Ugly card time and a beautiful RAK!

Howdy all! Welcome to this episode of 'How to make an ugly card!' Just CASE me and your done, haha! At least the two cards I made yesterday are to me...bleh...but, I said a long time ago, gonna post even the ugly ones, lol! Soooo here they are:

This is my attempt at a monochromatic card that I always struggle with. I used SU!'s river rock cardstock and some paper and ribbon I snatched from my sister. I also kinda sorta followed Taylor's sketch challenge found HERE, but not gonna upload it though, lol. I loved the sketch, just not my card!
Card Details:
Stamps: Clear Expressions by Hampton Art
Papers: SU! cardstock and DP (I dont remember the name of it, will have to ask Kelli
Accessories: brads, ribbon, scallop corner punch, spiral paperclip, paper piercer tool and pad, pop dots.

This card I made for my SIL's birthday. I also snatched this stamp from my sister Kelli, lol. Hey, she got lots of my stuff too!! ROFL! This card, well, it's not so bad, just the picture doesnt do it justice, you cant see the sparkly I added to the water and it just looks bad here in the pic, the water does to me.
Card Details:
Stamps: Hero Arts and sentiment from Seeing D's
Papers: SU! cardstock
Accessories: prisma pencils and OMS, postage stamp edge punch from EK, paper piercer and pad, ribbon

I dont know why I was having such a hard time taking pictures of all of these cards today, but even this card I got in the mail, it's actually gorgeous but my picture taking just can't capture it good enough!! Here it is:

My beautiful friend Donna sent me this, it is sooo gorgeous! The colors are so rich and warm and the layering of the little flower...well, it just rocks! She sent me this, giving me a hug for what I was going through with Freckles...she understands and I cannot tell you how much this card meant to me and it came on a day that I was having a hard time with it again! Thank you so much Donna, I will treasure this always! I just wish I could have got a better picture of it, for some reason, it just wouldnt capture how you did the words in all different colors to match, it would just look like blank white space, lol! And boy, I need to get out the lint roller on my black drop piece there...haha!!

Ok, thats it for now! I hope you all are having a wonderful relaxing weekend. I plan on doing nothing myself but make a card or two! Catch up on some and my challenge addict
p.s. Nobody guessed 100% correct YET on THIS POST! So I will give it till tomorrow and then tell!

Cat I think these cards are gorgeous! I love the softness of the first one and the coloring on the flowered one is great! My pottery teacher used to lecture me when things would come out of the kiln and I would hate them because they didn't look like I expected them to look. She said that someone would love them even if I hate them, and she was right! You just keep on creating! ~chris

Oh Cat, you silly girl! Your cards are nowhere even remotely near ugly! They are beautiful! I sure am glad I stopped in tonight, because you needed a cyberhug! Keep on posting - I love coming to your blog! Stop by mine sometime as well - I love having visitors! Cyberhugs from Missouri!

We are always our worst critic. After reading your post title, I scrolled down trying to find the ugly card, but there wasn't one. I really love both and Donna's. They're all gorgeous!

Shirley said...

Both of your cards are gorgeous as always. Your friend's gift is beautiful too!

Nancy said...

Nope...don't see any ugly cards here. I DO see the sparkly in the angled it such that you get a glimmer. I like what you did with the water.
