Its been quite some time since I've posted....still been making cards, though! Here's a gallery of some of my favorites and some that offer a different twist, hope you like them.

 This was made for a student I've worked with for several years who was moving over the summer. Thought bright & cheery! Tough to photograph the sparkle & the butterfly's dimension.

I was amazed at how just a simple stamp on some dsp with punched strips under made such a pretty card.

After a fabulous first season for my daughter cheer-leading, I found this digi stamp at Sweet & Sassy Stamps  & fun exploding fold to let all the girls show their appreciation.

What better way to celebrate a teen who loves to twist & turn on the trampoline than a birthday card that does the same.  This is my try at the Tri-fold with a Twist. The toughest part of this design was being sure the stripes were going the right way before cutting & gluing. The sentiments are computer journals, the front used a digi frame found here. Originally used the frames for book plates, found they come in handy!

Here's two fun techniques in one! I used a triple stamp layering technique on a spring card. The front of this one actually opens for the message inside, which makes for a slightly top-heavy card.

This was fun to make & I love the way the lattice EF came out for the base with the Martha Stewart flowers (stamp & punch set). I ended up adding some of the same water color pencil to the edges of the flowers that I used in the main image.

For this next card, I cased a technique I saw on Pinterest from Live Love Stamp. Didn't make mine shadowed, but did ink the edges & really like the way the stamp flows from one tile to another. 

Still working on using a fine line with glitter, but do like the way the sentiment came out with the embossing. Stamp is from Hot off the Press - Heart to Heart Greetings.

...and this one? Well, its simple, but just plain pretty.                                                                        I used a printed cardstock then made the band with a MS border punch. Love the butterfly, it was die cut from another piece of printed stock.                       

That's it for now, will be posting more soon. Thanks for taking a look!
