Clipboard

Here is a clipboard I made today. Steph, I was thinking you gave this clipboard to me. I have had it so long, I guess I can't remember! Maybe we got it at that scrapbook store in Ft Collins? Anyway! I thought it was cute!
I used the Mulberry paper from TAC. I cut out a couple of the matching flowers off of another of the papers in the pack.
I used the SwirlyGig stamps with palette ink to add a little something on each side! I also put a tag on it for some more decoration!
I can give credit again to Jen! She gives us all such great ideas! And I copied this one! Like I copy alot of things from Jen! She gives us such great ideas to go off of and then it starts the creative process flowing! :) Thanks Jen!!!

Here is a new card I made today! I made it for a girl at work that will be giving it to her daughter that is turning 21! It was so much fun to make! The pictures don't show the colors that well, but it is pink, brown, green, orange and blue! I used stickles in the center of the flowers on the patterned paper. I attached 4 colors of ribbon at the top with staples and a few cordinating snaps on the side! I used Sizzix numbers for the "21"!




As, you can see this is also a different fold. There should be another one of this type of card that I posted before. I layered it with green cardstock on the inside and then attached a piece of white card so she can write inside!


I used a flower punch and made a little flower out of brown paper just for a little something on the inside. I also covered the back of the card that I attached on the inside, because I did stitch the front cards together with my sewing machine. I think it looks better to cover all that loose stitching and the back of the snaps too!



This was alot of fun to make and I had to share it with you! Thanks for checking it out!

A few new cards.....

Here are a few new cards that I made this evening.

The first is from a challenge that I found on jensinkspot.blogspot.com. It was to use 4 specific colors and make a card.

From that challenge, I made another one using only 3 of the colors. I embossed the image and used a distresser for the edges of the cardstock!


The last card was fun to make. I took 2-3 different colors of chalk and rubbed them across a piece of cardstock. The I picked a stamp and coated it in Versamark. I stamped the image in the middle of the chalk. Doing this, the versamark pulled the chalk off of the cardstock so you can see the image in the chalk. I thought it turned out pretty cute! I also used Snarkels (as my sister calls them!) or Stickles to the rest of us, in the middle of each flower! I also used 2 different color inks to stamp the dragonfly in the middle! You will have to let me know what you think!

Thanks for looking!!
