Pinterest Inspired Cards

Any Pinterest lovers out there? Oh my...I probably spend way to much time pinning. I've found some great ideas and it's an awesome thing to sort through all the great ideas when I'm ready to make a card.

1) Butterfly Love
This one caught my attentenion because of the pretty butterflies that popped off the white on white layers. This was the first time I'd stamped first, then dry embossed the stamped image. It's a great effect. Thaks for the inspration:

2)Horizontal Pennants
I changed this one up with the colors, and the punched butterfly, but the inspration came from I love the way this turned out and I'll definitely make something similar again some day soon. Pretty simple and lots of fun with layering stamps and pennants.

3) Hello Cut Out
I've been wanting to try using the negative image on a card, and when I saw this one on Pinterest, I definitely had to give it a try. . I couldn't find the actual post for this card because the pin was tagged to the home page of the blog. I practiced with a scrap first to know where to set the size dial on my Cricut. I popped up the negative, and punched a layered flower for the embellishment. Fun!

4)Distressed Sun Burst
The inspiration for this came from the printed paper and the sunburst die cut. I didn't follow the technique linked to the Pinterest image. Instead I tore the hymnal page to be smaller than the card face, attached it to card stock, inked my embossing folder, then ran the hynmal page through the press in the inked folder. The scalloped circle punched from glitter paper, gave it a little girly touch. Thanks for the inspiration:
