This card I used my new oval die for. This card is for a sympathy swap. It is nice to have a few of these around so you don't have to make one in a pinch. I used pop up dots to raise the center oval. I used Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.

This card was made for a swap that was about sponging. I was trying to think out side of the box because this is not normally my style. I like the way it turned out. I used the playful petals stamp set for this one. Hope you like it!

Christmas #3

I love this color combo for a Christmas card. I used Choc. chip and baja breeze. I embossed some of the snowflakes. I used a napkin in some ink to create a texture feel to the be merry oval. I really like the way it turned out. I was able to make 8 of them in about 45 minuets.

Also, the snowflakes are from the Snow Swirlled set.

Christmas again!

I made this card for a non-traditional Christmas color swap. I used the snow swirlled set and old in colors.

First Christams card of the year!

Hi, this is the first Christmas card I have done this year! I made it for a snowman lovers swap on SCS. It is a very simple card to put together. I used a snowflake cuttlebug folder for the background. I also used some snowflake brads that I got from a return swap. Hope you all like it!

3-D ladybug card

This card was made for a picnic swap! The lady bug is made from 3 scallop circle punches. I used a flat eraser on the end of a pencil to make the dots, and the eyelet border punch to make the cute border. Try out the ladybug she is so cute and easy!

Top Note

I just love using the Top Note Die! I used the new In Color on this one Melon Mambo. I used Kind and Caring Thoughts and Oval All stamp sets. I also used a rhinestone brads and some glitter. I was very happy with how it turned out.

Purple Top Note Card

Top Note Pursre

Good morning! This is a purse that I made for a Tea Party our church had for little girls. I made 20 of them. It was not very hard to do just time consuming! You will need a Big Shot machine, top note die, huge scallop die, and large scallop die. I used the Tea Party SU DSP. I backed my top notes on white card stock to make it a little more durable. The inside box piece I used white paper cut at 5 x 6. Then on the 6 inch side score each side at 1. On the 5 inch side I scored at 2 1/4 on each side. Then you clip the little square you have in the middle on the score lines and put the box together with adhesive. I cut the top notes off the top a 1/2 inch so the scallop would sit nice. I put the scallops together and then scored the big one in the middle so it would fit on the top note. Then put ribbon on as your handle and decorate as you wish. I also used a little circle of velcro to hod the purse shut.

they were a big hit at the tea party! Hope you all enjoy! Have a great day:)
