My nerd card

I am a Lab Tech during the day so this set CALLED MY NAME!  I am going to give it to my husband.  I rarely make cards for him, I don’t know why.  He likes what I do.  I think it came out pretty cute.  I need to work on my coloring skills more but it gets the point across.  I got to use my Stampaholic on this one.  If you don’t have one of those, please check out my Favorite Sites page and get one from KatScrappiness.  She offers fast delivery and fantastic packaging.

Smoky Topaz and Blue Zircon

I made these for my mother.  Her favorite colors are brown and turquoise so this was as close as I could get.  I hope she likes them.  I made them in a style I like so I am not too sure she will like the same thing.  I am not a big fan of brown but the colors compliment so well.  smoky topaz and blue zircon

White opal and blue zircon

I have a ton of blue zircon crystals.  They are such a pretty color against the paler or pastel colors.  I had one more pair of white opal stones and they looked so pretty together.  I have to get the earwires for the gold setting.  I’m more of a silver girl, never been a big fan of gold so I have to make myself make things in gold. These are very simple, I guess I need to work on making more elaborate designs since I want to sell these.opal and blue zircon

Lakeside cheat card

This is another card I made about 4 years ago.  Sorry for the resolution.  It’s a complete copy of Michelle Zindorf.  If you remember my earlier post on her card, this uses the same method but you just cut that card front in strips. I used a script background stamp on the cardstock base and framed the tree image with brown.  I think I got 3 cards out of that one card front.  This was a birthday card for my husband.  It made me happy, he was so proud of it he showed it to all of his family.  He’s not the type to do that so I know I had done well that time.

Glitter Balloons

Ok, I will be honest and say I just hate this card.  The more I tried to do to it, the uglier it got.  I only think its fair to post my failures as well as the cards I like.  I tried to give the balloons “real” cords and that didn’t work out.  I wanted the washi strips to be random and fun but it just didn’t hit the mark.  Not my best work.  I don’t know if a bigger sentiment would have done better or a different color combo.  I give up on trying to figure out why I don’t like it.  glitter balloon.jpg

Scored flower sympathy

This card is intended to be a simple sympathy card.  I scored most of the card except for where the sentiment will go and added a black and white punched flower.  It’s a little too plain but I don’t know what else to add to it.  I hate when I have those moments with cards, when I know it needs something else but I’m not quite sure what it is.  You be the judge. flower sympathy
