A close up of the pearls because they are just so beautiful. I've become addicted and add them to all my cards right now.My BIL & SILs 5th anniversary card. The embossing folder is gorgeous and I really couldn't bring myself to put anything other than a sentiment and little perals on it.

Accessories: Pearls, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder, Modern Label punch.
My friend's birthday card. You can not see it that well in the picture so click to bring it up bigger but the pearls are in the center of the embossed flowers and there are also small pearls on her shirt as buttons and in her hair tie.

Easel cards are all the rage right now. They're easy to make but look very cool since they stand up to display the front and bottom inside of the card. These are the first few that I made. I really like them, the monocramatic yellow is my favorite.

Colours: Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Accessories: Butterfly Embosslit die, Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper, Modern Label and Word Window Punch.

I am so happy with how this turned out! Everything is from Stampin' Up!
I used the new mini milk carton big shot die cut from a designer series paper called Flock Together. I fastened them closed with the new Sending Love Epoxy brads in Chocolate Chip.The cute little holder is from a tutorial I purchased on Becky Robert's blog. Check out her stuff it is awesome!
I tied a bow using the new satin ribbon from the mini and then accented it with white feathers.
They are so cute I can't stop making them!

Still lots of Valentine inspired cards here. Part of that is because i've been sending many of these cards to my Secret Sister, the other is because the wonderful people at Stampin' Up! are sending $2 of every I {heart} Hearts stamp set sold to Haiti relief efforts. So take a look at how great this set is and buy one today :)Stamp Set: I {Heart} Hearts
Colours: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon
This card was inspired by one that I saw surfing the web. I just loved the look of white craft ink on the kraft cardstock. I changed the design a bit from the one I saw, making it a little more "me"
I was seeing these quilted cards everywhere. I wanted to make one but was I too chicken, I really thought it would be too difficult. Turns out its so simple! Start with a piece of cardstock 5.5x4.25 next punch out 1.25 square inches out of patterned or plain cardstock and adhere to the cardstock base. Run through your bigshot with the top note die to get the shape and then run through again with an embossing folder. You can add little stitch marks if you'd like to make it really look like a quilt. You may have to click on the picture to get a close up look at the texture.
Stamp Set: I {Heart} Hearts (little pink heart says love and cut out in center)
Colours: Real Red, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Sending Love Designer Series Paper, Top Note Die, Heart embosslit and Little dots Embossing folder.
Another fast easy and super cute project. Top note die cut out in Real Red, another Top note cut in pattern paper and cut along the perforated marks. Two score marks 1/4 inch each way from the center so that it folds and there is enough space to secure a chapstick. I used large eyelets and ribbon to keep it closed.
