Day 2 of the Girlfriend Collection Release

Welcome to Day 2 of the Girlfriend Collection Release!

Yesterday we brought you amazing eye candy,
the backstory on this amazing collection, 
a chance to win it 
and the promise that we'd be back again today with more!

Let's get to it, shall we?
The Girl Fridays totally knocked my socks off with today's creations. 
Their use of color, technique and downright creative die usage is incredible!

Angie stamped Curtis Background and then trimmed it into strips to get a fun random panel for her Friend die cut. 

I'm loving the white embossed Curtis Background stamped on the Scallop Tag Fri-Dies. Then, Archana inlaid some of the flowers from Friendly Flowers for extra POW power.

 Jingle has a few Friendly Flowers stems used in a fun graphic way, and she trimmed the bottoms of one of the tags to get a cool border too!
 Joanna blew me away with the fabulous negative die cut pattern she created using Friendly Flowers.

 Julia got creative and turned one of the Tag Buddies upside down to create a tulip! 
The Sassy Smile stamp is a fabulous companion to this awesome new collection!

Kelly created a flower by using Friend as a stem, and cutting her cute petals using our Pinecone Fri-Die! 

This card makes me so happy seeing a big ol' Curtis Background drizzled up in color and white embossed. Love!

Ohmygawsh!
There are so many things I want to try now!

Somebody is going to win this collection valued at $84
and today is your second chance at being that lucky somebody!

My favorite card occasion is Christmas. Thanks for the chance to win.

Auntie Em said...

Those are all such beautiful and amazing cards. Tons of inspiration there. I enjoy making cards for all occasions. Christmas is always fun but new baby cards are so sweet, children's birthday let you play with so many imaginative ideas and colours. Sympathy cards can often be soothing and healing to create even. I guess what I am trying to say is that any card is special when it is something you make specifically for someone you care about.
Thank you for sharing! :)

Cheering and applauding this second round of DT showcases; so ingenious! Favourite card-making occasions (because I can't narrow down to one!): Christmas, just because and thinking of you. Anything and everything that will bring a bit of joy to someone's day. Your release is poised to do just that; in fact, it's already had that impact on me! Heading off to work, smiling!
