Cherry Blossom Swap card

I joined a monthly swap this week and the theme was Mother's Day or Graduation. Well, I don't have the slightest idea what to do for a graduate so I went with the easiest. I used the Cherry Blossom die, the Texturz #4 plates, and All Holidays stamp set, Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, clear rhinestone brads, and the photo corner punch to get the ends of the banner look.

Baskets and Bloom Easter Card

I thought I would post my version of this basket card made with the Baskets and Bloom die. Do you remember this chocolate paper a couple of years ago? I wish that would have made it into the catalog longer. I hate using it up because once it's gone, well, I have no more. I also used a retired Easter set called Bunny Hugs, he is supposed to look like a chocolate bunny?

You Crack Me Up~

I know this isn't all Stampin'Up! persay, but to prove that the BigShot (used to cut this non SU! die) is so versitile that it does cut different brands of dies. I used A Good Egg stamp set and the NEW Scalloped Oval from the Ocasions Mini and some SAB ribbon to finish it up. Isn't he cute?
