"Coffee Cup Calendar"

I love this calendar! My kitchen looks like a coffee shop (it's decorated with a coffee cup theme), so that's what gave me this idea.

Paper is M.M.E. Stamp, ribbon, chipboard, liquid glass & prisma glitter are C.T.M.H. Corkboard sheet, brads & chalk ink (chestnut roan) are from H.L.

I have no idea where I got this coffee cup stencil from, but I love it! (Corkboard is glued to the back of the coffee cup to give it some stability, without making it heavy). There is also a magnet glued to the back, so that the calendar can be hung on a fridge.

This card was made using Graphic 45 paper, Chalk Ink (brown), pop-up dots & ribbon. Simple to make, but gorgeous.

"Cherry Thank You"

This card was made using Stampin' Up paper, Spellbinders die: Label 1, eyelets & ribbon. I wrote the "Thank You," since I didn't have a stamp I liked. I love cherries (don't know why), so I think this card turned out awesome! :)

"Fairy Couple"

This is an acrylic stamp from Close to my Heart. I have the whole fairy collection. :) You'll see them featured in my work from time to time. This card was made using watercolor pencils, aqua writer pen, liquid glass, prisma glitter & ribbon---all from C. T. M. H. This is a very simple card, but sweet.

Father's Day Cards

This first card was for my husband for Father's Day, and the second was for my dad. I tried to make both different (but not too girly).

I've recently joined a "Stampin' Up" club. We meet every other month and exchange cards that we've made, as well as make a new card as our project that day.

The paisley card is my "exchange" card, and the purse's card was our project. All the pieces are cut out and stamped using "Stampin' Up's" punches and stamps. This was a really neat card to make.
Father's Day Card

I made this card for my father-in-law----he LOVES fly fishing.

TOOLS/DIES: Spellbinder's Wizard & Fly Fishing die, Crop-o-dile.

INK: chalk (with liquid glass over it)

Paper: My Mind's Eye

Accessories: eyelets, hemp, pop-up dots

I think this card turned out so cute. This was an outdoor wedding on a ranch, so I had to come up with something that went along with the theme. So, I drew my own horseshoes, used some pink printed paper, and added silver brads & eyelets to the card. Simple but cute!
Obviously the wedding color was hot pink! (And the album matched perfectly). I love making albums, and I think this is one of my favorites.

This is a card I made for my brother for his birthday, using the "Bohemian card kit" from My Mind's Eye.

It's "not too girly," so I think he'll like it. :)
