Swap cards with cool details!

All the cards I received are wonderful.  I have so many ideas to share with my customers!  Here are a few cards with over the top details.
This is a card by Deb Bourgin.
See the layer with the music notes on it?  You could use designer paper with notes or the Music Notes standard wheel (I think that's what this is.)  The cool detail is she crimped it before attaching it to the card.  It gives another layer of  texture to the card.

This is actually a Be My Valentine image.  By adding the Amour band over that, she gives another idea for using this stamp.  It can be used for an anniversary or wedding!

This is a card by Sandy Carlson.  
 This really wowed me.  See the different paper at the top and bottom?  That is the plus to 2 sided coordinated designer paper!  It is just folded up or down toward the cupcake to bring another pattern to the design.
Using the Eyelet Punch adds another element. 
So simple and easy, with great impact.

You can see the top edge folded over here.  There are dimensionals under the top edge, the layer the cupcake sits on and the cupcake image.

 Check this out!  This is a card by Heidi Baks.
She sewed the airplane trail on her card!  Now this is a more advanced technique.  Beginners could do a similar effect with just piercing holes for the plane trail.  The clouds are done with a scallop circle template and sponging to create the sky.  Just a wow kind of card.

So that's it for today.  I'll feature more cards tomorrow.

Happy Stamping!
