Here is a card made with the Stampin’ Up set called “Lotus Blossom”.  The set is today’s blog candy, and even though it’s not a tulip I think it can pass as one. Smiley.BinocularsAni

A little sentiment tag was tucked under the ribbon and a butterfly was added to anchor it.

For the main image the lemon was stamped, masked and stamped again.  For just a little dimension a third lemon was stamped, colored, cut out and then adhered to the main image over the front lemon.

TIP: The coloring of the third lemon included using a black Copic Marker on the cut edge.  I think this gives a more finished look and helps the cut image stand out even more. Smiley.Yes1Ani

Here are a couple of cards that I made for Valentine’s Day.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

A sparkly clear button and black sequin were added to the red hearts for a touch of fun.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The large heart was die cut out of the card base.  By adhering a piece of double sided designer paper (dp) to the inside of the card, both sides of the dp can be seen.  And it dresses up the inside of the card, too.  LOVE!

This card was made for a friend’s son who has (along with his wife of course *grin*) added a new baby boy to their family.  I love this sweet patterned paper, and it has done most of the work here.

The sentiment is from a new-to-me set from SU.  It’s dolled up with some oval punched cardstock.  The entire sentiment is popped up for some fun dimension.

Added some glitter to the snowflake centers for a little pop on this pretty designer paper.

And here’s another card using the Tri Square die.  So easy and fun to add some lovely patterns.  It’s a great way to use up some scraps, too, if you’ve got some.

The holly was colored with Copics and then fussy cut.

A little embossing adds some interest to the white space, and each ball is accented with a white gel pen.

With the image and sentiment mounted together on the acrylic block, it was easy to get them stamped straight on every time.

Glitter tape adds some sparkle and texture while keeping the cards nice and flat for mailing.
