Here is a Christmas card I made using my beloved Cuttlebug with the Christmas Tree embossing folder - When I posted it on my Splitcoast Gallery (I'm Gemini Mum over there, if anyone wants to look) I realised it looked rather plain and boring. So I added a liberal dose of Kindyglitz (thanks for the suggestion Linda) and voila! It looks much better!
This is another card I turned around after a disaster. I initially embossed poinsettia flowers all over the metallic bronze cardstock and brayered over some darker ink to try to get an the Metallic Brayering effect I saw over on Linda's blog , but sadly it just looked ugly. So I flipped it over and left it plain. As usual, the card stock is Stampin' Up! and so is this stamp set: Season of Joy from the Spring Mini Catalogue.
......and here it is again!
Ok, this one is a birthday card made for my son's prep teacher (Happy Birthday Mr B!). I know I'm not the only one who struggles with masculine cards. I "manned it up" by using Old Olive with a splash of bright colour. I can't recall the manufacturer of this paper - I'll have to check and come back to edit when I find it. The letters were cut with the trusty Cricut Expressions machine. The sentiment is from a clear Hero Arts set.
And finally, a birthday card for one of my daughter's friends who turned 8 yesterday.
This one used one of my favourite stamp sets, Garden Whimsy again, SU! I also used one of my fave Cuttlebug embossing folders on the green layer - Swiss dots.
