some cards...

just sharing some cards from the last couple of months real quick! this guy was an easy-peas-y card to showcase on of the new jenni bowlin embellished butterflies. it also features a perennial fave, the october afternoon stripe. they are always good, no matter what collection they are from! (that free form scripty "hello" is from a muse)

this little chickie was one of the cards in my "garden variety" paper pad class. i didn't think i was really going to be into these "pure innocence" girls from my favorite things, but i also used this girl on my london rain layout, and i have to say, sometimes it's just cheap therapy to sit and color. especially when you're using the copic markers, they make it all so easy.

obvs it's been a little while since i made this dude, but he's still cute! i stamped this bunny stamp from unity stamp co. onto kraft paper and cut him out (it was super easy because he has such a nice basic shape) and also stamped him on the musical note paper from "dear lizzy" to paper piece his tummy, inner ears & little bunny nose. the "growing green" paper (also from "dear lizzy") made a great easy background for him and then i cut a flap, added the egg paper and called it a day.

this was the easter card i made for the boy. he has an affinity, an unfortunate one, for neon yellows and greens, so i glittered over the a muse "peep" stamp with 2 of the brightest doodlebug glitters i could find, perched it on a card base made out of an american crafts "moda bella" paper i've had sitting around for a while and added it to his easter basket (which was an overturned little kids firefighter helmet!)

this card is a product of our april sketch pamphlet at scraptasia. we used a card sketch by becky fleck and each took it for a spin. it was pretty cool how different they all ended up looking! for mine i used one of my current paper obsessions, the "brook" collection from crate paper and this rad little snag 'em scooter stamp along with the "don't forget to have a little fun today!" stamp from a muse. love, love, love how fun these bill envelope sized cards are!

a couple of weeks a go i taught a bridal shower "class" where everyone who came made the bride's thank you cards in the class and that way she walked away with 200 thank you's in her wedding colors (which are raspbetty & navy), all handmade and ready to go. it was pretty interesting to create something that was less about my style, and more about what she would love to send. for sure, this is my favorite card of the bunch, simple but still my style!

I love the first one because of the color and it can be adapted for a wedding card. Looks gorgeous.
