Cards by the Half Dozen

Weekends are the busiest time of the week for me so even though I may have the best of intentions, I rarely get any stamping done then. However I do have some special projects to share with you to kick off the week.

My 13 year old daughter has been quite busy with my newest release of stamps and has created some special projects. She has been stamping since she was about five off and on but since she has gotten to middle school it has been more off than on. However, the two sets with the girls in them (Think Big and Berry Picking) have really intrigued her and she cant seem to stop making more cards, lol (Shameless enabling here: those of you who have teen and tweens should consider these sets for your girls!) So today I present 7 cards recently created by my crafty daughter. :)


















Now as an artist, there are some things I'd change on a few of these cards but as a mom, I'm just so proud! She made these all without input or supervision by me. The layouts are hers, as are the color and paper choices. I'm especially impressed with the cupcake card where she masked the 3 and popped the large one! And the 4th card, the girls with black hair...I may have to copy that little tab idea (though I will be compelled to center it more, lol). A few of the cards have her own handwritten sentiments on them but since her writing is so pretty you might not be able to tell. Maybe I'll get her to write a few greetings for a set in the future!
Please be sure to leave a comment or two as she is very excited to share and get some "Non-Mom" feedback.

These are really good! Great job for anyone, let alone a 13 yo :) You are a good influence, Mom. (Don't tell her I told you that!)

Wow! Kristin!!! Your daughter is very-very TALENTED! Her coloring skills and color choice is very beautiful! If you wouldn't tell that it was your daughter I would say it was somebody's work of adult stamper! I am very impressed! I love all of the cards!!!

Wow Kristin! She obviously inherited some of your talent! I am amazed that she did these all herself and she's only 13! She did a great job coloring and shading the reading girl.

Unreal!!! These cards are too cool! They all have such great colors and designs...If your daughter is doing this at 13, look out ladies...we WILL be on the back burner :)

These are fabulous, she sure is one talented lady. This is positive enabling I'd say.

WOW, Your daughter is a very talented young lady. Looks like she is going to be a wonderful cardmaker too. These are really good, she should be very proud of herself.

I think these are all great - you have sold me on the sets! I hope my DD will get into stamping more and more (she just turned 10). I am going to show her your work as inspiration. Thank you!!

These are all absolutely fabulous!! I can see that artistic talent runs in the family!!
I can't decide which of these cards I like the best since they are all so beautifully done.
