Here is a card I did for a recent PaperCrafts group:
The original card used a die for the chairs. I used oval punches and some old fashioned paper piecing.
At that same meetup, Heidi had us decorating paper mache frames and filling them with photos in a collage style. We painted the frames brown, then added incredible shine and texture with SU!'s new champagne mist shimmer paint. When that was all dry, I stamped right over it, and filled the frame with some snaps from the SU! 2009 convention:
I finished it off at home with some chipboard flourishes and pearls. Don't know if you can really appreciate the shimmer paint in a photo, but the stuff rocks! It made that frame look like it was made of silk.
The last new card was done for a challenge. The inspiration piece was a room from a catalog -- chocolate brown furniture, accessories in creams and greens, and a clear vase with branches on the desk. This is what I created:
I stamped the jar on some acetate, so in person it does resemble glass. The stems were stamped directly onto the cardstock, and the berries (?) were done with a pencil eraser and white pigment ink. I trimmed the jar close to the outline and positioned and glued it down over the stems.
