Time to Make More Cards

I’m trying to make up for lost time 🙂  Here’s a design I CASED from The Night Stamper.  Love her work. I sold a lot of cards at my last craft show so it’s time to restock, plus the show I’m doing in 2 weeks will want a lot of cards. Last year at that show I sold about 30 or 40 cards.  It’s at my parents retirement community and they like to send cards to each other, especially “get well soon”!

Wisteria Wonder

I needed to make a few special cards. I haven’t used this embossing folder in a long time, it looks great with this stamp set.  This design is so versatile. You can put any sentiment on this and it works for all of them!  I will be doing this in an upcoming class so check out my workshops if you want to do it. It’s the fall and classes fill up quick now a days!


Card Components:

Paper:  Wisteria Wonder card stock

Stamp sets: Love & Sympathy, any other sentiment you like

Accessories: Wisteria Wonder ribbon, Elegant Lines embossing folder, Dazzling Diamonds

A Change of Pace

Took a break from Christmas stuff for a while. I saw this card on Wickedly Wonderful Creations a few weeks ago. I borrowed the stamp set from one of my team members (still haven’t given it back to her, LOL), and made my version of the card. Not much different than the original, why mess with perfection!

Main Card Components:

Stamp Set: Field Flowers

Paper: Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder, Wisteria Wonder DSP

Simple Yet Elegant

Something simple yet elegant. I’ve been eyeing this set for a while, it’s Nature’s Pace. I just love the sketch look. I don’t have many sets like this so I thought I needed to add it to my collection.  The card stock is Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder. Off to make some Thanksgiving cards today!

Get Well

I’m doing a craft show at a retirement community this weekend and need to have some Get Well Soon & With Sympathy cards for the clientele. This card looks so much better in person. There’s some glitter on this that you really can’t see it in this picture. But it really is a beautiful card.

With Sympathy Card

Unfortunately, I needed a couple of With Sympathy cards.  I discovered a great new stamper from whom I shamelessly cased this card from.  Linda’s Stampin Loft.  I changed it slightly, but it’s so obvious it was a CASE.  She does beautiful work! It was great to pull out a couple of old sets I haven’t used for a while.

Card Components:

Card Stock: Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade

Stamp Sets: Vintage Vogue, Sincere Salutation

Accessories: 1/8″ Night of Navy, White Embossing Powder, Night of Navy Brads, pearls, Embosslit- Beautiful Wings

I was showing my class the other night how you can alter a card slightly and give it a whole new use!  I actually did this for one of my Christmas cards a few years ago. I just changed the verse to a “With Sympathy” stamp. This was a fast and easy card to do. We will be doing this on Friday night.  I still have room in the class so contact me if you want to join us!

Card Stock: Whisper White, Always Artichoke

Stamp Sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Lovely As A Tree

Ink: Always Artichoke
