SC129 Wildflower with Leaves

Here is a card I posted a while back on SCS , the only stamping is the sentiment on this card . The background is a piece of adhesive backed fabric I picked up a roll of at a local Big Lots store , it is applied to a piece or cardstock then trimmed to the right size , the side panel is mounted on pop dots , the center of the flower(Making Memories) sports a rhinestone brad , fake leaves are then added after the flower is applied with a pop dot. SU! oval punches layered with a sentiment from Fancy Flexible Phrases stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black , the yellow CS is a textured CS by DCWV .
Hope you like it !

Just Something Fun for Today !

What Lastel Means

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.
You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.
You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

Yep it's pretty right on , how did they know !?!

SC160 Time Well Spent Butterflies

I made this card using the general layout of the SC160 on SCS , although it is not exact it is pretty close , did not want the darker color to be too overstated . The butterflies are stamped on pink CS and then cut out and colored with glitter gel pens. The polkadot paper is by DCWV from the All Dressed Up stack . Butterflies are popped up on pop dots . Rectangle scallop punch out used behind the butterflies . Everything is stamped in black versafine . I am not real pleased with the way the butterly antennae look cut out .

Spirelli Card

From time to time I am going to post cards that I have made in the past , that I have in my gallery at SCS , this one is made using a technique called spirelli , it is done on a piece of gold metallic cardstock that has been punched out . This is a square card that I beleive measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. No stamping done on this except a sentiment on the inside . I can post directions later if anyone wants them .

Ribbon is purely pomegranite
punch : corner rounder

Christmas cards made at My first SU! Workshop

These are the cards I designed for the gals to make at my very first SU! workshop in December , they all really enjoyed making this card . This card is sort of cased from this card in JanTinks gallery on SCS .
I used Illuminations and Baroque Motif stamp sets and Encore gold and silver inks . All edges were dragged thru the ink pad , ticket corner punch for all corners and silver brads were added . Cardstock used is Purely Pomegranite , Wild Wasabi and Wisper White .
