simple cards

This card is what I made today, my inspiration was to look outside and see the huge puddles in the yard and the leaky roof. I sure hope the flooding stops soon.

I used stickles and a glitter pen. The cute chipboard corner was from a rak, the gingham bow is from Martha Stewart. The green glitter ribbon is from a swap, the paper I got at Joann's and the image is a Unity stamp.

In the Stampers Anonymous group over on cafemom, the challenge this week is to make a one layer card. This is just plain white card stock, I embossed the edge, then stamped the images, the tree stamp I colored with markers then huffed on it before I stamped it. The bird and the hello are from dollar stamps from Joann's the tree is from a set I got at Hobby Lobby, it also comes with a deer and owls. Then I sprayed heavily with pink glimmer mist, unfortunately, I didn't lay anything heavy on it while it was drying and it bubbled up.

This card is owed to the weather too. I had this image from a rak colored for a while. I bought a jar of large flowers, this was the first time I ever used a big flower like this.

Someone rak'd me a long time ago with sheets of cardstock and matching envelopes, they are not cards, they don't open up, so I didn't know what to do with them. I got this dollar stamp at one of my shopping trips with Cass to Joann's and just loved it. So I decided to just make a little note card set. I used copics and glaze pens.

I had some blank cards that I got in the dollar bin at Target and stuck this cute image on the front, used my nesties to add some shape to the card.

No, I did not tie this bow, I suck at bows, this was the bow tied artound the blank cards. I recycled it

This another image that I was rak'd and had colored for a while, and another Target bin find.

yet another image from a rak that I have had colored for a while.

I have had these black blank 3x3 notecards with envelopes for a while and haven't done anything with them. I stamped them in white ink with a Stampin Up set, inside there are matching (to the image) sentiments in black ink on white paper. While the ink was still wet I sprinkled some glitter. The one with the flower pot has glimmer mist sprayed on it.

I have done some scrapbooking today too, will probably post those sometime this week.
