Time Flies card

I was able to get around enough to get pictures taken of the cards I made over the weekend and figured I might as well try to get them scheduled to post. I have a doctor appointment this afternoon. I just want to make sure I am not contagious since I work in close proximity with my clients and don't want to make anyone else sick.

Consumer Crafts was nice enough to send me the new pack of Coredinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgia Collection to try out. When I saw the cardstock I knew I wanted to try out the clock themed stamps I got at CKC in Houston. My friend Linda, aka LGuild, and I have looked at clock stamps and we were too cheap to buy any that we had seen. When I saw these and they were only $3 for the set I had to get them, and of course get a set for Linda as well! The stamps are Kelly Panacci clear stamps and I am not sure where you might be able to find them now as they are copyrighted in 2008.

This is the first card I made from the set.

Supplies Used:
~Cricut Expression
~Cricut Cartridges - George, Art Philosophy
~Tim Holtz Lost and Found paper stack
~Coredinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgia Collection
~Kelly Pannaci stamps
~Memento Ink
~Stampin Up background stamp
~Stampin Up border Punch
~Cat Eye Ink

While the colors are more feminine I thought it could be used as a card for a man as well. While making this card I actually was thinking of how fast time passed while I was in Houston visiting with my friend Carmen and was thinking this would be a great little card to send someone after staying at their house. I did the sentiment on MS word.

I took the close up shot so you could see the clock a little better. I used a background stamp before stamping on the clock and hands. I think it added a little more interest to the clock. On the sentiment tag I taped down one end and then used a pop dot on the other to give it a little dimension.


  1. I really like the look of this one! You sure spend alot of attention on detail. I just love seeing your creations each day!

  2. This is a really great card Okie! I really like that clock and the distressed stamp you used..... IT does add interest.... LOVE IT! :o)


  3. Is the background stamp you used what put the crackle effect on the paper for the clock?

    Cute card! And I really love that set of stamps!

  4. Beautiful card with a very true sentiment. Reminds me of my Senior year in HS. In our final exams one of the essay topics was a picture of a clock on a window sill. Now write a 600 word essay in about 40 minutes. I remember sitting there sweating bullets, because all I could come up with was "throw the d... thing out the window and watch time fly"! I did manage to pass English lol

  5. Great card! Love the paper! TFS. Good luck at the doctor. Feel better.

  6. LOve your clock stamp. Makes a great card. Hope you feel better soon. The weather changes mess with our bodies so bad don't they.

  7. Soooo Lovely. Gotta get those papers. Smooches... Felicia
