How about some cards?

What a fast weekend. It seems like whenever I have an extra day I cram so much in to make the most of it. We had a couple of barbeque's in the backyard. I baked. I worked on my first assignment for the photography class I am taking with Maggie Holmes. I actually opened my camera manual and started reading. I made lots of cards and a few layouts.

I did not open my new Stampmaker. Something to look forward too, I guess.

Our ScrapTiffany assignment this week was Cardstock Only.  A while back I saw a layout using punches layered  for the background. I had wanted to do one like that, but when I sat down to work on it, the layout wasn't working out for me and I felt like making a card:


I inked the edges to make each one stand out. I want to try it on a layout too sometime soon.  There are so many fun things we can do with cardstock. Check out what the other girls did over at ScrapTiffany , and if you make a project based on the challenge share it by e-mailing it to Tiffany over at ScrapTiffany.

I have 3 nieces that have September birthdays. So I made a bunch of cards up yesterday for them and a couple more. 

Using up some Cosmo Cricket Material Girl this one is for my niece turning 3...


Love the girls on the chipboard, but hadn't had a place to use them....


And using up some of the girlie stuff in Studio Calico's Summer Camp kit and add-on's I made this card...


and one for my card stash from leftovers scraps....


Another from the same kit for a friend that has been sick.  The butterfly's are the punch outs from the new EK Success jumbo butterfly border punch. I didn't like the way the border looked so I used the negative instead and used my EK bracket border on both sides of the strip to make the border.


Yippee for short weeks! Have a great Tuesday!

Beautiful cards! You are right, some things just don't work on layouts and are perfect for cards!
