Bliss card samples

How about some more card samples to drool over? These use the Sale-a-bration set "Bliss".

The first one is one that I made for a card swap. I CASEd the idea from a sample I saw somewhere, but I can't recall where. I love the elegance of this card. The colors are Basic Black and Very Vanilla and it has just a few Basic Pearls for accents. I also uses the new Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (2011 Occasions Mini Catalog pg. 28). I LOVE this embossing folder! I've seen it used on so many different cards and it adds such a wonderful touch. I think this card would make a beautiful wedding or anniversary card or you could change up the sentiment and it could be a sympathy or birthday card. So versatile!Carol Stofer created this second card. Isn't the butterfly gorgeous? I also love how she used the different punches behind it to accent it.
Here is another great card from Diane Kipp - Night of Navy and Very Vanilla combine to make another elegant card. I love the small strip of First Edition Designer Series Paper (2011 Occasions Mini Catalog pg. 25) that she used.
Did you consider that you could use this card for a Valentine's Day card? Joyce Feraco made this one. She used Cherry Cobbler ink, card stock, and 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon. I tell you, the more I see this ribbon and use it, the more I fall in love with it. It ties so nicely and looks so pretty. And did you notice that Joyce used that same Framed Tulips embossing folder? If you look closely at the mini tag, you will see a sweet little bird that comes in this set. The background paper is more of the First Edition DSP.
I love the bright colors on this next card! I know that I got it through our swap, but there's no name on the back so I can't give credit to the stamper who made it. (If you're the stamper, let me know so I can give you credit!) ADDED: I should have known - Carol Stofer made this card. I always love her creations! Thanks, Carol!
