Recollections mirror, glitter, and metallic cardstocks, and white cardstock

You can't really tell in the picture, but the whole card is matted on silver mirror cardstock.

Next up:

And the last:

These two used:

Spellbinders Shapeabilities dies- Snowflake pendant
Recollections cardstock and brads
Pearlized cardstock

More of the MFT haul :)

This stamp set is MFT's Flopsy Flowers.  So cute!  I experimented with a new technique, too- out of the box with the Spellbinders die.

The cardstock and patterned paper are Recollections, I stamped Flopsy on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored him in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I also used Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals dies.

Thanks for looking!

What a difference a little color makes

I've been playing with my OWH MFT fundraiser haul.  One of the stamp sets is My Favorite Things' "Who's That Girl" Mermaid.  This set has so many possibilities, it's not even funny. You get eight sentiments, the big scene and six elements to add to the scene.  Here's the MFT website- it appears that the Mermaid set may be retired.

Anyway, I made two similar cards with it:

Both are made with Bazzill cardstock, the stamp set, and my Spectrum Noir markers.  I added Ranger Glossy Accents to the blue mermaid, too.

Isn't it cool how you can add to the scene?

Thanks for looking!

Quick and easy cards

I knocked out a few quick and easy cards tonight.  The first is similar to one I did last week, just a different sentiment to make it a little more general so it will be easier for our Soldiers to use (OWH card). This one uses this month's Simon Says Stamp card kit stamp set and various Memento inks. Too easy!

The next is for a friend of mine who is recovering from surgery- love the look on the face of that little turtle! He is a digistamp from Bird's Cards.

The rest is me using up my Simon Says Stamp card making kit- I love the colors in the patterned papers this month!  The embellishments on these are American Crafts, found on sale at Target.

Thanks for looking!

I participated in Operation Write Home's My Favorite Things fundraiser, and what a great haul I got!  Sentiments and Who's That Girl and Flopsy stamps, ribbons, and dies woo hoo!

My cards today combine some of the paper from the August Simon Says Stamp card kit and a couple of the MFT stamp sets.  I just couldn't help myself lol

The stamp set here is MFT's "I Spy".  The kraft card is Bazzill, the bling is recollections.  I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.

This card uses MFT's Cupcake Flopsy stamp set and the tag is cut with Spellbinder's Back to Basics Tags.

I don't know which manufacturer this stamp set is from :(

Thanks for looking!
