Watercooler Llamas Spring & SAB Last Call HOP

This post is for the Spring HOP - "Sale-A-Bration Last Call" with the Watercooler Llamas.  If you should get lost along the way just click the HOME icon here to go to the beginning. 
If you are following the HOP I'm sure you have been viewing a lot of wonderful projects using the Spring catty and Free SAB items. If you are following in order you've arrived from Buffy's wonderful samples on her blog here, and you can just click the icon Previous to return.
Now here's a few of my SAB HOP cards.
The first two cards uses the farris wheel from the SAB set "Feeling Sentimental"
The first used black, white, going gray and basic gray cardstock. The darker gray piece is embossed with the Fancy Fans embossing folder. I colored the rhinestones with a red Sharpie pen. 
 The second card uses the same set "Feeling Sentimental" and also "That's the Ticket". A touch of burlap and hemp thread finish it off.

Two more cards using the darling bicycle and one with the phone booth.
 (There is also few non SU items used to create my samples.)

A few new SAB items that I mixed with old or retired items are the "Oh Hello Bundle" which has the stamp set and matching oval dies and the paper pierce mat that matches the butterfly punch. (I CASED this card layout from Mary Fish). 
The last card uses the "Oh Whale Bundle" with stamp set and matching die. I placed the whale 'in a wave' made from the "Sycamore Street" DSP. (I CASED this idea and layout from my upline Nance Leedy at Canopy Crafts).  The the focal point is popped up on the "Cloud" embossed large circle. I love that embossing folder!. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

You go girl! All fabulous cards Diane. I love the variety and the Oh Whale tucked inside the DSP is pure genius. Love the use of the burlap, gives the card great texture. I love the cloud embossing folder as well. Hugs Karen

Wow, Diane! These are incredible. My favorite is the first one. I'm definitely CASEing it! It's so gorgeously vintage! They're all beautiful, though.
