Black and White Card….and a Giveaway

Just a quick post tonight….I am in a couple of card swaps and this is my card for one of them.




Now onto the giveaway…my anniversary is coming up on Tuesday and I figured it was a good reason to do a giveaway.  All you have to do is leave a comment here and a way to get a hold of you.  I will pick the winner Tuesday night. 

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Black and White Card

Today I spent some time cleaning up my craft area.  I found some old cricut cuts and other shapes that were lying on my desk.  I thought I would take some of them with my scraps and see what I could do with them.  Here's a simple card I made.  It's just black and white.




I didn't use a sentiment on purpose.  Sometimes I don't know what I want to use the card for so it's nice to have some blank cards to add a sentiment when needed!

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Simple 3×3 Cards

I needed some quick 3×3 cards to have on hand.  My daughter took my last bunch of them for her thank you gifts for her coaches.  So here is a couple of simple cards we made.





Until next time…have fun creating!


Sympathy Card – Shimmery White Pansy

Here is another card using the Shimmery Whitecardstock.  This idea came from Dawn Olchefske.  You can find her card and the video tutorial that demonstrates how to make the pansies HERE.  When you watch her video tutorial you will be surprised to see just how easy it is to create these beautiful pansies.




To make these pansies you only need the Butterfly Punch, some Elegant Eggplant and So Saffron re-inkers, Shimmery Whitecardstock and lots of water.  The sentiment is from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.  I have also embossed the Top Note Die using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.
