Friends Cards. You can never have enough in your Stash

I realized my stash of on hand cards was getting a little low and I am really enjoying this new tech. with the TH resit inks so I decided to try another couple of cards just playing around.  I am quite pleased with the way these turned out.
The stamps used are all Hero Arts  Paper is plain white and Bazil card stock. You can't really see the Bling in the blue and pink card but its there in the center of each flower.  Tech used to do the flowers is called wiggle and walk (found it on a Hero Arts Video) 

Hope you enjoy Take Care and thanks for looking.
Entered first card in the following challenge.  http://craftyourpassionchallenges.blogspot.com/

A Card that Barb Made

Barb brought this card over to show me on the week end,  it is lovely so I took a picture.  I was good this time and asked to post it on the blog here (usually I just do it)  Anyway Barb said I could so I was going to do it yesterday and didn't get one of those around to its.  SO here it is a day late but well worth the wait. 
I forgot to take a picture of the inside which is just as nice as the this. I pretty sure all materials are from CA if you want more details you will have to ask Barb.   Please let Barb know what you think.
I sure think it is lovely and I am sure her friend that is going to receive it later this month will as well.
Take Care all and Thanks for looking.

Afternoon's Fun

Well Barb and I got together and played a bit with the new machine.  Then watched a couple of Hero Arts Videos.   The following is what came of it.  Had a lot of fun and laugh's as usual.  Take Care
The Video  was called Layered Embossing.  There are four different layers of stamping on this card.  It was fun to do.  (I did one a little while ago on my own that did not turn out).  So between the two of us we got it to work.  Will be doing this again. 
This is how I finished the inside of the card.

Take Care all and Thanks Once again for looking.

Got Myself a New Toy

Well I went and bought a Big Shot with a pretty sweet bundle.  So last night I finally got around to playing with it.  Tried out the new Embossing folders that came with it.  Works really well with all that I tried.  So here are a couple of quick cards I made with the new folders.  Hope you all have a great day.  I am spending the afternoon in the craft room maybe I will be back later with what we made.
