I'm loving cards right now...

So, I'm not much of a card maker. But Jen over at Itty Bitty Scrap Shack makes amazing cards and has been inspiring me to try some of my own! Just thought i'd share a few!

Here's one using Crate Paper and my new circle stamps from Inque Boutique:

I made these using my Autumn Leaves circle saying stamps:

This one I used Fancy Pants paper and I broke out my watercolor pencils and blending pen to create those stamped flowers on the side. My first attempt at something like that:

I used Piggy Tales paper and a CTMH set of stamps that were brand new, hadn't opened yet! I embellished a bit with stickles:

One more card using the Itty Bitty kit from February. I used glimmer mist on the chipboard for that special sparkly touch!!

I loved making these and will probably continue to make cards. I love using my stamps and making a project that only takes a bit of time. Still figuring out what sizes to make and how to embellish, for some reason the small canvas intimadates me! Check out Jen's card challenge blog, Caardvarks. It's pretty cool with lots of inspiration!!
