Tasteful Trim 1

This is the another version. Doesn't balance out quite right... Think it might just be too busy with the zigzags - see next post for one more try!

Tasteful Trim

This one is better than the first one (couple) I did, but still just come together very well! Sometimes you just can't fix it! haha Still, if you don't play, you don't know....

Hello Doily

This is the neatest stamp! It positively looks real when embossed! This one is in melon mambo on white with pearls. Pretty plain and neat all at the same time! I'm also certain I cased this from someone talented, but I can't find your name. Let me know for your credit!

Blossom Party

a very poor picture! this is actually river rock and concord grape with vanilla trim. it really started out to be something colorful, summery, flowery - and this is what it morphed into. waaay off what i had in mind, but i do kinda like it! the new lace edge punch is gonna get lots of use!

Simply Soft

these are my first two attempts at casing Karen Barber's color techniques. a bit rough, but tempting enough to keep trying!!

Simply Soft II

i finally managed a nice looking case of Karen Barber's color layering. it still has no sentiment, since i tend to do that right before i send it out - i really want to do more of these!

Delicate Doilies II

i seem to be putting these in backwards of what i want - in retrospect - guess i could think it out a bit before hand!! hahaha this is a dressing up of the card after this one. no sparkles, but the crocheted flowers and retired corduroy buttons make it nice!

Delicate Doilies

this was done for a swap - 5 minutes or less to put together! how hard is that?! the postage stamp punch, a few rhinestones and the hello stamp from happy greetings. it worked well, but wish i had added another layer! thus the card ahead of this one!
