The first card pictured I used the Upsy Daisy stamp. I love this stamp - it is one of the stamps I chose in my new demonstrator package. This card will be one I will be offering in my stamp-a-stack of Birthday cards coming up next week. I was so sad when SU! retired ballet blue but I am loving the new marina mist color. I love combining it with the new early espresso color. The impression was made with the Final Press embossing folder.
The second card was so fun as I wanted to try a new layout. I found this layout here on her post dated 7/28/10. The card I cased was done by Karen Moody. The sentiment "24-7" is holding the card closed. You can't tell from the picture but the bird is cut out and popped up using dimensionals.
