Cards a Plenty!

So, I've been busy lately doing mostly my scrapbooking for my Disney Trip in 2015 (Jake's 5th Birthday).  HOWEVER, my Family reunion was last weekend, and for the silent auction I donated hand made cards, and I worked on these for about 2 weeks!  This was the only thing broght in for the auction, and our Treasurer liked them so much, she bought them!  YES!

I won this stamp set from Nina Marie's Blog, and I shamelessly copied these cards, so not my original ideas.  
They are cute though!!
Copic coloring on Fox and Owl and clouds
Water color with Distress Inks

Saw this stamp set on sale at Hobby Lobby, had to have it!  However, I found that it worked really well with no line coloring!  I tried this 3 times before getting it "right".  Copic coloring for beginners!  I'm getting better!

When I first got interested in stamping and card making, I would watch Lawn Fawn videos every day they posted a new one, and went into the back posts and watched as many as I could!  Love Lawn Fawn!

I love the Lawn Fawn Mini stamp and die sets!  Great prices for very cute stamp sets!
I LOVE this Jack-a-lope!  I also use that sentiment for Santa Cards!

simple cute stamp set, got it since we got an awesome ice cream maker, 
but have yet to gift anybody ice cream, but I'll be ready!
Copic Coloring on this one.

Apparently I'm kind of lucky on the Blog give-aways!  I won a gift card from Avery Elle and got this too cute Wild Birthday set!

Simple cards!
The heart was from my Cricut, it's one of the lacy simple or everyday or holiday cards, I can't remember!
Hocus Pocus was from stamps that I had, cat is a wooden stamp, Hocus Pocus is a cheap $1 spot stamp from Michael's. Background is Sizzix Swirl Embossing Folder

These are from stamp sets I got from Hobby Lobby or Michaels (again on sale)
Make A wish - Distress Ink - water color on the Sizzix Swirl Embossed background
Many Thanks - background distress ink over embossed background.  Folder is from Sizzix, not sure what it's called.

And, This one is from an really old Stampin Up floral layering set.  
Pink And Green are Distress Inks stamped on Water Color paper then painted over with water to blend.  
Such a fun and easy technique!
Happy Birthday is Heat Embossed over Vellum, just stuff I have in my stash.
I bought this (and several others) stamp set in the late 90s and early 2000s.  Still quite lovely!

So, as you can see I've been busy!
Happy Crafting!!!
