The first time I saw this set I immediately thought of placing rhinestones in the centers of the snowflakes. I used Chocolate chip cardstock and ribbon, Kiwi Kiss CS, and Riding Hood Red CS. The paper at the top is from the new Holiday Treasures DSP (sooooo gorgeous!). I stamped a snowflake in the lower right corner of the Kiwi Kiss layer using Versamark ink. The tree and sentiment are stamped using Whisper White craft ink.

The paper, the chipboard, and most of the rub-ons are from "Laundry Line" by My Minds Eye. The papers were gorgeous and glittery--I just couldn't resist them! It was fun. Now I have to hang on to this card for a little bit until I'll feel ready to part with it!

I just got the Say it With Scallops stamp set today and immediately thought of using the flowers on this stamp as the "pop" of color on this card. This was a quick one, I really like the way it turned out, especially because I never would have used this color combo all on my own:
I embossed the basic gray layer in clear embossing powder with a stamp from Hero Arts. I popped the center square up on dimensionals, which you can't see in the photo. Then I added some "gems" from my local craft store. Voila!

I embossed the butterfly and flower images with clear embossing powder. I popped the butterfly wings up on dimensionals. The little flower in the center is from the same set. I used the "Sweet Celebrations" set to create the words around the flower (using white craft ink). I also paper peirced the brown and orange layers around the flower. The brown polka dot paper is from the brand new "Bella Rose" DSP. Thanks for the challenge Taylor! It was fun!

I painted the pot and stamped it with brown craft ink (I don't know what brand) and Whisper White Craft ink. The stamp set was one of the $1 sets from Michaels. I love the little baby face and teddy bear!

The dimensions I ended up with were 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. I used Night of Navy cardstock, Bella Rose DSP (the green with white dots), and white taffeta ribbon. I also used some Doodlebug rub-ons to put her name on the front and the card amount on the inside.
This week is her baby shower (and another for my neighbor, Stacey). I'm excited to do a cupcake bouquet for each of the showers. I've seen it done, but this will be my first try. I've painted and stamped a pot to use too, so I'll post on here afterwards so you can see how it turns out!

I did the butterflies and the central image with this same technique. Then I covered each with a coating of Crystal Effects to give them some shine. I added a little sticky rhinestone in the center. Do you like the scalloped edge? It was made using the brand new scalloped edge punch from the new catalog (it is fabulous and super quick!)
The card background is made using the brand new In Colors and Bella Rose DSP. Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point DSP: Bella Rose Ribbon: White taffeta
