Another Thank You Card

Hello Everyone!

 Today I am posting an old card. I love this paper from My Mind's Eyes.Lots of patterns and colors.  I still have tons from this collection and I don't think I will run out if it soon. Which gets me thinking about giving this paper a different use other than cards. I keep going through Pinterest and all the favorites people pin specially the DIY pins. It is amazing the amount of creative people out there in the world.

When I created this card I was thinking of my fellow teachers and how thankful I am for their support and understanding in many ways. I am going to stop talking and let you enjoy. I apologize for the pics. They are not as great as they use to be when I was in Venezuela. Something to do with the time of the day I am takig my pics now.

Hope you enjoy it. BTW do you have something in your mind that can improve the looks on this card? Please let me know and dropping a line or two.

Thank You Stiched

Hello everyone!
 I am on a roll and I will tell you why in another post. But for now please enjoy this card I made. This is a stitched card using October Afternoon from the Modern Homemaker collection. I looooooove this pad.

 I also used  DMC 25 red and black to stitch the card and make it a bit different. I also used Inkadinkado All Occasions Stamps and Stampin Up Basic Black ink. The paper comes from the School House collection from October Afternoon.

The lay out as you can see it was not my idea. If you go to this link you will see that I am still a fan of Kristina Werner hehehe... (sigh) Oh how I miss her challenges. That is why I am using her layouts a lot lately. It is a bit of a challenge to make other's ideas work in your cards and in you own style, don't you think?

Come by tomorrow or so I will have more cards uploaded.

Nicest Thought

Hello Everyone!
 I have not being able to stop using (actually trying to use) kraft cardstock for cards. I loooove how other designers like Kristina used it with versamark and created this cartoonish effect. Anyway, here is what I came up with. It took me a while to get this effect going (lack of material or bad use of it ;))

So the layout was an inspiration from Kwerner and the rest of the materials and tools will be posted tomorrow. My little girl, Emma, is asleep and I have to take advantage of it while I can. Hugs to everyone and thanks for reading.

I used Versamark Ink pad, October Afternoon's Homemaker collection paper pad, Home Tweet Home stamps from My Little Shoe box, quite cute stamp! 

Anyway, you guys have a wonderful rest of your weekend.
