Cards Cards Cards

I've been getting into stamping lately, something I thought I'd never do.  I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos, and buying a lot of stamps and inks and dies. Cardmaking is rewarding because it's something I can actually finish in one sitting usually. I've been trying to make up enough cards to get through a year of birthdays and other occasions so I will have cards on hand when I need one. I don't have enough yet but I'm still working on it!  Here are some I have made recently.

I am beginning to get a little Stampin' Up! collection, but there are so many different companies I love, that I can't commit to just one. These first three cards use mostly Stampin' Up stamps.

I love roses! The two- and three-step stamps are challenging for me, but are so pretty with the different shades of inks.


These roses I colored with Spectrum Noir markers.


Two looks from the same die. The first one is inked with a sponge and the second one is cut from foil paper.

For this one, I followed a sketch from CardzTV.

I decided I was using too much pink so I should make some other colors! ;)

I got a Gina K Designs card kit for my birthday in May and I followed some of her tutorials for making cards with it.  All of the stamped images were colored using Spectrum Noir markers.


That's it for now! I've sent some of these out already, and there are others I made that I didn't include here. I have several other projects that I did over the summer that I want to share next.
