Card Share

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday weekend! We had a fantastic couple of days here in Alaska…gorgeous blue skies with white fluffy clouds and warm temperatures. We (meaning the hubby) grilled some yummy steaks and had a great weekend…until today. Woke up to overcast skies and rain. I am taking it as a sign that I need to get back into my craft room.

Before I get started on something new I thought I would show you some of the cards I created using the card kit from Simon Says Stamp for July. I have uploaded a couple of videos on my Youtube channel. You can check those out here and here.

I have a few other cards to share as well…I am going to start with my least favorite. I was just playing around with the stickers.

I thought I would see how quickly I could throw a card together…and it was fast. I am just not too impressed with the results, which is all me and not the products. The paper and stickers are adorable!

So then I thought…let's try making one with just stamps.

This is truly a one layer card. No bling, no embellishments, no dimension…simply stamped…and I really like it. I find I am happiest when I am able to do some stamping on the card. 

Next I created this embossed card which was the inspiration for the video.

That gold ink really made the card…here's a close up…

This one is probably my favorite…it was simple to make but is so pretty!

And lastly, I looked around at all the scraps on my desk…and trust me…there were a ton…and instead of cleaning up, I decided to create one more card.

I hope you enjoyed all the cards! Happy Crafting!


  1. I love the stamp set from SSS. One of my favorites!! All of your cards are great! I saw your cards featured on Pretty Pink Posh and those were amazing! New follower :)

    1. Thanks so much! I love Pretty Pink Posh! I have went a little crazy buying sequins a few months ago so I thought submitting those cards would be a great way to use some of my stash! Have a great day!
