Winter Silhouette Card

The silhouette image is from A Child's Year cartridge.  I embossed the background with a snowflake folder and added three different sized punched snowflakes using blue mica paper.  The bottom border was done with a Martha Stewart punch.

I decided it was too plain and added a red bird.  What do you think?  With or without the bird?


Metallic Feathers Card

Glimmer Mist was sprayed onto turquoise card stock then stamped with gold metallic ink for the feathers.

Chickens Card

The chickens are a clip art image found online.  I used a Stampin' Up punch for the notebook edge and added a couple of brads that look like screws.

The bottom section was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. 

The edges were inked with Chestnut Roan ink.

Inspired by a card seen online by Judy May.

Circle of Butterflies Card

This was inspired by a card seen on Splitcoast Stampers.

The background was embossed; the butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch; the leaves are from an older set of stamps. 

Using Hallmark Card Studio software, I printed the circle of butterflies and the sentiment.  They were punched with a 2" circle punch and mounted onto a 2 1/4" scalloped circle then pop dotted for dimension.

Flower Panel Card

Cindy Hall, a Stampin' Up demo, showed a card similar to this a couple of years ago.

The sentiment is Heard from the Heart by Stampin' Up.  I used Lady Bug, Bamboo Leaves and Paris Dusk Memento inks to stamp the flowers.

Pink Rose Card

The images are from Stampin' Up set called Growing Green.

I colored them with Promarkers and fussy cut the rose. 

Chalked Embossed Card

It's been a long time since I've used chalks on an embossed image.  After doing this one, I remember why.  The chalks are messy.

The birdhouses were fussy cut from a DCWV stack called Songbird.

Four Hearts Card

The hearts were fussy cut and pop dotted for dimension.

The stamps are Clearly Collaged Hearts.  The ink is Close to Cocoa.

Apples and Leaves Card

The Tart and Tangy stamp set was one of the very first ones I bought from Stampin' Up.  The set includes an apple, lemon slice, cherry branch and a strawberry.  Even though I've had them for several years they're still some of my favorites.

The apple background paper is also from Stampin' Up.

Rainbow and Clouds Card

Swiss Dots folder was used to emboss the base.

The rainbow is a clip art image. 

The clouds are a file by Bird.

The sentiment was printed with my computer.

I pop dotted the center embellishment for dimension.

Black and White Butterfly Card

The butterfly is a Silhouette file #19799.  I punched a couple of different borders and layered them then added some paper flowers with Pearl Pen centers.
