Timerberline Slide Out Card

                  Created by Eileen Black Rodriguez

I love all the pieces to this card. The inside piece is like a postcard that slides into the exterior "envelope". Using the Timberline paper packet keeps this card very neutral, if not masculine, in feel.
And aren't we always looking for good "guy" cards.
It would be easy to add a gift card or cash to the inside piece.

Enjoy your day!

Timberline My Creations Page

                                       Created by Eileen Black Rodriguez

This page is already to add a great picture to. I love the use of the Washi tape at the bottom and the little bit of ribbon tied onto the element at the top of the page is perfect.

Enjoy your day!

Jubilee "You Lift Me Up" Card

                                       Created by Allison MacCoy

I love a different size card besides the standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". This card is 8" x 3 1/2" and will fit into a legal size envelop.

Using the Jubilee paper packet, Bakers Twine, Wooden shapes gives this card a nostalgic feel. The stamp set Give A Lift ( D1582  $17.95) has 9 wonderful images with one of them you can us the Artbooking Cricut cartridge from CTMH to cut out.

Enjoy your day!

Ivy Lane Sympathy Card

                                  Created my Cindy Herman

I often forget about the corner rounder but I love how the use of it softens this card. Using Ivy Lane paper packet you can see how this card would be quick but with a lot of impact.

Do you love the sentiment & the mounting of it? Me too. This is done easily with the Cricut cartridges by Close To My Heart. You have 3 different cartridges to pick from which equals over 2100 images (700+ on each cartridge).

Love the little sparkle with the acrylic flower and the swish of the glimmer sparkle.

Enjoy your day!

This is a card that I designed for the national swap using Ariana paper.

The card measures 8" x 3 1/2" and is covered by Ariana Gray CS. The piece of B/T paper from the Ariana paper packet 1 1/2" x 8" is adhered down the left side of the card.

A piece of Ariana Green CS is cut into a 3 3/4" circle and then run through the Cuttlebug inside the new Dot Embossing Folder(Z1924  $8.95) to give a little interest in the corner of the card.

New Pink Glitter paper (Z1922  $5.95) is FABULOUS!! You get (3)- 12" x 12" sheets of 3 shades of pink . LOVE IT!!

The "M" size stamps are such a value at $2.95. This "Hi" stamp (M1041) is a must have. Who doesn't want to say "hi" to someone? The "I" in hi is dotted with an acrylic flower found in the Ivy Lane assortment (Z3001  $5.95).

Enjoy your day!

Skylark with Quatrefoil Embossing Folder

                                    Made by Krista Hershberger

I think this is my favorite embossing folder of all the new ones....though tomorrow I could feel differently! Haha!!

Running the Sweet Leaf CS through the Cuttlebug with the Quatrefoil folder gives this card tons of texture without a lot of work. My kind of card.

Using an "A" size stamp like Quick Card: Island Greeting (A1157  $6.95) is another way to make a quick card look like you put a lot of effort into the card.

Did you notice the Jute ribbon? You get 5 yards of Jute ribbon (Z1867  $7.95) which is a great deal is you have ever priced ribbon out.

The accessories are the new Epoxy bubbles and the Skylark assortment which has 2 sizes of flower and birds all made out of resin.

Enjoy your day!
