New Cards to Share!

 Hello!   Long time no stamp!   Well, I did stamp but had trouble finishing the cards, which is unlike me..I usually won't get up until one is done.   This card was inspired by Julie's challenge to use vellum...I hope you can see my vellum butterflies...they went through the cuttlebug in the swiss dots embossing folder, then I added the sentiment on a vellum strip.   It was the first time I tried sponging a sunset...need a little more practice blending I think.   The stamps are SU..Just Believe and Wonderful Words.   Lucky I could find my vellum...lol...great challenge, Julie!   :)
   Here are the other vellum cards:

And, another card!  We had a nice cool weekend and it really felt like fall (of course, short lived), so I pulled out the Fall Foliage set from Gina K Designs and cardstock, DP, ribbon and brads from the StampTV kit Sun Kissed Autumn and put this together.  I love using the swirl embossing folder for fall cards....like wind blowing leaves.   OK, here's a tip...the thumping technique is best left to markers...thumping with ink pads leaves one pad a mess.  :p    

Thanks for looking!
