Happy Birthday in layers

Another swap card and my last for this morning. It is entered in the Simple Doodles challenge to use some layers. I have my base card, a layer of print paper, next a layer of velum, my stamped images with sequins and pearls for more layers. Some of them I use pop dots on to add more dimension. This is all for now, Thanks for looking, Janet

Yellow with diamonds

Another swap card and my entry in the Daring Card Makers challenge to use some diamonds. I bought the crystals at JoAnn's, the embossed background is from a swap on the Just Cards group. I used part of an old card for the central image and emblished it with some glitter glue and the crystals. The ribbon makes the final touch of yellow. Thanks for stopping by, Janet

Pretty in Pink

Another card for a swap and my entry in the Stamp Something challenge to use pink. I used three different pinks and embossed them with my cuttlebug embossing folders. Did a little sanding on the one so the dots show up better. The flower image is from an old card I am recycling. Hope you all have a wonderful day, Janet


Morning everyone, I was busy last night and got a few new cards made. This is for a swap on one of my groups and an entry in the Little Paper Shop color challenge. I used the required colors of Kraft, Chocolate, & Yellow. Papers are from JoAnn's, I bought the butterfly at Tues. Mornings and the brad at JoAnn's. Can't remember where I got the ribbon probably Micheal's as I buy a lot of ribbon from there. The thread for the string embroidery is also from JoAnn's. Hope you like my card, Janet

Happy Birthday

My final card in white, orange, green and purple. I made this one a Birthday card and used the Card Positioning Systems challenge sketch. All papers and the gems are from JoAnn's, the flowers are from Wal Mart, the verse is from Micheal's. As you can see my three cards are quite different even though I used the same four colors for each of the three cards. I just used them in different ways. I hope you enjoy my cards tonight. I am really glad to have the time to get back to making my cards. Thanks for stopping by, Janet

With Sympathy

I made this card for my Uncle and cousins. My Aunt passed away a little over a week ago and I wanted a special card for them. I have entered it into the Stamping Sisters in Christ Sunday challenge which is to mount up part of your card image. The Bible and flowers are from a Inkadinkado stamp set I recently purchased at JoAnn's. I stamped the image on white cardstock and then heat embossed itin black, I then cut the image out and taped it to my embossed cardstock that I had received in a swap on the Just Cards group. I attached this to my pick base card. I stamped my image again and heat embossed it using burgandy embossing powder, I colored the flowers with my marking pens and cut out the flower portion of the image. I then used pop dots to put it onto the first image. I stamped my verse that is from The Angel Company and heat embossed it with silver, cut it out with curved edges and pop dotted it onto the front of my card. Hope you like my work, Janet

Thank You

This is another card done in white, orange, green and purple for my swap group's color challenge. In this card I used the sketch from the Card Pattern's challenge. The papers are all from JoAnn's, I used my cuttlebug embossing folder for the white piece of cardstock to give it some dimension, cut an oval with my nestibilities to stamp Thank You on and added some orange ribbon for the final detail. The oval is put on with mounting tape to add more dimension to the card. Thanks for stopping by, Janet

Thinking of you, birthday card

This card is for a swap on one of my groups and is for two different challenges. # 1 is the Just Christmas and Birthdays sketch challenge and #2 is for Stamp Something's doodle challenge.
I had to use white, orange, purple and green for my swap challenge, The papers are from JoAnn's, I used one of my cuttlebug embossing folders a gel pen for the doodles and stamps from Micheals. Have a great day, Janet

With Deepest Sympathy

I made this card today for my cousin who lost her husband this last weekend. He had been sick for quite some time by his death was a shock to the family. I used the sketch from Unscripted sketchs to make the card. The imaage is from InkADinkADo, I heat embossed it in black and use colored pens for the added color. The black circles for the top are cut with two of my punches fastened to a piece of cardstock and then stamped with a verse from a Micheal's stamp. I embossed it with antique yellow. Ribbon, and a black mat were added for a finished touch. Thanks for looking, Janet
