kissing. I thought I would give it a try with this flower. You ink up a background stamp & then "kiss" another stamp to it & stamp. This was a lot of fun to do. Maybe I should have done the butterfly too.
Thanks for looking~~~~~Rita

Thanks Shaker

I love these 2 colors together. Added micro beads to the shaker & layered the card on white. I don't know if you can see it, but there's a butterfly in the lower right corner. Thanks for looking~~~~~Rita~~

Gum Holder

This is a gift card that holds a pack of gum. You can stamp a sentiment on the inside. They make nice stocking stuffers or you can put it in an Easter basket. The possibilities are endless. This one is for any occasion ie; Birthday, Congratulations, Good Luck. You could probably substitute the gum for a small candy bar or bag of M&M's. Thanks for looking.....Rita

Over the Hill

The biggest thing in cardmaking right now is a product called Magic Mesh. It comes in different colors & is sticky on the back. I found that you could use Drywall tape the same way & it looks just like the more expensive Magic Mesh. Here I colored it with a caramel color & layered it on top under the stamped image. The coloring on the sailboat was done with an Aqua painter to give it a watercolor look. Thanks for looking. All comments are welcome (good or bad).

Plum Thank You

You can't get any easier than this. Stamp a background & cut a strip from that. Layer it on top of the second layer (color) of the card. The tag is another stamp that just happened to match the background. I layered that & added a tab that I made with a slot punch. Attached a brad & tied a ribbon through the tag tab. This card can also be used for other occasions by changing the saying. Thanks for looking...........Rita
