My First Easel Card & Vintage Too

My first easel card…yeah for me. I came across a blog candy that I wanted to enter and I had just over an hour to make this card, take pics and post.

Okay….I got my card entered so now I can edit this posting.  The blog candy is on Angie’s page where you had to make an easel card using brown and red.I tried to get decent pics but I was having a hard time with this for some reason.Anyhoo, these are the pics I decided to upload.  You know how you take 20 pictures and then narrow it down to just one or two views, LOL, I so hope I’m not the only one that does that.

This card was made with the Stampin Up Winter Post stamp set; Stampin Up cardstock-choc chip, ruby red and very vanilla.  I used close to cocoa ink along with a little choc chip and old olive.  It was all basic cuts except for the MS punch for the leaves with the flower (they were colored with copic G99).  I then just rolled the edges a little bit to give it an old time look.  Last I added three Basic Grey opaline perles to hold the card up.  The flower was from my flower box so I have no idea where it’s from.

That’s it for my first easel card….boy was that quick!!!  I hope you enjoyed this post.  Let me know what you think of my first easel.  I’m definitely open to any and all suggestions.


I would like to add this card to Bunny Zoe”s challenge where this month it is vintage!


A New Card

I decided to make a card using some kind of fibers.  For those of you that know me you understand just how difficult this is.  Well, I must say this isn’t exactly what I had in mind when I started out but at least I used fibers!!!  Plus green and orange are two of my favorite colors so the card turned out okay.  If it’s a total eyesore……………………someone please be honest enough to tell me.bella-cards-394

bella-cards-395The stamp is Stamping Bella’s Lottie & Gussie Gabalot.  The paper is SU (bold brights) and I colored the image with my copics.  Used my nesties and obviously plenty of fibers that I received from my Bella sistah Danyel.  The inside of the card was done with SU’s Happy Everything stamp set.


A Birthday Card!

I had to make a card for my SIL’s birthday that is coming up.  Always difficult for me to make cards for men but I keep on trying.  I got this image from one of the swap’s I was in a while ago and this was the only one left.  You know what that means…no wiggle room for mistakes.bella-cards-391

bella-cards-392I’m pretty happy with the way the card turned out.  I have decided I like the look of cards that have been decorated on the inside too so I wanted to give it a try.
The paper is SU Purely Pomegranate, Pacific Point, Basic Blackand the DP is from the DCWV Fall Stack.  I used my Copics for coloring.
