More cards

Good Afternoon!

I've been working on using up some paper scraps.  I started over the weekend, using 6x6 and 8x8 one sheet wonders.  I had cut out pieces to make several cards and had finished glueing them together.  Not thinking about the finishing touches, I took pictures of the cards I made.

As I was putting the pictures on my computer, I realized that I hadn't embellished them like I usually do.  The differences between the two when you compare them is amazing, I think.

The top card was embellished with stickles and the birdbath card I added stickles and liquid pearls.

I also made the following cards today, roughly following the Mojo Monday sketch from this week...

Mojo Monday #477

Good Morning!

It's contest week over at Mojo Monday!  This sketch is close to the sketch over at Viva la Verve Sketches last month, so I used the same paper I used for that card.

My take on it...

Like most of the cards I make, I used a pocket for the inside...

One Sheet Wonders

Happy Saturday,

I pulled out the layout for the One Sheet Wonders I found on Joyfully Made Designs awhile ago.  I was down to mostly scraps from my favorite Heartfelt Creations paper Raindrops on Roses.  While I didn't cut a 8x8 or 6x6 piece of paper, I did use the layouts & ideas to use up a bunch of my scraps.

(A close up of two of the above cards)

While this is a great way to use up scraps, I really need to do this about halfway through the papers.  When I wait till almost every full page is used, I don't have enough to do background sheets.  I'm not a fan of plain backgrounds, but I think some of them worked out that way.

Have a great weekend!

Viva la Verve, November sketch 2

Good Morning again!

I also played along with Viva la Verve sketches today.  I really wasn't sure I would be happy with any cards made with this sketch, but I was very pleasantly surprised!  This sketch turned into a lot of fun, except when I finished the card and realized that I forgot the ribbon that was sitting on my table.  :)

Good Morning!

Since I'm fairly limited yet on what I can do, I played a lot in my craft room yesterday and today.  Yesterday I played along with Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Mojo Monday #476

Good Morning!

I finally made it out of bed, somewhat recovered from last week's surgery!  Of course one of the first things I did was make it into my craft room and play along with Mojo Monday

The sketch...
Since I'm not a fan of square cards, I changed this into a 5 x7 card...

Mojo Monday

Good Morning!

I'm finally getting around to posting my card for this week's Mojo Monday.  I also have 2 cards from last week's sketch also.  I didn't realize until this morning that I didn't post them.

Raindrops on Roses paper

Good Morning!

On Monday of this week, I posted 2 cards I made using Viva la Verve Sketches.  I made another two cards using the same sketch and the same paper.  lol  I really love Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses paper, the purple roses are so pretty, imo. 

The sketch I used...

Mojo Monday #473

Good Afternoon!

It's contest week over at Mojo Monday!

The sketch...
Over at the Stamp4Joy blog, they did a card with this sketch that I just loved!  It's not my normal type of card because I rarely used plain backgrounds, let along white ones.  Because of that, I decided to challenge myself and use a white background too.  I think it turned out ok, but it wasn't one of my favorites, so I'll probably use the sketch again.  But I would like to thank Rebecca for the inspiration, I loved her card!!

VlV, November, week 1

Good Morning!

Viva la Verve Sketches posted November's first week sketch on Friday.

I used my favorite Heartfelt Creations paper along with one of my favorite Verve stamp sets, Brighter Days, to make some thank you cards.  I have finally gotten all my Christmas cards done, addressed, stamped and ready to go along with all the birthday cards that need to go in the next two months.  I'm having surgery soon and I wanted to have as much ready as possible.  The one thing I didn't think of, was Thank You cards.  lol  I've had a lot of offers of help while I'm laid up, but I just didn't think of those cards until Sunday.  So I used the above sketch to make 2 different cards.  :)

and also...

Have a great week!
