More of Marlene's Marvelous Cards

Happy Monday to you!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  We had a great weekend -- mostly spent outdoors at my boys' various baseball events!  

I have a treat for you today!  I have some cards from my super-talented friend Marlene Caravello to share with you!!!

This first one uses the wonderful Swallowtail and Oh, Hello stamp sets along with the Cloudy Day embossing folder, all from the Spring Catalog:

I love how Marlene does a beautiful job of finishing her cards inside and out!!!

Next up is this lovely card, featuring the Hexagon Embossing Folder, Dress Up Framelits, and More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Spring Mini, as well as the Occasions Alphabet Set from the 2012-2013 Catalog:


The inside is stamped with a Flourish from Everything Eleanor, and "Happy Birthday" from Bring on the Cake:

Here's a great masculine birthday card, which with a change of sentiment stamps, would also make a fabulous Father's Day card:

The bow tie and shoe stamps are from the Dapper Dad stamp set in the Spring Catalog.

And, last but not least, is this gorgeous card, combining the Oh, Hello and Secret Garden stamp sets, along with the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper from the Spring Catalog:

To create the vase, Marlene used gold embossing powder to emboss the oval stamp from the Oh, Hello Stamp set on a piece of Early Espresso card stock, and die cut that with the coordinating oval framelits.  That along with the die (and fussy) cut Secret Garden flower and stem, adds such great texture and dimension to the card!

These are all so marvelous!!  I feel so blessed to have received them and to get to share them with you!

Thanks for stopping by!
