Twenty-Eleven has been a great year for me as far as stamping. I have created some fun and amazing cards. Plus, I've been able to be consistent as to my stamping--almost daily. Ahhh. Today's post is a top 12 of this year. Here are my favorite cards and projects from 2011.
#12 Clare's Birthday Invite--One of my goals this year was to stamp and use what I stamped. For this birthday invite, I got to make my neice's first birthday special with everything bright and cheerful I could think of:
#11 Vintage Love Letter Card
This one I am proud of because I combined patterns I wouldn't normally use, plus I used the bird cage image from Nature's walk, not something found outdoors. But, I love the vintage feel:
#10 Hope and Strength
I love the use of chalkboard on this butterfly, and well, the whole card:
#9 I spy:
I thought I was so creative with this one! What a fun way to add some interaction to a birthday card!
#8 Best Wishes in Browns
I had so many new toys to play with on this one--and it worked!
#7 Quilted Elegance:
I am still in awe of this card--from the stitches I added with the Jumbo Wheel to the colors, I love it.
I snuck in three projects with one picture
in this one. I just loved using the In Stitches Suite from the 2011
Occasions Mini Catalog. Perfect for my mom:
I just love the colors on this one. I miss that robot set!
#3: Gingerbread House:
This was spinning in my head for so long, that I was glad to finally have it come out and meet it's amazing-ness. This is my kind of gingerbread--not too messy!
#2: Spice Cake Quilted Card
I was channeling pure Stampin' Up! joy on this one. You know, they designed this Designer Series paper just for me:)
#1 Princess Crown
This is still my favorite project from this year. It's an idea all my own and I really went out of comfort zone to make it--pink!
