Now Open, Runaway Crafting Store!!!

The new store, Runaway Crafting Store (click here),  is up and running featuring my favorite cards now available for you to purchase and send to your friends and family.   Right now I have a wedding, greeting note, 2018 graduation, thank you and sympathy cards posted.  I will be adding more soon.  

Each gorgeous greeting card is cut, inked, assembled and embellished by hand.  Thus each one will have slight variations, but look like the card(s) pictured.   If you need something unique, special orders are available; just send me a private message with your request.

The cardstock we use is #60 and heavier, and whenever possible incorporate upcycled paper! 

Products used to make the cards usually come from these fine, amazing, creative, cutting edge companies:    Cricut, Cuttlebug, Reflections, Stampin' Up, Ranger, Tim Holtz, and Glitz, Vivian Vance.

All of these hand-made cards come with an A2 cream colored envelope (unless otherwise specified).  Shipping in the Continental United States is always free.

Please click on the Store tab above to view my new card line! 

Thank you for visiting my web page.

Baseball Birthday Card Sports Mania Cricut Peachy Keen Face Stamp

I used the baseball from Cricut Sports Mania card, melded it and sized it as large as I could on an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of white card stock.  Then I folded a red piece of paper in half, tucked it inside the folded ball card and hand cut out the inner liner.  Using a glue stick, I glued the liner into the card.   I used the largest Peachy keen face stamp in the full set and used a Distress Marker to highlight the cheeks.  Then I stamped Happy Birthday on the inside on a white oval. The stamp is from the "Happy Days" set from CardzTV.    I tied a little red and white bakers twine around the fold of the card.   I used a half fold card envelope to mail it.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.   Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Graduation Card made with Cricut Locker Talk

I melded (pictured below) the Graduation cap in Cricut Craft Room to make a folding card.   I sized this card to be able to cut it as large as possible on an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of black card stock.  I used a white pen and a straight edge to draw the front edge of the cap.    Number stamps with white Stampin Up ink.   
The second layer was the tassel which I cut out in a golden sparkle card stock.
I used "Happy Days" stamp set by Mary at Cardz TV "Happy Graduation Day" in other cards.     I wrote it by hand in the picture below with a white pen.  You can see how the card opens.
