More hidden treasure...

Okay, so since I am still waiting on my order of new goodies to arrive I figured I'd post another older card that I did.  This is another hidden gem within the files of my very full Pictures folder.  I loved this card.  It was one of my favourites.  I made it for my parent's anniversary last October.  It used some scraps I had left over from the Aspen WOTG, some bling from a past Connections Club set and the Childhood Portrait and Card Commentary stamp sets.  I even decorated up the homemade envelope!  I was feeling particularily crafty that day!  This was one of those cards that actually turned out better in real life than it did in my head.  Usually it's the other way around and my vision far exceeds the finished product!! 

(sorry the colour is off a bit...they are all Chocolate brown but for some reason these two look very warm)

Hidden deep in my computer

So I have been mucking about on my computer and I keep stumbling upon projects that never got posted here on my blog.  This card was one I made for a friend's baby shower (a year ago!) and I loved this card.   The colours are so soothing and it has a real vintage, shabby chic feel to it which is what I am all about!  I don't have all of the details about this card but one thing you will notice is I didn't use patterned paper.  The whole card is cardstock, stamps and ink.  It is actually a lot of fun making your own background paper!  You always get the colours you want!  :) 

Some of the detail...

This is the inside of the card...

Thanks for looking!

So Lisa...what's on it???

I know, I know!  I keep talking about the new Art Philosophy Cricut cart and all you want to know is what is actually ON this amazing cartridge I can't bare to live I right?  Well if you click HERE and then click on the blue book on the shelf to the left that says Art Philosophy you will be able to page through and see all of the many, many shapes on the new cartridge.  At the very end you will even be able to see some project examples of what you can do with these beautiful new shapes! 

All I can say is I am impressed and CAN'T WAIT to get my shabby little hands on it!!    Let me know if you want me to order you one!!  ;)

Planes, trains and automobiles...

What do little boys love more than planes, trains and automobiles?  I love the Birthday Boy stamp set for making little boy birthday cards.  Paired up with the Miracle paper pack and Kraft cardstock and I think this card is perfect for any little boy.  I used the cloud stamp from Over the Rainbow to make embossed clouds in the background and the cloud with the name ontop.  The plane and sentiment are both from the Birthday Boy stamp set and the ink colours are Sweet Leaf and Crystal Blue.  It was fun for me to make this card since I have two little girls and project like this are far and few between for me!

Thanks for visiting!
