Skylark with Zipper Ribbon

This card is so pretty and I love the zipper ribbon. Made by Krista Hershberger, I received this in the national swap that I participate in. I love that I receive cards & layouts that other consultants make who have a different flair that I do.

The Skylark paper (X7177b  $9.95) has beautiful patterns in it. The zipper ribbon (Z1917   $3.95) is unique and you get 1 yard of ribbon in the package. The stamp set Believe in Yourself (C1574  $13.95) has great images that can be used in many different ways.

Enjoy your day!

Amazing with Lollydooodle

                                                                Easy with impact!

 New Lollydoodle paper, Love This (B1432  $9.95) stamp set, Pigment Black ink, Cotton Candy ink and Epoxy Bubbles (Z1935  $3.95)

I also ran the flowers through with the new Dot Embossing Folder (Z1924   $8.95) for some texture then bent the petals up slightly, mounting tape underneath also gives more dimension.

Washi tape in the corner is mounted to Cotton Candy CS to give some opaqueness to it.

Enjoy your day!

Perfect Day with Embossing

I love the new Embossing Folders in the spring/summer Idea book. This embossing folder is the Quatrefoil (Z1926  $8.95).This folder is 7" × 5" clear plastic, patterned embossing folder for use with an embossing machine. Pattern is repeatable for larger papers.

I ran the Slate CS through my Cuttlebug with the Quatrefoil folder and Viola! this is the amazing pattern.

I stamped the Perfect Day ( M1036  $2.95) with the Black Pigment ink (Z2503   $19.95)
Exclusive Inks™ Mini Pigment Pad Set in the following coordinating colors:
Desert Sand

I colored it with a Pear marker.

The new paper packet Lollydoodle (X7183b  $9.95) has wonderful patterns including this zip strip which you cut off the 12 x 12 to use. Very fun!!

New Durable Studs (Z1928  $3.95) finish off the card with a little Bakers Twine Metallic (Z1921   $5.95)

Enjoy your day!

Hi Card

I made this card for the national swap I participate in. My paper pack was to use the new Ariana kit that is in the Spring/Summer Idea book.

This card is 3 1/2 x 8.
I used the stamp "Hi" (M1041  $2.95).
The base of the card is covered in Ariana Gray
A piece of Ariana B/T paper is cut 1 1/2 x 8 and adhered to the left side of the card
The Ariana Green is cut on the Cricut at 3 1/2 ", then run through the Cuttlebug with the new Dot Embossing Folder (Z1924  $8.95). I love these new folders as they are bigger than others measuring 7" x 5". Then adhered to the bottom of the card, cutting off the excess hanging over the edge
The "Hi" is stamped with Pigment Slate ink then colored with CTMH alcohol markers, then covered with Liquid Glass. The edge is sponged with Olive ink
Layered onto Pink Sparkle paper
A acrylic flower is added to the dot of the I
