I was offered an opportunity to sell some of my cards at a retail shop in Plymouth. Karen at Tiny Boxes Boutique was kind enough to put them in her store for me! Here are a couple of examples of cards that are for sale.

The above card uses the Stampin' Up! set Bordering on Romance from the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog. Colors are Baja Breeze, Lucky Limeade, Blushing Bride and Regal Rose. I colored the flower images using ink and a blender pen on Glossy White cardstock and cut it out using the new Sizzix Label Collection Dies, also in the Mini Catalog. Added a few Basic Pearls to the center of the flowers and raised the label shaped panel with dimensionals.

This card was made using the Sale-A-Bration set Elementary Elegance. The stamp set is free with a $50 purchase. It's a very versatile set with sentiments including "Happy Birthday." I used Poppy Parade Cardstock and Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (another free option when you spend $50 purchase). Stamped the fancy border image in Soft Suede ink onto a Whisper White panel and colored in the outline with a Calypso Coral marker. Stamped with Poppy Parade ink the "Hello" sentiment and punched with Curly Label Punch, adhering it to the frame using a dimensional so it is raised up. Embossed the white background paper with the Stripes embossing folder. Cut out a butterfly using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits in Pool Party card stock and stuck 2 rhinestones on it. I am really liking this color combination right now! I am starting to see it everywhere, in decor, clothes, etc. Makes me think spring will be here soon!
