variation of a theme :)

so here's my version of the earlier butterfly card I loved....had to make it all purple, of course :) I used the SU Embosslit die and the words are Heart & Soul. Something about the simplicity of it all really strikes my fancy! ><>

sweet sixteen :)

This is for one of the girls on our worship team who is having her 16th birthday Sunday ~ and singing with us :) The banner is from Making Memories, the 'sweet' is Studio G, and the numbers were cut from an old school plastic stencil. A little glitter pen, some buttons and voila :) It's a joy to make music with such a great gal :) well, actually we're all fond of the whole family <3 Happy Sweet Sixteen Miss Emily! ><>

poppin' up butterflies :)

Another idea from card club yesterday....used some random leftover background paper I was goofing off with...Blue image is SU, and the 'spring butterfly' is one of those $1 stamps from Michael's. Words are Heart & Soul. But the real fun begins when you open it up....

These images are all older Impression Obsession...I just measured a 1" triangle at the top of the page, and about 1 1/2" from the bottom to make the pop out. They all fold up rather nicely when you close the card. So much fun :)

my new favorite card :)

I go to a card making class once a month where we all bring *kits* and assemble them ~ lotsa fun and some great ideas! I just am in looove with this simple card :) The lines were hand drawn with a white gel pen. The butterflies are made with the SU punch, and the image was some kind of clear stamp. If you know, let me know, so I can give the proper credit :) I think I'll be making a whoooole bunch of these! ><>

*Quilty Love*

I confess...I was a quilter before I became a stamper :) (Hey...I'll get back to it someday! :) I just love cards that have a pieced look to them.For this card I went straight to the scrap drawer and punched different squares. I *fussy cut* the heart ( I think that means by hand!) and stamped the center in a different color. This heart really is one of my favorite Heart & Soul images. The words are also H & S. Love it :)
