And here are the cards I made for my Studio Calico July Guest Designer projects:
A LITTLE BIRDIE TOLD ME CARD

How to: Punch 1" squares from patterned papers and trim them in half to make triangles. Adhere the triangles across a white card in a quilt-inspired pattern then sew diagonally across each row. Stamp a sentiment across the bottom. Accent the triangles with a few sequins and wooden veneer asterisks.

HELLO FRIEND CARD

How to: Drop a rainbow of watercolors across the top of a white watercolor paper card base and let the paint run and drip down. Let the paint dry. Stamp a "hello" speech bubbles image in black ink across the center. Stamp "friend" inside the empty speech bubble. Embellish the card with matching colored sequins.

Stamp "love" in black on a tag with a notched bottom end, place a pink button over the "o" and adhere the tag over the ribbon. Tie more of the ribbon into a bow and place it above the sentiment.
