New cards

Hope everyone had a great weekend!! I know I did...I went to my friend's wedding yesterday (it was so much fun and she was so happy) and I had a quiet day today. I thought I'd share some cards that I made this past week. The first two cards were made during at class that my LSS, The Paper Pickle, had on Tuesday and the third card I made yesterday for my friend's wedding.

For my first card, I stamped the image twice with Versamark Ink. Both images were embossed and I paper pieced the coloured birds onto the first image. The brads were silver to start with but they were coated with Versamark Ink, dipped into black embossing powder,and then embossed. I also used the Cobweb Cuttlebug folder (I liked it so much I had to buy one for myself) and added some sparkly chalk to it to give it more detail (but you can't really see it in this picture). A little patterned paper and ribbon finished the card off nicely.

For my second card, I stamped the image with Versamark Ink and embossed it. I used the Swiss dots Cuttlebug folder on the white card stock and oval Nestabilites to make the "frame" around the birds. A little patterned paper, ribbon, flower, and rhinestone added the finishing touches to the card.

By the way, if you live in my area, you should definitely take a card class at The Paper Pickle...the ladies who run the store are super talented as are the ladies who put on the card classes.

And finally, I made the third card for my friend's wedding yesterday. I've been looking at this House Mouse stamp (Sunflower Smooch) for some time now and I thought it would be cute to use on a wedding card. I inked the image with VersaMark Ink, added black embossing powder to the image, and embossed it. I coloured in the image with my Tombows, used my Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder on the cream coloured cardstock, and added some clear baubles from Stamping Bella.

I hope that everyone had a fun World Card Making Day yesterday and thanks for stopping by to check out what I've been making. Have a great night!!
