Spellbinders aren't just for cutting...........
Spellbinder dies used: Classic Rectangles
Stamp set used: "Luv Bunnies" by Stampendous
ScrapbookPal is hosting another contest and this time it's for using Spellbinders.  

My card was very simple, yet fun & pretty quick to make and probably doesn't need explanation, but the contest says give instructions, so here goes......

The card is an A2 size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") so, for the embossed panel I used a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" white cardstock which is just slightly smaller than the card base and I carefully placed the 2 Spellbinders rectangle dies in a "frame" configuration and secured them w/ low tack tape.   Before running it through the Cuttlebug, I used an embossing mat and rather than cut the pieces, I only embossed them leaving a nice frame. The little bunny was stamped on a smaller rectangle which I popped up with dimensional tape.  The small flowers and hearts were fussy cut and glued on the panel using Tombow Multi liquid glue. Copic markers were used for the coloring.  

Smile and the world smiles with you

I love Crissy Armstrong's images

Crissy Armstrong is one of the artists for Whimsy Stamps and I LOVE her animal images, especially her penguins.

I love dies

Just a few more Christmas cards I made but never posted.

You've got to check out

Back when I used to post regularly, I occasionally mentioned one of my absolute favorite online stores,, and even now, when I hold workshops, that is one of the very few stores that I eagerly recommend to people.  They are quick as lightning on their shipping, which I might add is FREE w/ a $25 order, NOT $50 or $75 like everyone else, and their prices are great! It is a total Win/Win situation, no matter how you look at it.  
They are holding a little contest right now that involves another of my absolute favorite things, Lawn Fawn stamps.   So I had to jump on this one.  
Lawn Fawn sets used: Happy Easter, Spellbinder dies used: Edgeabilities Bracket Borders 1, Patterned Paper is from Lawn Fawn's Pink Lemonade collection, and the embossing folder is by Darice & is called Wire Fence (I think)

bottom card uses, Lawn Fawn Sunny Skies (sun & clouds), Bon Voyage (plane), and Flying By (sentiment) stamp sets, patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn's Into the Woods collection.

top card uses, Lawn Fawn Bon Voyage (plane), Bannerific & Smitty's ABC's (banner), and Flying By (sentiment.)  The paper is from Lawn Fawn's Daphne's Closet collection, the clouds were cut using either Memory Box or My Favorite Things dies and the cloud embossing folder is by Stampin' Up

Just for my records

Various cards I made over the holidays that I remembered to stop & take photos of.

Lawn Fawn CHA 2014 Catalog Challenge

I had to just pop over and check at Lawn Fawn to see if I was too late to enter this card & after seeing all the entries, I'm thinking... "30 mins. to go, so, not too late, but way out of your league!"  There are some fantastic cards posted for the challenge.  I can't wait to go back over there and start pinning away at some of my favorites.
This card really needs *SpArKLe* added to it, but since it is going to OWH, that would be a big No-No, so sans sparkle it is.  

The sets I used are Bannerific, Hats Off, Sweet Christmas, Plus One, Happy Halloween, Happy Easter and Smitty's ABC's.

OWH Sketch Challenge #201

Even tho' I no longer post, I'm still making cards, and when I saw the weekly sketch challenge today at OWH I felt it was a sign that I should post this one.  I had just finished this card earlier in the day & the only difference was it didn't have the strip across the middle, otherwise it shockingly fit the challenge pretty much to a "T", so I went back & added the middle strip and here it is.
