Don't you love that swirly paper to go with the vine-y plant?? Love all the details of that card! The vellum one is really speaking to me, though, it's my fave, but they are all great!

Beth said...

I love them all but I really like the look with the vellum - i may have to dig out my vellum!

All so unique and different. Love all the details -- great cards.

Great cards! I don't sew, but love the look of it on your card. The vine card is my favorite (if I had to pick one!)

Hi Karen, really pretty cards. I think my fave is the growing vine using the blue and orange tones. Can't wait to begin when I get my set.

Tricia T said...

The first one is my favorite! I can't wait to pick up the paper pack and the blue lagoon paper and ink. (That's as far as my budget goes, lol!) This is such a fun kit!!

Sue D said...

Great cards. My favorite is the first one.

Great cards. I really like the solid flower stamped in the new colors. They are so cheery. I also really like how you extended the vine in the first card. Great idea.

Kelley H. said...

The heart background paper is wonderful. Did you make it or is it in the paper pad?

Sharon said...

Wonderful cards as always Karen. It is funny I never use my stencils to ink through I always seem to want to add embossing paste but it is so nice with just the ink

Beverly Perdue said...

I agree the colors and the patterned paper are great! Love the bright colors you used. I love the bicycle card with the distressing and the raffia.

The lipstick card is brilliant!! I wouldn't have thought about combining the hearts and roses, but it worked amazingly!!

Color has that effect on me! Love the one with the plant and especially the red one - WOW!

Casie Williams said...

I love how you "distressed" the stamped card -- looks like an old photo. Nice!

Laraine R said...

Great cards!

Joni said...

I love tags on cards so the first one was my favorite, Karen. And what a really top-notch job on the masking for the vine on the right side of the paper...that couldn't have been easy! A wow card, to be sure. Thanks for the inspiration. Oh, the vellum sewn n was also a nice toouch in the second card, too.
