Cards and more cards...

Sorry I've been away a few days again, my DIL had emergency surgery on Friday, so I've been a bit distracted.  She will be okay, just a bit of a detour that was not expected.  Please send your good thoughts!

I have a couple of cards to share this morning.  These are the two projects we made at Christy's SAB workshop last week.  She always holds my first Sale-abration workshop each year, so I wanted to do some fun cards, using many of our new products in the Occasions mini catalog.

This first card uses the new embossing folder called "Framed Tulips".  This is such a fun folder and I love how deep the embossing is.  I also used the folder on the inside layer as I show here in the inside peek.

 This next card uses our new seam binding, and our glass glitter.  These colors are Baja Breeze and Early Espresso cardstock, and the fun new stamp set "Eat Chocolate".  The second picture shows a close up of the seam binding and the glass glitter, although the picture does not do it justice!  We just laid down a strip of adhesive, then finger pleated the seam binding onto it.  After the seam binding was placed and the ends trimmed off, we ran a bead of our liquid Tombow glue along the top and bottom of the seam binding, then sprinkled on the Baja Breeze glass glitter.  So fun!

 This last card is one we did in my stamp clubs this month.  It uses the fun spinner hands and we made the card using a "gate-fold".  There are so many great stamp sets and new product in this Occasions mini.  I don't know which to use first!
