Tall Snowman

Another snowman card for Christmas swap.  Used designer papers from last years catalog.  Crumb cake and real red cardstock.  Adorning Accents framelits used for the middle.  Christmas cards are so much fun and the colors are bright.

Polka Dot Snowman

Did this for a swap for Christmas.  Trying to get a jump on that crazy time of the year.  The DS paper used for this card is no longer available through stampin up but loved it.  The cardstock is real red and the ribbon is grosgrain real red as well.  Used the dazzling diamonds on the snowman.  The square is cut using the spellbinders die cut.

Saw this stamp set used on the splitcoaststamper and had to get it to make some cards.  I used pool party, espresso and whisper white cardstock.  I stamped the balloons using my stampin up markers: pool party, wisteria and indigo.  I then cut them out around the balloon and adhered to the white cardstock using stamping dimensionals.  The bird and cloud stamp is part of the set

Designer Bunny

Time for Easter Cards.    Saw this stamp set (Everybunny) last week and thought she would be fun.  Used my water color pencils and blender pen to shade her in then outlined her dress with the calypso coral marker.  Paper is the Everyday Enchantment designer paper and ribbon brad pack from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  Used the Calypso Coral paper and pool party.  Cut out a piece of calypso coral using the labels collection and then used the oval framelit to emboss the pool party paper before using a spellbinder oval die to cut out the background for the bunny.  The bunny is stamped on very vanilla paper.  The edges are cut using the edgelits dies.  I actually cut the designer paper to the size I wanted then lined it up with the edge of the top of the card and ran them both through the big shot so the scallops would line up when it was assembled.  The inside has the same scalloped edge cut out of very vanilla paper.  

Polka Dot Butterfly

I got the Sweet Shop designer paper from the Occasions mini and had to find a way to use the purple polka dot paper.  Used the blushing bride paper as one of the layers as well as the butterfly base.  The ribbon come already pleated and is also the blushing bride ribbon.  Saw the butterfly with vellum on the top on  I then used the score pad to put the design on the whisper white paper.  Then used the pearls at the intersections.  I figure I can use the card for any occasion so opted not to put any sentiment on the front until I decide how to use.
