A Few Fun Cards!

24 04 2010

Well, I broke down and bought the MDS! Here are 2 of my very first projects.  I think they turned out pretty well. 🙂

I have to thank Melanie Schulenberg for her wonderful idea! I CASED this one!  She used the glaccine bag but I use the cello one. She also used a Bashful Blue 1/4″ ribbon through the knot in the ribbon but I left it off.

We made these “sidestep” cards in stamp club last month. I CASED the idea from Cheryl Adams.





Soft Suede Butterflies

I created these great butterflies using the soft suede technique. So easy but takes a little time. Awesome look to add to a card! This is on the list for my next stamp club. 🙂





Valentine’s Day Card

Here is a Valentine card I whipped up. I used a special technique in the center using a dryer sheet, glue and Dazzling Diamonds.





And Now a Christmas Pic!

4 11 2009

I can’t believe it’s time for Christmas cards already! 🙂  Putting this card together was a lot of fun. I used the cover paper, scallop edge and an inside bottom piece (not shown)  from the Christmas Jingle Scraping Set. The base card is Basic White. I used Real Red with the Ornament Punch. The stamp is from Holiday Best in the Hostess gift sets. I embossed it using White Embossing Powder and VersaMark. I punched out the Ornament window and then used one of the stars from the Icicle Rubons inside it. Whisper White 1/2′ Satin Ribbon complete the card.

The End of Summer

4 11 2009

The base card is used with Chocloate Chip stamped with the Autumn Harvest set in VersaMark. I used the scallop diecut in So Safron. The leaves are the new diecuts. Their colors were Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.  The striped paper is from the Autumn Traditions DSP.  The ribbon is Soft Suede Polka Dot 1/4′. I brushed the new Gold Shimeer Paint over the leaves and Scallop Circle. The center is the Sweet Centers cup filled with candy corn making the image resemble a sunflower with leaves blowing around. The stampset used was from Great Friend. Will have to update later. It was done using the Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White papers in conjunction with the Oval Scallop Punch and the Small Oval Punch.

Soft Suede was the base card for this design. Topped with Melon Mamba, So Safron, Whisper White and the DSP from Autumn Traditions. The Soft Suede layered with Whisper White in the center is stamped with the leaf in the Autumn Harvest set in Real Red. The ribbon is the 1/4′ Soft Suede Polka Dot. The base card was stamped with the leaf in Versa Mark giving it the water mark look.  I can’t remember the name of the stamp set I used for the message. I will post that later.

Falling Leaves

4 11 2009

I CASED this card from Tina Lesson at Stmping KZ. I just changed the colors. For the base card, I used Dusty Durango. Old Olive and Whisper White were the face pieces. The Eyelett Edge Punch is used on the bottom of both pieces. The two stamp sets that were used are: Flight of the Butterfly and Autumn Harvest. Colors were Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.  The 1/4′ Pumpkin Pie Striped Ribbon topped it off. 🙂
