CARDS Magazine Publications

I've been a little behind showing you these cards! I especially wanted to share one of them, because I was so excited when I made the card. Do you ever get really excited about what you are creating?

March - CARDS

 May - CARDS

It's interesting now to see that I used a similar color scheme on both. The second card was the one I was excite to post here on my blog. I created it by using several different decorative scissors (so glad I didn't throw those away). I think the effect is really fun! If you try it yourself I'd love to see! I hope you all have a great weekend!

Both of these are FABULOUS Courtney! I love the bold colors and unique flower on the first one, and the fun use of the scissors on the second! Unfortunately I got rid of most of my scissors awhile ago or else I'd be copying this idea for sure!

Both are so awe inspiring. Love the fabric on the top one. It reminds me of your Dot stamp sets. I like the brown on brown of the bottom one. All of those different edges really rock.

I love them both Courtney!!! The second one is wonderful with all the different edges...... I gave all my scissors away to my niece as part of a huge craft gift .... I wonder if I can seek in under the cover of darkness with my night vision goggles and retrieve them :) I posted a card yesterday with Barefoot Summer ...... such an amazing set and so much you can do with it!!!! Love it~~~
