3 Cards from 1

This was the first card I made from the papers I picked out. I colored the image which is a digital one from Some Odd Girl. I just think she is adorable! The greeting is cut out from a paper pack! Here are the copics I used:E00, E11, E33, E35, E39, E29, E31, R20, B02, BG000. I don't often cut the images out anymore, but I did this one. That bow is ready made but if you check out Jennifer McGuire's stuff, she has directions awhile back.  So taking the papers, after doing the inside of the card just a little, I made card no.2. I didn't use all the papers I chose on this one but quite a lot of the embellishments I picked out in advance.
All of these cards are standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. They all used the same blue cardstock - why not?  So this second one I cut out that cute little ticket and mounted it on some of the brown. This one has lots of stickles but not nearly as many as usual. I use hemp for twine - the ball I bought way back when will probably go to my grave with me! It's not easy to use but I am determined to use it. I have to glue it in place one way or another or it sticks out. I actually used this one and made a gift card holder on the inside and wrote, did we get it right? I also used a new die set I bought from stampingscrapping.com called card creator. Wow is that great! No more having to measure, just pick up a die, see if it looks right and cut it out! It's perfect, making it so easy to mount on your card!

And here is the 3rd card. You can see I made really good use of that card creator! I did the center rectangle using a Kristina Werner technique that I fell in love with. Now you can see all the papers I picked out. I love this one so much especially since it has all of the papers on it and guess what - no stickles!! I used Tim Holtz Vintage photo on edges on only 2 & 3. And I didn't have enough paper left to think about!! These are for a class I am taking called Kick Start. It is another onlinecardclasses.com. and I am loving it. I am kind of an organization nut and this one is right up my alley! These cards are just so simple to do and took no time at all because I used Jennifer McGuire's trick of making all of them at the same sitting. Once your mojo is up and running, why not use it? Well, I did and hope you enjoy them! I also did a super fun scrapbook page which I will try to post real soon. Hugs to you all, Barb F

I love these cards. You always do such nice ones. You really inspire me with your copic coloring. I am just starting to try and use the markers and it is so wonderful of you to let us know what you have used. I only hope that someday mine will look that good. Thank you so much for sharing-I love to see what new things you come up with.
