This is the last few days of the awesome paper special (Buy 3 get 1 free)--make sure you take advantage of this great special!! Here are some great cards to check out:
This super cute card is done with the Wintergreen papers and the Merry & Bright plus Happy everything sets. THe colors are certainly celery, sage shadow and whisper white cardstock and inks, along with stazon black.
The ribbon is soft sky double-stitched and the squares are punched with the 1 1/4 and 1 3/8"punches.
Another card with Merry & BRight. The paper is Dashing. The greeting is the So Many Sayings hostess set. Colors are StazOn Timber Brown ink, close to cocoa, and old olive. The paper is OLd Olive, Real Red, and Very Vanilla.
The ribbon is a great touch--wide vanilla gingham.
The little snowflake is punched out with the 3/4" circle punch and popped up with a silver brad in the center.
The white bow is perfect and the dots are poked with the mat pack. Really simple and pretty!
The 1 3/8" and scallop circle punches are used along with the ticket corner Punch. I also used my new Pomegranate Wide Grosgrain ribbon. (I have a new pack of ribbon that includes purely pomegranate, groovy guava, soft sky and basic gray in both narrow 1/4" and wide 5/8" sizes). Ask me for details if you are interested!!
This card is done with the set, Garden Whimsey and Fundamental Phrases. It uses the wonderful paper, Fall Flowers, which I LOVE!! The colors are soft sky, whisper white, and old olive. The dots are done with the mat pack and the greeting is done with the 2 circle punches and the scallop circle. THe little dots on the scallop are done with a white gel pen. THe brads at the center of the butterfly add a nice touch (and it is much better in person)...I had a hard time getting a good picture of this one!
A little soft sky ribbon ties it together!
This great card is also done with the Fall Flowers paper, and the Year after Year stamp set (plus so many sayings hostess set). The colors are Old Olive, Really Rust and watercolor paper. I colored the flower in with groovy guava ink, plus really rust and old olive using the aquapainters. A little sponged Soft Sky ink adds a great touch.
The pewter jumbo eyelet with a little soft sky double-stitched ribbon adds the perfect embellishment!
The colors are So Saffron and Certainly Celery Prints Cardstock. Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip cardstock. The hedgehog is stamped in Timberbrown StazOn and colored in with close to cocoa, celery, saffron and rose red. The three for you punch is used to do the cute little flowers and the Soft subtles and Rich Regals brads in the center are perfect.
The faux stitching around the edges of the card are done with the All in a Row set--and stamped in brown. It isn't too hard but I suggest starting on a practice scrap page first!
This awesome card is done using my favorite sets: True Friend (from the Holiday Mini Catalog), Define your life and Defining Alphabet. The printed paper is Apple Cider (from the mini) as well as Chocolate chip, River Rock and Very Vanilla cardstock, I added a hodgepodge piece with a hunk of chocolate wide grosgrain ribbon, The edges are sponged in chocolate ink. The Chocolate tag was made with the tag punch.
The card was really simple and looks great!!
