My Messy Desk and a Card

Hi Gals I'm back for today!  I said in my earlier post that I would be making cards but I only got one done before my desk got on my nerves.  You will see in the pictures below that I seriously need to straighten it up LOL!!!!  Here is the card that I made;


This card was made with a sketch from Mojo Monday.  The base is cream card stock and I used two stamp steps from Simon Says Stamps, they are from Impression Obsession Rubber Stamps and the first one I stamped was the Herringbone.  The stamp I used on top of the Herringbone stamp is from Impression Obsession Rubber Stamps called Spatter.  I love the effect it gives!  The paper pack is from Basic Gray called Fiction.  The sentiment stamp is Hero Arts, Petite Messages ( bought this stamp set from Michael's).  The brad is from Recollections Gemstone Brads from Michael's.

Now for the embarrassing pictures!  Try not to laugh to hard, especially if you relate!  As I told my husband it is an organized mess.  I know exactly where everything is!  Ok here are the pictures.





I know, seriously!!! LOL!!  Hope the rest of your day is a good one.  I am leaving for North Carolina to visit my grand babies tomorrow so I will talk to you guys on Monday!  Have a AWESOME weekend!

New Cards

Thank you for stopping by my blog to check it out!  Hope you enjoy what you see.  Here are some cards I've been working on.  I wish I had more done but this is a good start!  I used sketches from Mojo Monday and cards that Kristina Werner has done.  I will list what I used and the paper line under each picture.


All of my cards are standard A2 cards unless otherwise stated.  The paper line is My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy pack.  The sentiment came from www.cardztvstamps.blogspot.com and the set is called Heartfelt Wishes.  I used a cream card stock for the base of the card and ribbon from my stash.


On this card I used the same design as above but used My Minds Eye, So Sophie paper pack.  The sentiment also came from Cardz TV Heartfelt Wishes. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa. I used Kraft card stock and distressed the paper and base with Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.




This card is made from Kraft card stock.  I got this design from Kristina Werner.  I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.  I stamped the images in Memento Rich Cocoa. The name of the stamp set is from Inkadinkado Nostalgia set. I colored in some of the butterflies and dots with my Gelly Roll Medium white gel pen.



This is a design from Kristina Werner.  The base of the card is Kraft card stock.  The paper line is My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy pack. The sentiment is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp set Flower Friends.  The bird and flower stamp came from stamps I had in my stash. 

I hope you enjoyed the cards and should you have any questions or comments please leave them below.

Have A Fabulous Day!!!

Just Because Your Awesome Card

Hi All,

Back with another card I just finished.  I got this ides from Kristina Werner.  I LOVE her video's and try and make the cards she shows.  Here is her blog address http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/.  I highly recommend her videos!  This card was made with Kraft Card stock, I just received my Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain block (which I love)!  I stamped the image onto the card base with VersaMark and used clear embossing powder.  For the banner I used brown card stock.  The stamped images are from Simon Says Stamps and the name of the set is Flower Friend.  I stamped the images onto the brown card stock with Close To My Heart ink color Barn Red.  Then I used My Minds Eye, Stella Rose 6 x 6 pad for the yellow strip and the sentiment banner.  The sentiment was also from Flower Friend stamp set.  I really need to get faster at making cards if I want to make any money!  LOL!!!  So here is my card!



Hope you have a wonderful evening!!!

Happy Mail

Well today has been a busy day!  I had to take Joshua to the doctors then we went to Wal-Mart to buy him some new headphones and I took him to get a haircut!  Whew I'm tired!  But when I got home I found some happy mail!  Some stamps that I ordered from Simon Says Stamps and some yarn to make some more scarves!  Oh by the way Joshua is fine he just has some allergies.  So here is a picture of my happy mail.  I also finished a Die Cut order I had today as well so I tacked the picture on for you to see.  If anyone is interested in ordering one of my cards or some Die Cuts just email me at dawngdesigns@yahoo.com.  So here are the pictures!





Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Pattern Play card

Hi My Friends,


I know it's been a long time since I posted anything but life has just kind of gotten in the way!  I have signed up for a card making class and am loving it.  I never knew what to do with all of my patterned paper and I am learning so much!!  Here is a picture of 2 cards that I've made using the techniques I learned!  The first card design is from Mojo Monday http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/ and the second design is from Crafty Scrapper http://me-craftyscrapper.blogspot.com/.   Sometimes I can come up with a design but if I want to get anything done I just use examples.

TTFN  ((Hugs))
