Love this card! I made this for a co-worker. The stamps are Stamps for Life. And the papers are from the DCVW Black Currant stack. You may not be able to tell but the background is foiled. I like the idea of juxtaposing this super fancy paper with the cutesy girlie owl.

The tag is just a manilla tag. Then I used Distressed Ink Chipped sapphire to ink it. Then I used the Autumn Leave stamp #3526, 5 petal flower and stamped in Momento Danube Blue. I used some brown ribbon for the handle. The "button" is a Fancy Pants Happy Together fabric covered brad. And the butterfly is K&Company, from the Tim Coffey Cottage Garden Cool.
As always.....Thanks for Lookin'!

Inside of card
Just made this for one of my friends, Dave Cyrus. The background on the front of the card is K&Company. Every time that I see this paper it reminds me of vintage wallpaper. The ephemera is also K&Company from the "Cut N Paste Ephemera". The cherry print paper is from Jenni Bowlin Studios. And guess what? I didn't stamp at all on this one. How did that happen? Of course, I did use Distress Ink Wild Honey to distress the edges of the front of the card and edges of the cardstock on the inside. I like the way that this turned out. I usually make such girlie cards, lots of flowers, butterflies and swirls. So I had to really think about making something masculine.
Hubby and I are making Hungarian dinner for Dave tonight. Go to kencraig.wordpress.com to see the photos of our dinner later tonight. We are making Chicken Paprikash with Egg Noodles, Cucumber Salad and Apple Coffeecake.
Again, Thanks for lookin'!

This card is for 2 challenges:
Clearly Inspired Challenge #32
The design sketch is from Mojo Monday and the color scheme is for the Clearly Inspired.
The color scheme is lime, turquoise, ginger and mud.
The butterfly stamp is from Martha Stewart. I first stamped it with Stampabilities light green, but then I decided it was way too light, so I stamped over it with Distressed Ink peeled paint.....But then I decided that was too dark, so I stamped over it several times with the light green again. Sometimes you have to just keep playing with something to get it right. LOL!
The sentiment is a Just Rite stamp in Momento bahama blue.
Thanks for taking a look!
My goal was to make a 2 Christmas cards each month of this year. Well, that train got derailed by the remodeling of the office. But I'm back on track with July and made these two this week. I like to take an idea or sketch and play with it....do it a couple of ways. I had seen this flower design made by taking a square and rounding 2 corners of each square. I had not really thought about making a Christmas card with that idea but I like the way that these turned out.

Clean and Simple???? That is a challenge for me! Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a clean and simple girl. For heaven's sake.....my eyeglass frames have sparkles on them! I really wanted to add ribbon and bling or something. I'm a paper hound. I love layering. Okay, enough whining.
I did it. Clean and Simple. The iris stamp is from Heartfelt Creations (www.heartfeltcreations.us) GRS-63C. I used both my Pigma markers and Smooch ink for the colors. The sentiment is TPC Studio, Playful Expressions.
Thanks for stopping by and looking!
