This is a second version of the Miss You card (see below). I like the type on this one better - it's without the shadow background layer. I like the color schemes on both cards, and the pendants can be removed and put on a chain!


This is the project we made in our April technique group. It was designed by Christel (who started the group and hosts it at her house every month) - isn't it gorgeous! And it's a perfect frame for our group photo!

Technique Group

This is a great group of talented ladies that get together once a month to share techniques, scrap, create, have fun and eat! Each month a different member designs a project (card, page, mini-album, etc), makes the kits, and teaches the group how to put it together! Each member brings a dish for pot luck, and $5 to pay for their kit. Have friends? Get together!

Miss You...

I designed this card to send to my aunt in Tennessee. I love the card, but I am now thinking that maybe the "Miss You" should be smaller and in a less modern-looking type. What do you think? (I like constructive suggestions :)
But on with the recipe... The base is a very light pink cardstock. I used the MS punch for the lattice. The first layer is Paper Studio Mirabelle Plaid, and the layer on the inset piece is Mirabelle Roses. Ribbon is May Arts, and pearls are orphans in my stash. The sentiment "Miss You" is from the Sentimental cartridge, cut twice and layered. The pretty heart charm is by Bead Landing (from Michael's).

My Friend

My best friend, Kelly, was the inspiration for this card. She is such a special person and I love her dearly!
I used white Bazzill textured card stock for the base, and a lavendar metallic card for the layer. The lace down the middle is MS punch with Perfect Pearls added for glimmer. Butterfly is from Indie Arts cartridge - I cut both butterfly layers in white, then used yellow ink on the bottom layer, and lavender ink on the top. I applied Tiara Stickles (my favorite) on the body and antennae of the butterfly. Ribbons, flowers and bling are "orphans" from other projects.
(PS: {{{{{Shana and Ru}}}}} - you are also my BFFs and there are cards in the making for you, too!)

I made this card from "orphans" (my term for any leftover bits and pieces of any scrapping material). The card base is a piece of white, smooth cardstock which I dusted with white Perfect Pearls to add shimmer. The first layer (the light bluish color) is a textured piece of cardstock with a metallic sheen. The second layer is a piece of white textured cardstock which I embossed with the Swirls folder and dusted with white Perfect Pearls to add shimmer. The third layer, the oval shape, is another piece of the bluish cardstock. Each layer is pop-dotted. The word "Mom" is from the Mother's Day cartridge, with the bottom layer cut from the white textured cardstock, and the top layer is cut from the bluish shiny cardstock. The ribbon is from J's, and the brads are orphans from a wedding page I made. I edged all the layers with VersaColor's celadon ink. On the inside I stamped Happy Mother's Day using the celadon ink. Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

Thinking of You Card

I saw this pendant at Hobby Lobby - and thought "that would be an awesome gift to attach to a card"! (It's by Metal Gallery.) So I bought it. The neat thing is that I had bought the paper from JoAnn's months ago (Heidi Grace, Winnefred St. line) - and the pendant and paper are a perfect match in design and color! I used Sentimentals cartridge to cut the "Thinking of You". I edged the card with ColorBox Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye Inkpad (Chestnut Roan, from The ribbon and lace are from my stash.
Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
