The latest issue of Cardmakers has at least given me some new inspiration. But, I'm ready to move on to some other type of cards for a while.
scalloped circle-Graphically Speaking, used Brocade Cuttlebug folder on it
hearts- George, used DS to size them
rounded corners with corner chomper
added some doodledots
sheer ribbon from Hobby Lobby
computer printed the sentiment
There's still quite a bit of the Valentine themed Little Yellow Bicycle paper left over. I used 3 different pattterns on this one trying to take advantage of it. I punched the heart with a SU punch and ran it through the Cuttlebug.
When I'm doing a card and wind up with 1" strips of white cardstock left over, I save them and have them ready to punch borders out of. This is an old Fiskars border punch. I think the stamp I used is a Studio G. White embossing powder and a little bow and I was done! The paper is more of the LYB, it's sort of a metallic red so embossing on it was a test. I figured with the high gloss on the paper, the heat gun might ruin it but it worked out pretty well.
