Hey peeps,

Another Fri card! I stole some time to play again with my PTI set, I hope you dunn mind me using them very often ;) It's a fav of mine and I have been using colors that I wudn't usually use, like the SU! In Color -Melon Mambo used to stamp the background, it's so bright and bold! I luv it. Also, lately I've been using Bazzill textured paper, I dunno, I feel it adds another element to the card! Let me know what you think! Oh yeah, another thing about this card, it seriously only took me about 30mins to create, the hardest part was choosing the colors, everything went easy from there! I hope your wk went well and that you have a good wkend!

P.S: Thank you for your feedback on the embossing question I posted last wk, it got me thinking about what would work best, it helped a lot! :D

Hey there peeps,

A card here using my new Flower die from Nestabillities. I got it for half off over at Joann's, yup, with their coupon you can get them for a lot cheaper, they don't carry a lot of the dies but there are some cute one to choose from! Ok, so Maile got me going on making a flower card ever since I saw here make this one here. I guess it's safe to say I pretty much CASED it, sorta, at least on the flower :D Looks a lot like one flower card I made before, but this one the stitched stem and faux-stitching dominate the card. Pretty simple and girly like!

Question: if you use Nestabillities dies and you use them on other die cutting machines other than a Wizard, how do you use yer cutter to do the embossing so that it's well defined? As you can see, mine isn't well embossed on the edges, any feedback will be greatly appreciated!

Hi ladies,

Ok, so here is the first card using my awesome PTI Giga Guidelines set and I luv luv luv it! I luv that I can make my own background for my cards, so cool. I've also taken time to try new colors I haven't used before, so hence this card--a peachy sort of color (SU! Apricot Appeal) and a light moss, looks great! Let me know what you think! the card is a wedding card, it's very elegant and CAS, been on a CAS kind of mood lately! Can u tell :D

The sec card I made while Tenia visited me the other day, we both made cards for St. Jude's, I'll also be sending this card I made for the Embellish Mag Challenge, found here. Let me know what you think and if you haven't already joined everyone on this cool idea, and if you have time, do make some cards :D It's for a great cause, all made possible by Winter (Winter Wonderland)!
