OWH bunches of cards

OK! Let's see how many blogger will let me post for you. I made a bunch of birthday cards today - they are all alike. That is a first for me. I took a photo of them on my worksurface. They may be all alike, but they are definitely not the same colors! Had a blast with my Tim Holtz distress inks. Everytime I do things like this, I find combinations that I never would have thought of! It's just so much fun to get so very messy. I used those card creator dies again and cut a bunch of tops, then embossed them - this is a cuttlebug folder. Thought I needed to add just a touch, so they each have a tiny flower on pop dots.yes - there are 8 of them!! And here is one left over from the last post:
This saying I stamped ages ago and it was just in a box with some other stuff. Figured while I was adding strips of paper, I might as well "frame" this. Those butterflies are really sequins I found ages ago . They are very shiny and all kinds of colors even though two of them look black, they aren't! I kind of like this arrangement and may just do it again on purpose, next time!
This one was done entirely with that card creator (well almost). I had used these papers on a scrapbook page and figured that I could make a card from the leftovers. The smile is a stamp that I punched out after stamping with a circle punch. Thought this whole thing went together like a breeze!
This one is another Tim Holtz distress ink creation. And while I was at it, I colored some cardstock with the direct ink pad to paper and cut it out with a butterfly punch! Can't get over how quick this one was also!!
This is the last of the paper stack I made and I also stamped and copic colored the center square. It is bright and I did enjoy doing it. No blending at all since this was so small. I even added some dashed lines which I don't really like to do with a pen, but I did. Hugs to you all, I will be posting several birthday cards for family (as soon as I get them made!). I am so far behind, oh well!! Hugs again, Barb F

You did a beautiful job on your cards, Barb. I especially like the first cards, the birthday cards. They seem so simple, but really beautiful. I'm sure the troops are going to love sending those out. I also make cards for OWH, and feeling the pressure...lol!
