Male and FemaleElephant Cards

Was playing around one day, and here are a couple of male and female cards I came up with. The Elephant stamp is from Hero Arts OWH Lil Hoot set.  The pattern paper is generic.

Wheel Cards

So, I got a couple of cards done this weekend.  There was a challenge (I could see myself getting hooked on these things 😉 ) over at Operation Write Home to make cards featuring a wheel.  Here are a couple I came up with…

One Card, Two Ways.

Hey guys, sorry this one is so late.  I had a bit of a sick day today.  Good job I managed to knock off a couple of cards last night… heehee!  I went with a clean and simple design with banners and arrows.  I found my inspiration HERE.

So, for this card I used my white card stock from staples.  Today’s pattern paper was NOT scraps! (who is proud of me? lol) although, I realized  this card would be a good one to make with scraps.  I used some Recollections card stock, one card is from the animal print set, and one from the chevron set.  The thank you was from and unknown stamp set, the ink was a black Memento and I used a crayola marker to outline the sentiment, and I popped it up with foam tape by 3M (which I am falling deeply in love with).

Wanna play?  You can check out what I am doing HERE, and leave a comment down below… I would love to see what you are working on, and what you are using… =D

And So It Begins….

Finally it’s Day one of Your Stuff… Use It! and I am pretty excited!  Here is my first card for card week…

ysui, day 1


I went a step further (but obviously you don’t have to) and not only used stuff I already own, but scraps.  As the pattern paper is from various old projects, I can’t name the brand, but I am willing to bet it’s Recollections (I use a lot of Recollections).  I used cream-colored card stock to layer my papers on, and the card itself is kraft card stock (I love the look of kraft paper, I really need to start using it more).  There is a piece of brown and white bakers twine tied on the top.  The house is a stamp (I believe it is a $1.50 bargain bin stamp from Michael’s as well).  I usually do my coloring in Prisma Color Pencils, but decided to step out of my box, and use markers.  My choices were Crayola Markers or Sharpies, so today, I went with the Crayola, pulling most of the colors out of the pattern paper.  I kind of like the effect, and will do this again 🙂

So, I have looked at my week, and would like to try and do a card a day.  But we will see.  And obviously this will not work on other weeks (and altered object a day? ouch!)  But, I do want to try to keep my daily blogging up, so on days I don’t have a Your Stuff… Use It! project, I will continue to blog as I have been to fill the gaps.

Has anyone else started with me yet? What ‘cha got? (please post the link to your pictures/blogs/ect. in the comments below, so we call all see)  and if you can, list what you used, because it’s interesting to me… 🙂

Come back tomorrow for another card…

PS- if you missed today, you can join in tomorrow!  All of week 1 is card week, and so goes until Saturday September 7th… (and remember, this is come and go as you like, you can do one or all, pick and choose… just drop in and let us know!)
