Anniversary with Framelits

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Apothecary Art, Hugs & Wishes
Paper: Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum, Parisian Summer DSP
Ink: Black, SU Markers
Accessories: Framelits Label Dies, Finial Press Embossing Folder, Perfect Plum Taffeta Ribbon, Pearls, Dimensionals

Cowboy Boot

This is the card I made for my daughter's boyfriend.  I think he wears cowboy boots everyday so this was the perfect card for him.  I found a template, printed it out and used that to trace the shape onto my card stock.  Once I had the shape cut out I used various elements to give the boot some texture and add more interest. 

Supplies Used:
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Black, DSP (unknown)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Embossing Folders, Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, Brads

A Little Bit Late

First of all, I want to apologize for not posting for the 3 months.  I have made cards but I haven't felt much like blogging.  I am hoping to get back into blogging on a regular basis.  I will try to post something at least a couple of times a week.  I have been getting a head start on my Christmas cards this year so you will be sure to see something new.  Enough of the chatter lets get to the card.

This was the card I sent to my niece (a little bit late).  I thought since she was getting this late the snail would be appropriate.  I saw this sketch on Splitcoaststampers and decided to use it to create this card.  I don't remember the sketch number.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Button Buddies, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Paper: Whisper White, Peach Parfait, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Ice Cream Parlor DSP
Ink: Melon Mambo, Black, Various Markers
Accessories: Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Nestabilities Dies, Dot Embossing Folder, Rhinestone, Dimensionals
