Vintagy Card for Embellish Magazine Challenge


I made this card for the Embellish Magazine Challenge.  We had to create a Vintage project using Green, Yellow and Rust.  I used some white CTMH cardstock for the card and some vintagy green patterned paper from Costco.  I cut the edges of the patterned paper using my fiskars scissors and added liquid pearls. 

The middle yellow and white paper with the sentiment is from some
scrap paper I had leftover that looks vintagy to me also and it was the
perfect shade of yellow.  The sentiment is from a PTI stamp.
The center of the card with the sentiment was cut using my Cricut.  I also added two diamond stickers to the sentiment for that extra pop.  The dragonfly is from a CTMH stamp that I added glitter to - its super sparkly in real life. =)  The rust color bled a little when
I went over it with a glue pen. 
Enjoy.  Naz

A Tweet Little Bird-Day Card

I made this sweet little birthday card for one of my best friends.
You can click on the pictures for more detail.  I think it came out
adorable looking...and it was really alot of fun to make.  I loved
coloring the birdhouses and then cutting them out and "hanging"
them from the "tree branch".
Bird, birdhouse and outside sentiment stamps are from Unity. 
The "tree branch" is really a flourish from a CTMH stamp.  And
the frame and inside sentiment are PTI stamps.  All of the paper
is from CTMH.  The ribbon is from the Craft Expo.  I also used
my fiskars scissors, my Liquid Pearls, and my Copics to decorate.

Hope you enjoy it!!  Naz

Flourished Blessings - H2H Challenge


This card was made for the H2H....Leaves and Trees Challenge.
I made a long and lean card using white daisy CTMH cardstock and some Costco paper - which really goes well with all the fall stuff.  I used some cocoa CTMH cardstock and punched the edges.  Tied some twine around the cardstock and glued it to the card.  I embossed my leaf with gold embossing powder, cut it out and then foam mounted on the card.  I added a little bit of the twine to the leaf edge so it looks like its tied to the card and just hanging on by a string.  The leaf turned our really pretty click on the image for a better view if you like.
