Hand-stamped images (and words) with a few parts filled in with ink pads and a water pen.
The past two days I have spent some time making cards. This is one of my all-time favorite paper-crafting activities. How can I resist mixing and matching papers, stamps, and cut-outs? I can't! There is just too much fun to be had.
I had previously cut out the mini cupcakes with my Cricut for another project, so they were left-overs. The gifts & bows were cut out by hand after stamping the images on the back-side of the patterned papers.
So, I made a big mess. Thankfully, I have my wonderful craft area to work in now. Plus, I was able to leave my mess out last night and clean-up after I finished up today. Before, I was always hesitant about doing that. My kids are old enough to leave most of my things alone without asking first and my dog seems to have mostly outgrown the "eat anything & everything left out" phase. Yay!
Here's some of the cards I made:
My name is Candie. Many labels describe me including wife, mom, friend, and independent consultant. However, alone, none of them capture all that I am or love and there are too many to list. Some of my likes include cooking, crafting, and creating. Reading, camping, and spending time with my family also bring me joy. I love my life...
