Some bunny loves you!

Hey, thought I post another card tonight. I really love this card. I took this digi image and then added some stickles to add some sparkle. I die cut it up 3 times with spellbinders dies. I then took this great plaid paper, from Michaels (recollections) and then sewed a strip of purple on with pink thread. I took this nice soft coloured pink ribbon and made a bow. I added some flowers, a brad, and a leaf to embellish it more. I made this sentiment on MS word to get similar colours and a playful font. I like how it turned out. I really like the brown matting I used, it helps the brown come out and give dimension to this card.

Summer Garden

Hey! I just love have summer'ie and bright and cheerful this card ended up being. I started out using this Recollection papers from Michaels. I love the honeycomb paper! I sewed it to the pink checkered paper. Then I took and die cut a pink loopy border using the MFT loopy border die cut. I then took this picket fence die, also from MFT and had it going across. I took this great image and layered it up with spellbinders 3 times. I popped it up using pop dots and then added some bling. I added this great bee from Martha Stewart and then some flowers, a brad, and this sentiment. The yellow ribbon banner is also from MFT. I'm going MFT crazy! The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp banner set I recently bought!

Summer loving

Hey everyone, I'm back from vacation. It was a nice trip but I'm so glad to be back! For this card I used this wonderful CC Designs image and then coloured her up and then used some stickles to give her some glitz. I layered her with some spellbinders dies. I took this blue/green flower paper and then sewed some pink checkered paper to add some real zesty colour. I then layered this MFT die loopy border on top. I then adhered the card mat to the black card base. I love how the black makes it pop. I added the sentiment I love summer, and attached it with brads. For this pinwheel, I made this out of the paper I had left over from the card. I really like how it turns out and then I added it with a brad so it could spin. Lastly I added the pink bling to add more colour to the left side of the card.

So Sweet

Hi all! One of my last posts before I am off on vacation! I love this card so much!!!! I used papers from the magazine Cardmaking. They usually give a freebee, and some of these papers are from that set I got with the magazine! I took the flowery paper and then sewed some polka dots down the card. I adhered this to a cream coloured card stock. I added some rich redie-pink ribbon to help that stand out. Then I adhered it all to a nice greenie-blue cardstock. I used this great stamp from Penny Black and then layered it up with spellbinders. I added some sparkle with some stickles. I used this banner/die stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped the "So sweet" in a lighter blueie-green colour and inked the banner around the edges a bit. I lastly added a flower, a blingy brad, and this great pinwheel element with a gem to finish up the card.

Ebay Store & My followers

Hey everyone. I wanted to thank all my followers for following my blog. It means so much to have people support you and love what you do! I hope to continue to put up new posts that you all like. I'm in the process of making a few new cards before we go on holidays, so I hope to post a few before we leave!

For awhile now I have sold cards on ebay and off my blog. I used to have a website, but when I started blogging I decided to just have some blogs instead of ebay. I have opened up an ebay store. I think it will be fun! I still have about 250 products to sell and I'm always making more. I enjoy making cards and albums for people. As some of you know, I am the mother of two autistic boys and they keep me pretty busy. When I need some down time, that is when I scrapbook! Anyways, thanks to everyone who is interested in my cards and albums I make. I am thinking of moving this blog to my other blog www.koscraps4u.blogspot.ca I'll send out a post when I plan to do this. Anyways, thanks everyone for stopping by!

Don't be crabby!

Hey everyone. Thanks for stopping by. I made up this cute crab card. We all know someone who is being crabby right, so why not give them a card that is funny and gets the point across lol!!! So I took this image and cut him out (I wished now I would have around his legs). I layered up some distressed papers and sewed a brown rectangle onto the card. I wanted to make our little crab pop off this card, so I used brown tones in behind. I added some red ribbon and then adhered it all to the kraft card base. I added the crab, sentiment, and bling to finish this off. I really like how it turned out!
