Cards


Over the past couple of months crafting has had to take a backseat to life.  But, I've managed to squeeze in a card or two.....lol.  I've tried some new things, and some tried and true. 
I made this card for my sister.  Of course the inside says "get whale soon"!......lol.  Thanks to my friend, TJ, I had the perfect paper.

I decided to give acetate a try after looking at a youtube video.  I love the way this one turned out. Stayz-On is my "go to" ink pad.....lol.  At first I tried embossing the acetate...that was definitely a "NO" for me.  My card melted as soon as the heat hit it.  I'll try again another day.

This birdhouse was definitely out of my comfort zone!  I am finding out the more I do, the more I can do.  It may take a couple of tries and a full trash can, but eventually I get it.....lol.

This one was easy!  Me and my Cricut get along just fine.......lol.


I finally used the flowers that I had stuck in a bag, in a drawer.  You know the ones that I wouldn't throw away because I was going to use them one day......lol.  I know that I have had these tucked away for two or three years (if not longer)!


These cuts are the Scrappy Dew Get Well Soon set.  I was so excited to put a real tissue in the box....lol. 


Actually, this is an unfinished picture.  With the suggestion of my friend, Queen Pam, I put more hearts in the jar.  Still experimenting, I covered the jar with an acetate cut after decorating.  It had that "glass" look when it was all finished.  You can kind of see the shine in the picture.  I printed the letters and cut out the squares (rounded the corners) with my Cricut and then covered the letters with Stickles.  I had fun making this one.



I even had the opportunity to participate in a Tag Swap, hosted by Queen Pam over at SOC.  This was my first and I found it to be a challenge, but I enjoyed it.  For me, there is always that pressure when I am doing something for someone else.

Well, I'm off now to see what else I can come up with.  Happy scrapping/card making/crafting!!!!!
