Here is a card, that I wanted to share with you. . .yes, I have been making cards, while I was MIA!!! With this card I used construction paper for the tree and the leaves. I punched out a number of leaves. Tore the paper, to make it look like a tree. I used my alphbet stamps and stamp F A L L on different colors and used a square punch. I glued all of that on blue cardstock, then layered that on brown and then attached that to the green card.
Today, I am working on a Thanksgiving Day card and will post that soon.
Hugs and Prayers.

I don't recall where I got the green paper, but I wish I had gotten more! The leaves and berries are raised and feel like velvet. Here is the second card. First picture is the front of the card, For some reason the green scalloped edge doesn't show up well around the saying, but it is there. This shows you the inside of the card. How do you do the insides of your cards? Seldom do I leave them blank, but will if it is an order and they don't want anything stamped. I stamp at least one saying and at times I like to stamp an image either with Versamark or very light/pale color. Sometimes I will add a bit of paper that I used on the front of the card, on the inside.
May you have a relaxing week-end and a few minutes to get some ink on a stamp or two!

Here is a card, I made this afternoon. The sunflower is a stamp-n-stencil. If you haven't taken a look see, why don't you check it out. AJ has several and they are a lot of fun to use! I also, used a border punch, 2 different Cuttlebug embossing folders and 2 different sets of nestabilities. You don't have to have the ones I used. . .you can use different ones or none at all.
I hope this will give you some inspiration and you will take some time to play. For me, stamping and creating is great therapy.

The last time AJ and I were together, I stamped this Buck and would you believe, I just found it this morning?!? Well, I did and that's because, I getting a few things together for tomorrow. AJ and I have a date to stamp and visit tomorrow, the Lord, willing.
As you can see, this card is very simplistic. It doesn't take a lot of time or a lot of supplies. I stamped the image with black ink, stamped it one white paper, layered it on black and then put it on a white card.
Then I added 3 black dots. I hope this gives you an idea or two and you can get some ink on your paper. I'm sorry, I don't know the name or the number of this image. I can't find it in the catalog. Here is her company address.

I haven't done a lot of stamping, but I have gotten a couple of cards made and thought I would let you see. This first one is a Shy Bear, which I am crazy about! I'm sorry the scan doesn't show the clouds very well. The layout idea, for this card came from a couple of challenges I came across while surfing. On this card, I used glitter (pen), flowers/leaves, and Cuttlebug embossing folder.
This card is done with a stamp-n-stencil set, that can be found here. http://www.wood-n-paper-ink.com/m_29.asp?pa=m_29 Just click on the stamp-n-stencil set on the left hand side. There are many designs to pick from. This was my first attempt, first card, using a stamp-n-stencil set. This one is called Giraffe - P288. If you do order any, please let AJ, know that Inkyhive sent you. . .That way she will know stampers are seeing her product.

Here is one card, I made, that I wanted to share. The stamp image is from AJ's Country Stampin' and is called "Gone Fishing" After coloring it, I framed it with a nestabilities cutout so it looks like a picture. I used a strip of glittery paper that I punched one side with a scalloped punch and then layered it on some water looking paper, layered on black and then applied to the card.
I hope you like it and maybe it will give you an idea of a card to make for someone. I am hoping to stamp a card or two that is Fall in nature, but the past few days have been back to summer weather! Hot and humid. . . The leaves are beginning to change and a few have dropped, so maybe I will get in the mood, for I really enjoy making fall cards. Fall is my favorite season!
Hugs and Prayers,

On this card, I decided to cut the image into 3 parts and then layered it on a brown cardstock, trimmed around the edges and then attached them on a light brown card.
On this card, I kept the image whole, layered it on black and then attached it to the card.
I really like this technique. . .it is quick and easy and makes a great looking card, I think. I hope this will help you get some ink on those fingers and have some relaxing moments.
May you have a peaceful day.

