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!!!

Handmade birthday card for sister inlaw
Ok, to tell you a little about the making of this card. I used just plain white card stock, I use Georgia Pacific white from Wal Mart. I then used Distress Inks from Tim Holtz and some Glimmer Mist for the green background. The blue print stamp is from Stampers Anonymous and it's called "Steampunk CMS 107" I just stamped it over and over repeatedly rotating it as I went to make the patterned background. For the sentiment I cut it out from cream card stock with the Styled Labels die from Tim Holtz and stamped it with a stamp from TPC studio and it's called Travel Collage. For the flower, like I mentioned earlier, it's handmade by me and I used Glimmer Mist in Rose Tea to color it with. I used a leaf from Recollections and the rose buds are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used a Tim Holtz game spinner and a couple of metal gears and on the seam binding bow I used a Trinket Pin. I used a strip of Tim Holtz wasshi tape along the side. Wow, that's alot of Tim Hotz products isn't it? Well, what can I say? He makes fun products. lol. I hope you enjoyed this card today. I certainly had fun making it. It really is one of my all time favorites. I hated to let it go but at the same time I was happy to give it to Jennifer. Have a wonderful rest of your day. I'll be back either tonight or in the morning with another card I made for Jennifer last month. Thanks for stopping by, Hugs, amy k
