My first Easel cards

Hi everyone... hope that you're all having a great weekend. I thought I'd share my first attempts at easel cards with you all before heading out of town for the night with some friends for dinner and catching the Alice in Wonderland movie (I'm so excited to see that movie).

I made these easel cards for a neighbour who kindly plowed our driveway this winter and for a mingle in the Magnolia-licious group that I'm part of. I think for my first attempts they turned out good (I definitely am really liking the look of the easel cards right now).

All the cardstock, patterned paper, and ribbon is from SU!. The images were stamped in SU! Basic Black , SU! Riding Hood Red, and SU! Baja Breeze ink and coloured in with Stamping Write markers. I used stamps from the SU! sets Branch out and With All My Heart for the card for my neighbour and the Magnolia stamp Sweet Tilda for the card for the mingle. To finish off the cards, I popped the images up and I added some clear baubles, glitter, and Stickles.

Hope you enjoyed looking at my cards... I'll be back in the next couple of days to share the card that I made for my boyfriend's sister's birthday. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

P.S. Please make sure you pop on over to Norma's blog for your chance to win her blog candy in honour of her first blogoversary (if you click on the picture of Norma's blog candy on my sidebar, it'll take you straight to her blog).

Both are very nice cards. Hope we don't see anymore of that white stuff falling for a while though.

Both cards are lovely - I especially like the first one. Those touches of red really set it off.
