A mishmash of cards....

Hello Everyone!

Happy Saturday.  I hope you have some crafting planned for this long weekend.  I am a bit later than usual with my weekly card post.  I was hoping for the sun to come out so that I could redo some photos of my recent cards, but no luck, so I will apologize for the quality of some of these shots. 

I love this text stamp, and use it over and over.  Many of the cards that I am making this year will be mailed off to my "off to college" girls over the next several years, so it is a very appropriate sentiment for those cards. 

I enjoyed working with bold colors on this card. 

This is a neat way to use washi tape.

This little paper pieced owl was a fun make. 

I recently discovered "one layer" cards.  I am intrigued by their simplicity, and had to try one. I made the background strip with masked Distress Ink, and over stamped with Archival black, with some additional shadow stamping.  I have been wanting to improve  my stamping skills, and this seems like a good way to practice. 

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!



  1. ok, trying again. LOL I stated you have been busy, great cards.

    1. Thanks, Michelle! Having a blast in my craft room, lately!

  2. All of them are great, Elizabeth, I especially like the butterfly's color combo!

    1. Thanks, Lisa. Yellow and blue is a favorite of mine. Probably because if you mix them, you get green! LOL


Your kind comments are very much appreciated!
