Cards With "I Am"

Hello! Today I'm up at the 
SIMPLE STORIES BLOG
with a set of cards using the beautiful new "I Am" Collection.
  The collection is filled with all sorts of sweet sentiments that are perfect
 for cards, or if you prefer, use the pretty papers and embellishments to
 create an assortment of plain note cards!

For the first card I used a 3" and 4" circle die to cut the 6X6 patterned papers. 
The circles were layered together with foam adhesive and black pom pom trim was
 adhered to the back of the larger circle and then attached to the card front. 

The typewriter sticker was embellished with one of the cute clips, a label sticker and
 butterfly sticker.  And I love that the new adhesive brads!  A small strip of washi tape
 was applied to a scrap piece of paper and then added to the bottom.

The focus of this next card was the adorable chipboard frame!
The inset of the frame was filled with one of the smaller journal cards and then layered 
onto a black mat. 

In keeping with the floral pattern on the frame, matching patterned paper 
(for the card base) and stickers were used.  The gold foil chipboard pieces add
 just the right amount of glitz and shine.

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
