My first solo cards!

Now, don't laugh TOO hard. These are the first card designs I came up with on my own, those so many years ago. I like to think I have improved muchly! Sigh, I wish they would bring back Baroque Burgundy and Forest Foliage. I like them a lot better than their replacements, Handsome Hunter and Bravo Burgundy.

Stamps- Lovely as a Tree, not sure of the Christmas stamp
Paper- Forest Foliage, Night of Navy, Sahara Sand
Ink- Night of Navy, Forest Foliage
Accessories- non SU glue pen and glitter
Techniques- Sponging and Tearing

Stamps- City of David
Paper- Baroque Burgundy, Brocade Blue, Very Vanilla
Ink- Baroque Burgundy
Accessories- Key Tag Punch
Techniques- Tearing and sponging


  1. I absolutely love the City of David stamp set and didn't get it when I had a chance. Now, I'm a SU demo gal so maybe just maybe someone out there might have a set to dispose of!

    Like your cards! Believe me, creativity only gets better as we go along!!!
    CYA in the forums!

  2. I think your first card attempts are great! You should have seen mine, I won't be posting them on my blog!! LOL

  3. I think they are great. I wish my first efforts had been like those!

  4. I agree with Diane, when I look at my first cards I am embarassed, sometimes even with the cards I do now

  5. I think they look great too! I love City of David and so glad that I bought it a few years ago. I've seen many beautiful cards done with it.

  6. Hey...nothing to laugh at....they are great. Much better than my first cards about 3 years ago. You do great work.

  7. These are great!! Especially being they were your first cards!!

  8. For "firsts", these are wonderful!
