Good morning, I managed to get cards done and photographed this week!  I'm feeling sort of 'smug', as there are about six or seven new cards to show you. The first ones to share are not really my idea, but I liked them so well, I wanted to make them. That should be complimentary to the artist. Hope it is!!
She is super talented, so be sure and look!
My LATEST obsession?? Ok, I know, it will never end. This is a Memory Box background die. Who can't you say 'hello' to?? Hello, have a happy day... Hello, Happy special day, birthday, anniversary, etc:, Hello, Get well.... Hello, Thinking of you. Seems endless to me! All the cards were done with the famous "I can't wait to get rid of you patterned paper." The difference is the white or turquoise fronts and the embellishments. The feathers came from Joy crafts. I just sponged them with distress inks. Thanks for looking and have a lovely day!!
Wait!! One more with the birthday background. Had a hard time getting the white to look white and the balloons to look glitzy!

It started Monday, after Easter. I laid out  blue paper on the table and started cutting 'pieces' from the Spellbinders Divine Eloquence die. I've had it for awhile, liked it, and put it away. Here is the link.   There are 4 dies. This top card shows 3. The small ornate oval is on the inside. The flowers are purchased, Petaloo. The cut butterflies are from a Hero Arts stamp & flower set I got on E-bay. Did I mention that I did 8 cards?

For this one I used printed paper for the background cut. I added Spellbinders labels 28 & labels Decorative 28 They fit nicely together.

The inside of the cards are the Divine Eloquence label center with an oval scripture verse. Usually most of my cards go to churches. I've been trying to do non-embellished cards (FLAT) as the postage is much less. I love the vintage or flowery cards, so it is hard for me to do otherwise. Hopefully they can used the embellished cards for a personal greeting.
Have a nice Thursday!
