Ok, ok, onto the cards.
This sweet little cutie pie is my own twist on a version of this card I've seen on multiple sites. I thought it would be darling to add a face to the sun for a little munchkin card. I used the pool party Cordination card stock, embossed with the chevron embossing folder, and then sanded -- for my base. The sun is punched out with the 1 3/4" round punch (from paper in the Quatrefancy DSP pack) and the "sun rays" are the FREE Sale-a-bration banner punch. Cute, huh! The clouds are made with the new word bubble framelits in the Occasions catalog, and then embossed with the dots Sale-a-bration embossing folder. Simple card, really, but will surely bring a smile to a little face somewhere!
Here is another Pinterest inspired card, using the Sale-a-bration stamp set -- Petal Parade. I used two retired card stock colors here -- Baja Breeze and Bravo Burgandy. To jazz up the flowers just a little, I punched out some little flowers (using the Itty Bitty Punch pack again) from silver glimmer paper. Just gives them a little "pop".
Ok, dear crafty friends! That's it for a another month. Ha ha! :)
All the crafting best to each of you!
