Cup of tea!

This is a sweet card that I totally cased from Dawn McVey, couldn't wait to try out her use of the spoon stamp as a background base for the card, now hopefully on to some of my own designs.
Thanks for looking.

Retirement Card

While looking at some of my photos I discovered a retirement card I made last month and forgot to post so here it is: As you can probably see I used Kraft (yes Kraft, this was before the new colors were announced) card stock for the card base. Sizzix Star die, punched 3 different size stars of the colors in the horizontal piece of DSP. A little green ribbon tied in a knot (attached with a glue dot) and two tags one from the "Tiny Tags" stamp and the other from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Three round rhinestones set on the bottom of the zig-zag strip of paper, stamped a few outline stars on the white envelope and called it done!

Grad card

This is a funky little graduation card for a very good friend's youngest son. The colors are hard to see, but they are the new Daffodil Delight card base with a frame of Rich Razzleberry topped off with whisper white (almost his school colors). I used the new Go, Graduate stamp set from Stampin' Up (love, love, love the clear stamps), ran some Razzelberry and Daffodil yellow through the Sizzix Star die and layered the stars on top of each other and popped them with dimensions. Wrapped a length of Razzelberry polka dot ribbon (the underneath side) around the whisper white and tied the knot so the pokies showed. Colored in the tennis shoes with glitter yellow (almost Daffoldil) pen and called it a day.
Haven't finished the inside yet, but will add it to the post when done.
