Two Cards

Hello friends.  Thank you all for your support for the great blog hop hosted by Britta!  That was my first time participating in a hop and it was great!!  I'm happy so many of you liked my card and video.  Your comments, subscriptions, and following means A LoT!  THanK YoU!!  =)
On with the cards.  This card is a make and take I had at my home a few weeks ago.  It is a simple card because the Big Shot does all the work!  Love that.  Here's the card.
Elegant huh?  I love that embossing on the gray cardstock.  That embossing folder is called Elegant Lines from Stampin' Up!  It works with the Cuttlebug too, not just the Big Shot.  Then the flowers is the Floral Fusion Sizzlit which is exclusive - which means you can only get it from Stampin' Up.  
From that flower die you get all 3 different sized flowers.  I just lightly sponged the edges of each with rose red ink to add depth and emphasize the layers.  I topped off the flower with an itty bitty button and bakers twine.  Then I just stamped my sentiment on a scrap piece of white cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Thank You Kindly stamp set - also from Stampin' Up.  Just one stamp this card is done - thanks to the Big Shot!  My friends really liked this card, both how simple it was to make but also how elegant it looks.

The second card is one I made for my daughter.  Here it is.
I used one my new stamps set I got from Eclectic Paperie.  This is a Hero Arts set called Sweet Wonderful You.  I paper pieced the outfit.  I used the coordinating flower stamp to lightly stamp the background where the girl is, and also on the designer paper strip.  I used my colored pencils to color the girls hair and skin.  I used more of my scraps for the strip going down the side.  The sentiment is from the same set and the hearts are too!  There are 2 other girls and 2 more sentiments on this stamp set...it is a great set to have.  To finish off the card I added crystal effects to her hair clips and to the hearts.  My daughter really liked this card and I had fun making it.  Happy stamping.
