Two Card Wednesday....

Hi everyone! I have two cards to share with you today! The first one I actually made today, the second was made a few days ago!



My first card is for today's Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers and for today's Color Throwdown to use Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, and Kraft!



I pulled out my new set, For All You Do... It's so versatile and I just love how easily it makes a card come together!



I paired it with the new Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper which I just love! It has wonderful patterns and best of all, features a lot of the new in colors!



The flowers are each stamped twice, once on the main panel and then once on a piece of scrap and cut out. They are mounted on dimensionals for added POP! I also used a pearl from the Pretties kit as the center of both flowers.



This card is all Stampin' Up except for the ribbon... I didn't think the Crushed Curry or Melon Mambo ribbon popped enough for this card, so I went into my stash of ribbon that I bought before I became totally obsessed with Stampin' Up and found this great black and white polka dotted ribbon!



Card Details:

Paper: Whisper White (#100730), Basic Black (#102851), Kraft (#107070), Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Pape r (#115675)



Stamps: For All You Do (#115360)



Ink: Basic Black (#101179), Melon Mambo (#115656), Crushed Curry (#115659)



Accessories: Silver Brad (#104336), Pretties Kit (#109114), Word Window Punch (#105090), Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430), Mat Pack (#105826), Paper-Piercing Tool (#116631), Black & White Polka Dotted Ribbon (non-SU)



*Remember, all Stampin' Up products can be bough in my online store 24/7!



My second card today is for the Color Dare & for Monday's 2Sketches4You challenge!





Today's Color Dare is to use Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, & Apricot Appeal. I'm not sure I like this color combo, but I guess it made an ok card... haha!



Most of the elements on this card are Stampin' Up, with the exception of the ribbon (which I once again found in my non-su ribbon stash that I've had for years!), and the adhesive rhinestones which I really wish Stampin' Up would start selling because I love them!



The butterfly is stamped and cut out... I just ran adhesive on the center of it's body and attached it to the card, then I bent the wings up to give a 3-D effect!



Card Details:

Paper: Apricot Appeal (#105218), Night of Navy (#100867), Rich Razzleberry (#115316), Whisper White (#100730), Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper (#115675)



Stamps: Great Friend (#113792)



Ink: Night of Navy (#102977), Rich Razzleberry (#115658)



Accessories: Adhesive Rhinestones (non-su), Sheer White Ribbon (non-su), Circle Nestabilities (non-su)



Thanks for looking! I hope you have a great day!
