My first card is made with Melanie Muenchinger’s  Stately Flowers 6. I wanted to give this card a wintery feel, and achieved it by using fine white embossing powder on the entire image of the pine cone. I really love how this translates on vellum and decided to also color in the open parts of the pine cone with my copics to bring out the natural browns.

Adding a large button and the larger sentiment helped to balance the card’s design. I decided on the Gina K. “Christmas Pine” card stock as it rounded out the pine tree colors. Simple, but effective.

My next card features Beth Silaika’s Lovely Ladybug set! This fun set allows for so many different ladybug creations.

I decided on making a sweet and playful baby card with this set. Using the new Innocent Pink and Cherry Red Color Companion inks and buttons, I was able to match my accessories for this card perfectly!

Using the new “Smitten” patterned paper, I was able to make this simple strip up the side of the card and top it with a little banner flag. What is really wonderful was how amazing the Red Hot Gingham Color Companion ribbon matched the paper. I had to use it for the inside of my button! Isn’t it perfect?

For my last card today, I got BOLD with Cammie’s new set, “Stamp it Big”. These are nice large sentiments for your cards along with some great building pattern elements.

I got really bold and bright with a great purple and yellow color combo. I masked out the area where I wanted to have the sentiment so I could stamp the striped design element diagonally. When I was done making my pattern, I then added score tape in between the pattern and used some yellow glitter to outline my pattern. I then stamped my sentiments and made another pattern at the top of the card. This is a wow card, especially in real life!

    Becky, your paper-pieced ladybug is just adorable and I love how you’ve used the different inks on the stripey card! Thanks for sharing!

  26. Laurie in MN says:

    The baby card is adorable. And the folded ribbon with the button is a clever way to avoid tying a bow. And I like ways to avoid tying bows.
    The Pine card is beautiful and I always love the look of vellum on a card. How did you keep the vellum flat after heat embossing? I get a little carried away with the heat gun.
    The stripes were so smart on the third card. I have to go back to the set and take a closer look at the stamp. I never know how to use the small abstract stamps. And purple is an underused color.
    I learned something new from each card you made. Bonus for me! Thank you.

  27. Lee says:
