More Cardmaking

I have been in a cardmaking mood this summer. I have not bought any new stamping/cardmaking supplies in quite a while. I only used Stampin' Up stamps in these cards. I think almost all of my Stampin' Up sets are now retired. Last year, I gave away 58 stamp sets and I still have too much stuff in my craft room. All of the ink pads I use are also from Stampin' Up. I love to use Stampin' Up cardstock, it is so thick and the colors are beautiful. Here are are some of the cards I have remembered to take pictures of:

6-year-old boy birthday card - I love the style of this card. A few simple cuts allow you to thread a ribbon through the back to make this a motion card. The plane "flies" across the sky to deliver the birthday packages. Stamp sets: Toy Box (plane), Loads of Love Accessories (packages), Lovely As A Tree (tree)

I made this card for my husband for our 9th anniversary. There are nine hearts stitched together with sewing thread. I made the two puzzle pieces for him to show that even though we are very different we fit together perfectly. Stamp sets: Sketch It (big heart), Carte Postale (words).

4-year-old girl birthday card - This card turned out so cute! I love bug stamps! Stamp sets: Love Bug (bugs), Party Animals (cake), Teeny Tiny Wishes (happy birthday). 

Thank you card - I think this card turned out a bit boring, but I got to play around with my border punch and Big Shot texture plates. Stamp set - Wonderful Words.

Thanks card - This card is made with silver cardstock and silver embossing, it looks better in person. 

11-year-old boy birthday card - I dug through my craft supplies and found my crimper for this card. The piece of cardstock behind the colored balls is crimped for added texture. Stamp set - Have A Ball.
