wedding card

two hearts punched out, embossed with swiss dot folder....made the groom's heart to mimic a tux.  a few buttons, clear dew drops and a script embossed nestie label...and a simple wedding card is born !  the tulle flecked with gold adds my favorite aspect....BLING !  saw this idea on several cards on splitcoaststampers.com.  love that site.

easy poppy

here's an easy poppy card......i cut one scalloped circle with my SU punch.....rolled and rolled and rolled it till i was able to separate it into two layers.....peeled it apart and then made a 1/4 hole in the center of both
i used a small piece of grosgrain ribbon, pulled threads at either end to fray it....the ribbon was yellow, so i colored it black with a sharpie pen.  stuck that through the middle of the flower and anchored it and smooshed the flower till it looked like a poppy. then i stamped a stem and a little leaf.....popped the poppy on.  sentiment from mega messages (PTI) with a red rhinestone for bling.....the focal image is placed on cream cardstock with the edges distressed and inked.  red dot paper from PTI itty bitty dot paper. 
finished card is 4x4 inches

pretty butterfly

this technique was "smooshed tissue on acrylic".....i stamped the butterfly in stazon black ink on a piece of acetate.....then set it aside to dry for a few minutes. then i dropped some blue reinker on the backside of the image and smooshed the color around and then crinkled up wrapping tissue and placed in right on the inky surface.

gives a watery background for the butterfly.  two scalloped circle nesties sit on a flocked butterfly background....got that 12x12 stack at Michaels.....really interesting paper...from Anna Griffith.  the large, poofy sheer ribbon finished it perfectly

re worked cards

looking through my stash for cards to donate to the local ronald mc donald house in charlotte,  i found a few cards in need of a "fix up"

this bloom is made of circles folded to make petals....the background is made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the stem is stitched with sparkly green ribbon. the old card had the hot pink base and flower on a pale pink card...it seemed lost.
when i  popped it on a springy green i think it went from ho hum to happy....

punched puppy

saw this idea on a SU site...i used the small oval, large oval, scalloped circle, word window and 1 1/4 circle punches. i sponged all layers with creamy carmel ink and used a nifty paw print ribbon in the bad.... he's a cutie.

more 4th of july

Cuttlebug stars folder makes the red and blue backgrounds....this started out as something else, but i goofed, so i used the torn pieced cardfront to cut a nestie scalloped circle for a focal piece.  the butterfly is a SU punch, the little stars a judith stick punch...a bit of blue sparkle foam is the butterfly's body.....

more 4th of july

in this one i used the SU ornament  punch to make the fish.... patriotic little guys....the white background is made using the cuttlebug stars embossing folder, the blue is cardstock from a Sam's pack....foam stars cut with an original sizzix die....love their silly eyes.....the lips are made with a small heart punch (SU) and the fins from a SU circle punch cut to provide three bumps.

shows that horizontal stripes make you look fat !!   yikes, i need to remember that.....

4th of july cards

i am probably among the few that sends 4th of july cards....but i love to make them.  this year's are sparkley....here's a few.  (not one is the same of course)
i used the SU ornament punch for the vase....and the 5 petal punch for the flower.... sparkle foam in the flower center.  the butterfly is a martha stewart punch.  the background is made using the sticks CB embossing folder on crisp white cardstock.
