*Faux Black Stainless Steel*

My friend Bonnie gifted me with some great Stampin' Up! patterned paper and told me about this wonderful technique where you can cover the paper with ink and then wipe off the excess.  I decided to try it with a black Memento ink pad and this is the result. The silver and gold on the paper resists the ink and the background went from bright white to this great gunmetal colour.

I cut it down and layered it on to a piece of silver paper and then on to a black card.  I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock and embossed it in silver, layered it on some silver paper and added it to the front of the card

*Another New Die*

This is another almost card front sized die that I got recently.  I have no idea who makes it.  I cut it out of white and then layered it on to a same sized piece that I sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create the background.  I layered it all on to a white cardfront with foam tape to create dimension.  And to finish it off, I painted the words with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

*Cover Plate Smile*

I got this new die and had to see how it cut... so I grabbed a piece of black cardstock and cut it out ...and proceeded to leave it on my desk for a few days.  I then got this awesome birthday patterned paper by Stampin' Up! and decided to try it behind the black panel.  I added it all on to a teal coloured card base and added the Smile die in white on the top of everything. 

It's not perfect, but I do love this cover plate die!

*Daisy Chain*

This card came from my head, not something I remember seeing on the internet... I'm really happy about that.

I started with cutting these two daisy chains with my big shot on white cardstock.  I used my Tim Holtz Distress Inks and blending tool to create the rainbow effects on them an adhered them to a small panel.  I cut the letters of THANKS using a die set from Memory Box from grey cardstock, and thanks to my new T-ruler I was able to get them adhered straight.  I then added some foam tape to the back of the panel and added it to the front of a white side fold card.

I love this card...

*Old Patterned Paper*

I bought this patterned paper back when I worked at the Scrapbook Pantry... and I held on to it because it is so freakin' beautiful.  I decided it was time to play with it...

I cut a panel of the shimmery patterned paper and added a thin border of orange to pull out the centres of the plumeria and then layered it on to a white card (I think I love white card bases).  I cut out the word "thanks" using my Silhouette and layered three together to get some dimension.  I added the die cut to the front of the card and painted it with the clear Wink of Stella pen.

And I realized that that was all this note card needed.
