More Daffodils

The image of daffodils is by Designed2Delight.    The challenge at Card Ideas is to CASE a card from the design team gallery.  I chose this card by Faith to CASE:

Isn't it beautiful?  I changed the paper, image and used different embossing. The center of the daffodils are printed off a second time, colored, cut out and then popped onto the tops of the flowers.

Pippen Polka Dot Birthday

This is Pippen and created by Digital Delights.  As I was making this card, I had a birthday in mind and then forgot to include a birthday greeting. Oh, well, it can go inside.


Clearly Pressed

Not clearly impressed, however.  As I mentioned in a previous post, I am having fun with the new technique of embossing cut outs onto the CS as it is run through the Cuttlebug folder.  I combined this technique with the sketch at Clearly i Stamp and found out I like the technique better as a CAS card.  But this is what I came up with  - so be it.   I used the stamps, Blooming Bouquet,  by Clear Dollar stamps.  There are die cut stencils for it too which would give so much more dimension, but I don't have them yet. Enough talk.  Here is my card:

Apply this Applique

This is the monthly digi by D2D and I love it.  It is going to be so fun to use.  Can think of all kinds of DP's to print on.  I printed this four times in order to get all the papers I wanted for piecing.  The flowers on the tree are from a Cuttlebug die .Can you tell I am anxious for Spring?

I.. Am.. A.. Ro.. Bot

I had just finished this Valentine's card for one of my grandsons (3 1/2) when my daughter told me that his sister (15 mo) just said her first sentence, "I am a robot."  She was mimicking her brother.  Maybe I should give the card to her !

A Patriotic Heart

I'm sure that this little girl is covering her heart in order to say The Pledge of Allegiance but I am taking the liberty to use it in a little different way.  Just picked up these heart buttons last week and love them.  DP are left over pieces.  Digi is by Stamping Boutique.  This card will go to OWH
I don't know that you can see it in the photo but I used a silver gel pen to highlight the stars and the buttons on her shoes.  (Remember - no glitter for OWH cards.)

Animals - All Sorts

Don't you love all the digis now?  So many cute animals to choose from.  This darling giraffe is by Digital Delights.  The giraffe is a favorite animal of one of my grandsons so this Valentine will be for him. The sentiment is by Verve. I added some faux stitching on side of panel to match the piece of DP  (love) that I used.
