Variety of cards and Blog Treat!

The Kit of the Month for February has so many possibilities to choose from.  This first card is called a "Z Fold" card and is one of my favorite to make because to me it seems like there is a "surprise" inside. 

From the kit I used the White Flared Flowers and when you open the card it looks like the one on the bottom is floating.  It is also accented with blue Gradient Gem Stickers to dot the I's and the exclamation point!  Love how this turned out!

This second card uses the Black Vintage Velvet Poppies and I added the White Vintage Pearl Brads for the center of the flower.  The sentiment is accented with Gradient Pearl Stickers and the Black Vintage Velvet Ric Rac ribbon sets it off perfectly.  The bottom section is embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder and then inked to bring out the embossed image.

The inside of this card is also accented with the Gradient Pearl Stickers.  I just love using the Gradient pearls and gems on my cards.

On this Birthday card I used the tiny stars from the Winter Seasonal Sparkles to accent the snowflakes.  I also used another of the White Flared Flowers included in the kit.  There is so much in these kits it is amazing.  I also used a Nestabilities die and inked it to bring out the embossed element of the die.  The oval was embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder and the snowflake is once again from Nestabilities.  The lace border was punched using a MS punch.

Love is in the air!

Love is in the air and everyone is thinking about what to get their special Valentine.  Who wouldn't love to receive this card from your special someone. Valentines is all about hearts and lace and the adorable scalloped heart with pastel roses from Creative Charms sets off this card.  It is accented with lace ribbon embellished with pink Gradient Pearl Stickers from Creative Charms.  The paper doily heart is embellished with a red Vintage Jewel also from Creative Charms.
