Just a few cards I've been creating. I love making cards with what's left on my table from other projects. The Game one is for a swap called "Games People Play". You can do alot with that theme..I took the easy way out. lol When I stamp images I also stamp a page full and what I don't use I put in a basket. So these came in handy for the quick 10 mins cards. If you want to see my other art, check out my other blog. http://www.romancingtheartistwithin.blogspot.com Have a creative day. Thanks for dropping by.

Over the years I've accumulated images from swaps on different groups, or saved bits of paper and other embellishments. When I rubber stamp I usually stamp a whole page but maybe only use 5 or 6 of the images and throw the remainder in my basket. So often I like to take all the leftovers and make cards. Here are somemore I've done this week.

March cards have started off with a great start. I've done 12 so far. I'm working on using up images, cut cardstock and printed papers in my stash. We always collect so many bits and pieces and then when we start a new project we grab something new rather than use up the bits. I have a draw of images that I had stamped previously or received in image swaps, so I want to reduce them and use them up. I guess you can call it my 'green' program. I have alot of flowers and eyelets kicking around too...so why not use them up. Make room for the new stuff coming on the market. I love new stuff.

My first card for March. I like to make monthly goals for projects I want to complete each month. I keep track of cards, ATCs, tags, inchies & twinchies, dolls, postcards, bookmarks, painted projects etc. I try very hard to reach my goals each month. I don't always do everything in each catagory, but do a variety of things each month. I love doing the blog challenges to.
This card is using SU cardstock and printed paper, brads etc. The pear is a very old stamp by Rubber Stampede. If you want to see my other blog
Enjoy the journey

I love the way this card turned out. Cardstock is Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Very Vanilla. The flower stamp is the Vintage Vogue which comes in clear mount or wood mount, all by Stampin'Up. The ribbon is SU Rich Razzleberry. Punches by Stampin'Up and Martha Stewart. Pearls unknown from stash.

Another card from the Wings of Friendship stamp set from Stampin'Up. I actually made this card last night. Again, I love the colour Crushed Curry cardstock, and I used Old Olive with it. The card itself was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder to add interest.

I love this set from Stampin'Up. It's part of their new Clear Mount stamp sets. I used Rich Razzleberry texture cardstock, SU printed paper in Kewi Kiss, Rich Razzleberry ribbon, Kewi Kiss and Rich Razzleberry inks. Kewi Kiss colour has been retired and it's too bad. I love that colour.

As you will notice I haven't blogged or added anything new in a couple of weeks. Time flies by and days seem to melt into one and I don't complete a thing. I have been painting and I will post pictures another day. But here is my two cards I created this week.

Here is a fun shaped card called an easel card. I saw videos and YouTube tutorials last year but never got around to doing one. So I did one today with the pieces of cs that was sitting on my desk left over from cards I made yesterday.
All cardstock, bird punch are from Stampin'Up. Used Spellbinder's nestibilities for the shapes and Martha Stewart border punch, plus an antique button to hold the card front up. I think I like those colours together.
