Favorite Cards

Throughout the years, I have created some really cute cards, and am able to find inspiration nearly every place I go. The gerber daisy card I actually saw at my LSS and just fell in love with it as well as the daisy on the red paper. I never would've put red with green until I saw that card and knew I had been missing out on many great combos! Thanks for looking!!

Lasting Impressions Halloween Cards

I'm truly addicted to dry embossing, and my darling SIL bought these stencils and let me borrow them! She's the best at sharing. It was so easy, and I had thought of a different idea, but loved them just embossed on black. So, I ran with it! I took them down to the booth and the bat one was gone in two days and there's only one ghost left for someone! Thanks to Miss for helping me get my creativity flowing again!

Cricut Card for Halloween

I LOVE the "Stretch Your Imagination" cartridge and have been hesitant to use the jack-o-lanterns, because I wasn't sure if I could cut them small enough for a card. Well, I threw all caution to the wind, and decided to just "shut up and cut one". Man, have I been missing out on a cute character! I love using that cut for all my pumpkin needs, with blackout, so I thought I'd use just the normal cut. I had to use "Fabulous Finds", of course, and my new "Happy Halloween" stamp, but I think this is one cute Halloween card! I took them to the booth and they were gone in one day! Hooray for me! Thanks for looking!

Birthday Box

My Dad's birthday was a few weeks ago, and my mom asked me to make a box for her to put his gift in. Happily, I was ready to make one. I finally got my Design Studio hooked up, which I LOVE, and could make the perfect box. My dad loves black, white and red, so it seemed like a natural fit to do his box with those colors. I of course had to add chrome, but he loves that too! Thanks for looking.

Mountain Biking/Moab Box

My dad's work ordered another box from me. This time it was for a person who loves Mountain Biking and Moab. I had the idea right from the start, but admittedly, it was hard to put it all together. (I've learned, that's just how my mind works!) Overall, I figured out the design on my own, but needed Wade's help cutting the arch. I embossed all the red with my Cuttlebug "Distressed Stripes" folder and inked the edges. Wade also came up with the blue sky, which you can't really see in the pic, but it was bright blue, just how it is in Moab! Thanks for looking.
