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!!!

Missing You from Church Female version

Sorry I didn't get back to make this post yesterday as promised.  I've been so sick here lately.  Well, for the last week anyway.  Me and the hubby both have been sick.  I also had to get down to Mom's yesterday to help on her house remodel.  I say I help but honestly I mainly watch. lol.  So here's the card all tho a little late.  This is another square 5.5" card and I used My Mind's Eye designer paper pad called "Sky's the Limit", and If you haven't checked out this paper yet you so should.  I mean it's beautiful.  I think It may be my new favorite paper pad.  Of course, for card making I buy the 6x6" pads for the smaller prints. I also used a Martha Stewart doily die cut and it's done in like a metallic white paper, pretty cool.  I also die cut the sentiment label from a Spellbinders die and cut it from the designer paper then inked it with Worn Lipstick distress ink from Tim Holtz.  I used a couple of washi tapes: the blue and pink with the cross's cause it's from the church, and the yellow flourish that I cut into fish tail banner shapes.  I stamped out the "Know that you are Loved" stamp and added it to the pink card stock, the same as what I mounted the card base onto, then added the banner of washi tape to the bottom.  To make the tape more workable I first adheared it to a strip of white card then cut out around it.  That also made the flowers on the tape show up white because it's naturaly translucent.  I did the same thing with adding it to white card and cutting it out to the piece in the lower right hand corner and added it with my tiny attacher from Tim Holtz. The flowers are a mix from Prima and the Paper Studio and the leaf is Recollections. And that's it for this card.  Sorry, once again, that it's a whole day late.  I wish I could have gotten it up yesterday.  I hope you guys are all having an awesome weekend, I know we are having some really mild weather here and I'm really enjoying it. I hope you are having nice weather where ever you may be.  I hope you all have a blessed Sunday and Until next time, Much Love and Hugs, Amy K.
