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!!!

Happy Valentines day card for Hubby start to finish

I made this card from a Close To my Heart paper collection called Roxy and a CTMH stamp set called Cherish the Day and punched it out with an ek Success punch, for the flourish, I used a Cherry Lynn Designs die and black card stock.  The strip at the bottom is punched out with a Martha Stewart's boarder punch. I made the flower from Bazzill card stock, added a satin leaf that I colored with olive vine glimmer mist, and then added some black satin rolled flowers by offray and a couple of rolled rose buds from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I'm including the video and it will give you any further information like the cut sizes etc. Don't forget to stay turned to the end of the video to see my first attempt at art journaling.  Thanks for stopping by today and having a look at my card. and I hope you enjoy the video. Hugs, Amy k
