For the Newlyweds

Good afternoon!

I made this pretty card at a monthly card group I joined.  The group is run by Sandy Carlson and she designed the cards, the group members stamped and put them together.  All the supplies are Stampin' Up.  I think the cards turned out really nicely.

This is the othr card we made.  Again, all supplies are from Stampin' Up.  I love the accents made on the ice cream with the white gel pen.

Have a great weekend.  from Martha

Thinking of You

Good evening everyone.  We have had awesome weather here so posts have been a little sparse. 

I saw a card similar to this on line--but I can't remember exactly where.  For my version, I embossed the white piece with my cuttle bug, punched the flowers with a Martha Stewart punch, and placed a piece of patterned paper from My Minds Eye behind the panel.  I used eyelets for the flower centers.  The sentiment is a rub on.  The gray piece of cardstock is from Club Scrap. 

I used the rest of the patterned paper to make this card.  Stamps and ink are from Papertrey Ink.  The punch is from EK Success and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  The ribbon is this cool stretchy stuff I found in my stash......

Have a great evening.  from Martha

Good evening everyone.  I made this card with my new Rosey Posey set from Papertrey Ink (dies too).  The large label dies are from Spellbinders I think.  The "hello" stamp is from Stampin' Up.  It was fun to stamp with the matching die cuts.

Have a great weekend.  from Martha

Birthday Wishes

Good morning everyone!  Todays card was made with Papertrey Ink stamps and dies.  I punched holes around the edge of the tag and hand stitched with twine.  Background papers are from Lilly Bee designs.  I distressed the whole thing with Tim Holtz distress ink.

This card was made with the same Papertrey stamps and dies.  I made the little flower out of pink gingham fabric.  The background paper was one my friend Grace got free from somewhere......

Have a great day.  from Martha

Bee Happy

Good morning everyone.  The honeycomb on today's card was stamped with the background stamps from Papertrey Ink's set Rosey Posey.  The letter set used to stamp the words is from Stampin' Up.  I made the bee with stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions.  I made the bigger part of the wings with gold vellum.  This was really fun to make.

I used the same honeycomb set on this card.  The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

Have a great day.  from Martha

Hello and Thanks

Good Evening everyone.  Today's card was made with a stamp set and matching dies from Papertrey Ink.  Simple and pretty.

On the second card, I used Papertrey Ink die and stamps again.  I added a Spellbinders scallop circle and made the scallop border with a punch.  I punched out little circles in the accent color and glued them around and along the scallops.  Yes, it was time consuming.......

Hello everyone.  Today I have a set of berry cards I made with my new Papertrey Ink stamps and dies.  The first card is just the larger berry stamp in green ink, then I filled in the berries and leaves with the "filler in" stamps and stamped the greeting right over the whole thing.  Also stamped the leaves on the background paper. 

I changed up the look with darker background paper on this one.  I cut the berry with the die and gave it some dimension with dimensional tape.  There's that skinny ribbon from Mickie again.  I love that stuff.  I slid a leaf diecut behind the panel and distressed with Tim Holtz ink.

This one just has a few different embellishments.

And here I used up some scraps and went around the edge of the card and panel with a black pen.

Have a great evening.  from Martha
