I think I have pretty much covered them all in this challenge. The only things I didn't use are fabric, lace or monochromatic color schemes. Hummm maybe next time I have a few minutes to craft I will have to throw those into the mix. The reason for all the cards lately is because my sister puts a box of my handmade cards on her desk at work and the co workers buy them as they need them. She told me her supply was getting low so I thought I had better take some time to replinish her stock. Not only do I love making them, it gives me a reason to keep my crafting room messy.
First up is a card I made using my stamps from Heart and Soul Rubber Stamps. If you haven't looked at her stamps lately be sure to check them out. She has added new stamps to her store. (I have them, I just haven't had time to play with them...That is next on the list). Anyway this is one of my favorite images. Yeah I know it's floral..What can I say. I colored it with copic markers, then used glimmer glaze just on the background. It really makes it shimmery and makes the flowers pop. I just couldn't get it to show properly in my picture.
Unscripted Sketches #128 Sketch and piggy back was to use fabric... I didn't have any that matched my colorscheme. However I did us the sketch. Instead of squares at the bottom I used 3 elements, half bow, button and ticket.
Crafty Creations 3, 2, 1
3 papers, 2 embellishments, 1 image (my 3rd paper is behind the ticket and button, it has teeny tiny yellow flowers)
Lil Red Wagon Just the ticket.
(I had a bunch of these tickets from the prizes that I didn't win at our family reunion raffle, so being a crafter I just couldn't throw them away. I turned them over and stamped on the back side and added some faux stitching. Love how it turned out.
I made this Mother's Day but never used it as I wasn't sure I liked it. The other day I was looking through my cards and decided it really is kind of pretty.
One Stitch At A Time Shaped card or using lots of shapes. Each layer in this card is a diamond shape except for the base layer.

I love making handmade flowers. They are a bit tedious but so worth the time and effort. Each petal is punched using a pear shaped punch. curled, pinched and tweezed to get the shape right. Each petal is placed separately using a thick, quick, clear-drying glue. I have made this card for a very special lady's birthday. I hope she likes it.

This card....well let's just say it was tedious and quilling is not my bag. Our local craft store (Archivers) was having a make and take day to show how to incorporate quilling and stamping in cardmaking. My 6 yr old granddaughter was all gungho on the quilling so I took her. Her card turned out beautifully.... mine...not so much. I can't remember the stamps we used for the branches and dots, but the sentiment I added at home as I didn't want to use their Thank you stamp. My stamp is from the $1 bin at Michaels. It is a Kolette Hall stamp. I masked off the flower part of the stamp.
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge You choose...and be sure to stamp. They also suggested you try something different... I did quilling...Probably not again:)
