More TAC-a-licious Cards

Ok, maybe that was TAC-ky, but it's CAT-chy? ha ha ha...

I've been busy playing with my new stamps, you knew that! And I've just got to share.
On a sad note, there is a member of a group I belong to called Paper Wings that has cancer and they asked if members can make cards ~ so of course I wanted to. My DD came in and saw this card and said "Wow Mom. You sure have a lot of pink on there - and you know I like pink, but there sure is a lot of it". Well, I don't know if that was a goo or a bad thing??? But I know that pink cheers me up, so I had to use a lot of it!

I used Pink Passion for the base card. I layered that with a piece of Rose Red (see, it's not ALL pink) and on top of that I added a piece of DP from the Brighten my Day collection, sponged Rose Romance ink around that layer and added a length of ribbon before adhering it to the card. From the same pad I also cut a circle out with my colozzle and added a Pixie Pink "rim" around it. I then stitched a straight line inside the circle. I didn't like just that so I then stitched a zig zag stitch around the outer rim and inner circle. I then sponged Rose Romance around the circle.
I stamped the sentiment from A Wittle Bug on to a piece of white cs and sponged Rose Romance around that panel and adhered that to the card. I stamped the little bee from the same set and colored it in with pencils. I punched that out with my 1 1/4" circle punch and punched out a 1 3/8" circle in Pixie Pink and glued that together. I stamped a circle from Circle Sampler with Rose Romance ink and punched that out with my scallop punch. I layered the other circles on top if it and used pop dots to adhere to the card.

I sure hope that it brings some joy to her day.

Another card that I made was for a dear friend Betty here in Kentucky. I can post this because she should have this card by now.
She is so sweet. Every time she stops by she brings something with her. Not that I don't appreciate it, I do! But she really does not have to.

Last time she stopped by she brought one of these cute little totes with her. One for my Mom and one for me. I use mine all the time. In the evenings I sit in the living room watching TV with the family. Now, I'm not too fond of TV ~ there are a few shows that I like. But I just can't sit there and do nothing - so I "play". I put cards together, punch things out, or as you can see in the picture - yes I colored the indexing on my CD cases. Ok, maybe it has something to do with my OCD. But they look pretty now :) And this is a great way to haul things back and forth. Thanks Betty. OH and yes, the last time that she popped over she brought her Scor-Pal with her and left it with me to use!! How cool is that!! So, of course I had to use it on the card that I made for her!!

The base card is Only Orange. I then used the Scor-Pal to make the diamond shapes on the piece of Pumpkin Pie cs. I layered that on to a piece of Brilliant Blue and used my 1/2" circle punch to cut the corners, then I added orange eyelets and a length of ribbon before adhering it to the card. I stamped the pie from Kid Praises colored that with pencils, sponged Brilliant Blue ink around it, layered it on to a piece of DP from the Brighten my Day collection and used pop dots to add it to the card. It was a simple & quick card.

Ok, when I see dinosaurs I think of little boys. And this little dino looked so cute I had to color him! So I made a couple of "boy" birthday cards ~ I don't know when I'll use them, but they are made :)
The case card is Tempting Turquoise and I layered a piece of Old Olive and DP from the Brighten my Day collection to the top of it.
I stamped the image from Kid Praises and colored it in with pencils. I sponged that panel with Only Orange ink around that panel and layered it on to a piece of Old Olive cs. I took the Only Orange cs and made patterned lines with the Scor-Pal on it. I then added the dino panel to that.
It needed a saying ~ so I stamped the Happy Birthday from Everyday Events in Only Orange ink, punched it out with my word window punch and sponged Old Olive ink around it. I used my Round Tab punch to punch a piece of Old Olive cs then cut it in half. I layered that under the word window and then on to a piece of scrap left from the Only Orange cs that I used on the Scor-pal. After I glued that down I took my white gel pen and made some doodle dots on the Old Olive piece and I was thru.
Well, there is my rant for the day. I hope that you enjoyed these cards and that they bring you some sort of inspiration. Be on the look out for tomorrow! I am going to be making a card with the Stamp of the Month - Goody Jar.
Til then,
