A Few of my Favorite Things

here are 3 cards that I made at my stamp-a-stack last week. This was probably the most difficult technique that we used--heat embossing. I actually first made this card by mistake, which I think I posted the earlier version made on Pretty in Pink cardstock. These cards were made on Lovely Lilac, Certainly Celery, and Regal Rose. I wheeled the Doodles jumbo wheel using a versamark self-inked cartridge, and embossed with white powder. I love how it looks elegant and lacy. Then I stamped a butterfly from Garden Whimsy in Lavender Lace and Regal Rose, cut it out, added glue and glitter and used tiny 3-D pops to adhere. I used Flowers for You DP for accent. For the Sentiment, I used a scrap strip to stamp the saying--from Garden Whimsy and So Many Sayings (hostess) in black ink. Then I snipped with scissors for length and used the ticket punch on the corners. I like how that turned out. By the way, one of my guests wants to hand stamp invitations to her daughter's 4th birthday in January, and wants me to help her--to do a mini stamp-a-stack for her using my supplies, but for her to make them and pay for them--and is thinking of doing a card similar to these. I think it's a great idea, and am contemplating the same idea for Hannah's 3rd birthday coming in February. I think it can look like princess/fairy cute girly stuff. Any comments?
