3 Cards, All Seasons

Hello again! I've been busy creating things, and haven't had the time to update you on what I've been working on. I have created three cards to share with you. I hope you love them as much as I do!

I used Gina K Designs latest Stamp TV kit (Petals and Wings) to make this cute balloon card. I love the Basic Grey  Out of Print papers - they are the perfect whimsical touch for this image. I colored the main panel with Copic markers, and added three levels of pop-ups to get a real 3D feel. Paper piecing is fun and fast with this simple image.

 Love to play with the clouds! This makes me happy!

This cutie is flat because I want it to be easy to mail. Do you see that gorgeous frame stamp in green? Do you notice how the pattern is a slightly smaller, perfect match to the patterned pink paper? Gina K is so freaking fabulous for thinking of that - it's in the Petals and Wings set too. I love it! Yes, that's her new venture - her own line of printed papers.

See the little bunneh? It was orange, but I dipped it in glue then in pink embossing powder, and viola'! Perfect accent! I also colored the flowers with Sakura Stardust pens but the camera just wouldn't pick them up well. It's very pretty in real life!

This is a Father's Day card. Now I know the calendar says April, but this is slated for our soldiers through Operation Write Home. Our Father's Day deadline is the end of this month. I need to get busy cranking these out! Tami Mayberry's new set, Masculine Tags, makes it a snap to do! The patterned papers are also new from Gina K.

I love this little collection of elements. It's a Tim Holtz ticket colored with distress ink, 2 McGill punch branches from Tim's new glassine paper (love this stuff!), a couple buttons, some twine and a rhinestone. Decorative but not at all feminine, even with the bling. I paper pieced the frame - this set is designed for cutting with Spellbinder's Labels 22, but they are easy to cut by hand.

So there you have it! I'm so glad you stopped by today. If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a note in the comments, and I'll get right back to you. Have a great weekend!

Ta for now,

♥ ~ky
