Cards For Friends....

Today I want to share 2 "Friend" cards that I made a few weeks ago...

The First is one I had a ton of fun with. I found myself experimenting with those awesome Martha Stewart Corner Punches on different shaped pieces of cardstock and came up with so many ideas..... this oval punched panel was one:
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Best Yet (Hostess Set)
Paper: Pink/White CS
Ink: Marvy Matchables
Accessories: Scor-Pal, Martha Stewart Punches, Silver Brads, Stickles Glitter, Satin Ribbon, Cuttlebug Folders, Rhinestones, Creative Memories Corner Rounder
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Scoring


For my second card, I was completely inspired by Becca Feeken. I fell in love with her gorgeous "Everlasting Light" ODBD card found HERE. I really loved the entire layout & look. Also admired how she created her own matching large Brad-Top with the Imaginisce I-Top Maker..... {She officially motivated me to use my I-Top Maker for the first time}. :) Thanks for the inspiration Becca! Attempting to CASE Becca is really tough, but I gave it my best shot adding my own twist to my Birthday Wishes Card here:
Stamps: Birthday (unknown brand)
Paper: Pink, Black CS & Pre-designed silk-thin black & silver checkered Paper Roll (unknown, found this roll at Thrift Store)
Ink: Black Memento
Accessories: Pearls, Ribbon, Imaginisce I-Top, Spellbinders, Ek Success Edge Punch


Thanks for Looking & Happy Creating!
