The card base was a lavender card stock and I mounted a layer of off white card stock that had been run through the Cuttlebug using the D'vine Swirls embossing folder. Before adhering it to the front of the card I ran a piece of ribbon around the layer so it could be wrapped around the back side of the off white layer. I like the color combination of the lavender and green.

There was one sheet that had the tiny white flowers printed on it so I took one of my flower punches and punched out several giving the flowers the lavender edge.

Today's card is totally different from any I've posted so far. It was actually made a couple of years ago but I found the picture in my photo files. In the last couple of years I have neglected my stencils because stamping seems to go more quickly. Cards made with pieces that have been dry embossed have a completely different look than stamped cards. I need to do some again.
This card was made by dry embossing the palm tree, sun and elephant using Lasting Impressions papers with L I stencils and also using the L I Software which coordinates with stencils to make the fence with flowers.
I dry embossed the three items first and cut them out. The sun was mounted on a light blue card stock using pop dots. The palm tree was adhered to the card next. Using the L I Software I printed out a fence with flowers along it attached that over the bottom edge of the card.
When I embossed the elephant, I embossed an extra "trunk" so that I could pop it to give it some dimension. I think a small child would enjoy this card for a birthday or maybe even a get well card.

The teddies were colored with my Copic markers. I added some White Liquid Applique under the skates to give it a snowy look and also on the "fur" of their hats. The layers were mounted on a card base which had been run through the Cuttlebug using one of the snowflake embossing folders.

The day is about over for me and with the two granddaughters here I almost forgot to even try to get a card posted.
I guess I'm reverting to another quickie card, but I think this one has a different look to it. The beautiful flower is a stamp from Penny Black which I adhered to a piece of off white card stock which which was slightly wider and long enough that I could add the punched edge with a Martha Stewart design. The card base is SU Pumpkin Pie which was run through the Cuttlebug using a Cuttlebug folder I bought from an Australian web site. I had to have it because of the butterflies on it.

I have two young granddaughters staying here until Friday evening. They are school age so I hope to still be able to post something while they are here.
I hope all of you are staying warm and safe. The weather in much of the country has been pretty mean this year.
Thanks for stopping by!

The flower was cut out and mounted on a layer of off white card stock which had been run through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I then cut a layer of SU Chocolate Chip card stock and rounded the corners of both the off white and brown papers. The very front of the card was run through the CB using the D'vine Swirls embossing folder.
I like the results after all. What do you think? Thanks for stopping by and come back soon!

There is a new Hero Arts Silhouette Fern (K5314) which I thought about ordering a while back but then I realized I already have one very similar to it from Hero Arts.......just a little smaller. So using my old, ink-stained stamp, I added the design randomly to the card front. I didn't reink the stamp each time so that some would be slightly lighter.
Then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and mounted that piece on the SU Wild Wasabi card stock. The flower is made up of two layers of "Art Flowers" which just happened to be the right color and a matching brad to fasten the two together. I adhered the flower to the card using pop dots.
Old supplies used: Brad from Lasting Impressions, Flowers from Hero Arts, Retired stamp from Hero Arts

His party was everything Spiderman so I bought some puffy stickers at Michael's and then I remembered that the Spiderweb embossing folder could be used for more than just Halloween. I adhered some of the stickers to the front of the card after it had been run through the Cuttlebug and I was done.
As with most children that age, the cards were ignored and he tore into the packages. Then when the packages were all opened they asked him to open the cards. He took each out of their envelopes, gave them a quick glance and they were all thrown on to the floor!!!
Well, maybe if his mother saves all his birthday cards as I did with the ones our daughters received, maybe someday when he gets bigger he'll enjoy the card better then..........then again maybe he won't.
Thanks for stopping by.............watch for something a little better tomorrow.

The layer under the white punched edge is a dark purple which coordinates with the dark shades in the flowers. The Martha Stewart punch seemed to really dress up this card even more.
Be sure to stop back tomorrow as I will be posting the final two Quickie cards. Thanks for stopping by today. :)

Butterflies are made with a Martha Stewart punch and the layers with the sentiment are made with Spellbinders Labels 4.
I have three or four more quickie cards I may post and then I'll be moving on to something else. I have appreciated the email comments I have received as well as the comments left on my blog page. It's always nice to know that someone is looking at the page. :)
Thanks for coming by. Hope you are having a great day!

The embossing on this card is done with a Cuttlebug folder I bought from Australia..........yes, when I saw it I "had to have it" and could only find it at the time from a web site in Australia. The folder is called "Flower Fantasy". The web site is: http://www.fatcatscardcorner.com.au They have other exclusive folders.
Thank you for stopping by and letting me know how you like the cards. Come back again soon!
