A Couple of Forgotten Cards...

I was really worried that I might not have anything to share with you this week. I finally found my camera, which has been MIA for almost a month, but was pretty upset when I discovered that the ten or so photos of recent projects were corrupted and unusable! Unfortunately all of these projects had been given away as gifts too so tracking down new photos was not going to be an easy task!

Since I could not post what I had planned to I went pouring through my old project photos and found 2 cards that I never got around to sharing (occasionally procrastination pays off!) So here they are:

This first one was really fun to make, I actually made it for my chiropractor to thank him for being such a good sport with my daughter (she freaked out and went into total hysterics when she saw a skeleton in a corner of the room). I forgot to share this project because he never did get the
card, on the way to his office Gabby's water bottle sprung a leak and completely drenched it! Oh well...it's the thought?
I used the Just Jawing stamp set that I earned free during a promotion this fall. It's a really fun and trendy set. I just wish I had more chances to use it!...Hmmm... I have a couple of teen cousins with B-days coming up...It just might get inked again soon!
Just Jawing, Classic stripes
Paper: Kraft, Whisper White, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss
Basic black, VersaMark, Encore Silver, basic grey marker
Tools & Acc.:
Top Note die, small star punch, Tombow adhesive, Chunky Essentials silver glitter. Pacific Point Striped GG ribbon.

This next card was the first one I made when I got my Beautiful Butterflies die (I love it!!). The Butterflies are the perfect size for cards or scrapbook pages, and they layer beautifully. I pulled the colour combo directly from the Urban Garden DSP (Retiring{sigh}) and the layout was based on an old sketch challenge from SCS . I hummed and hawed for a long time about what I could use for the butterflies body and in the end I settled on pleating some satin Kiwi Kiss ribbon (using sticky strip) and adding a clear rhinestone brad for the head.

Paper: Baja Breeze, Not quite navy, Kiwi Kiss, Taste of textiles vellum & Urban Garden DSP
Baja Breeze & Not Quite Navy
Tools & Acc.:
Beautiful Butterflies die, Cosmo fine glitter. kiwi kiss satin ribbon, clear rhinestone brad, sticky strip.

That's it for tonight. The lady in brown is supposed to be delivering my new catalogue and preview goodies tomorrow, so hopefully I will have something cool to share then. {Eeek!} I can hardly wait!!!

-Happy Stampin'!

Nadia These cards are great! I have only made one card with the Just Jawing but it is my daughter's "signature" set and she just loves it.

I love your idea to use the ribbon for the body of the butterfly! How creative! Thanks for sharing.
