And Now... The Rest of the Cards

Time is quickly running out - get your retiring items before they're gone!
From Millan.Net

I have the rest of the cards from the Upscale Swap Group to share today.  Hope you enjoy!
 Carla Schultz - Secret Garden and Fabulous Phrases
 The technique she used is called "Out of the Box Inlaid Embossing".
From Millan.Net
 Deb Currier - Thoughts and Prayers
The use of the Natural Composition Specialty Paper gives this card such an elegant look with minimal effort!
 From Millan.Net
 Diane Kipp - Stippled Blossoms and Just Because
 The Fan Fair DSP "lace" was the inspiration for the other scallops at the bottom of the card.
 From Millan.Net
 Jayne Stenstrom - Stippled Blossoms and Teeny Tiny Wishes
This was my "fussy cutting" card for the group.  I find cutting out images like this (known as fussy cutting) relaxing.  I was working on them at a Creative Escape weekend and had many people comment on the amount of cutting I was doing.  Hey, what can I say?  Call me nuts, but I like to do it!
 From Millan.Net
 Yvette DuBord - Postage Due and Travel Journal wheel
I can't remember if Yvette said she stamped and embossed with white first and then stamped with the dye ink on top of that or vice versa, but it looks cool whatever way she did it!
 From Millan.Net
 Lisa Horton - Perfectly Penned (on inside), plus Beautiful Butterflies and Lattice Bigz Dies

Here is the card opened.

Which one do you like best?  You have lots of examples and inspiration - so go forth and stamp!

Until next time...
