Green & Navy Damask

Seems that I am starting to get attached to these card functions, for quick birthday cards.  This one is Damask31, cut at 5 1/2".   I love this navy and green apple color combo!  I added a mounted sentiment using all three colors and a strip of ribbon from Michael's.   The ribbon is actually printed with a green pattern but it was much brighter than what I needed so, I flipped it over.   When you see the card up close, you can see the green design.

What are little boys made of?

I have to say that I love the way that this card turned out!  It's a tri-fold card with the 'What are Little Boys Made of' theme.   The first panel is the Snail from B is for Boy cartridge.   The snail is cut at 4" and then the brown layers of the shell, I used glossy accents to make them stand out.
The paper is from My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side and I trimmed the corners and the left vertical border with Fiskar's Pinking Shears.  The vellum sentiments were cut from a Colorbok collection.   I added the frog stamp from Fiskar's Creepy Crawly set and the colored metal adhesives from Heidi Grace.

The second panel also features paper from the My Mind's Eye, On the Bright Side collection and the dog is cut from B is for Boy at 4".   I used the pinking shears on the horizontal border but then I hand cut the chevron paper into three sections.   The vellum sentiment is mounted onto the same paper from the front , as well as the dog's hat.   I added a touch of Christmas Red Stickles to the 'helicopter' on his hat and some glossy accents to his nose.

The inside features more cuts with the shears and the rest of the vellum sentiment adhered to a piece of the chevron paper from panel #2 and the zig zag corners cut from panel #1.

Yellow & Purple Combo

Here are my latest cards using the negative cuts from the Damask Decor bedroom collage that I made.   I have a bag full of them and I use them when I need some go to cards.   I used Fiskars stamps and the paper was the same sheet but, I can't recall the stack I used.

Vintage Halloween

I know it's not the season but I made this card last year and sent it in for submission to Cricut magazine but, it wasn't chosen.   Authentique has a link challenge going on for National Scrapbook Day so, I thought I would post it and link because I still love it so!!  This is one of my favorite Halloween cards (that I've made).  All of the paper on this card (except for solids) are from the Authentique Glowing collection which I LOVE!! 

The framed witch is the frame7 cut from Happy Hauntings, with the layers, at 4".   I used a fiskars punch on the corners and then inked the edges with black ink.   I used some ruffled orange and cream ribbon from American Crafts and then pop dotted the mounted from over top.   The sentiment is from Studio G and says "best witches".
