smARTworks Tea Party : Shaped cards!!

Hello my friends, it is time for another smARTworks Tea Party, today I am hosting the Party and I had challenged you to create "Shape cards". Believe it or not I had a lot of ideas for this challenge, and I tried them all, sometimes not good results, but I kept the ones I like the most and I have 3 cards to show you !!!

Celebrate the moment: For this card I used the small stamp from Frames set and with the help of my stamp-a-ma-jig I started stamping using More Mustard Ink. The frame was stamped in Orange Cs using White Craft ink and heat embossed in White ep. I used Scallop scissors for the border of my card. I added little drops of Liquid Pearls and I attached some yummy ribbon.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Orange, More Mustard, White.
Stamps: Frames
Ink: More Mustard, White Craft.
Embellishments: Bobbin Ribbon, Liquid Pearls.
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Mini glue dots, SU Dimensionals, White embossing powder, Embossing gun, Provo Craft Scallop scissors

Welcome Little One: This card is very simple, I created a template on Windows Power Point and then traced it onto my CS. I stamped the sentiment from Combo Sentiment Set in Whisper White CS using Real Red Ink. The BG paper is perfect for this card, it has little glitter stars!! I added a little bow on top.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Tangerine Tango, Whisper White.
Paper: Just Dreamy by My Mind's Eye.
Stamps: Combo Sentiments.
Ink: Real Red.
Embellishments: Offray White ribbon.
Accessories: Mini glue dots, SU Dimensionals

Be Joyful: This card is really pretty. It took a while to make it, but at the end I was very happy with the results. For this card I used 2 smARTworks sets: Cookie Plate #1 and Buttoned Up. I stamped the leaves on Whisper White CS using Certainly Celery Ink, then using the same image I used Real Red and Orange Ink just to stamp the flower area, after that they were cut out, I also stamped the single flower from Buttoned Up set in Pretty in Pink Ink and cut them out. The sentiment was stamp in Read Red.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Whisper White, Red.
Paper: Just Dreamy by my Mind's Eye.
Stamps: Cookie Plate and Buttoned-Up.

I hope you like my creations and also you have some time to play along too. Remember, you don't need to use smARTworks stamps.
Now, head over to Susan (for Peggy and Sarah's too), Dina, Trish, Donelda and Donna and enjoy their creations too.
