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 Mother in law

I made this card for my Lovely Mother in law, Judy.  She's just the sweetest lady in the world and she has so much love to give.  She and I didn't always see eye to eye but all that is behind us now and we have found that we actually like/love each other very much.  I can turn to her for anything and I know that she will be there ready and willing to do whatever is within her power to help me out.  She is one of the people I keep near and dear to my heart.
     To make this card I started off  with designer paper from My mind's Eye, " lost and found" paper stack.  I layered the background pieces and distresses all the edges with worn lipstick distress ink from Ranger. For the die cut circle piece I used Die-namics "dizzy doily" die. The punch used for the sentiment piece is from ek Success. I also used a stamp from studio g in maraschino cherry by powder puff chalk inks. The flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts, its the foundations puffy white daisy blooms and I colored them using glimmer mist in black cherry, electric blue, and juniper.  I used a Prima flower center for the flowers. To finish the card off I added a piece of vintage lace to the bottom and some Martha Stewart seam binding in pink.
     That's all for this post. thanks for stopping by today. I've got more cards to come in the next few days to keep an eye out.  Talk to you again soon. Hugs, Amyk
