My first card today is actually for the Stampin'B's challenge this week. I was the hostess and asked the team to create a monochromatic card. I used one of the new toys I purchased at Stampfest -- the Cuttlebug frame folder -- actually part of a four-folder set called Heritage. I embossed the Mark's Finest Papers' Lavender Sparkle and then mounted the stamped and matted lilies on it, adding some gem studded brads at the corners.
My next card actually has no stamping at all. This was my first attempt at using a Geo-Die -- what a neat concept! You run your two-sided DP through the Cuttlebug and then bend back the cut-out portions to form the geometric pattern.
This card was made with a Cuttlebug embossing/cutting folder and then sponged. This was actually an experiment -- it might be a little too busy to use very often.
My final card (my sketch challenge card for Wednesday) using my new toys also features one of the embossing folders in the 4-folder Heritage set from Cuttlebug/Provocraft. The daisy image is from Mark's Finest Papers' new set, Greet the Day with Gerber.
