amanda-2

Amanda sent this in awhile back. I just thought it was so pretty. The background layers are soft with that lovely pop of blue, her snowflake adds a wonderful wintery touch. And of course the stamp scene she built the card around, she colored so beautifully.

A little update about the design team – I will be sending out a message this week. I’m sorry for the delay, but the holidays have gotten the best of me and in between I’m trying to set up a new computer (the old one had just had it). SO I HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN! :)

I hope you all are having a lovely December.

amanda-pool-smAmanda certainly did it again! This card is too cute! The perfect background papers – big bright dots, and the other with the fishes. Her color choices are always so bright and cheery. To top it all off she put that wonderful sunshine in the top right corner with a little bit of bling in the form of yellow crystals for the warm sunny rays.

amanda-brave-smGet out your paper hats and flags because the 4th of July is here! In the good ol’ U S of A that means we’re celebrating with family and friends over bar-b-ques, fireworks and fun.

Amanda sent this card in. I love her background layers – the star paper, the patterned pattern and in the middle the blue with the red and white string. She topped the whole thing off with a grouping of buttons. The whole thing is so bright and cheery!

Wishing you all a happy and safe 4th of July.

amanda-fairy-smThis card would brighten anyone’s day! Little Pixie Poppy floating above the bright red mushroom, her wand twinkling and the flowers blooming. I love Amanda’s bright colors – makes me want to plant some flowers in the hopes that a pixie might come!

amanda-hello-smAmanda does it again! Isn’t this cute?! I love all the layered papers in the background and the bow with the pawprint tag is just wonderful. I also really love the black framing around everything, it really brings importance to each layer.

amanda-abundance-smThis card sent in by Amanda is all a-flutter with Springtime happiness! I love the way she colored the image in and the way she framed it with the green paper. Her embellishments are just fabulous – I never would think to add a bow that big but it’s just perfect!!

amanda-handbag-smAnother lovely card by Amanda. I think the doily type background she used to stamp the image on is just wonderful. It reminds me of tea time and cake (or chocolates). I love that she gave her a patterned dress and the little flower embellishments are so sweet.

amanda-unselfish-smAmanda really does a lovely job of using layers. With just one stamp she’s created a beautifully sweet card. She used black once again to frame all the layers. I love that she added the blue shading on the frame with the stamped image. I think it’s the little touches that people add to cards that make them so big!

amanda-snowtaster-smAnother lovely wintery card from Amanda. This time everyone’s tasting snowflakes!

I love the way she’s colored in the characters – all the detail and shading. I also love the subtle shading in the background – some nice big fluffy snow-filled clouds. I think she used her favorite powder again (Twinkling Clouds). She’s finished it all off with the perfect little embellishments.

amanda-sledding-smThe first card from one of the new design team members, Amanda Reed. (More will follow once I finish with all their orders. :) )

I love the hot pink and turquoise blue color combination – from her coloring to the cardstock she chose. And the embellishments bring everything together – the fresh fallen snow made using her favorite snow stuff (Twinkling Clouds from Sparkle N Sprinkle) and the sparkly chipboard snowflakes. Just wonderful.
