These were fun little tea holders that I made for a team meeting.  I have never done shading straight onto the patterned paper before, but I really like how they turned out!

27 Dresses(eventually!)

These cards were extremely fun, and beautiful!  Please don't ask me for the template....I looked everywhere, and every link I found had been removed--maybe from a copyright issue.  Anyway, I just free hand drew the bodice, and then just played with the skirt part on computer paper(bottom of the skirt part is rounded).  Once I got it to be doable, I just marked my fold lines on the template. I then traced onto the back of some patterned paper, and cut.  I then used my Simply Scoring tool to just score on top of the template stacked on top of the patterned paper.  I had to cut another template after making a few of these!  LOVE them!

Elegant Place Cards

These were place cards that I made for a girlfriend's birthday brunch.  I made them with MDS(My Digital Studio)--testing the placement of the name with the images to make sure the frame embossing die would be right.  I started with the largest name, then once I test printed, I could just copy and paste the whole thing across the page(4/page).  I then cut, folded, embossed, then sponge inked the edges.  And for the final touch, the teeniest pearls from our Basic Pearl accents.

I did the same thing for these food labels(8/page since I was mounting them).  I then added butterflies from the Beautiful Wings embosslit die.

This was a really stunning card to make...You could make this for so many occasions, really.  It uses the Labels Collection Framelits Dies, and embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper folder.  It was then lightly brayered with Soft Suede ink(as well as all of the edges--sponged), then adhered with Dimensionals, and a delicate touch of pearls to complete it.  I will definitely be making more of these!
