Random Cards

I received a card kit in the mail a few years ago. I was digging in my cupboards looking for something else when this kit fell onto my head. Now I do not remember where they came from, perhaps it was just a freebie in the mail -- but I finally put them together! I kind of followed the photo but I definitely added some touches to a few of them.

This first one I did a major overhaul on. It was a Valentine's Card originally, not something I need in my card stash. It's my favorite of the set.

The papers are on where they should be but I added a ribbon to separate the polka dot and stripe papers and another ribbon piece tied off of the wording.

I used RUSTIC FLOWERS stamp set in Vineyard Berry and Barn Red for accents. I used my little label maker for the "FOR YOU" sentiment. Pewter brads were used as well.

This next card is done pretty much like the photo. I sponged on some Blush Ink around the edges. The Chipboard "h" was cardboard color so I went over it with some white paint slightly and then sponged Blush Ink on over it. I also used Blush Ink on the flower circles. I added the clear buttons to the flower centers.

This card was very basic. It came with the two tone cardstock base. I simply sanded it and did the rest as pictured. Not much creativity on my part!

The 4th card -- well here it is! It is exactly how the picture showed it. The base cardstock already had the colors on it in the triangle directions, it came with the phrase "I'm glad you're in my life" that is adhered with brads or staples. Oh I did pop dot the FRIEND circle off the card front! That was my addition I guess. :)

As you can see -- I've been busy creating, just not sharing with you as quickly as I'd like to! I think it's that whole sharing the computer thing with others in the household and sunny weather -- it takes time to snap the photo, upload it, edit it and then post it. Thanks for checking back in!

Happy Scrappin, Stampin or Scrampin!
