Now here is my first card!

This card was made using the beautiful new Birthday Blessings set!  I stamped the image twice.  I cut out one using the Out of the Box Nestie technique that my DT sister Julie taught me. You can see her tutorial HERE.  I colored the teacup and saucer with copic markers and cut it out and popped it up over the original image.  I stamped the image again onto the same designer paper as the background and paper pieced the tablecloth.  The SU! designer paper is embossed with an SU! embossing folder. 
 
I stamped the sentiment and masked off the verse to make the little tag to tie on at the end of the pearls and lace.  I punched lots of Martha Stewart flowers from the same designer paper and colored them darker with a copic marker before placing them on the card.  To finish the card I put little dots in the flower centers with a white paint pen and then sprayed the card with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist!

I hope you don't mind but I have another card to show you using one of the really cool grunge sets!!!  I love these grunge sets!!  So great for teens or for masculine cards or anyone for that matter! 

I stamped the butterfly image from the God's Love set all over the designer paper and hand wrote some of the verses from the set to mimic graffiti.  I tore strips of the same K & Co designer paper, glued them here and there before running the whole piece through my Cuttlebug with the cuttlebug folder (the name of which escapes me at the moment!).  I sponged the back ground with Tim Holtz distress ink too.  Then I stamped the main image on another piece of the same designer paper, heat embossed it with black embossing powder and cut it out with the Spellbinders Labels 18.  I sponged the edges before adhering with foam tape.  Then I attached the cross charm with a paper clip and added the brads.


This is the inside! 
This is what the designer paper looked like before I grunged it all up!  LOL!

Thank you so much for indulging me for such a long post!  
I can't wait for you to see what the rest of the team did with these sets!! 

Your next stop is to the
Enjoy!