I used the Argyle cuttlebug embossing folder and then I use 2 different color ink pads doing the DTP technique [direct to paper]
I have decided to use the other cheerleader card I shared with you last week, for my nephew's birthday. Since, I used red, white, and blue to color her in, I thought it would be a patriotic card. Thank you, for praying for him and the other soldiers, who are serving our country and helping others.
God Bless, ~~Inkyhive
I hope this will give you a lift to create something today. ~~Inkyhive

I still would like your input on what you think the cheerleader card could be used for.
If you have any problem let me know and I will see what I can do, though I must tell you, I am not real computer savvy!

All 3 stamps used on the front of this card are from AJ's Country Stampin's. I have had the flower and hello stamp for quite some time and the watering can image, I stamped in May, while I visited Amy. Hopefully, in the next month we will get together, but lately our calendar's just don't connect! :D
This time I didn't follow a sketch, I laid the cream card stock on a strip of brown card stock which had been sitting on the yellow and I thought it went together. I stamped the flower using a yellow ink on the yellow paper and then the hello is stamped with brown ink. I had used a lace punch on the brown paper, but I didn't like the look, so I'll use that paper another time. I seldom throw away anything, though I really do need to go through some of my piles and discard some. I mean how much can one really use??? It's one thing IF you use it up. . .however I have 'several' boxes of pieces of paper and stamped images from at least 7 years ago and I keep saying I need to use it up, I have more than enough odds and ends! I do believe I have come to the conclusion it isn't going to get done, so perhaps I should look for someone or ones to share it with.
Looks like it is a nice day, so I think I will go outside, at least for a few minutes and enjoy the beauty, the Lord has brought my way, today.
May you have a wonderful Saturday.
In Christ alone my hope is found; He is my Light, my strength, my song.
I will be back later, when I get another card or two to post. I wanted to thank everyone who has written me, wishing my Birthday wishes.

Today's card, I am sending to my nephew who is serving our country. The bear is from an envelope, that I received recently. After, cutting it out, I layered it on blue, then white, and finally red paper. I then put it on white cardstock and stamped the "Thinking of You". That stamp is by Sweet Impressions and I really like the font. It is my favorite thinking of you stamp, because of the font.
As some of you know, my birthday was yesterday and Mr. Inky and I went to the Milwaukee Zoo. We had a nice day and the Lord provided nice weather. It wasn't too hot and while the Zoo was open there was no rain, no thunderstorms. Driving down, we had some heavy rain for a little over an hour. At times we had to really slow down. Since we weren't sure what the day was going to bring we had back-up plans, but once we got to the Zoo, the rain stopped so we decided to stay. Another time we will go to The Domes. They are 3 buildings shape like beehives and they house plants. One is arid, one is rainforest, and the other one changes, depending on the season. It was nice to be in Milwaukee for fun and not at the hospital because of my knee :D
May you have a wonderful evening.
hugs and Prayers,
May the mind of Christ, my Savior live in me from day to day;
By His love and pow'r controlling all I do and say.

As you can see I didn't complete it yesterday. I'm not sure what saying I will add it to. I bought the stamp at a rummage sale a few weeks back and it came by itself. I haven't decided who I am sending the card to, thus I haven't decided what I want it to say! Could be a birthday card, could be an encouragement card, could be for a soldier. . . if you have any ideas, please leave me a comment.

Here is one of the cards I made. I decided to use this stamp, as I had been working in the yard. This stamp is by AJ's Country Stampin's
I used chalks to color and then sealed it with hair spray. I'm sorry the sky doesn't show up well. It is more vivid in real life.
Here is a card I made several years ago, long before I saw this sketch : ) This is also the first card I ever submitted to a magazine AND the first card of mine that was published! It was in VSN (Vamp Stamp News). I'm sorry, I can't recall the issue, at the moment.
The bandaide is by CowTown Stamps http://www.cowtownstamps.com/
and the cute bear is by Morning Star http://www.morningstarstamps.com/
Well, it is time for me, to see what I am going to do today. I hope you are enjoying the summer and you are getting some time to stamp.
