Color Swap Card!

Here is a card I made for a color swap I am in. The colors are Kraft, Black, Red & White Creme for the image! I used some pre folded Kraft card stock for my card base. Then took the red piece and ran it through my Cuttlebug in the Allegro folder. Then I took my black document ink pad and ran it over the whole piece. I had some music note brads and attached them. The image is from Stamps Happen, a D. Morgan Design. I have had that stamp for quite some time and never used it. I love music and most of all I love God, so this is what I chose to use. You can't see it in the picture, but I used my Sekura gelly roll glitter pen in the notes and on the dots in the image to give it some sparkle and bling! I hope you like it!

Do you have stamps you have yet to ink up? I have lots of them and just need to get the time and mojo to play.

I would love to hear you comments or suggestions, so please leave one and thank you for stopping by! Hugs Lori

New card to share!

Hi, well I finally have another card to share with you! It is based on this sketch #70 from Tamera's Sketch's
It is from 2008. I think! Anyway, this sketch was the hardest for me to do. It was the cutting of that shape. Then when I finally got it cut, I realized that I had done it backwards! Ugh! To late, was not going to do it again after wrecking numerous pieces of paper and it still is not a great cut. You can't see it in the picture, but the black has a gold background stamped on it and that is why I didn't want to waste it. Anyway, aside from my obvious blunder, what do you think of this card? Isn't it cute!!! I just love that little Bee Hive and had so much fun coloring it, that I made some ATC's with it too!
I used my small circle Nestibilites on the Bee Hive Piece and the bottom pc is from a Marvy Scalloped Oval Punch (Borrowed). I honestly can't tell you about the paper, except that I adore it and only have one quarter sheet piece left....Boohoo! Don't you think it is perfect for the Bee Stamps? I do! The Bee Hive Stamp is from Hero Arts, Bee Seeing you is Museum of Modern Rubber and the little Bee in the left hand corner is a PSX stamp (Sadly no longer in business). The yellow card stock has ridges in it and is from Marcos Paper (surprised I remembered that, since I have had it for a long time) It is one of those that I only have a few of and have hoarded forever! I have decided to stop hoarding stuff and use it! Why else did I buy it! LOL! I hope you like the card as much as I do and would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment! I may make another one, slightly different (Because I am not going to try to cut that piece ever again!), because I liked it so much, that I will make one to keep! This one is already flying to Canada and should arrive there soon!

Thanks for stopping by to see me and have a great evening! Hugs Lori
