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!!!

Thank you Tag

I made this tag back in April or May as a thank you to my Mom for the time she spent helping me out after my sugery.  It was simple to make and I got to use my new distress stains and then I wrote her a thank you note on the back.  the script paper is from Hobby Lobby, the stamps are from Hot off the press and I used my Prisma color pencils and copic markers to color in the stamped images, the white felt rolled flower is a Sizzix die and the pink rolled flower is made with Bazzill card stock and cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge for the cricut. the top note and oval shape are a punch from McGill. for the pink on the top note shape and the lacy martha stewart punch are colored with the spun sugar distress stain from ranger.  I added lots of colorful fibers to the top.  I also wanted to mention that I used the cricut to cut out the tag shape from thin chipboard and then again from the paper and then adhered them together.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my project. Feel free to leave me a comment. Hugs, amy K
