Thank You

My hubby needed a thank you card for a male family member.  I used teresa collins 6x6 memorabilia paper pad, the green paper is from my scrap pile (I ran this through the sizzix square lattice embossing folder).  I trimmed the paper using a copper color marker.  The polka dots are part of a stamp.

I'm entering this card in 365 cards - day 360 anything goes.

Thanks for looking ~Maranda

Christmas Wishes

Here is a Christmas card that I made Grandma to insert some of the kids picture into. 

The designer paper is from Basic Grey Fruitcake collection, the stamps are from The Stamps of Life, I also used fine glitter on each light bulb.  The bow is recycled ribbon from a gift box. I hand drew the wire between the bulbs. 

Thanks for looking.  ~Maranda

Thank You

This is a card that I made for a teacher of my daughter's.  In my opinion, she went above and beyond doing something for my daughter and deserved a big Thank You.

This card is based on a sketch from 365 cards

I used a card base (white).   White paper -- for the backing of the other paper I used.  The paper pack I used for this card is by Cosmo Cricket - Mini Deck (6x6):  Cubierta Miniatura.  The strip down the middle reminded me of books on a book shelf, and this teacher is an English teacher (It fit perfect in my eyes).  I also used 4 small white brads in the corners.

Thanks for looking.

Birthday Girl

I created this card for a special birthday coming up.  I chose to use a challenge that was to use 2 different double sided papers and to use both sides of each paper.  I chose 2 papers from crate paper from the pretty party collection.  I used a sticker "Birthday Girl" from the same collection.  The flower is felt with a button from Jelly bean and the frame is wood veneer that I used a little old paper distressed ink on.  The girl and flowers (in the frame) is the same paper as the dots. The green flower/doily looking paper is the same paper as the green-yellowish paper with the lines.

Happy Birthday

All paper is Basic Grey Clippings.  I used the banner that is for the same set.  Happy Birthday is a stamp from See-Ds.   The strip along the bottom (diagonal stripes) is a sticker from the pack of Basic Grey Clippings.  I used a total of 12 staples (Can you find them all?  LOL).  I also used a burlap circle from Little Yellow Bicycle - Burlap shapes.

Have a happy day

All papers are from the citrus stack (DCWV).  I used a chipboard frame (that I painted), flowers (from my stash), rhinestones (from my stash), and  ribbon (from my stash).  The butterfly is artisan chipboard from pink paislee that can be customized with color (they come white with print).  Have a happy day is a stamp that I double stamped, once using Adirondack Lights Lemonade and then again using Memento Cantaloupe.
