CAAB New Releases

This week we have some new releases over at Cute As A Button.  I played with two of the new images. 


The first card I made was a shadow box card using Rose Garden.  This was a fun one to do.  I've never done a card that is a shadow box inside.  For the front of this card I used a floral embossing folder, a rose border punch, two scalloped dies and a sentiment from Create With TLC.

For the inside I used an oval die to cut out the center and added some gems in the corners to frame her better.


For my second card I used Spring Daisies.  One of my co-workers' dad died so we needed a sympathy card for her.  I used some fun glitter paper, a butterfly edge die, a butterfly thinlette die and some word dies.  The image was cut using a cookie cutter die with another oval die cut behind her.  I added lots of gems, a flower, and a small touch of ribbon.

Thanks for looking!

Spring is coming!

I don't know about you but I am ready for spring!  No more snow or ice this year please!!  This month's challenge over at Cute As A Button is "Spring".  I used this adorable image called Rise Up My Love.  I used the butterflies and flowers more than once.  The sentiment on the inside is from Create With TLC. This fun Dutch Fold card is not super difficult to make!  You can find the video tutorial I used HERE.  I colored the images using colored pencil.  I added a touch of lace and a touch of ribbon.

I Want You...

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is "Leather and Lace", but I blew it and didn't even add any of either...So...I made two!  haha  Oops!  We are being sponsored by the fabulous KennyK Stamps.
This first one was fun to do, I decided I wanted it to look like she had a wall of some sort in front of her "State of Undress"-edness...LOL I cut the front half of the card in half using an edge die then layered it with white and a DP.  For the most part, I kept the card rather CAS by just added a bow and adding a flower to her hair.

Love Is...

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is 'Love'.  We have two fantastic sponsors Lemon Shortbread and Eekers/Knitty Kitty.  I used an image from Lemon Shortbread.  I created a sentiment to go with it that I will share with you today.  As for the card, I added a bow, some gems and used a fun frame die to cut the blue cardstock.  The image was colored using colored pencils.

Here is the sentiment I created:
