Life's Short, Live it with Zest

One of last month's projects.  Base is whisper white embossed with Layered Leaves EF
Add a layre of Pear Pizazz then another whisper white stamped with Lemon zest in Daffodil Delight on the left and sentiment to the right with Memento Black.

Stamp another lemon whole and a slice with Daffodil Delight  and 2 leaves with Pear Pizazz on a scrap of whisper white and punch it out with the Lemon builder punch.  Cut the lemon slice in half and save one for use on the inside.  Layer with dimensionals as shown.

Stamp the matching sentiment on the inside and glue the other half of the lemon slice on the inside.  Easy peasy card.

Oh So Eclectic Case

I saw a card by Claire Daly that used this card sketch but the colors did not work for me and I did not have the DSP she used so I changed it up and this is what we made this past month's party.

Basecard is Berry Burst with another layer of Berry Burst on top diecut with the Eclectic Layers framelets.  A layer of silver glimmer paper behind the cutout for some extra shimmer.  Stamp the little tulips from the stampset in Berry Burst.  Stamp the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and punch it out with Pretty Label.   Stamp the leaves with old olive and cut out a soft sky flower and the powder pink flower after stamping with Berry Burst again.  Diecut all the pieces and mount as shown with some Rhinestone basic jewels and Gold faceted gems (because the clear ones are on backorder) but the variation I think is still pretty.

Kunal's birthday popup with Mama Elephant Party Animals

 I made a bunch of cards using Stampin' Up's Birthday Blast stampset and diecut to embellish in different ways. I came across this Party Animals set from Mama Elephant and love the little creatures celebrating and had to put them in the box.  Made one for Kunal, one of son's best friends and one for my niece in Melon Mambo.
A little $$ tucked away in the back and a banner personalizing the card I think makes it sweet.

Hope they like it!
