I got out my spellbinders Rose creations die set and made some roses, I wanted to see the difference between using card stock and paper, the ones on this first card I made with the card and the yellow ones were made with paper, I'm still not certain which ones I prefer so will probably continue using both when making them, most likely depending I on what colours I have on hand when needing to make them.
The colour on these cards looks like a tan colour but is actually a dark/dirty dusky pink.
I also used the Spellbinder Foliage die for the leaves and I made these by sponging Peeled Paint Distress Ink ink onto a piece of white card stock cutting our the leaves and then sponging more of the Peeled Paint round the edges of the leaves.
Also used on the above card was the Spellbinders Basic lattice Die.
The Joanna Sheen Signature Die Flourish Corner.
The Joy Crafts label 2 Tag tie.
and the butterfly is from the Stamp It siset034 stamp set.
On the card below I also used one of the dies from the Spellbinders Floral Ovals Die set.
I cut apertures in the front of the cards and placed the Basic lattice in behind adding another layer of the card stock on dimentionals on the inside behind the lattice.

Do you have a box or drawer full of all those little pieces of design paper that you can't bare to through away.
I have and decided to use some of them by making striped backgrounds for my cards, I cover a piece of card stock slightly bigger than I need for my card with a piece of Jac paper (double sided sticky sheet) or you can just stick your strips on with whatever method you use for adhering your layers, then I just start sticking on my strips when finished I trim the piece to whatever size I need for my card. For my card below I used ½ inch strips but you could use any size even odd sized strips and you don't have to lay them straight like I have, lay them on an angle or whatever else you can come up with.
Herr's the list of dies I used for my card .......
The bow I think is Memory Box Perfect Bow
and the sentiment stamps is from the Stamp-it set siste046

My godson Callam is having a 21 st Birthday on the 5th of this month, which is pretty amazing considering the doctors said he wouldn't see his 15th birthday, but with the determination of his mother Pam he graduated from high school and now has a job as well even though he is confined to a wheel chair.
He's having a party theme of Black and white with bling, so my bookatrix card for him is meant to represent a black jacket, white shirt and bow tie.
Here it is in it's box.

I managed to make a card without causing myself too much pain on my surgical hand.
It's amazing what we can accomplish with determination.
I coloured the Leane Creatief Landscape Church stamp with copics, this was quite easy one handed.
And I cut the dies using my elbow to hold down my cuttlebug while cutting.
The background is the Cratfs Too 5"x7" lattice embossing folder.
This card I made in the morning before going in for the surgery and its for my brother in laws birthday at the end of this month.
I used a new stencil for the background thecraftersworkshop 6x6 mini tile texture
The trees are from a Leane Creatief die set deer and trees,
The grass is a Fiskars border punch and the leaves the Martha Stewart punch Frond.
The owl digital stamp is from Just inked.
