I have an announcement

Starting tomorrow I am going to be having a two week long sale in my Etsy Store, all ribbons will be reduced to just $3.00 each!! That is like buying three and getting your fourth ribbon free!!

I hope if you've been thinking about buying some ribbon you'll take advantage of this sale and grab some up! 

on to some fresh new cards. Of course I've been using my Imagine like CRAZY! I just put in a fresh sheet of paper and played with some images. I cut this butterfly out of the Imagine More Cards cart. Then I covered the whole thing with liquid glue and sprinkled it with glitter. It looks like a micro beaded image, all soft and glittery now, I LOVE IT!! 
 To create the card, I added the strip of Girl's Paperie, then added the block of My Minds Eye glitter paper. I cut a strip of Echo Park and then punched it with my scallop punch. I then cut out a journal block using my preloaded Imagine shapes ( this is my most favorite shape of all!!) and I cut off the top third at the top of the stripe paper. I added a couple strands of twine and topped the bow with a button, then I gently folded my wings up a bit on the bfly and I used Extreme Adhesive Squares from Glue Arts to stick it down.
I cut out the phrase from the Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Cart and added a tiny gem for the top of the I.

 Next is another card using the same color scheme and more of that MMEye paper, this time turned to the side, and I matted it with some Pebbles brown paper scraps cut with my deco mini scallop scissors.

 Again, I cut out several of these journal bracket spots in different sizes and keep them on my desk. I grabbed one and put it on my card, layering on some of my beautiful brown crinkled seam binding ribbon. I then cut out this roses image out,  and adding glitter glue to the leaves, and popping the layers up with UCutIt foam. I added a matching button to my Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon bow and adhered that with Glue Arts Adhesive Squares.
 The greeting is a mix of old felt MS letters and the happy phrase from some Echo Park stickers.

I love this sweet little snail image, I again cut it using the Imagine More Cards cart. I kept the image the same, just cut it in layers, using UCutIt foam to pop them up. I added my last little bit of that gorgeous green ribbon in a knot and pierced it with two pretty pins. I added a handcut heart in red and topped it with a teal button and twine. The background paper is Echo park and I used a scrap of that gorgeous Pink Paislee Houndstooth punched with my scallop punch.

Now for some less cutesy cards. I made this card for my hubby's coworker who lost her mother last week. I used some of that MMEye paper for the card base, then added on some MMEye green dot paper as a mat for the Pink Paislee sweetness paper, I left the card pretty flat, only adding some glitter glue to the leaves, and topping the card with some of my Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon, topped with a button and twine. I printed out my greeting, popped it up with some UCutIt and spritzed the card with some Old Lace Mister. I let it dry and added the gem and twine at the end of the tag.

Lastly for today, I have this gratitude card. I grabbed the pocket and greeting from my scraps pile- they are both Teresa Collins- and kept layering. I used a bit of the MMEye paper for the background, layering some Crate paper underneath, then I cut a pink paislee brown paper tag and added that inside the pocket. I added some craft supply ribbon and tied a bow, then added the scallop oval I cut with my Imagine, cutting off the overhang on the tag. I looped some twine, and stapled the extra in place, then I added the label with the greeting and a Petaloo flower with a light orange button and twine.

That is all today, come back tomorrow for a reminder of my Etsy sale and perhaps I will kick it off with a little giveaway!! thanks for coming by!
