Those are the cards I'll be featuring in the next few days. Some will be using retired stamp sets, but mixed with new stuff, maybe you'll enjoy the results. I know I had fun.
Here's the first one for you to check out - the fairy piece was already done, glitter, brads, cord, everything... but that was all I had. It was almost like an artist trading card, only not. So, I used it to create a card for my sister's birthday, which is tomorrow. Guess it won't be arriving in her mailbox on time, will it?! UGH!!
Anyway, here's the card:
I played with my Cuttlebug for some embossed Happy Birthday messages, then did some paper piercing on the strip, added glitter (and how can I resist, considering the fairy theme?!) and some fun backgrounds using stamps I've long forgotten about, and voila! A card that I think is kinda fun.
Sets: Fairy Nice, Little Pieces, Teeny Tinies, Happy Birthday template (Cuttlebug)
Colors: Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery
Other: silver brads, silver cord, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds
Hope you (and my sister) like it!
UPDATE: OMG - I just found the original card I made using this piece, and it's from 2005! LOL... it's in my gallery on SCS - click HERE to see the original card this came from! lol
