Some Scrapalicious cards to start the weekend!!

Can you tell who's ready for Spring?!?!!?
(made from WorldWin DoubleMates! I just love this stuff. It's got two colors, one on each side of the paper. This particular paper is called Morning Mist. And it has a white on one side and black on the reverse side. That's why the ripped part looks so cool!!!!!)

(FYI: Did you know that if you wet the DoubleMates paper, you can
actually peel the two colored sheets apart?!?!)

I was obviously in a girly mood, because when I looked at the Stampin' UP! tab punch, I realized that it really looked like a purse. (and I've looked at this punch a jillion times before and never noticed that) Anyway, I decided to make a purse and cut the strap from matching cardstock. This card is made from WorldWin Cascata. This paper is like cashmere and I love it!! This purple is so rich and divine!!!!!

Yep, definately in a girly mood! My stepmom gave me this Stampin' Up! striped pattern paper. So, I started with it and started pulling colors from it! She had the EK Success scallop punch, so I decided to try to punch my own scalloped papers. Not bad for a first try!!! I love how these Prima's coordinated perfectly with the paper. And the rub-on is TLC, generously given to my by my girl, Tammy! And again, I used WorldWin Cascata! If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend you find some!!!
It's so worth it!!!!!

And after all that girly goodness, this mother of 3 boys decided to do a card that was primary colors and could be given to one of my boys! I'd been hoarding these bling stars and decide to pull them out. Some WorldWin Ruche and DoubleMates made this card perfect!!! I stamped the background and sentiment with SU stamps/ink.
Hope you enjoy these ideas and they inspire you to make something fun this weekend!
