Victorian Bird

This is a Gate Fold Card. 
The green ribbon not only adds a decorative element it also helps to keep the card closed.

I love how this card looks like something that was tucked away from years past. 
Doilies, hem tape, wire & pearl embellishments along with some vintage looking stamps and paper made it happen.

Antique Flutter

As you can tell, I've been in a vintage mode lately.  I love the way this card turned out it will be very hard to give it away.  Kraft, white, dark brown paper make up the base.  Lace, twine, and ribbon give it the look and feel I love.  An embossed image and mini roses add a bit of bling to it.

Distressed Collage

Corrugated Cardboard, browns and a touch of blue brings this card to life.

Sense of Time

This looks like it has a black layer but that is done by taking a marker and outlining the edge!  Works great for those cards that you want the layered look but plan on mailing!

Bird in a Tree

Woodgrain folder, square die cut, stamped branches & bird cut out makes a quick and simple card for many different occasions.

Violet Sympathy

You don't always have to cut when you use a Spellbinder Die!  I used the square to emboss a frame, added some leaves with a punch, stamped a saying and attached a flower.  Quick and Easy.

A Halloween Party

Okay so I couldn't get enough of the new paper that Scrapbook101 has stocked up on, I just had to go back for some more!  This time I came out with this cute paper from Reminisce called A Halloween Party.  Yes, I know this is a bit out of my comfort zone but my inner child was telling me I could do it and Halloween is my favorite holiday!  I set to work creating some different types of cards, changed the size of a few and added elements to them that I haven't used in my other cards.  I have not posted two of the items that I made, you will just have to stop into the store on Wednesday to see them;)  I will give you a hint though, Scrapbookers will be happy for one of them and those that love things that keep going and going will love the other item!  Once again thank you Scrapbook101 for this fun opportunity!

Upscale Damask

Sorry for the blurred image, my camera has a mind of its own! 
Clear embossing powder on chocolate paper, Damask folder on blue paper, Ribbon in the middle and the card is complete.

A Christmas Story

I was so excited when I heard that Scrapbook101 was looking for people to make a few samples from some of their new paper!
Away to the van, I flew like a flash, tore open the door and buckled my sash. 
The traffic was heavy, the lights red and green, but my destination had come to an end!
Upon entering the store, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but "A Christmas Story" from Reminisce. 
With papers and stickers so vintage and classic, I knew in a moment it was mine for the asking.
The treasures were stacked by the register with care, in hopes that Jeanie soon would be there;
As I waved goodbye to my fellow friend, visions of crafting danced in my head!
Thank You again Jeanie from Scrapbook101 for this opportunity!
