ORANGE & YELLOW ON BLACK

Hello Bloggers!


I hope you're all ready for the weekend.  Summer is quickly coming to an end.  Our mornings feel a bit chilly compared to the last few months.  Feels good!  

Today's card is one I made in a SU workshop with Leilani, awhile back.  The clear acetate with gold design on the left side is by SU, as are the stamps and sentiment.  After coloring the flowers and die cutting, it was a quick card to put together.





Thanks for stopping by to visit.  I'll be back later with another card.
Hugs, Geri

A Card made for Southwest Trading Post's - Just Brads & Eyelets Co.

Hello Bloggers,

Today's card is one I made for the owner of Southwest Trading Post's Brads & Eyelets.  They're a bit hard to see.....but if you look closely, you'll see the cute centers of the flowers.  They are embellishments from Just Brads & Eyelets.  Just Brads & Eyelets owner, Sharalynn, put out a challenge to make something with the green embellishments.  This is what I came up with.
Stamps are from Stampin Up, ribbon from my stash, and a dotted embossing folder for the background.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Hello Blog Friends,

As you can tell, I've been really bad about blogging.  I have so much to do, blogging has not been on my mind.

I hope you are well.  I just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a Happy 4th.

No 4th of July card to post, but I'll share a dragonfly card with you today.

The white background was stamped with a tan ink pad, and the dragonflies were colored with green and blue.  I made the card so long ago, I don't remember what supplies were used.  :o(  The dragonfly die is by SU.  Three pearls were added to finish it off.


Thanks for stopping by.....and have a fun and safe celebration! Hugs, Geri 


HAPPY EASTER!

HAPPY EASTER!

Wishing you all a blessed day with family and friends.  

This year's Easter card is one with some humor.  I've seen different versions of this, and this is mine.....
I used scrapbook paper from my stash for the background.  The grass was cut with fringe scissors, and the tiny flowers are made from a variety of punches, then I dotted the centers with yellow Liquid Pearls.   The brown bunnies are a Tim Holtz die.  I used a scallop punch to remove part of one bunny's butt, and the other one's ears.  I hope you get the humor....one friend told me she had to explain it to her hubby.  Ack!  To finish off the card, I added a few green sequins.

IT'S DRAGONFLY TIME!

Happy Weekend Friends!

It's dragonfly time.  Summer is almost here, and these little guys will be flying around before we know it.  I think we all love the beauty of the dragonfly.  I used to love seeing them when we went fly-fishing.  I used to fish from a float tube and paddle around the lake.....so much fun!  The best part was having so many different colored dragonfly's land right on my float tube!  

I made this card at the Glitter Chicks swap, and it was originally designed by Liane.  She makes beautiful cards, and dragonflies are one of her favorites.  Thanks, Liane!  Awesome card.  This is the new SU dragonfly die. Pretty die cut doily, and I'm not sure, but it may also be SU.  Love the brown and white polkadot paper, and the tan embossed background behind the dragonfly is so pretty.  Three tiny pearls added, and the sentiment on a little banner and card is done.



Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll be back later with something new.   Hugs, Geri 

3rd Prize at the Rubber Stamp Convention

Image
Hello Bloggers!

I won 3rd prize at the Albuquerque Rubber Stamp Convention!  I'd never entered a card before, so when I saw that one of the categories was "You're a Classic" ..... I thought I'd enter my card for fun.  Barely got it mailed in on time, since it was a last minute decision.  Glad I did now.  3rd prize was $50.00 to spend at any of the vendor booths.  

The first photo is the actual card that won.  They have to be A2 size, and I'm used to making the bigger A7 size.  I apologize for the photo, but all the contest cards were covered in a huge sheet of plastic, hence the glare.  I was in such a rush to mail the card off, I failed to take a photo of it.  Two friends came to my rescue.  I'm not sure if Danne or Ken took this photo as I received two photos of the card.  So....thank you both for taking the photos!  :o)

The second photo is a card I made for someone who ordered a card when she saw the one that won.  I made the special order in the A7 size.…

THE ESSENCE OF LOVE IS KINDNESS......

Hello Friends,


A quick weekend post.  I made this card in a swap. The original design is by my friend, Liane.  :o)
  I love the red tulips wrapped in printed paper with little hearts.  The background paper is also printed paper.  A black and white twine is tied around the image.  Colored with Copic markers.  The card base is black.  Makes a really cool card.

I've managed to catch two colds in less than  2-1/2months, so I've been slow blogging.  There's some kind of yuck going around that just won't let go.  Getting better now. Thanks for stopping by the blog.  I'll be back later with something new.  Have a good weekend. Hugs, Geri
