Pink Butterflies

Aren't these sentiments just lovely? One of my favorite things to put on a card is butterflies, I really love them. This set is called Kinda Sorta by The Project Bin.
I used vellum with an embossed butterfly folder, lots of Pretty In Pink, white embossing powder, a butterfly punch, sequins, and baker's twine and ribbon to embellish.

A Bushel and a Peck

Fall is in the air and it's time for picking apples and pumpkins! This set is called Thanks a Bushel and is by Lawn Fawn. Paper is Pebbles "Woodland Forest", card stock and brads are Stampin' Up!

Costume Party

These little cuties are from Lawn Fawn and called "Costume Party". I made the background from Tim Holtz distress oxide inks of Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick, and Crushed OLive. The fence die is by Kaiser Craft.

Love You

What a fun set to bring a smile to someone's day! This is called Really Hungry by The Project Bin.
It would make some great valentines in addition to all occasion cards.
I used a retired Basic Grey designer paper collection. Sorry that I don't know the name of it, I often get rid of packaging to save space. I seem to remember Infuse, not 100 per cent sure. Stamped the tomatoes on a stitched heart die cut and the sentiment on a strip of the designer paper.

As paper crafters this beautiful sentiment says it all. Never underestimate the value of one of your handmade creations and how it will bring joy to someone's day! 
This stamp (actually a set of three) from The Project Bin is called Keepsake. You can use it as a sentiment or add it to the back of your card creations. Don't forget to sign and date your cards for an extra special touch, it's a great way to keep track of special occasions.

More Peace

The second card for the Jingle Bells Peace Challenge. This uses some retired SU Christmas paper and a peace symbol by Studio G.

Peace On Earth Challenge

A beautiful challenge theme over at Jingle Belles- a peace sign or peace themed Christmas card.
For the first card- This pretty keeper of a sentiment from Stampin' Up! (Greetings of the Season) was embossed in silver. Festive Flurries stamps and SU paper and embellishments. The tag can also slide into the pocket but I brought it out so you could see the whole thing.

Snome Time

I love the new gnome holiday stamps from Craft Consortium called "It's Snome Time". This is my first attempt at the no line style of coloring, I almost always stamp the images in black. For this card I used Gina K amalgam ink in Warm Glow which works beautifully with Copic markers. I went over everything with the fine tip of Stampin' Up! markers to match and added some highlights with white acrylic paint and some glitter to the images.
