2s4y Design Team Call - 3 cards:)

 Hi all- as I mentioned in the last post, I'm on my way out of town-wahooo! But I really wanted to give a final shot at this design team call for 2s4y. They are picking TWO designers this week!!!  I made 3 different cards, all using this week's sketch & decided to consolidate them into one post, hope that's cool:)

Snowflake Card- (all supplies SU! unless noted)
The brown background is dry embossed with the Cuttlebug folder & sprayed with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz. I stamped the large circular snowflake stamp (hero arts) in Baja Breeze ink on Vanilla cardstock. I cut it out with the circle cutter & then mounted it on a larger Marina Mist circle and a scallop die cut (nestabilities) I cut 2 large snowflakes out on my Cricut (Winter Woodland cartridge) and I glittered the smaller one with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I put a vintage brad through the center of the whole circular embellishment.
I made a pseudo "bow" from brown striped ribbon (SU!) and layered my fancy circle on top. For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment (Penny Black stamp) on Vanilla & cut the end to give it a banner look. I then used 2 dimensionals to lay it down so it had movement.

Butterfly card- (all supplies SU! unless noted)
For this card I started with a card base of Elegant Eggplant, then layered on a piece of Rich Razzleberry, then I brayered Rich Razzleberry, Real Red, Melon Mambo, and Rose Red onto a piece of Presto Patterns cardstock. I sprayed Vanilla Smooch Spritz onto the piece to give it some shine. I inked up my stamp with multiple markers, and then punched it out with a 1 3/4" circle punch. I used the jumbo scallop circle punch to punch out a piece of my patterned paper (Basic Grey) and I ruffled around it with some fuschia ribbon from my stash. Then I made a bold stripe out of some Rose Red cardstock and another piece of the Basic Grey paper. Finally I punched two butterflies, one from Rich Razzleberry cardstock and one from Night& Day patterned acetate & I layered them. then I added 2 rhinestones to the butterfly body and 3 to the bottom of the card.  I added the butterly to the card to make it look like it was fluttering away.

Monster card- This was a simple card & super fun! I used Basic Black, Real Red and Bashful Blue cardstock (SU!) I stamped the sentiment from MFT "Little Loveosaurus" then I dry embossed the blue piece in the Cuttlebug. I made the bold stripe from October afternoon paper & sticker strip. Then I made the monster panel with a large October Afternoon sticker & a Sassafrass monster sticker.
Well that is it for me! I will be out of town, so I will answer comments when I get back. When i get back late next week I will try to get a challenge or 2 in & I'll show you pictures of my vacation! Thanks to my stamping buddy Mindy for keeping an eye on my place! Have a great week:) -Noelle

I love all these cards! The antique SU brads are just gorgeous! I'm already on my 2nd the pleated ribbon medallion thingy on the butterfly card and the monster card is simple and cute:) Thanks for your kind comments on my blog earlier:) It's nice to know that someone else out there is going through the same things occasionally!! Take care, Jenny
