Pinterest inspired cards

OK it's official - I'm a Pinterest addict! At least I'm not alone, most of my Facebook friends are self professed addicts too. I've had a busy week at work but was able to spend most of the holiday last Monday in my craft room just creating and having fun. Here are a few of the cards I made using techniques I've been wanting to try and other inspirations. What do you think?

This card was totally inspired by a beauty I found on Pinterest. I used all Stampin' Up products of course. I stamped the doily image and sentiment with Versamark then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  

This card is a different color scheme and it's the notecard size.

This card is my take on a swap card I received at Convention. I used the images from Everything Eleanor - love the way it turned out!

This card is inspired by this Vera Bradley print "Out on a Limb" (I think). I used the Daydream Medallions set and one image from Lacy and Lovely to create the background paper. The colors are Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party.

This last card is using the Everything Eleanor set again (love it) and a very 'hot' stamping technique called Triple Time stamping. You can learn more about this technique at Dawn Olchefske's blog by clicking Here.  Dawn is super inspiring and talented and I'm so glad she shares that with everyone!
Please comment - I'd love to hear from you!

    I adore the card based on "out on a limb". That print is my diaper bag. The card is beautiful!
