Using some of my new sassafras flower die cuts! Stacked some flower and added on layer of a stamped circle to match the background paper. Ran core'dinations paper through my big shot with circle embossing folder and sanded paper. Added a strip of sassafras paper over background. Added sentiment rub on (american crafts).
In honor of world card making day on Oct 3rd. I decided to make five different cards for each day of the count down. I am posting them all today since I will not be around much this week! I was off work today and decided to sit down and have some fun. The above card is very basic. I stamped the background by impressions obsessions with white ink. Then stamped the flourish stamp ( magenta) and sentiment (endless creations). Added a little ribbon and then added the colorbok forest friends chip board piece with foam dot.

I feel like I really struggle with "boy" birthday cards. The other day I was out walking Brigg's and saw a group of younger guys and they all had shirts with lots of different patterns and flourish. So I decided to base a card off of those shirts. I am actually super happy with my grunge cards! Perfect for the guys 10-25! Background stamp invoke rubber stamps, flourish and cake magenta.

I needed to make a thank you card for a recent dinner invitation, but I also saw that moxie fab world had a little housewares challenge. So the card was made for both purposes, love when that happens. Flatware stamp is all night media, background stamp is hero arts, scallops are purple onion and sentiment is papertrey ink.

OK so I have been on a Christmas card kick. I actually have my Christmas cards already done! My actual card is not posted on my blog, I did not want anyone to see a sneak peak! I have tons of Christmas stamps, I actually think I might be addicted to buying them. I think I need to put them away and work on some other holiday. So I think this is last of the Christmas cards or maybe for a little while! Background is stamped with light pink ink. I used a stampin up snowflake wheel. The trees are from Impression Obsession, love this stamp. I stamped on hound's tooth pink paper. Both pattern papers from making memories.
This card is actually based on a card that I saw in the new issue of papercrafts holiday cards. I actually used this snowflake flourish on my sisters cards last year. All stamps are from inkadinkado. Since you can used glitter on cards for hero's ( you do not want the service people to have glitter on their uniforms!) I added some gems, Christmas cards always need some bling.
Another grouping of cards that I made for our service men/women. It was based on a Thank you card that I made a couple of weeks ago. I liked the green and kraft paper combo. So I decided to make some Christmas cards in the same combo. Background stamp camp with versa magic white. Snow flake and circle stamp from inkadinkado. Sentiment from Penny Black.

I bought this card pattern paper on all of these cards from the target dollar section! I LOVE, LOVE these papers. They are in 4 x 6 format. They are just too cute. Little skull stamp is from the imagence. The witch, pumpkins, sentiments and bird are all from a Halloween set from making memories. More Cards for troops on Sunday, I have been busy! Makes me feel good to send a big box out, especially since the holidays are coming up!
I bought the recent issue of Papercrafts Holiday Cards & More Vol 4. Oh my is it full of great ideas and sweet cards. Lots of pink and green cards. So here are a couple of my cards based on their inspiration. Quick and easy cards, for me to make for our troops. If you are a card maker, please make some cards for this organization. Especially for the holidays. So all the service men and women can send cards home to their loved ones!!!
