Cards, Cards and More Cards!

This is a card I made for a friend's upcoming Birthday. I hope she likes it!
I used some patterned papers by My Mind's Eye (29th Street Market) and Scenic Route, Bazzill Basics Cardstock, Inque Boutique stamps (Flutter by Butterfly and Sentiments), and some brads and pearls.

I thought I would post some of my favorite cards that I recently made.

This one was made using some Inque Boutique stamps(Boutique Grunge) and papers Memoirs). Also, used some sheer ribbon and some crocheted lace.

I made the chipboard piece(Inque Boutique) and ribbon to resemble a buckle. Thought that would go good with the "You've Got Style" theme! Papers used are by My Mind's Eye and Inque Boutique. Stamps used are also Inque Boutique.

This one started out as a clear card but I have since displayed it on a easel in my home surrounded by family photos. The clear card is a piece of printable transparency by PrintWorks. The papers used are by Pink Paislee and Inque Boutique. The stamps, chipboard tree and quote are also Inque Boutique.

This was made with paper by Basic Grey and the blue paper is by Deja Views which I also stamped some images onto. All stamps are Inque Boutique. I also added some pearls, an old key and some ribbon. I inked, tore and distressed the edges of the papers.

This one is very special to me, because it is the first card that I will have published in a print magazine. It will be in the March 2009 issue of CardMaker. So I will have to take this down shortly, but decided to post it for now! The scalloped paper is by Pink Paislee and all the stamps are by Inque Boutique. I also won with this at Inque Boutique's weekly gallery contest. Unfortunately, do to the company now being sold to Darice, they have suspended the contest indefinitely. Let's hope they continue using the same quality rubber that Inque Boutique is known for!!

This one I posted before, but I just love it!

And last but not least, here is another card I made using Inque Boutique stamps. The papers are by DCWV.

Tomorrow, I will post some of my favorite Scrapbook pages that I made recently!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Hugs, Melissa
