My Christmas cards/ Amuse Challenge Holiday cards!

YAY I had time to post my christmas cards!!! WOOHOO!!!

I made these cards for all of my pet sitting and dog walking customers!
I had this idea to use the Amuse stamps of course!!! hehe! And I really wanted to use the dog Spot, and have him wearing the tiny santa hat! Too cute!!

so this is what I came up with, I did something simple, so that it would be easy to make 30+ of them lol. I used up some of my christmas paper that I have had for 2 years, one of those paper packs. I am not buying those paper packs again, too much paper, and I never get to use hardly any of it LOL.

Thank you so much for looking!!! And I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy New Years!!!!!

Men/boy card swap!!

WHOAAAA I actually had time to make more cards, actually I didn't have a choice LOL!!! I signed up to do a card swap on the Amuse art stamps website, and the swap was to make manly cards or boy cards. They could be anything, birthday, hello, ect...
Let me tell ya, men/boy cards are not easy!!!! LOL I had to really think about what I was going to do, and figure out a certain layout for them.

I signed up for 2 spots in the swap, so I had to make 2 cards, 5 times each. Not too bad.

The first card I made was a little challenging, I knew I wanted to use the Pirate stamp by Amuse. I just wasn't sure how I was going to do the layout. I remembered on my Slice machine, I had a die cut of the Skull, so I knew right away I wanted to add that onto the card. I also had the word bubble on my Slice, So I figured I would use that to put the Sentiment in. Kinda cute!!! hehe! I also put 3 black buttons on the card, it's kinda hard to see in the pic.

The second Card I wanted to use the Amuse bomb, and You are Da Bomb sentiment. I really like these stamps, but never get the chance to use them.
I think this card came out awesome, I like the black and grey strips in the middle, and the inverted scallop circles, not too girly LOL. I used amuse Circles for the backround. I stamped the Sentiment on the inside of the card.

Thank you so much for looking!!!!

HOORAY!!!!!!!! A Christmas card!!

WOW!!!! I Finally made a card!!!! It's been like over 2 weeks!!!!! I can't believe I went that long without making a card!!! I'm not going to let that happen again!!! LOL!!!

SO, Here is a christmas card I made, The image is Memory Box, and so is the paper and sentiment!! I just love this christmas tree, super adorable. I just colored some of the swirls with red and green, and the clear ones I put icicle stickles on them, they came out really cute!!
I used my Nesties die to put the tree in, and I used a light lime green chalk around the tree, thought that would be pretty.
I added two snowflake brads to the card!
I just love love love this memory box sentiment!! sooooo cute!!!

Thank you sooooo much for looking!!!!

The green paper with the hollyberries on it is memory box paper. I used rickrack ribbon down the middle.
I figured I would add a couple of snowflakes on there.

Glenda's Random Amusing Challenge #43!!!

YAY!!! I finally made a card for one of Glenda's Challenges on

Glenda is always doing such fun challenges, but I never seem to get around to doing one, until now!!!! yay!!!

For this weeks challenge we were to "CASE" a card made by one of Amuses talented girls!! There are soooo many gorgeous cards to choose from, it was hard to choose.

I chose to "CASE" Lexi's card. Her card is posted on her blog: It is such a pretty card, using some of Amuse's new card stock and stamps.

I changed the look a little bit, because I don't have the new flower Amuse stamp she used. So I thought of something a little different. But I kept all of the same colors and I used the same sentiment, and some pearls over the sentiment. I think this card came out super cute!!! I'm pretty proud of myself for making this card!! I'm getting better at cutting out images and paper piecing, I love it!!

The green leaves on the flowers are popped up by using 3D dots, I thought it was a cute idea to pop them out, so that they look like they are hanging over the fence.

All the stamps I used are by Amuse, and all of the paper is Amuse!

Thank you so very much for looking!!!!!
