Camera Punch Art

I needed a birthday card for a camera collector.  I found a similar card by demonstrator Julie Grabowska on Stampin' Connection (a resource for SU demonstrators.)

My card uses Marina Mist and Night of Navy card stock.

A piece of window sheet creates the look of the camera lens.
The envelope punch board was used to create the file folder look of the card.
The Square Lattice TIEF  gives a great textured look to the card.
The Circles Collection framelits were used to create the camera lens.
Blue grosgrain ribbon, a candy dot, and the banner punch provided the finishing details.

Flamingo Lingo Flip card

Today I am sharing a fun card!  I love the way this card turned out.  It was so much fun to create and experiment until I was happy with the result.

The front shows the first sentiment on the card.  This is from the Photopolymer set Another Thank You.  I love how clean and crisp it stamps.

When the card is open this side of the flip shows the second sentiment as well as the writing space. 

This photo shows the last panel, which has  been decorated with the flamingo and petite petals.  I also like how the grass filled in the blank space along the lower edge of the card.

When the card is folded, the banners are on the back.   The circle flip covers the cute sentiment on top when the card is folded up.
The designer patterned papers are retired, but I love how they complemented the card.

Another Thank You stamp set: #136835 Photopolymer
Flamingo Lingo stamp set:  #134303 wood, 134306 clear
Kinda Eclectic stamp set: #135347 wood, 135350 clear

Cute Cards for Kids

Today I am sharing a couple of cute cards made just for kids.
The first one is uses  the Fishy Friends stamp set.

 The Circles Framelits and the Large Polka Dots Textured Embossing Folder were used for card background.  The sentiment was stamped with the retired Curly Cute stamp set.  Love that font! 
The fish was stamped and heat embossed on watercolor paper and colored with ink refills and an Aqua Painter.

The second card is the cute little elephant from the retired Elebration stamp set.

It was colored with watercolor pencils and an Aqua Painter.  New accessories include the Large Polka Dots Textured Impressions embossing folder, Circles Framelits, and the Happy Birthday from the new Amazing Birthday stamp set.  Both cards were made with Bermuda Bay card stock.

Stop by tomorrow for  a cute flip card.

Holiday Home

This card was made with one of the new Photopolymer stamp sets from the new Holiday catalog which just became active on August 28th.  It is called Holiday Home, and it has 24 pieces to the set!  I made this card for someone who is moving into a new place next week.
   I used the square lattice embossing folder for the grass. The windows and roof were paper-pieced.  A small rhinestone dresses up the doorknob!
I'm anxious to try some other card ideas with this set, which has lots of stamping images for autumn, Halloween, Christmas, and other winter holidays.

Sharing Convention Swaps

I promised to share some of the swaps that I received when I attended convention.
The cards I selected to share today are each unique and beautifully crafted.

 Hot Diggity Dog stamp set was used by Colleen Leudeke to create this cute Pugs and Kisses card.

 The hearts and the use of the new hearts border punch add a nice touch.

"Thank you" by Susan Legits uses the Work of Art stamp set.  I love it in the Hello Honey color.

This baby card by Bonnie Shoup is so cute using the baby onesie and the dotted necktie. The images come from Baby, We've Grown  and Something for Baby stamp sets.
The choices of colors and the design elements used to make each one of these cards are just wonderful!

Thanks for visiting,
