YouTube Inspirations

Who doesn't love YouTube!  If it wasn't for the site I don't think I would know how to do much of anything at all! Here are some of the cards I just had to make myself after playing online.

True Love Flower
Such an easy flower card.  All you need is paper, a corner punch and a center embellishment..love it.  I really loved doing the brad though.  It was orange with polka dots but I inked it then embossed it with some glittered embossing powder.  The designer paper and cardstock were from my scrap pile and the ribbon came out of a dollar bin at JoAnn's. ( This one is also for the OWH Stash Challenge )

Blessing Pinwheel
This one was super fun! Anything that involves breaking out my Cuddle Bug makes me smile!! (Thanks again for the best birthday present ever mom!)  The paper once again came out of my scraps and then there's a random brad from my stash.  Not quite sure which stamp set this stamp came from but if you are interested I'll dig through and let you know!

Power Behind Us
Here she is, the card that has been a headache for me for the past month! Looks simple enough right? Wrong!  This has to have been the most stubborn ribbon I've dealt with.  I went through three adhesives to get it to stick and it still wouldn't! So then came the brads.  Headache over!  This was also my first attempt with paper piercing.  I like it...you're going to see it a lot more now.
