more pictures...

I have been trying to get back to crafting, in anticipation of the new catalog dropping on July 1. Plus, people seem to be having babies left, right & centre, and as summer is (apparently) upon us, so are weddings & showers & get togethers.

This first card was made for a set of (girl & boy) twins that an ex-coworker gave birth to earlier this month. I love the rock & roll technique, but got a bit carried away with the sponging. oops? I used the two little ladybugs from the same set as the butterfly (Garden Whimsy) on the inside - in pink & blue, of course!

And then, I liked that card so much, I kinda case'd it myself, for my parents anniversary card. I switched it up a bit, but same idea. Nixed the sponging though, hah.

I had to make a card for my coworker who's getting married this coming weekend, so broke out my Black Tie Birdies (by Verve). I incorporated her wedding colors (cream, black & yellow), and really like how it turned out. I used SU's black and iridescent ice embossing power on the birdies, and colored the balloons & bowties with SU markers - blush, apricot & saffron.

One last card for tonight's post - this one for a friend's wedding shower that is coming up next month. I used the large SU Circle Die for the Big Shot, and a pattern from the wonderfully talented Patty Bennett. I used the wedding colors for the card, and really love how the dress turned out. I'm not 100% sold on the sentiment though. Thoughts on how to fix that?

the sentiment's fine... personally, i'd run the edges through some ink and pop it up on dimensionals... i'd also either punch 1/16th holes in the scalloped circle or dot them with a white gel pen...

lol, i can't keep quiet... i'd also wouldn't put the sentiment on an angle... and now big mouth shut! :P

i love how the Rock and Roll technique worked out on the butterfly cards... they're all really lovely... :)
