I love this sketch! It is so whimsical and cried for soft colors! :) If you wish to play along here's the LINK .

I used a foof-fa-la kit on this card and an autumn leaves bird stamp. I added some pearls, little primas, lace ribbon, lots of cuttlebugging, and a fiskars lace punch edge. I also, decorated the inside but couldn't get a good photo of it! :O I hope it inspires you to play along!! Have a great evening! ~Lori

Today's challenge at SCS was to create a card using pleats. Here's what I came up with. Thanks for stopping by!! :D
I had fun creating these two cards! They measure 4 x 4 and 4 x 3 1/4 . I Cuttlebugged parts of the cards before adding anything else. I like the dimension and texture the CB adds to a card! I paper pieced the bird in two different kinds of paper. For the most part, I think the rest is fairly self explanatory. :D


Paper: Stampin' UP card stock ( pink passion, certainly celery, white)
Stamps: Autumn Leaves (Mindy's Zoo)
Tools: Punches, nestabilities, Cuttlebug
Accessories: brads, rub-ons, flocked flower brad, velvet ribbon


Monday, Jan. 26, 2009 CCEE Valentine Treat Bag

Here's another Valentine treat for you. They are so simple and inexpensive to make! I simply cut the top half of a regular sized, white gift bag. Stamped the polka dots on it. I cut out the hearts by hand with scalloped scissors and ran some of them through the cuttle bug. The hearts are adhered with pop dots. The handle is a small strip of white Card stock stamped with the dots And simply adhered with a tape runner. I added a little bow just to sweeten it up a little bit! :D
My mother will love this......she needs an inexpensive Valentine treat for a church function. I think this will be perfect!
