Open House Samples Day Three

Hi Blogger Friends - Today, I have SEVERAL cards to share with you that were mostly made using new SU stamps and Colors. SO...........Let's get this party started.......
First up is this 6-3/4" x 3-1/2" sized card (fits the SU small open-ended envelope) and was created using the New In Colors Pool Party and Island Indigo ink and cardstock. I stamped three butterflies and then used my butterfly punch to bring these little butterflies to life. This card came together so quickly and packs a whole lot of fun in a FUN new size!
My next card is a card I CASE'd from the fabulously talented Margaret Moody. She posted this card a couple weeks ago on her blog and I knew immediately - this was going to be a card that I just had to duplicate. When I saw it I smiled and every time I see it now......I SMILE!
This card was put together with the SU Elegant Bouquet emobssing folder and a must have stamp set Word Play. Because this stamp set has so many different sayings - You have so many options to making this card fit perfectly to whatever your needs might be when you need a quick card.
Here's another card that uses a SU Elegant Line embossing folder .....the new 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon and the new Hostess stamp set "Posy Punch". I stamped the "hello" three times and then used dimensionals to raise up the punched out Hello onto a Island Indigo square piece of cardstock.
This fun little card was created using the SU Ornament Punch and 5-Petal flower punch (which was used to create the tail and fins for the fish). I've seen the fish posted on other blogs but when I saw the embossing folder used for background water - I just knew I would have to CASE it for an Open House card.  The Elegant Lines Embossing folder was turned on it's side and arranged the fish to appear as if they were swimming and the embossed lines take on the look of seaweed under the water.
This card was spotlighted on my friend Mary Fish's blog - She made this card on the recent Alaska incentive trip. It uses the new Just Add Cake DSP and some new In Color Ink and Cardstock. I also used the new Hostess "Posy Punch" stamp set for my flower and the center of my flower.....and then I dusted off my oldie but goodie paper crimper to create a fun little flag element to sit in the center of my card. I used the new BigZ XL Perfect Pennants die to create two pennants for the front of my card.....strung my pennants onto a small piece of Baker Twine and then added a couple layers of flowers to add another layer of FUN to the Twine. And my last card was made with the new Delicate Dollie stamp set and the new Lace Ribbon Border punch. This card was a SU new catalog card sample and I just changed up the greeting and added my spin on SU colors.  I just love the special birthday wish this card will bring to that someone special in your life.
Thanks for spending time with me today.......I appreciate you joining me and hope you can swing back tomorrow for me to share more cards with you. Keep Living Your Dream!
