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!!!

A Birthday for my Husband

This is the Birthday card I made for my wonderful, smart, and funny Husband this year in March.  I'm catching up on the blog post but it's taking some time.  Hey, at least I'm crafting, right?  lol. So, to make this card I first started with the 5.5 inch square corrugated card bases from Micheals. I added a piece of the red Bazzill basics card stock cut to fit the card base then I used patterned paper by Teresa Collins called Far and Away.  I cut the map paper a 1/4" smaller all around then inked the edges with distress ink.  I used another piece of the patterned paper in this kinda floral damask pattern and I used the cricut to cut out this note book shape from the Artiste cartridge from Close to My Heart. The two tag shapes are from the paper line on the cut apart sheet.  I inked all the edges with the same distress ink. I used some paper flowers from The Paper Studio by Hobby Lobby and added a bow that's wrapped around the note book shape die cut.  Then I just added the Happy Birthday sentiment and I'm unsure of the maker of that stamp.  Some of my stamps no longer have the paper work with them, sorry.  I'm sure I used Colorbox fluid chalk ink to stamp that out.  

Okay, that's all for today.  I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by today and check out my blog.  I hope, as always, that you find some inspiration.  I wish you all a happy and blessed day and I will be back tomorrow with another card.  See you then.  Much love and hugs, Amy k
