Simply Adorned...

The Simply Adorned charms are so fun to personalize. If you notice, I added a small self adhesive rhinestone from the kit
Stampin' Up sold this Spring. Fortunately, we will be able to purchase them in packs of 150 (50 each of 3 sizes) for only $4.95! Can't wait...bring on the "bling"

Elements of Style again...

Elements of Style is a favorite set of mine. This time we used the same swirl as we used on the card in the previous post. We used Soft Suede ink and Kraft CS for a totally different look. The photo doesn't show the Shimmer Mist...so much prettier in real life. It's such a nice subtle way to add an elegant touch.

Kinda bright...

Recently, I bought a previously owned book of poetry that elementary school children had written. Tore out some pages and went to town. We used Verasmark and the swirly stamp from Elements of Style (love it!), then embossed in clear embossing powder. Next we sponged Summer Sun ink over the embossed swirl. The embossing swirl resists the ink and remained white. This version was kinda bright...I'm eager to try this with different colors of ink.

I have to admit...

...I LOVE diecuts! I stamped part of the large floral image from Elements of Style onto the diecut butterfly and colored with pencils for a quick and easy card.

Circle Circus...

Although colors in the "orange" family aren't usually my favs...I really like this card. Used Dusty Durango ink on a card base similar to Blush Blossom. The Designer Series Paper is from the Fall Flowers assortment. A variety of circle punches and the Scalloped Circle punch were used to punch the circles from Whisper White CS.

Fabric Butterflies...

Posted by Picasa
I recently acquired a bunch of fabric samples from a friend. An odd size to do much with so I ran them through the Big Shot with the Beautiful Butterflies die from Stampin Up! Love how these turned out, using the coordinating fabric. In the photos the edges appear to be ragged, but in real life, it's hardly an issue. The small checked fabric is silk and is really beautiful. Thank you my Wallingford friend!

Striped Gift notes. Small but sweet...

Click on images to enlarge

I love the striped Designer papers used on these sweet note cards. Using Hodge Podge Hardware on 2 of the cards and a corduroy brad with taffeta ribbon on the card to the left. Notice the Very Vanilla envelope in the second photo...I continued the theme of the scalloped notes and used the scallop edge punch on the flap of the envie.
