Look at this.........

I have 3 creations for you!!!! Hello my friends and "Happy Tuesday" to you. Can you believe that I was able to pull that many creations off? Well, I am behind with my deadline, due to those headaches/migraines but Betsy is such a sweetheart that she said "don't worry about it". But to be honest, that is not me, if I tell you I'll do something, I'll do it. In this case it is just 2 days late

My first post is of yet another card with this stunning stamp set from http://www.innovativestampcreations.com/ which is called Birch Tree Painting. IRL this card has so much texture, too bad that it does not show in the picture.

Birch Tree Painting embossed


Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, DCWV La Cream , PTI Vintage Cream

Ink: VersaMark and Chocolate Brown embossing powder for the tree,SU Chocolate Chip, Chalk Box Chestnut Roan and Creamy Brown for the tag

Stamps: ISC Birch Tree Paintings

Accessories: Chocolate satin ribbon, Nesties Petite Ovals, dimensionals, Chocolate half pearls by Kaiser

What do you think about this one?

The second card I have for you, was done with the also new set by ISC which it is called Nature Silhouettes II and I used the Daisy like flower of this set today plus the gorgeous larger size butterfly. Love it!!!!! I had a hard time trying to figure out what to use as a BG so I chose one of my favorite Basic Grey pads "Ambrosia" and this cream/orange paper looked just right.

Have a look at my "for making me smile" card


Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Basic Grey Ambrosia

Ink: Chalk Box Dark Brown, Chestnut Roan,Creamy Brown

Stamps: ISC Nature Silhouettes II

Accessories: Nesties Label Tags, pearl brads from Mike's Bridal section, satin ribbon from my stash,

Be honest, does the paper work with this stamp? To give the butterflies some more dimension I curled the wings and only attached them with a dab of Tombo glue. You probably can't see it in the picture, but the paper is distressed around the edges, which came that way, so I used some sponging on the focal image to make it blend a bit more.

Last but not least I have a card set for you. Yes, Betsy asked us to create a mini cards set with 3x3 cards using the third new set which is called Dainty Daisies and has Daisies in all kind of sizes. Last month I ordered some Pale Plum cs from SU and had yet to use it so I decided on going Pale Plum for this one. I created a very simple set, but by adding some bling and pearls I think they came out all right.

See for yourself

Dainty Daisies mini card set


Paper: SU Pale Plum PTI white

Ink: SU Pale Plum

Stamps: Dainty Daisies by ISC

Accessories: white satin ribbon, half pearls by Kaiser and purple crystals from my stash (I believe they are from Japan {I bought quite a few of them while we were there ;P}

The little box is a simple one I just whipped up cutting some Pale Plum cs 6.25"X6.25 " and scored it on my Scor-Pal @ 1.5" on all 4 sides. The lid is done in the same fashion but scored at 1" on all four sides in PTI white cs and was cut to 6 3/8"x6 3/8 (just slightly larger than the bottom) To add a little to it I've tried to use my new Martha Stewart edger punch, but that darn thing does not like PTI cs, so I gave up before I broke it and cut a new piece and used my trusty scallop scissors I've had for years. The sentiment on the lid of the box is not one that is included in the Dainty Daisies set, I cheated a little and pulled it from the Passion Flower set which is also available from ISC.

Wheeew, I did it!!!! I completed my post. Thank you so very much my friends for stopping by today. I have to clean my stamp room now, but I hope to be back tomorrow. I really liked the OCC challenge so I might just do that a little later ;P.

Oh Sabrina! These are all so lovely!! I love the sentiment in the oval on the first card. The second card made me smile...I love the colors and the ribbon/brads with the sentiment! Oooh and that box set...so pretty and elegant with the pink and pearls!

I am really glad to hear you are feeling better!

I hope you are starting to feel better Sabrina! Betsy is right and your health is more important! But wow these cards are incredible! That sentimetn and the tree on the first card are so moving and you did a great job with the layout and I adore the paper with the stamp on the second! I of course love the color combo of brown and orange! And the third with the gift notes and the beautiful box is such a great idea! You blow me away!
