My Card Collection

Good morning blog friends.  I have finally gotten around to taking photos of my cards that I have made to date. I hope you enjoy them and I hope it gives you the desire to learn to do this yourself.  These cards use just a few of the many techniques that I like to use.  I hope you enjoy your tour.  Please let me know what you think and if you would be interested in learning to make cards.  I can introduce you to the many tools, stamps, papers, embellishments, etc  used and I can get anything you want for you.  It is truly one of the best investments I have ever made.  Helps keep me sane.  Remember, these are just a very few of the things that are possible in paper crafting.  Also, all of these techniques etc work great with scrapbooking.

Here are some simple Whiff of Joy cards I have made.  I have used WOJ rubber stamps, momento tuxedo black ink pad,  copic markers, embossing folders, ribbon, pop dots, nestabilites cutting dies, Stampin' Up cardstock,  and designer paper.  There were made a while back so I can't remember the exact papers, stamps, and colors used.

You can click on each image for a better view.

This next card is done with a rose rubber stamp that has been stamped several time and the various layer colored,  cut, and popped up on top of each other to give demension.  Again, I don't remember the exact stamp or paper used but it would work with most any flower stamp.  I have also used a sentiment that has been attached with a paper clip for interest.  I have also used Spellbinders Nestabilities cutting dies and ribbon.

Here is another simple Mother's Day card using cardstock, a digital stamp, copic markers, Stampin' Up window punch, classic circle nestabilities, scalloped circle nestabilities,classic oval nestabilites, circle punch from Stampin' Up, paper from Michael's, cardstock from Stampin' UP,  half pearls that I colored with copic markers to match the flower, and ribbon.

This is a cocoa pocket card that is great to give in the winter time.  The inside holds a packet of hot cocoa mix and you could add a candy cane also. For this card I have used Stampin" Up cardstock, stamps, and stamp pad.  The snowflakes were stamped with white Stampin' Up ink to make them pop.  This is a wonderful card to make if you want to give small gifts to work buddies. 

For my next card I am showing a card that was given to me by a friend.  She has used all Stampin' Up products.  Under the picture of the deer is a folded envelop that was created using a die cut.  This is a fun card.

Christmas is always a fun time to make cards to send to family and friends.  I have a collection of Christmas cards that are fun and simple to make.  I have used various techniques such as stamping, heat embossing,  dry embossing with folders, and using nextabilities and punches for the shapes.

Here is a simple Thank You card I have made.  Again, I have used cardstock,stamps,  nestabilities, and embossing folders.

The last card I have today is a double fold card.  I have created a belly-band to go around the card to add interest.  I have also chosen to use Prisma flowers on the belly-band.  For the center of the flower I have covered a button brad with fabric.  I have also used stick-on half pearls for another embellishment.  It takes an 8 1/2" by 11" sheet of cardstock to make the card.  Just a few simple folds and you have it.  There are two pockets to put something in.  You could use a tag with a message, a gift card, or most anything that will fit.  I have used one of my Sarah Kay stamps with a ribbon tied to it for easy removal.  These make great gifts.  I love the way it turned out.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing these cards today.  I am working on others that I will post later.  I would like to teach these techniques and coloring for anyone who is interested in learning.

Have a good day.
