Kinda Eclectic and Age Awareness

This first card is DIane's version of the card I did...she added a few feathers and made the corners larger....
not sure which I like better...lol

This is a cased card.....only changed one thing on this card...used Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss...a wonderful combination....

this is the gatefold closed
 Used the square collection and only glued one half of the square piece..
 centered and adhered it...
 then glued the opposite half of the smaller square...
 adhered it..


 and then added the top piece...although in class...I mentioned attaching the phrase piece before gluing the small square...

this is the inside....used the Moonlight DSP pack and the Age Awareness Happy Birthday...

New FLower Medallion Punch and Sweet Laughter

Although the coordination paper is retired...you could use the same technique on the DSP...ours has a layer of white in the middle....love this Happy Mother's Day stamp from Sweet Laughter..Used the colors that are about to retire in June...coastal cabana, Strawberry bliss and Cantalope ...will really miss the cantalope and cabana..
 
 Used the one inch punch and the 7/8 scallop circle and the tiny circle punch...rhinestone added..

A Happy Hooray Vintage

Love this Happy Hooray set....it is a wonderful feather...half of the feather is textured...great embossed...I did not come up with this....saw it in a swap....just changed the paper and colors....don't you just LOVE LOVE LOVE this Something Borrowed DSP #137785    If this ends up in the catalog...have a wonderful idea on how to use it...just makes me do a happy dance....lol
 and the lace in the mini is to die for...Sahara Sand 7/8 Lace Trim  #137866....and think of the vintage cards you could make...even if you are not into vintage...this would make some wonderful elegant cards.....
 Took the feather and embossed it with versamark and sahara sand on the top part of the bird....wonderful idea!!  The pearl eyeball is colored with our gold marker and the beak with a brown (espresso) marker......

St Patrick's Day using Chalk Talk and Gold Soiree DSP

The Gold Soiree DSP is gorgeous....will miss it when the new catalog comes out...used the Lovely Lace  Embossing folder and centered the flowers and punched with the Blossom and Pansy punch...
 Poled a hole in the center of the two and (used the daffodil seam binding) knotted it and took it to the back...knotted again and cut off the excess...popped up with dimensionals.
