Recent Cards

It's always my plan to keep this blog current but to do so, I need to make sure I'm crafting! I've been making a few cards lately, here's just a small sampling.

This is a fast card I made for DIVA meeting swap. I used the Merry Moments paper from Stampin' Up and the Snow Swirled stamp set. The brads, ribbon and solid red paper are Real Red from Stampin' Up. For a card that I needed to make fast and make several copies, I think it turned out cute.

This is another simple card using both Stampin Up and my Cricut. I used the now retired paper line, Parisian Breeze Specialty, from Stampin' Up. The paddles are cut from Paper Dolls. I kept thinking they look more like spoons but had to use what I had at my disposal. I made this for a friend that had talked himself into deep waters during a light hearted chat. I couldn't resist teasing him, thus the card.
