For my first card, inspired by Kelly's creation, I really went out of my comfort zone, using not only stamps, inks and die cuts (normal), but also patterned paper, 4 different washi tapes (gasp) AND several rub ons (butterfly, BeYouTiful, flowers and sequins, all from the same Chic Tags set by Cloud 9) that I found hiding in a box. The You sentiment (Simon Says Stamp) was cut out a few times from BasicGrey pp and white cardstock and layered to create a more sturdy embellishment. The scallopped rectangle was cut using a die by SugarPea (part of the set that was included in the SOA Young at Heart collection). Creating this card was hard work, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm very happy with how it turned out.

My second card uses the same stamps and patterned paper, but is more within my comfort zone.
After stamping the houses and leaf (used as a tree here) in various inks, I die cut the Hello sentiment by W&W from my panel and mounted it on top of two more die cuts cut from white card stock and then inlaid it in my panel. A few die cut hearts (SSS), partly coloured by swiping my inkpad over them, a sentiment strip (Happy Every Day by SSS) and a few Studio Calico sequins finish off my card.
