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!!!

Card made for Jesenia Pagan over on the Craft Hole on Fb.

I know I'm about a month behind on these blog post but I still wanted to share the card I made for my swap partner, Jesenia Pagan on The Craft Hole Facebook group for the Dollar/pound swap we did last month.  We were not required to make cards for this swap, it was for an altered item that you purchased at the dollar store (If you live in the US and the pound store if you live over seas).  I just don't feel right sending something in the mail without a card to go with it.  Call me crazy, it's just how I roll lol. This is the first ever easel card that I've made.  I really like the paper line and the stamp.  I loved those stamps when I saw them and I bought three different sets but I can't use them on my typical everyday card so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to use them finally.  Here's a pretty good shot of the front of the card.
This second picture shows the inside of the card too and you can read the sentiment.  I handmade most of the flowers for this card out of the designer paper.  The patterned paper was from My Minds Eye and I used a Sizzix doily die for the black part and heat embossed the sentiment in white.  I used a couple of Martha Stewart boarder punches, one on the front and one for the boarder on the inside. This is a 6x6 inch card made from heavy black cardstock.  I edged all the papers with black soot distress ink from Tim Holtz.  The label shape on the inside is a punch from the paper studio by Hobby Lobby. I believe to sign this card, with the inside being all black, I just used my white gelly roll pen. 

That's all for this post, thank you for stopping by the blog.  I hope you are all having a great Friday and the weekend is off to a wonderful start.  I hope you all have a blessed day and I'll maybe be back tomorrow with another card.  I've got to start catching these post up lol. Talk to you soon, till then, Much love and hugs, Amy K.
