I wanted to share with everybody some of the more recent card creations I have been working on! So many exciting things are coming (such as birthdays, graduation, mother's day, etc) so I decided to make a bunch of cards in advance! I had a card making night a few weeks ago. Megan and Meredith came over to play. We had a blast! We all learned new techniques and insights to cardmaking.
Meredith worked on her 12 cards for the March of Dimes. Megan had some b-day cards. I was all over the place, I had b-day cards, thank you cards, grad cards and more!
Here's what I created!
Inside I wrote the truth...
Random Birthday Card:
It was random...but I love it!
Meredith made this card...THIS IS NOT MINE! This is part of Meredith's collection she will be donating to the March of Dimes silent auction. She is doing a card for each month of the year. I think this is either April or May, but I could be wrong.
I loved it so much I had to take a picture of it. It was just so freaking awesome! I wish I had this creative ability!
This is what the inside looks like!
This card was for my supervising teacher, Joannie. It's a spring/school theme!
Then this is a collection of basic Thank You cards that I can use in the future! They are very simple, but I don't care. It is hard to make elaborate cards anymore. I like the simple cards too because it conveys the message in a direct way. I used this flower stamp for my mom's birthday card. I love this stamp very much. It was expensive; about 20 bucks, but I use it all of the time!!!!
I colored this one in with pencils. I gave a similar looking one to Dr. Meidl for writing such a nice letter of rec. to me.
I gave this one to Cheryl for all the help she gave during Holy Week.
And last but not least... my favorite...
These are alcoholic inks by Tim Holtz. I love them! I'm slowly becoming a Tim Holtz fan. I also bought some distress ink from him as well. I cannot wait to start playing with them:) I currently have 9 colors!!!
