crazy card maker

The crazy card maker would be me, I have needed a lot of cards lately and so I have gone crazy making tons of cards...which ok by me since it doesn't take much to get me to make a card :). The first card I needed was a wedding card for a good friend of my dh, she is getting married tonight but as it turns out I cannot go since my little sweetpea (dd) is sick and won't let me out of her sight. But my dh is going to goto the wedding with his parents, while I stay home and make my little one feel better. I also am trying to get rid of one of those nasty sinus pressurized headaches...or is it a migrane? The "Bride/groom" stamps and the heart stamp came from Studio G clear acrylic stamp set from Michael's, I LOVE it :)!!!

The second card that I made was from a MFT stamp set called "Serenity Now", that I borrowed from Kim but will HAVE to get. It is a stamp set that is all about Yoga, my great Aunt is into the yoga thing along with some of her friends and so I just HAD to make her a card. Well, once she opened up her card she asked me to make 2 more cards for her to give to her other yoga pals :)! So The first card is for my Aunt, the other two cards are for her friends :)! Hey Julie, I layered the last two cards...more so than I usually would actually. Thank you Kim for letting me borrow this set :)!

I used versamark ink pad to stamp the leaf sprig from the "Embrace Life" stamp set from SU onto the purplish colored cardstock. The patterned paper that you see, that I used as one of my layers, was from the "Asian" patterned paper slab that I got from Michael's. Not too sure if I am a fan of this color, especially in the picture, it makes it look almost neon and it was far from being neon in real life.

I used a smaller style card for this one I made, it worked out well :)! I did a different layering for this card than the other cards...I also used a lot of dimensionals for this layering. I was really happy with this card, but I think the next time I would add one one of those coins that you can get!

This card I made was a card for one of my cousins, his wife just had a baby and my mom wanted to send them a cute card. So I made this cute card for my mom to give my cousin and his wife...LOVED this patterned paper, I have seen several of you bloggers use it on some of your cards.

The next card I made was a for a good friend of mine, whom I hadn't seen since Jr. High days and we bumped into each other at the grocery store one day4 months ago...they have been going through a tough time lately. Anyways, I thought they could use one of my cards to cheer them up :)! I used the SEE D's Coffee Stamp set, since my friend and I go for a lot of coffee's together...can't get enough of this stamp set!! Oh yeah, the sentiment that I used on the coffee cup came from the fun retired SU set called "Fancy and Flexible Phrases".

Wow! You've sure been busy! All super nice cards! One of my best friends would go crazy over the yoga ones! I love the patterned jungle cute!

Kim said...

These are AWESOME Catherine!! The wedding card is so cute...I think my favorite card is the one you did with the lotus cut out and put on the bottom of the card....but they are all beautiful!!

You've been a busy little lady! lol :) Very nice. I like the wedding couple, too. I just bought that coffee set from See d's last week...gotta play with it!

We ended up going to the Valley yesterday for the Apple Blossom Festival - the kids had a blast. Got to see lots of horses - that was the highlight for them, I think! Then, we went to the parade and they really liked that.

Anyway, lots to do here today..hope to make a card tonight, though, but we'll see how things go!

Talk to ya later!
