Creative Juices are Flowing....

Even though I have been sick for the past week, that hasn't stopped my creative juices from flowing!  Check out these cute cards.  What do you think?
I created a cupcake using acrylic stamps and used clear embossing powder to make the icing glisten.
This 3-D flower was created from a 1/2" x 12" strip of paper.  After a little folding and bending, you'll have a wonderful flower to adorn any project.
The background of this card was created by using the "Stamp Kissing" technique.  I love this look, too cool!
I just scrunched up some leftover ribbon from a gift to glam this card up a bit.
This dahlia flower was created by using a circle and heart shaped punch.  The hearts were folded in half to create the dahlia's petals.

Card Crazy

Ok, so I think I am Card Crazy.  I have been making cards for the past few days, trying all kinds of new tricks and techniques.  I have so many ideas running through my head, I can barely sleep at night.  Check out my latest technique.....ruffles made from copy paper!  I used plain white copy paper and inked it up and then folded the stripes into box pleats and..... viola - instant ruffles.  I learned this technique from Tresa Black, there isn't a law that states you can't steal a technique from another there? :)
