Some Cards From the Weekend

Lately, I have really been working hard to fit in time for stamping. I really had gotten so far behind on my card making, with being so busy, and I was getting cRaNkY, if ya' know what I mean...so I decided it was time for some creativity!! LOL

Here are a few of the cards I made this past weekend...

 I used SU! Dusty Durango DP and CS for this card, along with the Chocolate Chip ribbon. The sentiment is a rub-on from SU!. I used dimensionals to raise it up and keep it in place.

 This was also made with the Dusty Durango DP and ink. I used a leaf die cut in my Big Shot and an old button. Then I inked the edges with Creamy Caramel (SU!) ink. It was such a quick card that I made about 10 of them!

 I wish this picture had come out better, because this card is so much cuter IRL! I took velum and ran it through my Big Shot using the Dots Embossing folder. Then I added the ribbon and brads and sentiment. The color is So Saffron and the sentiment is another rub-on (both from SU!).

 I saw this idea somewhere on Splitcoast Stampers and just had to try it! I cut my paper (both pieces), placed the smaller piece where I would eventually glue it on, and ran them through the Big Shot at the same time using the Manhattan Flowers EF. That way the flowers were impressed on both sheets of paper. I then matted both pieces of CS with white, tied on my ribbon, glued it on (exactly where it had been when I ran it through), and added the sentiment (another SU!) rub-on. It was a very quick and easy card, but really pretty, don't you think?

 These two pics are of the adorable purse card that I made at a SU! Party this weekend!! I love the DP, and it was so easy to make! We used the SU! Top Note die and Oval Frame die, as well as a few punches that I forget the name of (sorry!).

                                        I thought this would make such a cute gift-card holder!

 This was the other card that I made at the party. I used the paper crimper for the first time ever (can you believe it?), and I really like how it looks! I might have to invest in one of those...lol.

 These two cards are ones I "whipped up" for some friends in need of encouragement. They were really quick and easy, since there was no stamping involved (boo-hoo!). The DP is from the Amber Autumn Stack from DCWV, and the CS is SU! Always Artichoke. The leaf was cut using the same die that I used for the Thank You card, and the sentiments are rub-ons (I'm kind of on a rub-on kick, I guess).



I hope you were able to fit in some time for creativity this weekend! It really does help me to be more cheerful if I get to "play" every now and then...just ask my family! LOL
