Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

Celebrate your love anniversary card

I know I've made a bunch of post today but I had several to catch up on.  Its just that time of year when I have loads of cards to make.  Lots of birthdays and anniversarys.  This one is an anniversary card made for my Mother and step father in laws. The paper and floral die cut are from the Que Sera Sera line from k & company, card stock is from Bazzill basics, the large label is cut from the Elegant edges cartridge for the cricut and the small label is from the lacy labels cartridge.  Stamps are from Tim Holtz for the flourishes and the sentiment is from Print works.  I used some chalk ink and some distress inks.  Hope you enjoy this today.

Lady bug birthday card

My Mom had me to make this card for her to give to one of her good friends at work for her birthday.  The lady loves lady bugs so I wanted to incorperate that into the design of the card.  I used the Paisley cartidge for the cricut for the lady bug cut.  The paper is from the Twitterpated line from imaginisce, stamps are from inkadinkado "Thoughs for the day" set, Ink is stays on in Jet black and distress ink in tumbled glass, I used my prisma color pencils to color in the flower.  Love this sweet little card and hope you do too.

Just 4 you card

This card was made for my dear friend, Robin.  I used a Graphic 45 stamp from Hampton Art for the lady and embossed her and used a studio g stamp for the label and sentiment.  I also used some distress ink and some ek sucess bling and a prima flower.  I am uncertain about the paper line, sorry.  This is a good excample of a simple and fast to make card.  Hope you enjoy this post today.

card with Florals Embellished

I made this card to send along with a package to a wonderful young lady named Tosha.  I used a couple of cricut cartridges for this card.  Using lacy labels for the background label.  I also used floral embellished for the beautiful bird.  I used stamps from inkadinkado and colored them with my prisma color pencils.  I loved the effect.  I also used some distress inks from Ranger.  The paper is the Miraposa stack from DCWV.  I hope you enjoy this card today and have a wonderful Memorial day holiday.

Happy Mother's Day card

I hope all you wonderful Mothers out there had a great day yesterday celebrating your day.  I, myself, am not a mother and it makes me sad if I spend too much time thinking about it.  I haven't been able to have children yet anyway being that I'm disabled and all.  I still keep a glimmer of hope that one day I may become a mother though.  I think that would be the single most important thing I could ever do with my life.  I know it's a lot of work and it's a thankless job but the rewards must be out of this world.   My brother and I and his two children spent the day with our mother yesterday.  We had a great time with the kids doing some finger paint art for their mother and Dylan, who will be turning 7 this week, came and spent a couple hours with me and we made a card for him to give to his mother.  He loves using the cricut machine.
I used Websters pages for the background paper and a stamp from Hot off the Press and colored it with my copic markers.  I used some flowers from wild orchid crafts, and some that I made myself. The sentiment stamp is from studio g's ditto line of unmounted rubber stamps.   Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you all have a wonderful week.
