What do these have in common?

Hello there!

I am soo happy and I am dying to let you know why. I am just not sure how it works and I promise I will let you know as soon as I am sure but I rather wait and see what happens before I tell you.

In a different note..tell me, what do these cards have in common?! Yes, you got it! it is the colors and o course the paper. I have come up with another way to use the same piece of paper to create several cards.

This one you'll notice is not very straight but I liked the idea. I used Cosmo Cricket 6x6 paper a tons of bit of paper I carried with me all the way from America. I also used Hero Art stamps, versamark and embossing powder of course.
Of all these cards I think this one was the funnest to create. Lots of itsy bits to do with a great result ( in my opinion anyway) I should be more humble and let you be the judges!
Again, tons of bits of paper, staping, embossing, sutting gluing... sigh, fun, fun, fun.

Last but not least, butterflies! I heard they are very IN these days I don't have many to different kinds of butterflies so you will be seeing these several times for a while.
Well, I am truly can't wait to let you know but I promise as soon as it happens I will come and blog about it!
Many hugs and thank you for passing by and read!

Thanks Chick Colour

Hello there!
Have you ever heard the saying " We'll just have to make do"? I have actually had it in my head for the last 8 months. So with that in mind I have come up with ideas to make the cards I WOULD make IF I had the proper materials. So for this one I cut and made my own "Stencil" kind of stamp with the letters.
I think it turned out well except I won't be able to use the template anymore I kind o ruined it with versamark plus I chose the wrong material to make it.
Anyway... I would love to hear about what improvisation you have made to made cards... if you do have one please let me know!
Many hugs! and thanks for visiting!

Thanks Chic!

Good afternoon or morning or evening...

Hope you are all great today. To tell you the truth, I am a bit tired but excited to show you this card. I know there is nothing really special to this card, I just really like it!!

I have actually thought of making a series of the same kind of black and white cards with itsy bits of color. The only color I added on this one was a 3/4" stripe of Cosmo Cricket paper I used at the border of the card.

I also love the chic from a stampin up set I can't remember the name of... but I am telling you that chic is quite versitile, don't you think? I also added the heart with one of the Hero Arts stamp and some of my hand writing.

Easy to put together, fast and cute, what do you think?

Old Valentine's

Oops! I completely forgot to post these tags I made to give along with St. Valentine's day little goodies to all of our new friends here in Islamabad.

I used the DCWV Mi Casa Collection. It was the only paper I brought with me before leaving the USA.

Please excuse my camera from this next picture. This pic just made me realize I need to up grade to a better camera... something that won't change the colors in my cards. Hopefully won't have to be a very big camera or too sofisticated or at least easy to use! What camera do you currently use to take pics of your cards?! please let me know!

In the space above the "have a great day "tag I worte a tiny note.

What do you think? Anyway... enjoy it!

Music Recital

Hello there!

We are back from our trip to Thailand. Let me tell you it is our second time there and it was great! we planned better this time and our time there turn out to be much more enjoyable.

Okay lets go to the matter of this post which is this card down here. It is actually an invitation I was asked to create for a Srping Music Recital. I first started thinking about flowers and things like that... but since I had to create at least 15 I knew I could not put too many details in this card... so here it is...

I used thread inspired on KWerner's card. I don't have much material but what I have I am trying to use every bit or recycle which I did. the Kraft paper is recycled!

The music notes were "saddly" printed from my computer. I say saddly because to tell you the truth I rather stamp them but hey it worked!

So what do you think? In a different note. I am very happy to be back to our home in Islamabad. Our bed, our confortable kitchen, living room and tv room! Love them all!
