Honey Pop Cards

Here are some cards that I made using a couple of the Honey Pop sets from Inky Antics. These were real fun and easy to make.

Wedding Card

Well, after a little longer hiatus than I thought it would be, I'm back! The creative "mojo" is flowing and I have been playing (um, creating).

A co-worker of mine asked me if I could make her a card for an upcoming wedding, and I couldn't wait to ink up this LOTV image. The image is stamped on Neenah cardstock, and colored with Copics. The lacey border is a Punch Around The Page set by Martha Stewart. The "Mr. & Mrs." sentiment is from Stampendous which I mounted on a Spellbinders Fancy Tag die. I kept the embellishments to a minimum, just a few gems and some Stickles. Here is a close up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I should be posting on a more regular basis now, for at least until tax season starts in January.

Hugs to all,

Fun in the Sun!

The current challenge over on the High Hopes Blog, is "Fun in the Sun". This is about the only High Hopes image that I have that fits into that category, so I am going to enter it.

Mom's Birthday Card

Wonder if you noticed under the play date cards, that I did not have a card shown. Well, this is my card. My mom's birthday is tomorrow, July 20th, and I am giving it to her.

The card was totally cased from here. The embossing folder is from Stampin' Up. I believe it is called Manhattan Flower. The back ground papers were a digital download from the same site as the cased card.

I like to make cards that involve techniques other than just coloring images, and that is what caught my attention on this one.

Thanks for stopping to visit!

Pat's Card

My group of stamping friends and I got together on July 4th, and these are the cards that we made. Quite a range of ideas, huh!

Don't know when we will be getting together in August, as all of us but Pat are going to attend a stamping convention in Novi, Michigan the first weekend in August. I am hoping to meet my friend, Lillian, while we are there.

LOTV Challenge 105 - Pink and Blue

Here is the card that I created for the current Lili of the Valley - Challenge 105 "Pink and Blue." I got a few images colored last weekend, and funny how this one just happened to meet the requirements of the challenge. I was going for a vintage feel, I think I pulled it off.

The image was colored with copics, the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts, and the punches used are Martha Stewart and Stampin' Up. The sentiment is a Stampin' Up stamp also.

Thanks for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated!

Lili of the Valley Card

Here is a card that I am entering in the Lili of the Valley Challenge #104. The image is called "Emma Swing" and is of course from Lili of the Valley. The sentiment is also from LOTV. I colored the image with Copics, and chalked the sky and remaining grass area. The paper is from Prima, the flowers from WOC, the leaf swirl diecut is from Cheery Lynn Designs, and the lace is from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!
