.........More Cards to Share.....

Yes, I have more CUP cards to share with you.  I enjoy making these cards because of the variety (easel, teabag, etc.) and the designers are fantastic.  Have a look below to see a few of them and if you like what you see, just click on the word CUP or there is a thumbnail for CUP on my sidebar of this blog.  ENJOY!

This colourful CUP sheet was designed by Beverly McCabe.  It was sort of fun
to make, as I tried a new teabag fold (new to me) and was just a little different
from the norm.  The HB was cut on my Cricut and I added pink gems for
bling.  I chose the teal and pink for my backing/base of the final card.

This "beauty" was designed by Bodil Lundahl.  I love the colours
in this one.  The lovely lady is raised with foam pads as well
as the pretty roses.  I added a dark red pearl in each corner, added
a matching bow at the bottom & cut HB sentiment on my Cricut.

This card is lovely in the real.  The style of this card is called
"Fancy Picture 3D Card Kit", and was
designed by Anne-marie Vaux.  I printed this one out on photo paper
(Crafty Bob's of course) and the colours are absolutely vibrant.
There are the two scalloped flaps at the front with the birds
decoupaged and I added white pearls down the scalloped
edge.  The flaps & front (with saying) are all attached to the
main card which opens as normal.  I added a ribbon at the top.

This is a lovely card for many occasions, birthday, anniversary,
etc. and was designed by Nick Bowley.  I printed it out
twice so I could decoupage the roses, bow and bird.  I chose a
beige CS for the base and added pearls to match for bling.

Isn't this the cutest snowman?  I am in the process of making
12 of these for Christmas but a little smaller in size.  This cute snowman
was designed by none other than Crafty Bob, himself and features
Sassy Cheryl's 'Snowey And His Bluebird'.  He is
decoupaged with foam pads, I added some shiny snowflakes falling and
cut some evergreens on my Cuttlebug.  The snow beneath the
evergreens is sparkle snow, but difficult to see in the picture.

I made this St. Patrick's card for a dear friend in
Minnesota - and this craft sheet was designed by
Karen Adair on CUP.  The background paper I added
myself and mounted on a darker green base.  I added a bow
and green gems for embellies.  The shamrock is raised
with foam pads.

This cute little card I made for a niece that lives in
Detroit, Michigan.  The craft sheet for this card was
designed by Lorna Quinney.  I heard that my niece
liked the card very much.  A few of the items
are decoupaged and I added white pearls to give it
some bling.

This card I made for our daughter & son-in-law who had an
anniversary of 20 years.  I can't believe it!  I cut the scalloped
base on my Cricut and added 4 dark red pearls, one in
each corner.  This card has a corner pyramid buildup and gives
sort of a ripple effect.  The designer for the sheet to
make this card is Carol Clarke.  Do click on her name
and have a look at some of her other designs.
