Scallop Circle card

OK, Dannie posted a card on her blog using the scallop 2 with the big shot, I did it using the Circle Scallop die (the big one) and that is what I have here. Thanx Dannie for the great share, I have to say I really like this card and as you can tell from other posts on my blog, I am very fond of the Embrace Life Set.

Anniversary Cards

This is an Anniversary Card that i made today when I received a call asking for one and realizing that I didn't have any on hand, so I started playing around with something I saw in a previous post along time ago, I will sometimes save a pic when I come across something I really like and will then usually change it up as I play with it . I have always loved the priceless set and the flourish stamps that go with it.

This one is the Embrace Stamp Set and our new Bella Rose papers, also uses the technique of removing the rhinestone from the brads and using it solo, great tip I read from a post of someone who had been to convention.

Thanx for checking out my blog

Wedding Invites #1

These were the first ones I did, using the big From the Garden Hostess Stamp and gold encore ink, thenI took a gold leafing pen from Krylon and did the edges, then the wording was done in chocolate chip so it stood out. I did 65 of these. I have to say, eachone was alot of fun no matter how many I did.

Wedding Invites #2

Here is the 2nd ones I did for a niece and her boyfriend/husband. These were done with Lovely Lilac card stock and whisper white embossed with my cuttle bug, the writing on vellum and attached with ribbon. I made 100 of these, it was a job.

Wedding Invites #3

Here is a wedding invite I did for a friend, using the cuttlebug embossing folder for the very vanilla underneath and the chocolate chip ribbon from out holiday mini from 2007. The writing I typed into word and used the color charts for the ink to match the cardstock, printed it on vellum and over laid it. Sorry for the bad lighting. I made 70 of these.
