Four new cards...

Hi, everyone! Finally got a chance to post this. i've been making lots of cards lately, for fun and also for several projects including 2 orders and a couple gifts. Here's a few examples of some recent stuff i've done...

This one was a lot of fun to make. i did the background by inking wax paper with Ranger Distress Ink and then misting it with water. i then laid the cardstock into the ink and played iwith it until i liked the look, starting with the lightest color ink and then working my way darker. If you can't tell, there's dimensional glaze on the bees to make them stand out.

Ingredients: CS - stash, Colorbok; stamps - Inkadinkado's "Bee" and HB sentiment; ink - Ranger Distress and Archival; Prismacolor pencils; pop-dots; dimensional glaze.

i made a few like this. i stamped and inked various papers and CS then punched out squares and arranged them. i used so many stamps for this that it would take forever to list them all. If you want to know specifics, just ask.

This was made using some PP i got from Dana over Kismet, Art, Life - i'm not sure who makes it, but it's just gorgeous. i was saving this paper, but lately i've realized the need to use up some of what i have been stashing. i pierced and then hand-stitched this (something i rarely do because of the time involved) - i don't have a sewing machine, so... Yay for Spring cards!

Ingredients: CS - stash, Bazzill; PP - ?; stamps - Garden Words; ink - Ranger Distress; brads - MM; ribbon - A.C. Moore?; pop-dots.

This one's my favorite. i think i saw this layout in an issue of Paper Crafts, but i can't be sure.

Ingredients: CS - stash; PP - K and Company; stamps - Rhonna Farrer's Swirls V:1, alphabet - ?, "birthday" from Anna Griffin sentiment set; ink - Versamagic, Ranger Archival; brads- MM; metal label-holder - ?; flowers - Wal-mart; photo corners - MM.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
