Creative Overload!

Hang on to your pants.  I'm about to start a creative overload!  


Here is the deal… I created these cards sometime last week and they are sitting pretty on my desk.  I shared a few on my Facebook Fan page and then crazy set in.  


Tonight I stopped in my tracks and pulled out paper, ink and a punch.  You can get a sneak peek of that creative process on my FB fan page.  I was over the moon to stop packing and just let my creative side shine.  Touching paper and ink just makes a girl all better.  

Ready? Let's get to it…

This stamp set just makes me giggle.  I love the saying "yippie skippee" and that's the name of the set I used.  Check out the rest of the greetings in this set HERE.  They are SO fun!  I went a little crazy with this card and added a few stitches.  I love how layering the ribbons creates fun texture.  Below you can see all the supplies I used.

This was another card that we made at my Jacksonville demonstrator meeting.  We had three make n takes that day and this one I love because it coordinates with the Chalk Talk Framelits and you can purchase this as a bundle.  

This card doesn't have too many elements but it's elegant with the Vanilla, Black and a splash of Strawberry Slush color.  

Tip: You can see on the last photo that I created a banner.  To get a little more depth to the banner I folded the top piece over to create a loop.  I made sure not to adhere the loop down so this piece would have a little more dimension.

    You ceartainly did have a stampin evening and what fabulous cards…each one so different….the first one (to me) is typical you and the others are wonderful but we don't get to see that side of you often (enough!).   TFS!
