I ended up making three cards using paper from My Little Shoebox. I bought the paper on a day that was grey and dreary and needed a little pick me up. Isn't it bright and cheerful? For all three cards, I had to use some of the My Little Shoebox cloud paper. I think it is my favorite.
On the first card, I made a little house scene using the patterned papers. I cut the green paper to make a grass fringe and added a saying by Impression Obsession. I don't know if you can tell from the picture that two of the flowers are popped up with foam tape.
For the second card, I cut out a branch and leaves freehand to serve as a perch for my bird. I then added a saying by Impression Obsession.
Finally, I made a shaped card using my Nestability Labels 8 dies. I cut out an extra cloud and stamped it with a saying by Memory Box. When I glued the butterflies onto the card, I attached just their bodies so that the wings would pop up off of the card.
Another close-up of the popped up elements. I think you can also see the rhinestone heads better.I thought it was fun to try something new. I don't know that I am ready to give up my stamps yet, but I liked how I ended up with three cards that coordinate with each other. I am always looking for gift ideas!
