Lots of cards 3-6-11

Hello. I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was restful and I got a lot of cards done. I'm happy to say that I have a box of 131 cards going to tomorrow.

Here are some cards I did. I copied this from Scrapping The Magic and love this technique to make the petals.

Take 8 circles of doubled sided patterned paper (or glue 2 sheets together like I did on 2 of these); I used a 2" punch. I scored each side with my paper cutter and an embossing tool. I then punched a whole near the end of each one (actually did 4 at a time with my Big Bite). the scalloped circle in the center is 1.75" and I punched a hole in it too - then used the brad to put them all together.

This one I used one-sided paper but inked the blank side.

This card was done for the OWH sketch challenge - you can see the sketch here.

This card is for Hazel's Christmas card challenge. Use an embossing technique.

These next cards were inspired by Paper Therapy Ponderings Blog. I found her and Scrapping the Magic while going thru a couple of blog hops this weekend. Blog hops are a good way to see the work of many different crafters.

The stamp is my from new stash from Stampin Up. Love this little birdie. Was going to put a sentiment on it, but I just couldn't do another step! I made 3 each of the four color combos.

I wish I could stay home and scrap tomorrow but that's not going to happen - work calls.

Keep your heart open and change a life with your creativity. Thanks for stopping by, Susan
