Designs on Cloud 9

For the hop today, I've created two cards that are completely circutless.  I totally went old school, back to stamps and cutting designs out of patterned paper.

The first card is Falling Leaves.  I love this time of year because of the rich colors.  I love to go out and take picture of the leaves changing color.  In Alaska, we don't have all the colors you see in the States, but it's beautiful.

This card I cut the leaves out of some paper I had laying around my craft area.  The stamp is from Close to My Heart.  One thing I love about this card is that it was totally made from things I already had so nothing had to be bought.

My next card is one I made for my granddaughter. I call it "Nuts about you"

It is so cute, I used a sticker I had on hand along with stickles. I got this paper from Joann's and found a great glittered button.


This is a 862 Piece K&Company "All Season" Scrap Kit.  All you have to do is leave me a comment with contact information, you don't have to become a follower, but it would be nice if you would.  I hope you enjoy and I will utilize Random.Org to select the winner on Sunday, September 19th.

Birthday Card - Girl

I made this card for my friend's 1st birthday!  This was in May and I can't remember what I used.

Blessed Card

I made this card for my July RAK Partner.  Can't remember the receipe.

Male Birthday Card

My mother in law asked me to create a birthday card for my brother in law.  I'm so not good with male cards and nothing looked right.  I thought okay, I'll just make a simple card with mascline colors.  I thought it turned out well.  My husband is like "this is not your best work"  LOL  He's so funny!

My Creative Time - Throwback Thursday Challenge

I created this card for the My Creative Time - Throwback Challenge.  The challenge was to go "Old School"  Meaning no Cricut.  This was hard, everytime I thought of something, I wanted to cut it. 

The card had to be totally Circutless and have the colors PURPLE, ORANGE, GREEN & BLACK!

I used my Martha Stewart punches and various stamps for the card.
