Birthday cards

A week or so ago we drove up into the mountains to see the fall leaves…unfortunately most of the leaves were gone already but it was so beautiful anyway. We even saw a little snow. Here’s some pictures:

Today I made a few birthday cards using a stamp set from Penny Black and some dies from MFT.

I handstamped the images and used my copic markers for coloring.

I cut the images out and layered them on some patterned paper.

I used the dies from MFT to create a nice edge and then stamped the sentiment. I finished off the cards by adding an enamel heart.

Which one is your favorite? I think I like the one with the little girl holding the balloons the best.

Where does the time go?

Its been a while! I didn’t realize how long it had been since I had posted on the blog. Life has been busy and I haven’t had a lot of time to make any cards. I did make a few yesterday and I’ve also started working on some wooden decor for Halloween!

Here’s one of the cards I made yesterday:

I used the stamp set “Space Explorer” from MFT. I stamped the images and colored them with copic markers.

For the background I used distress oxide inks and then I splattered it with water, then white paint and perfect pearls. I then adhered the images on to the background. I matted it with black cardstock and glued it to a white card base.

I then stamped the sentiment on some white paper and then added some distress ink to it to help it blend in more.

Here’s a few pictures of some of the wooden items I’ve been working on. They are available in my Etsy shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/jasmineblossomcrafts

I hope this finds you well. See you next time!

Beautiful day

Its a beautiful spring day today.  The sun is shining, that always helps me feel better. It just lifts my spirits.  We are going to have a rainy week so I am enjoying the sunshine while it lasts.

I often have a hard time making cards for boys/men.  I recently got a stamp set from MFT called Space Explorer and that has made it much easier. 

Here’s the first card I made with this stamp set:

MFT is one of my favorite stamp companies. They make such cute stamps.  I used some “galaxy” paper from Scrapping For Less for the background.  I stamped the images and colored them with alcohol markers.  Then fussy cut them out.  I used a circle die to cut a half circle for the moon. I stamped the sentiment and then adhered all the images to the card.  This time I used a grey card base.  I’m looking forward to using the other images in the stamp set for more cards.
