I have 3 more great sets to share with you today.  I tried to get a little outside my comfort zone with some of these.  I used a hat pin for the first time……not sure if I did it right, but I like how it looks!  I’ve never done a pennant/banner card – and I gave it a whirl!  I wish I had the Spellbinders dies to coordinate with Nina and Tami’s sets – but they will be in stock soon!

First up I have a card with Perfect Pennants by Tami Mayberry.  This was not an easy one for me!  I love seeing the adorable cards people make with pennants……but apparently that’s not my style or something!  I like the dots I used over the letters – and I think it turned out cute!  It’s good to do something a little out of box for a change though!

Next up I have my CAS card for the day!  This is kind of a stand-by layout for me, but it works so well!  I paired Cute As A Bug by Rupa Shevda with some October Afternoon papers.  I only colored in a bit of the image using Copic markers.  Then I added a bit of glitter to finish it off!  I think I’ll be sending this to Matthew some day soon!

My last card for today uses Lovely Labels 3 by Nina Brackett.  I don’t have the Spellbinders dies that these were designed to go with, so I just trimmed it by hand.  Not fun, but it can be done!  I paired it with some Amy Butler papers, pearls, flowers, and a hat pin!  I don’t know that I used the pin correctly, but it looks nice.  And how the heck do you attach those suckers?  I dimensionals and big glue dots……how do you do yours?

Be sure to stop by and see the rest of the samples from the ever fabulous Design Team!  And as always – Gina will have lots of free stamps to share this week, so watch her blog for all the information on how you can win!
