Wow! It’s time for the 2012 Card Review! How much fun is it to go back through an entire year’s worth of cards and take a peek and what’s been accomplished and how my style has grown and changed! I had a TOUGH time picking only twelve favorites and it feels a bit like trying to pick a favorite child when picking my favorite cards, lol. But here goes!
This card was made in January as part of my Dirty Dozen assignment on SplitCoastStampers. I know I just posted it here not to long ago but it was actually made in January. It’s funny because I think this stamp is my all time favorite. When I was looking through my stash of pictures, I think I could have easily picked 4 to 5 favorites that use this stamp from Tiddly Inks, lol.
This card just makes me happy. I sent a whole package of these to my husbands great Aunt who is a nun. She’s always so happy to receive these cards and shares them with everyone near here. I always love to hear the stories she shares with me about who she sends them too. 🙂
This little card uses another Tiddly Inks image and I love the sweet colors of this and it’s one of a very very few amount of cards that I’ve ever sewn on. I need to pull my little machine back out and give it more love, lol!
This is a card I’ve never actually blogged but was part of my DD assignment (are you sensing a theme, lol). I am so happy with how this came out. I had a wild harebrained idea for what I wanted and it actually worked! I love the depth and layering of elements in this one. 🙂
I don’t feel like I’m all that great at CAS and I definitely have to work at that style a great deal. This card came together in a way that I just couldn’t be happier about and I frequently have the urge to go back and make more of these so it’s a definite fave!
I don’t think there is a happier combination than pink and Kraft, well that is unless you throw and adorable TGF Amelia stamp in there. 🙂
This card calls to me because I love that adorable bear image. He just makes me want to pick him up and give him a little squeeze!
This card is from my time with Verve as a guest designer. I love this card to pieces. That paper pad is one of my favorites ever and I really like how all the textures when together. 🙂
More pink and kraft!! This card showcases my first successful attempt at watercoloring a person so I’m super happy about that, not to mention it’s a super cute TGF Anya with a latte!
I love the layout of this one so much. It’s a layout that Amy Sheffer designed for the Deconstructed Sketch and I’m so happy with how the whole thing came together!
This sweet little card set surprised me. Like I mentioned before I struggle with CAS, mostly because I think I over think them A LOT. This little set just went together all on it’s own and has been such a useful addition to my card stash! You may be seeing more of this layout, lol!
This last one is from a new Taylored Expressions stamp set that I ADORE. I’m sure you’ll be seeing TONS of this stamp set around these parts, lol!
This card just may be my all time favorite thing that I’ve designed ever. So much feeling went into this card and I am so so happy with how it came out. This was another DD card that I just recently posted here but was made in February. 🙂
Well that’s it! 2012 was a pretty good year and it’s so fun to look back and see what I made in the past year! Just looking back through this set it seems I have an affinity for pink that I didn’t realize I had, lol. It’s fun to see patterns like that develop that I didn’t even know were there. 🙂 I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!
