More projects!

Love this petal cone die cut! This idea came from Ilana Crouse's blog, but I changed some of the colors. Cute gift for someone- just put in some chocolates or other little treat!

I used Baja Breeze cardstock with the Springtime Vintage DSP, Rose red seam binding and flower adornment. I gathered the ribbon for a 'soft' look.

This next 3x3 card is made from the Sale-a-Bration set 'Bliss'. I really like the elegance of these designs - anything 'swirly' I seem to like.

It's a monochromatic color scheme with Very Vanilla CS and Crumb Cake ink. Pearls were added and also some linen thread to complete the look. All the edges are sponged so it doesn't look so clean - I was going for a vintage look.

Nature Walk Club Project

Here is a card we will be making for Stamp Club on Monday. I used the square punch for the window sections with the Nature Walk images. I'm REALLY likin' the vintage style. Look closely and you will see that I sponged all the corners and edges to give it an aged look. I also sponged the Very Vanilla background because it was a little too 'clean'. I'm a stickler for having to have a greeting or some kind of word on my projects and on this one the 'no 147' seems to satisfy that need.

I'll try to get another project or 2 posted this weekend. Maybe something with the 'Bliss' Sale-a-bration stamp set : )

Nature Walk

I'm in love with this set! It's called Nature Walk from Stampin' Up! and has a very vintage feel to it. Bird cages, butterflies, a cool bird and a number to use in the background. This card style is out of my usual comfort zone for layouts, but I like it!

I pretty much cased this card out of the Occasions Mini catalog, but did change it a wee bit. I used Crumb Cake for the card base, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso for the distressed edge, and Pear Pizzazz under the greeting. Check out the little flower rosette! These are really nice and add just that extra touch when you're thinking a project needs something.

And, of course, a matching envelope with a torn strip of Early Espresso to match the card.
