MIA for Way Too Long

I'm hoping that I can get back into the swing of things with this blog.  I really love blogging but I've been crazy busy.  So for now I'm just posting some of the things I've made over the past few months.

I've done more than just these two but I either haven't taken photos or the photos are still on the camera. 

I'm currently fighting strep throat so I'm hoping to get back into some projects soon.  I've got Christmas stuff to make and will showcase it here.

Mom's Birthday Card

My mom celebrated her birthday almost 10 days ago.  This is the card I made for her.  Like I said in my last post, I am overly in love with the Top Note Big Shot die.  So here's another card made with it.

Stamps:  Crazy for Cupcakes, With All My Heart
Ink: Black StazOn, Versamark
Paper: Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Cutie Pie DSP
Other:  Big Shot Top Note die, Watercolor Crayons, retired blue ribbon (no idea what color, sorry)

Bird Punch Anniversary Card

Lane and I celebrated 14 years of marriage last week.  I always find that stamping masculine cards is quite the challenge.  I love Stampin' Up! however, they really need to work on the masculine stamps department.  In their current catalog there is absolutely nothing that appeals to me for making manly cards.  So my challenge was, "How am I going to make a masculine anniversary card for Lane?"  I sorted through my retired DSP and found the plaid paper.  From there, I went through my stamp sets and couldn't find anything that appealed to me.  Then I had the a-ha moment.  Use the bird punch.  So this is what I came up with.  On the inside I just stamped Happy Anniversary.
ink - Versamark
paper - Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Whisper White, River Rock, Muirfield DSP
stamps - Friends Never Fade
punch - Bird 
other - Top Note Big Shot die, white gelly roll pen, Kiwi Kiss reversable ribbon

Wedding Card

Stamps:  Wedding Sweet
Ink:  Night of Navy, Versamark
Paper:  DSP Bridal Paper, Whisper White, Night of Navy
Other:  Cranberry grosgrain ribbon, Pastels, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Iridescent Ice embossing powder

I really like the way this card turned out.  I actually stamped it in early July so I kind of went with the red, white and blue theme.  The photo doesn't do as much justice to the card as I wish it did.

Some Recent Cards

I made these for my mom a few weeks ago.  She is not a stamper but loves handmade cards so every few months I stamp a bunch up for her.  I'm not including the recipes as there are quite a few I'm posting.  I really love the cards using the Tart & Tangy stamp set. 
The above card is a technique that was shown to me using ribbon scraps.  So I went through my own and made this card.  Thanks Mandy!

Wanted to show some of the great cards I got in a recent swap.  I got a total of 13 (I think), but I'm not showing them all.  Enjoy!
