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 14 year old young lady

This is another card made for a member of our church.  She's a young 14 year old by the name of Elizabeth.  She's a beautiful, bright young lady and a delight to have as a member of our church.   I made this card using the 4.5x6.5" mat stack from The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby by the name Olivia's Sweet Shop.   I used three of the different patterned papers and used my scalloped circle and top label punches for the two layers.  For the flourishes I die cut white card stock with the fanciful flourish die from My Favorite Things and the sentiment is die cut with a Spellbinders die from the Radiant Rectangles set.  To color the flourishes I just used my foam blender tool from Ranger and Squeezed Lemonade distress ink and colored the white card stock.  I stamped the sentiment with Ultra Pink shadow ink from Hero Arts.  I added a resin flower and then finished the card off with some vintage buttons from my collection.  I distressed all the edges with Tea Dye distress ink.  This card came together very easily and quickly.  I had fun playing with this patterned paper.  I plan to use it again soon, hopefully the next time I have to make a card for a young member of the church.

That's all  I've got for today, I hope you all enjoyed this card.   I can't promise but I hope to get another card up this week.  I have lots to share with you. Till next time, be good to one another.  I'll see you again soon.  Much love and hugs, Amy K.
