I just wanted to post the cards I sent to Chameleon 3388, since she does not post any pictures.
I made a Triple Flip Anniversary Card for her, and a Window Winter-card that stands up. I included some of the Embellishments I used, as well as a few others. Hope she likes what I sent her.

Great cards and embellishments. I really like the tripple flip card. It is interesting and I want to see if I can figure out how to make it.
The window card is very cute. I am looking forward to see Chameleon 3388's cards.

Well I am glad you liked my Cards. I would stay away from the Triple Flip Card. That is probably the most expensive Card I have ever made. You need four different sets of dies, that each cost $25 And as I found out after I purchased the dies, they only work in the larger Die-Cut machines like the "Cut'n'boss", so I had to buy that machine too. Only used it once to make the card shown above. So all together it cost me $180 for that card. And I was not to happy with the outcome. It looked so good on You Tube, but doesn't work that well when you make it. The Triple Flip Die is supposed to emboss, so you know where to place the borders, but doesn't do so. So you have to guess where to place the different frames. I had to improvise and cut a Border around, so it looked kind of even. All said and done, a big waste of money.
Now that I have my new Scan& Cut 2 hooked up, I have to find out how it works. Will let you know how I like it in a few days.
Happy New Year to All. My old and new New Years Resolution is still not to buy anything. Hope to keep it, unless some of my friends post a new project or tool again.

Well for all your trouble & cost that triple card is a beauty and quite unique. The window card is beautiful too. Lots of work went in to them, I can see that. :)

Both cards are beautiful. We will try to only make cheap cards Elfie. That way if you want to make it, it won't cost you a lot of money. (Joking) Don't give up making the first card. The embellishments are beautiful.

Well, what I consider a waste of money is getting two Die-Sets that only cut squares. Something I can cut easy without a die, and the main die for the Triple Flip only has one die, and you can only cut the Base for the Flip card. But we all learn. Will use it for a variety of cards. Just stay tune and I will post them. AND I will send the Base as an Embellishment, so you all can try it, before you buy it.

Beautiful cards and I especially liked the first card, the color is just lovely. But then I really liked the window card and all the embellishments are really nice and useful. Elfie always makes lovely cards.

Lovely, pretty, gorgeous, fantastic...on and on and on as to how many ways you can describe these cards! Both are very pretty, but the window card is my favorite. Sorry...I know the other one was $180, but, I like the window one better! :) The embellishments are all beautiful, too.
I, too, have decided not to buy any more. I did place an order last week from JoAnn's when they had their paper pads all 1/2 price. I only had a few double sided papers left, so I did order them. But, now, I don't plan on ordering/buying any more! ENOUGH! I'll have to live to be 459 to use it all up! That's probably not going to happen! Teehee! So much STUFF...so little TIME!
