Tent Topper flowers

Here's a card I made today.  It's called a tent-topper card and super easy to do.  You just make the card smaller than regular (I made it 4-1/2 x 4-1/2) and stand it up.  Then add something that extends overtop (but keep in mind the size of the envelope you're going to use). 

I am using Serene Silhouettes stamp set, ovals and deco labels framelits, banner punch and petite petals stamp set/punch!  Also wild wasabi ribbon and script embossing!

You made my Day - Vivid Vases

I made this card using the layout at Splitcoast.
The only colors of ink on this card are soft suede and pink!
I love this set and I love using it in a variety of ways.
Cute little clip too!  I bought them before Christmas and haven't used many of them yet.

Last 3 Christmas cards 2013

Yippee!!!! I am so excited!  I finished my Christmas cards for this year!
I looked back over my stash and I made over 45 unique Christmas card designs this year.  I started in July.  I enjoyed it but am looking forward to doing some cards for something other than Christmas!

4 lattice 4 Christmas

I am still needing more Christmas cards, so to be easy on myself I whipped up a few using the lattice die.  I sure love that die and find it super fun to create with.
I combined it with some patterned paper and black layers with a few simple embellishments.
I think I made all 4 in 20 minutes.

Best of SNOW

Some cards featuring a new stamp set I got called "Best of Snow". 
The first one I masked the oval shape and sponged inside, then stamped.
The bottom ones I used the window collections framelit shape and put a square behind it and used 3 embossed panels.

Small Poinsettia - framed

I made this card for our Queen this week.
I used 4 framelits to make the frame.  I cut out two of the "inside" of the Poinsettia in Joyful Christmas and layered them.
There are black glimmer brads on top and bottom.

Queen 180 - Christmas Poinsettias

Made this card in honour of our Queen #180 this week.  If you want to play along with the challenge that I host on Splitcoast.  It is called the Queen for the Day.  You can find the information here.

I love this Christmas set - Joyful Christmas!  This time I stamped with black ink on cherry cobbler paper and cut out.  Added some rhinestone bling!

Poinsettia in part

Playing with my new Christmas stamp set.  I versamarked the image first on the craft, then did another layer embossed on the red paper and cut out overtop.  I love this pretty set and I love the sentiments that go with it.

The layout is from Sketch Frenzy Friday.
