Music Notes - Stampin' Up Wheel

Recently I was commissioned to create some Thank you and Birthday cards for my Choir Conductor... Of course with a Music theme... I thought the Music Notes wheel would be PERFECT... Because the wheels are just so versatile... you can create your own backgrounds... you can punch out shapes and you can create almost anything you want to....

These first 4 are from the recent Stamp n Stack class I ran... (There is another one happening this Saturday evening if you would like to come.. Just let me know ASAP... as there are only a few places left.......) and of course you can substitute any of your Stampin Wheels to recreate this one.. It's nice and simple with just a hint of colour... and a length of ribbon...

This design was inspired by a picture I found on the internet... How beautiful are these double butterfly in DSP Stamped Card Stock and plain coloured card stock all mixed and mingled... ??? They are again simple in design.. although some what time consuming if you are mass producing them as you do have to run the little butterflies through the Big Shot with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die for each and every butterfly cut out... as you can only cut one layer of card or DSP at a time...
(Perhaps I may need to purchase another Embosslit??? Hummmmm... that is food for thought... or maybe if I chose to do this design again I can borrow some other Paper ANNGELS Embosslits too!!!)

And how cool are these Piano cards below??? Again inspired from a card I saw on the net.. as I have said many a time.. Google is my friend!!! All  I used here was the Word Window Punch and went to town punching my little heart out.. then I used our FANTASTIC new Big Shot Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheets to stick all the white keys onto a line of black card stock and then used some dimentionals on the black Window Punches to give them some depth.... and Whalah.. you have a Pinao/Keyboard looking card...

I loved the design of the Butterfly cards so much that I changed it up just a little and made this one below for KNEG Card Craft Day this week... It's great to be able to cut out all the Butterflies with the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Steal Rule Die...  and the Big Shot machine... Because you can cut at least 5 layers together.. I think I may have even pushed it to 8 layers... but only of the white card stock because it is a little thinner.. and perhaps I may have done 10 layers of the DSP... So mass producing 20 sets of these butterflies does not prove to be too much of a problem... and it is just a beautiful as the double butterflies....When you add a little Bling... heheh

Hope these cards inspire you and you can enjoy making some BEAUTIFUL cards too....
