trendy tree

I am showing the bleaching technique at my hostess club tomorrow night. Here is one of the samples I made....
I bleached the main image of the trees and then stamped over it with the leave stamp. I used markers to get a multi tone effect but you cant really see that in the picture!
stamp set: trendy trees
old olive,close to cocoa and goodmorning sunshine DS paper
chocolate chip ink, really rust,choc chip markers
big shot top note die, photo corner punch
ribbon bundle from sell-a-bration.
I really like how the bleach gave it a muti tone look, it made the green paper pull out gold/yellow tones. This is my last hurray for the cooler on the summer!

3-D cake die

I just got the 3-D cake die and had to play with it! This is what I came up with... This is alittle time consuming but well worth the effort. The little man and woman on the top is so darn cute!!

I used whisper white, going grey and bella birds ds paper. Goody goody gumdrops and For the Bride stamp sets
The stamped images are embossed with white EP
whisper white taffeta ribbon and the new eyelet border punch
I also embossed the ds paper with the swirly texture plates and sanded the paper off so that you can see the swirly image clearer!! This card is actually pretty striking in person!

butterfly die

I have been playing with my big shot dies lately.. I just love these butterflies, they are so elegant looking! This was a fairly simple card showcasing the big shot die and texture plates.

I used night of navy,going grey and pink pirouette paper . the stamp set is embossed with silver EP. I cant remeber the name of the set at the moment..oops. whisper white organza ribbon and the swirly texure plate from the big shot texturz.

note cards

These notecards are samples for our girl scout troop to make. They needed to be very easy, the girls only have a half hour to make a set for their mom's for Mothers Day. I just took my scraps of miscellaneous ds paper and added the different messages with punches. I think I will prestamp everything so they only have to put the cards together.
stamp sets:say it with scallops, oval all, thank you kindly
misc DS paper, notecard set
square scallop punch, oval scallop punch, small oval and large oval punch

daisy card

I love all the daisy cards that I have been seeing lately..unfortunately
I dont have the daisy die, so here was my take on the card using the
flower emblosslit die instead!

I used whisper white and summer sun paper
goodmorning sunshine ds paper
stem sayings stamp set
my favorite corduroy buttons in summer sun

Here is a card I made for Mothers Day. I love this set but dont use it often enough. It seems like a perfect opportunity for this sentiment!

I used Baja breeze and kiwi kiss paper. Polka dot texture plate from the big shot. Morning soft and all holiday stamp sets. watercolor crayons. There is also dazzling diamonds in the center of the flowers but its kind of hard to see...

scallop card

Here is my swap from yesterdays meeting...
I used basic grey and pacific point paper. Good morning sunshine DS paper, cheap talk stamp set, big shot scallop die and basic grey taffeta ribbon.
It was kind of simple but I like how it turned out!
