Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

enjoy the journey birthday card

I wanted to share this latest card of mine with you all today. It's a very colorful card but it's for a lively young man so I hope he likes all the color. I made this card for my Sister inlaws' boyfriend, Andrew. I used a texture fade for the background piece and then colored it with three colors of glimmer mist in a blue, yellow and a red. I used a sizzix die cut for the top piece. I colored it with my distress inks in wild honey and distressed the edges with walnut stain. I stamped the images and sentiment with my Tim Holtz stamps in jet black archival ink from Ranger. I finished off the card with a little ribbon knotted on the side, I hope that Drew really likes this card; I know I had fun playing with the colors to make it. Thanks for stopping by.
