Bohemian DayI love Bohemian Designer Series Paper!  I love the Boho Chic Textured Impressions embossing folder! The Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits seem to be made to match!  Add a phrase from Fabulous Four and you have a fabulous Bohemian card!

I CASE’d this card pretty closely from a card I saw on Pinterest. It was made by Narelle Fasulo and can be found here.

Four Feathers 2-21-15This card can be used for many occasions.  I absolutely love the way the delicate feathers came out using Shelli Gardner’s technique with the veins.  I changed it up a bit with stamping the images on filter paper.  Love it!!!  I repeated a scallop motif with the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper that you can get FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration.

So Grateful There's You 7-12-14I think Traveler, World Map, and Chalk Talk must have been meant to go together.  And I think the colors go great too!  I used Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso.

I designed this card before Stamp Out Fussy Cutting was born.  I used gold embossing powder to bring out the globe, but I think the cut-out makes it pop much better.  And you don’t have to stick with Whisper White.  You could request a cut out from a different color or just sponge the cut-out to any color you want.


20140703_233234I sponged the train cut-out with Crumb Cake and it looks great!
