Cards, cards and more cards

This weekend was the annual Rushmore Retreat put on by the ladies at Scrappin' Ladies outta Pierre. I got a lot accomplished but it never seams like I got enough accomplished. I got 5 layouts and 3 cards complete. I'll post the layouts later but here are the cards.

1. Margarita card made with some paper I found on clearance who knows how long ago, I bought like 8 sheets for some crazy reason. I used a stamp set from Made by Me/Skipping Stones Designs which I love (I think you can also buy these at Altered Art). I used some Glossy Accents on the glass and some stickles for the margarita salt. I used some green Bo-Bunny dot paper. On the inside I used a little bling as well.

2. I combined the new coffee set from Made by Me/Skipping Stone Designs with the drinks set on this card. I used some maroon dot paper I purchased at Altered Art and some versa mark ink for the drink rings. I also glossy accented my glass. It's very simple but I love how it turned out. The inside of the card says "Like a fine wine we get better with age...or rather, we feel better about our age with lots of wine! Cheers!"

3. I also made the card using the new coffee stamp set from Made by Me/Skipping Stone Designs. The paper is Flair Designs with some card stock in brown and white. I used watercolor pencils to color, added a little glossy accents so the coffee looked wet.
4. Last but not least, I made this card using some of Bo-bunny's red dot paper and the new stamp set called Party Girl from MTF stamps. I stickled her outfit and glossy accented her martini glass. The flower is by Prima and the red "ribbon" is Stampin' Up.

Thanks for lookin!
