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!!!

Birthday card for Wendy

This card was made for my BFF Wendy.  She's such a great friend and she never forgets a birthday so I wanted to make her a pretty little card to let her know how special she is to me on her birthday.

I made this card using the Basic Grey "Sultry" paper line.  Its an older paper line but still one that I enjoy very much.  I used stamps from Inkadinkado and used my Prisma colored pencils to color in the images. It uses Hero Hues chalk ink by Hero Arts in night to stamp the images.  I used my circut to cut out the circle and scalloped circle shapes.  I think you can find those shapes on the Alphalicious cartridge and I just used the gypsy to hide the hole cuts.  To finish it off I added some lace trim and some buttons.  I hope you enjoy this card today.  Thanks for stopping by.
