Lazy Saturday!

Good afternoon blogging friends! Today has been such a LAZY day,,,,,,I've been playing with new dies all day and DH has been farming his little farm (farmville) all day,,,,,,,even the dog is lazy as sin today LOL.

BUT at least I have something to show you for it! Today I have TWO cards! (Insert silly dancing banana here!)

I think the first card is my favorite,,,,,,,love the colors of this Prima Madeline paper! to.die.for. Aren't the raspberries and blues so deep and elegant? happy sigh.

I used a ton of spellbinders layers on this card,,,,,,,from the bottom layer up, spellbinders fleur di lis in a hot raspberry mirror card and then TWO layers of Holly motifs, turned at different angles,,,,,,then a smaller motif from that same set,,,,,,,,and then a simple circles large was used to cut out the focal image from this amazing paper.

Frankly, I didn't want to add too much more to the card, all those layers look overdone if I add too much more,,,,so I stuck with a simple double bow in green.

here's a close up look at the layers! Close up you can see the holly of the holly motifs, but when it's all layered, it's much more hidden,,,,,,and I think it's so gorgeous, I just CAN NOT put it away only for Christmas cards!

My second card for the day is similar (can you tell I'm practicing with what layers look good with which diecuts???)

As you can see, this is a much "quieter" card,,,,,,,,light blues, whites and creams, with a bit of sepia for distinction between layers. I used Prima Botanicals on this one. Another gorgeous stack!

from the bottom up,,,,,,,,postage stamps with the center cut out with lacy squares, Nellie Snellen multi frame die round, lily (the two largest dies) , circles large, and finally eyelet pendants for the top piece.

I stamped several of the layers with a stampendous music note background stamp, inked them all in sepia, some lace, a triple butterfly bow and a sentiment, and she's done!

Here's a close up of the layers on this one,,,,,,,

I hope you're having a lovely LAZY holiday weekend! See you next year! And thanks for looking!
