Friendship gives wings to the heart

Made this card recently, uses pretty fall colors.  The stamps are from SparkleNSprinkle's Bird Swirl Set #432.  I made the flower using the tattered flowers Tim Holtz die.  Ink is Memento - Tangelo.  Hope you like it!

Something new!

There are three new stamp sets just out at Sparkle N Sprinkle, and the design team has been busy making lots of beautiful new sample cards which are now up at the Sparkle N Sprinkle website.  First, a lovely autumn set, love the sayings that go with it too.  Stamp Set 474 Fall Harvest

Then a very pretty Christmas set, and the elegant sayings make it easy to complete your Christmas cards.  This set is just asking to be used with the new velvet glitters!  Stamp set 475 Holiday Foliage

The third set is a birthday set, you can never have too many birthday sets!  Stamp set 476 Abby & Walter's Birthday
  This set has several nice images as well as lots of words to go with!  Here is a birthday gift card holder I made with this set. Isn't the new Reflection velvet glitter a festive touch!  Complete directions for this card are at the Sparkle N Sprinkle website in the gallery.

sparkly tree...

 This weekend I was working on a couple of cards.  I used the Swirly Maple stamp from the Sparkle N Sprinkle (SNS) set Autumn Swirl SS 410, stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and Memento Tangelo.  I wa susing one of those stamping gear sets where you can make a shape in a circle, so used the Leaf Swirl stamp to stamp in a circle around the tree.  Dabbed some Versamark ink on the tree and added SNS Sparkle embossing powder EP 107 to make the tree sparkly - the photo doesn't show the sparkly but it is real pretty in person.  Added a leaf from the Fall Leaves SS 4413 set and then punched a border strip and threaded a striped ribon through it.  Almost gives a plaid look, since the paper was striped also.

Autumn Blessings...

Here is another card made with the Sparkle N Sprinkle set Fall Leaves 441S.  It was made very similiarly to the card I posted Sept. 30, however the blue paper really pops the colors, and I used a different saying from the same stamp set.  The little acorns add a nice touch!
