Colorful Butterflies

I saw a similar version of this card done in 3 pastel colors (and just 5 butterflies, with a sentiment stamped where I put the 6th butterfly) I decided to take a stab at the card with the Summer Smooches paper...I think it's a little colorful (maybe too much!) but it made for a nice birthday card for my niece...I used 2 different sized mini butterflies ad I think both work nicely...

Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White...

Girly Graduation

Here's the card I made for my oldest's graduation...the layout was inspired by the 2nd photo...I just turned it around and changed the shape of the main image (eliminating the border)...the stamp is an ancient stamp (one of my first SU! stamp sets)...I just stamped it twice (once on white and a second time on pink) and cut out the cap and diploma and popped with dimensionals...and of course, added some glitter!

Graduation Owl

I needed a few graduation cards this year...this one was for a friend at work...I didn't know his school colors but I thought that red, black and white was pretty classic...the wings of the owl are a half scalloped oval...the cap is just a hand cut diamond...

Tangerine Tango is my new Favorite!

I know I've done this card before, but this time I put it on a Tangerine Tango base....I think the white base is nicer, but I just love to add more color!

It's never too early to...

...start making some Christmas cards!  Make a few each week and you'll be set for Christmas time...when you never seem to have time!

The pointsettias are from a retired stamp set, but you could easily do without the stamp...the leaves are just a portion of the 5 petal punch...quick tip********I colored the white center brads with a yellow sharpie!!!!!**********

Basic Gray, Whisper White, Real Red

Seen before...

I know you've seen this layout before...but it just works perfectly with Mixed's hard to see in the photo, but I put a Real Red punched flower under the stamped one, adding some dimension...the leaves are part of the 5 petal flower...
