My Sunny (Yellow) Valentine

One of the most popular trends right now is the color combination of gray and yellow. I know neither of these colors is normally associated with Valentine’s Day but I decided, why shouldn’t they be?!

Gray, Black, Yellow Valentine

I have the DCWV Lemon Flower Stack ( LOVE this paper!)  and chose a couple of complementary patterns to use on these cards. Cut panels from the black and gray sheets and then used scraps of one with the other, and finished off the panels with silver glittered ribbon.

Yellow Black Silver Valentine

For the focal point of the card, I used a G Studio $1 clear “LOVE” stamp (Michaels)  and Fresh Ink pigment ink in mango. Layered that on a scrap of the DCWV paper, and then on a scrap of silver glitter paper.

I stamped the swirl heart (from Inkadinkado’s Hearts collection #97637) and cut out. Added a couple of hearts punched from more silver glitter scraps.

I love Stickles and the patterns on this paper gave me an excuse to dot iridescent Stickles everywhere!
LOVE Valentines

By now, friends and family who receive cards from me understand they never know what they’re going to get. Sometimes very traditional colors; other times…..

First Card of 2012!

It’s been a slow creative start to the New Year although I have unboxed and installed my new Silhouette Cameo! Now I just need to learn how to use it! I have named her, and yes she is a her. Her name is CoCo.

Time and birthdays wait for no lazy crafter however,  so I have had a couple of birthday cards to make. I thought I took pictures of both but oops.  I did make them using the same papers: Basic Grey’s Little Black Dress collection.

The two patterned papers are the different sides of a double sided paper. The stars are punched from glittered cardstock scraps in my stash ( I am focused on using up my scraps this year) and the swirly thingys are leftovers from my sticker stash.

Inkadinkado Mini Stamp

I have a slight problem with clear $1 stamps. JoAnn’s, Michaels, and my soon to be closed ( waaah) local store Paper Zone, all carry them and let’s just say I’m an equal opportunity $1 stamp collector. This one is from Inkadinkado. I stamped the image on a scrap of paper from the card I forgot to photograph, and accented with glitter glue. The frame is from a pack of K and Co die cuts.

Quick Cards

"Oh mom, do you think you could make me a couple of Thank You cards?"
"Sure. When do you need them?"

You know the answer was tomorrow right? Just kidding...I mean the answer really was tomorrow but when you have a mom who makes cards it's really not that big of a deal. It's also OK if your child thinks it is :)

So he needed these for school which meant the school colors which I don't love. Red and yellow. Fine on their own and with other things. Hate them together. Sorry. I won't actually make him choose a college based on colors I like but the thought did occur to me.

Stamp: INKADINKADO...Paper: red cardstock and DCWV "Indian Summer" Stack
Another time sensitive card...a condolence card...but more my style:
DCWV "Natural" Stack; Floral paper, Magenta Silver Peel Offs, Chipboard Embellished w/ clear sentiment sticker
