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!!!

To make this card I started off with designer paper from My mind's Eye, " lost and found" paper stack. I layered the background pieces and distresses all the edges with worn lipstick distress ink from Ranger. For the die cut circle piece I used Die-namics "dizzy doily" die. The punch used for the sentiment piece is from ek Success. I also used a stamp from studio g in maraschino cherry by powder puff chalk inks. The flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts, its the foundations puffy white daisy blooms and I colored them using glimmer mist in black cherry, electric blue, and juniper. I used a Prima flower center for the flowers. To finish the card off I added a piece of vintage lace to the bottom and some Martha Stewart seam binding in pink.
That's all for this post. thanks for stopping by today. I've got more cards to come in the next few days to keep an eye out. Talk to you again soon. Hugs, Amyk

This is the card I made for my wonderful Father in law, Dale. He's been so good to my husband and I over the past 12 years that we've been together. He's helped us out in many ways over the years. He even took us on a cruise vacation for a week during Jan. in 2010. I made this card with my cricut mini and the gypsy handheld designing device. I used a label die cut from the Sentimentals cartridge and made it into the card base by welding to of the die cuts together with the gypsy. I honestly don't know how I ever got by before I had the gypsy. I use it for every single cut I make. I have my Mother in law, Judy to thank for the cricut Mini. She and Frank got it for me for Christmas last year. They are really good to me too. I am very lucky with the in laws that I have. They, all three of them, love me and treat me like one of their own, I love them all dearly. I used the Styled Labels die cut for the sentiment. and a stamp from TPC studios in Maraschino cherry ink from powder puff chalk inks. I also used some of the gears from Tim Holtz adhered with some glossy accents. (It makes the best glue). and some mini roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used some Glimmer mist in Candy apple red to color the base of the card. I used bakers twine from We r memory keepers.
