A House of Cards

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Last year...

I forget exactly when, I was asked by my friend Nancy to make some cards for a Dutch publication, Cards Only. I was very excited to be asked, and I jumped at the chance. Well, yesterday I received my copy of the May/June 2009 issue. I had a little spotlight article as one of their guest designers with a little bio and photo of myself , along with six of my cards. Very fun to see myself in print. Now... I can't read a single word as the magazine is all in Dutch, but it is filled with so many gorgeous cards. I don't really need to know what they are saying to be inspired, now do I! ;) If you ever get a chance to get your hands on a copy of this magazine, you will not be disappointed.

Here are the cards I made. Hope you enjoy!
The first card is a fun little button flower card. Lots of Pink Paislee and K & Company goodness here. You can never go wrong with buttons and flowers.
Second is fun little card I did using Cosmo Cricket Be Happy Blackboard car. I think this one is my favorite of the bunch. It just makes me happy!
Next is monogram card using Creative Cafe goodies, and I cut the flower with my Cricut and Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge. I love the mix of colors on this.
Next is a cute little owl card using a mix of products. Very sparkly and shiny IRL.
This Celebrate card has lots of products mixed together too. Very bright and festive.
Lastly is a card using Glitz Design paper and my favorite Maya Road chipboard frames. They make wonderful flowers.
I never do post the supply lists with my cards on here. I really should, but sometime they can be pretty time consuming to type out. If you ever wonder what products I use just shoot me an email, and I would be happy to let you know.
Well, that is it for me tonight. Hope I didn't overload you all. Hope you are having a good week so far. Thanks for stopping by!
