Leigh's party

My friend Leigh had a party a few weeks ago and these are the cards we made.

This first one uses the new Fun Flowers die from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Love that die! The leaves were made by cutting of the petals off the flower cutout. I used the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and debossed the front side. Very cool effect. We also used the "air blower thingie" (aka color spritz tool). Another very cool effect, but you can't see it very well in the photos. It adds a misted look to it.

Ingredients: Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi, and Soft Suede cs, Melon Mambo, Soft Suede ink, Fresh Notes stamp set, and vintage brads.

My friend Susan asked if we could make this card at the party. It's on pg 194 in the catalog. I thought is was a regular sized card but it's actually only 3x3. Super cute. Used Pocket Silhouettes stamp set, Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake ink, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Very Vanilla cs, Smooch Top Coat, Very Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, pearl and mini library clip. I loved this little card.
