The book is made with Spellbinders Grand Labels Twenty-Three. I embellished the book with the Spellbinders Poinsettia and fern leaves, setting on a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die cut, made with Gold paper. I made the stick pins and the center of the poinsettia is Recollections flat-backed rhinestones. The sentiment is JustRite Stamp embossed on a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and backed with a larger Labels Eighteen, the beads are flat-backed Recollections.

This card was a challenge, as it is a different sized than I am used to making. The card size is determined by the 3D M-Bossabilities folder.
The jury is still out on this card, as it is totally different than I usually make.

The background is an embossing folder I got with my e-Bosser, (don't remember the name of it) I used the Belleek method and inked the negative. The Butterfly is a Hero Art stamp and I fussy cut it and attached bling I used Glossy Accents to attach the body and put foam dots to raise the wings. The Happy Birthday stamp is a Close To My Heart stamp. I corner-rounded the bottom corners. I cut the background of the butterfly with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Six and turned it slightly and used "this and that" foam dots to raise it. The edge die is from the Spellbinders Vintage Lace Accents set. I used Versa Color, Lilac and Celadon. The cards are made alike, except for the color.
The insides I used the same background and edge die as the front. The stamp is JustRite and the die is JustRite-SpellbindersVintage Labels Four

6x6 card: The Merry Christmas stamp is a Close To My Heart stamp. I embossed it with white embossing powder (that looks more cream than white), which in this case, turned out great. I cut 2 of the Flourish Trims and placed them above and below the Merry Christmas. The Flourish Trim is a beautiful design, I am so blessed to have won the Friday Challenge over at JustRite stamps and receive this die.
The blue card is layered, but I did not layer the red one and I cannot decide which I like best.

This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 step card with baby blue and gold embossing. I colored the little girl with water color pencils and outlined the die cut with Versa Color baby blue. The "Merry Christmas" is a Close to my Heart stamp, stamped in baby blue. The snow flakes were punch with The Paper Studio small punch.The sentiment in the center of the card is a JustRite stamp I embossed in Gold and edged with baby blue.
When I went for a follow-up to the doc after my Asthma attack, he told me I needed to wear a mask to go outside. And those are ugly...so, I blinged them, indifferent colors to match my outfits. I even started making masks for asthma and cancer patients and will take them to my Craft Fair in October. One cancer patient is already enjoying hers.
