Masculine Cards

Thought I would share some masculine cards today.  Would love to hear what some of your favorite ideas are for making guy cards.  Attach a link to your comment if you have some on your blog you would like to share.
Deer card was embossed on a printed paper and chalked.
Geese were embossed on paper made by sponging craft inks.

Here are a few more cards made from 3D sheets by Nikky of Rubber Stamp Therapy.  Lots of fun to do!

Color Fusion

Thought I would add a few cards that I've made blending colors.  These were lots of fun and it is amazing what color combinatons you can blend together.  Tree/deer image from Stampin' Up!'s Nature Silhouettes and the Toi Toi grass stamp is from New Zealand.

Porcelain Flowers

Made a card for a special friend Mary celebrating a special birthday!  Pieces are punched out and coated in Crystal Lacquer.

Kelli Purkey  who has made some fabulous porcelain look pins and Jerri Jimenez whose work is beyond gorgeous has inspired me to try this technique.  They both are such awesome artists!

3D Fun Frog

Besides the floral punch, I also love doing 3D cards too! Recently did this fun frog. Showed a side view so you can see the matching paper inside too. Don't we feel how he looks some days??? It was one of CrafyNikky's sheets. If you haven't checked out her blog, click here. Allow some time, she shares literally hundreds of awesome cards each week. Thanks Nicole!

Blogging is not for the Indecisive!!!

So after a week of off and on, changing this or that, moving and shuffling, learning widgets, whatsits and whosits, I'm putting on a few more of my original floral cards.

Friend Marion recommended that I increase the size of the image enlargements, so attempting that even though now all the glue oozes, wrinkles, smudges and other unintentional embellishments will show up much better!!!

Speaking of Marion, check out her blog here to see her winning entry in the Spellbinders Pendant Contest! Woohoo, Congratulations Marion! Also check out all her other wonderful creations! Amazing!!!

Back to my beginnings in paper flowers:

Shaker Tag

More gold beads but in a shaker tag this time.

Thank You Card

Used little gold beads for the centers.

Before Cuttlebug and Nesties

Star Dreams paper is one of my favorite papers!

Have to start someplace!!!

Pink Flowers

Just the beginning and hadn't learned much about shaping yet!

Vellum Flowers

The white flowers were punched from a cloudy vellum.

Joining the Blogging World

Thought I would join the blogging world because I don't spend enough time playing on the computer! Ha!!!

Since making flowers out of paper is one of my favorite card making passions, I'm going to start with posting some of my first flower cards. Things have come a long way with so many new punches over the

For this one, found some great embossed paper and used a little yellow chalk on the ivy leaves.

Oh my, brings back memories. That first time I put the paper shaper tool to a punched piece of paper and the flower petals magically curled up! I was hooked!!!
