Mixed Bunch - Off the Top Square Card

This is a cute little card from my June/July card buffet.  The base card stock is cut to 8.5" x 4.25".  When folded, it measures 4.25" square.  The flower hangs off the edge at the top; taking it to standard A2 size (kind of).    Although, it was a lot of cutting/prep for me, it was pretty straight forward to stamp and assemble.  I did warn to use the grid paper or envelope to measure and make sure it would fit in the envelope when finished.  Do the leaves look like something...?  They are the wings from the Bird Builder punch.

Oh, Hello

This card was fairly popular at my June/July card buffets.  That's good for me since it was much easier to prep than some of the others.  No small or odd shaped pieces and no embossing.  Still pretty, though.  And, as I have so often discovered, it's amazing how adding a few tiny rhinestones can dress up a card.

Stamp Set:  Oh, Hello
Card Stock:  primrose petals, whisper white

Everything Eleanor

This is another card from my June/July Card Buffet.  It took me a day or two to decide if I liked it enough to include it.  Well - I liked it personally, but I wasn't sure about my stamper friends.  Then I remembered that not everyone shares my taste.  It turned out to be pretty popular - no leftovers.  I think it was mainly liked or disliked for the color combination.

Doesn't that Daffodil Delight label shaped image look like a framelit shape?  It's not.  That thing is hand cut.  Punches were spoiling us.  Now framelits have taken over the spoiling.

Stamp the swirly image before embossing the card stock with the stripes folder.

Baby Stacker Toy Punch Art Card

Isn't this such a cute baby card?!  It was on my June/July Card Buffet.  

The rings for the stacker and the center pole/dowel thingy were made with the Word Window Punch.  To make the staggered sizes, we punched one, then slid one end of it back into the punch.
