It's been a long time since I have posted here. I really have not made many cards in the past couple of years. I have bought some from cardmakers and paper crafters that I follow and that sell their cards on etsy. But I decided to join in today and participate in Papertrey Ink's blog hop challenge. I keep buying stamps so I thought this would be a fun way to put together a quick card. following the picture that PTI is using for this blog hop challenge. I really enjoyed making this card this morning.
To make this card I used Papertrey Ink cream card stock, pure black card stock, orange zest card stock, orange zest ink, Momento black ink, Bloom Builders 3 dies, You've Been Frame: Oval die, and the designer paper with the polka dots is Echo Park The Apothecary Emporium.
This was quick and fun and just what I needed to try to get back in the swing of making cards.
I am not good at making up my own design for cards, so I enjoy doing sketches. I like the Sketch For You To Try that comes around each month.
I needed some birthday cards, so I made several of these. It's not as time consuming when you make the same design for several cards at once.
I used Papertrey Ink's Simple Sunflower stamp set for this.
All materials were Papertrey Ink except the patterned paper was October Afternoon.
Aunt Sue received a chocolate fudge birthday cake from a friend of hers. She wanted me to make a card for her to thank her for that lovely cake. I used Taylored Expressions stamp set called What's Cookin? October Afternoon patterned papers "Thrift Shop" and PTI sentiment and silk ribbon and cream card stock.
