This first card is a good use of the wonderful Fringe Scissors! I think it is really a great card for a girly girl!! And the sentiment fits it to a "T" don't you think? It is from the new stamp, Remembering Your Birthday (pg 59).
This next card was so fun to make! I used the Hardwood background stamp for the fence, cutting apart the individual slats and sponging the edges. But the greatest part was cutting the pointed tops of the fence! I used the Chevron Punch and it was so easy!!
The clouds were made using the Word Bubble framelits - sponging Soft Sky around the edges. I made a flower pot with the Artisan Label and Word Window punches. The flowers are punched out of DSP with the Petite Petals Punch and candy dots were used for the centers. Again, those Fringe Scissors came in handy for the grass. Of course, the bird is from the versatile bird punch and his eye is a pearl colored with a black Sharpie.
This card was fun to make and everyone's will turn out different. I used the Flower Patch stamp and randomly stamped the flowers. I embossed the bottom half of the card with the Woodgrain folder (after stamping). A caution using the Woodgrain folder - I have found that it is easily torn so I try to remember to emboss it by opening up Tab 1 on the Big Shot or you could also try using a piece of waxed paper.
This card was based off a swap I received last year at convention!! I really haven't used this stamp set (Six Sided Sampler) or the coordinating punch very much and really need to!! I love how it turned out. I stamped the images in White Craft Ink on the Melon Mambo card stock and the images in Versa Mark on Black card stock. Then I embossed the black card stock using Melon Mambo embossing powder and the Melon Mambo card stock with White embossing powder. The white card stock is embossed using the Honeycomb embossing folder.
I hope these cards give you inspiration!
