Butterfly in Turquoise

This was a colorful 3D image for me, especially at this time of year.  I CAN use something other than earthy colors!!!  :)    Loved the turquoise and teal colors to work with.  Image is from Rubber Stamp Therapy (Link in left side column).  Cut out layers, pop up with foam tape.  Used the Sizzix Jelly Frame die and one of the tags from Spellbinders Tag Trio.  Stamp is Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Had a request about subscribing, so have a link on the left side to do that.  Still learning, so don't know if that's what I need, but let me know if it isn't!!!
Thanks for stopping by!  Drop in on the comments and say Hi!  Would love to hear from you!

A Little Dazzle

Made the purple accent flowers with a piece of wire and Flower Soft.  The white flowers are MS 16 Point Star punch.  Think it was called a Christmas Star when I bought it last year.  MS Royal Butterfly punch and the white accent piece is punched with the Fiskars Border/Corner Lattice Entertain You punch.  For the leaves, they are from the Leone Em Super Giant Rockfern and the Nankong twig punches.
The glittered paper was provided by friend Marion from Australia.
Added clear Dew Drops with a little glitter on those too!
Love how those Border/Corner punches work!  Really easy to use!

3D Flower Cards

Was time to put together a couple of 3D cards.
Of course, just about everything I do is dimensional!!!
Used a couple of Martha Stewart punches and finally got out the dew drops, eyelets and a couple of charms for embellishing.  The 3D images are TBZ International.  Hard to see on the photos, but I really like these because they have a touch of gold and are embossed.

Poinsettia Nestabilities

This Spellbinder die sure made it easy to make a Poinsettia.  Wanted to try something different rather than the traditional red flower, so chalked a white pearlized paper with pink and green for the leaves.  The glittered background paper makes for an elegant look and I could see using this card not only for a Christmas card, but also a December wedding or birthday card.

Couple More Fall Flower Cards

Here are the other two cards I made with the same backgrounds.  Used Martha Stewart, Punch Bunch, Stampin' Up! and EK Success punches.

Another Fall Flower

Just had a fabulous week with friends creating cards, watching movies and having a great time!  Here is one of the cards I made.

Had some of these background leftovers, so will show the cards I made with these over the next few days.  Was nice just to be able to add some flowers and I was done!

Background paper was an old Basic Grey paper.  Used the Stampin' Up! scallop punch for the flower along with the Martha Stewart cornflower punch and a Punch Bunch sun and a twig punch.  Also a Leone Em fern punch.  Sponged some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on the flower petals and leaves.

Will add more cards later this week!  Love to see who is stopping by, so would be great to hear from you in the comments!

Zinnia Zest

Tried out my new Victoria Embossing Folder by Cuttlebug.  A design that will suit many occasions.  The Zinnia is my version of a fun flower made my Susan Tierney Cockburn in her book Paper Bouquet.  Punches are from Punch Bunch, stamps are clear acrylic by Inkadinkado and also used the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities by Spellbinders.  Started this card with fall in mind, but with the burgundy and green, it leans more toward Christmas!

Lily Type Flowers

Made this some time ago, but figure it is the right colors for the season.  Used Punch Bunch punches for the lilies and leaves.  Not sure of the name of the background paper, but loved working with the fun colors!

Turquoise Butterfly Lattice Card

Here is a birthday card I made a little while ago.
Used the Core'dinations paper so I could do a little sanding on the embossed areas.  Love that stuff!  Also used the Spellbinders Lattice Pendant including the left over pieces for the corners.  The butterflies are also Spellbinders Butterflies Two.  Embellished with ribbon, gold cord and some Dot Sparklers.

Fall Birthday Card

Birthday card I made for Nikky!  More fun fall colors!  Guess I really enjoy the autumn colors!

Used the dots and swirls Cuttlebug embossing folders and three sizes of Punch Bunch daisy punches plus the medium twig and the small fern punch.  Can't forget the butterfly!  All punches by Punch Bunch.
