AmberInk - Fan Mail

Awww, I'm feeling kind of sad. This is my last project for my term as an Amber Ink torchbearer. I know I will still be using their fun images and papers but it just won't be the same. On Friday, March 17th, I'll recap my Amber Ink projects and the following Monday the new torchbearers will be announced.







This is another card that I made for Operation Write Home. I am really working on getting my box filled so I can ship it out soon. I had to use Mod Kitch Kitsch and Say It Like It's 1959!. These sets are so perfectly punny - I love them! If you aren't comfortable using digi stamps, they also come in clear stamp sets.

Before I go today, I wanted to tell you about a new line of digi stamps on Amber Ink. The line is called "Get Them While They're Hot - Sheen On" It is a line of sentiments inspired by Charlie Sheen and his recent rants. I soooo wanted to make a card with one this week end but I ran out of time. Go check them out HERE.



Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week!





Supplies:


  • Stamps: Mod Kitch Kitsch and Say It Like It's 1959! from AmberInk, It's Official from PaperTrey
  • Papers & CS: Georgia Pacific CS, PaperTrey kraft CS, October Afternoon Schoolhouse DP, misc. orange

Your little "fan" card is too cute!

Love that kraft cs and that embossing folder. Adorable card, especially with the orange and the distressed edges!
I know how precious time is which is why I generally don't even post and pass on any blog awards, but you always inspire me so I left you a blog award on my blog. (I hope it's ok, )
Cheryl - you rocked as an Amber Ink torch bearer!!!! They've got to be soooo happy with you!!!

Awesome card, Cheryl! Lovin' that retro image and I love how you put it all together. Perfect card for OWH.

I am seriously laughing so hard at the Charlie Sheen digis! That guy is a nut but some of those sentiments would be so stinkin' perfect for cards! Did you see the video on YouTube with him in "Warlock Cooking"? Insane! :)

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
