Yo-Yo embellies

Hi folks, it's almost Friday Yippee!!!  I thought I would pop in with a few cards to share with you.  I found a couple squares of fabrics the other day and I thought I would give a try at making some yo-yo's.

It's hard to see in this photo but the fabric has yellow in it and a grey script. 

This card does look pretty in person. For some reason this card did not photo very well.


Stamps:  Birthday Basics
Ink:  Versamark
Paper:  Lemon Tart, Smokey Shadow
Other:  White embossing powder, medium scallopped die, Scor Pal, Cuttlebug embossing folder, fabric, button from stash, yellow floss.
Finished size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

I pulled all the colors of the fabric together to create my next card.


Stamps:  Birthday Basics, Fancy Flourish, Vintage Label, Polka Dot Basics I
Ink:  Ripe Avocado, Orange Zest
Paper: Orange Zest, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado
Other:  Mat Stack I die, large scallopped die, Orange Zest twill ribbon, button, fabric

I loved how these yo-yo's turned out and they were very easy to make.  I'll be on the hunt for some more fabric that will coordinate with my PTI cardstock.
