Thank you Cards

# 43 I just love this little girl stamp. I used a border punch to add a lacy look around her. The stamp was from the "Sara Kay" collection through Simon Says.

#42 I used a free download to get the girl and the moon. I used Martha Stewart's web border punch. Inside, I used the web corner punch, cut out a 1" circle and stamped both pieces. I cut a matching strip to the front and added along the inside edge.

# 40 I saw this idea somewhere on the Internet. They used a white card with colored stamped images. I like the look of the black and white on the orange. Very "Halloweeny"!

# 39
I used left over papers for the top and bottom patterned papers. I stamped the witch image on the card itself and then glued on another witch over the top---that way I got the hair without having to cut that part. I added a sentiment, which I matted in yet another scrap. Love that when it works out.

I threaded ribbon through a punched border and added a knot.


# 47 I stamped the jar on clear vellum with Staz-on ink. I stamped the cookies and added white trim.

# 46 I used a small stamp I thought would be cute and worked out from there.

# 41 I used a mouse stamp, colored and flocked the mice. They are soft to the touch, which adds a fun element to this card.

I used clear stamps for the teddy bear and gifts. I used a stamp for the tree. I cut the sentiment and curved it to fit around the scalloped punched circle. The glitter circle was punched from a gift bag.

I cut the deer and shadow from Cricut cartridge Joys of the Season. I also cut the oval with the same cartridge. I used a white gel pen for the sentiment.

Birthday Cards

# 45 I found the picture on the Internet and a friend shared some wrapping paper with me. I matted all with black. I think it's a cute birthday card for a boy.

# 44 I colored this girl with the veggie basket and used 3D dots to add to the card. Great for a fall birthday.

#33, 34, 35
Wrapping paper was used as a bkgd on the first two cards and as the middle strip on the third. On the first two cards I cut animals from the Cricut Cartridge "Wild Life". Love this background. I've got to find out where my friend gets her wrapping paper. I think these would make nice male birthday cards. For me, that's a hard one to come up with.


The bird card was using more of the wrapping paper I received from a friend. I cut out an extra bird and added it with foam tape. I added a ribbon and bow to finish the card.

#31 & #32
A friend gave me some left over wrapping paper. The "Let it Snow" paper was the perfect bkgd for the snowmen. The vertical snowmen I added with 3 D dots, the teddy bear and snowman I matted and added stickles.
