4 Cards and no stamping!!

Today's post, my first for 2011, is all about using up some of my "stash" from last year!!! I also wanted to show how easy it is to create quick cards using tools other than stamps and ink. The cards below use all Stampin' Up products and were a lot of fun to create.
Finally had a chance to play with my 2 step bird punch for this one AND the new Square Lattice Embossing folder (from the Summer Mini catty) with the Big Shot to create the textured background. I love how it all came together.
I've always loved these DS papers. This is a simple and clean card which was super quick to create. I think I'll make a few sets of these up in different colours. The butterflies are made using the gorgeous Embosslits Die, Beautiful wings, with the Big Shot. This die is excellent value at $21.95 as it cuts out 5 different butterflies at once, with different sizes and patterns.

These two cards again use up some DS paper from my collection and can be used for lots of different occasions. The white flowers were in the old Pretties Kit. You can now purchase a pkt of 40 paper daisies by themselves for just $13.50. (see pg 140 of IB&C). The middle of the flowers was created using the Build a brad Kit. I've punched a circle from the DS papers to attach to each brad.

So there you have it. 4 quick cards made using various tools and bits and pieces. Hope you like them!
