Two Card Saturday
I have found that my weeks are pretty busy, so I must do my stamping during the weekend. Which is fine with me, at least I get to stamp! I finally placed an order for new Stampin' Up stuff, so I can't wait to get that! I mostly got holiday stuff so I can start working on my cards and such for Christmas. We all know it will be here before we know it!
The first card (shown above) is one I made for last Sunday's Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. I chose a card that I can't find now.. typical. HAHA! I basically kept the same layout and clean & simple design, but I changed the stamps and colors. I used one of my favorite sets, "Season of Friendship". I've always loved this versatile tree.
I popped a few of the leaves up by stamping them, cutting them out, and mounting them on Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment is cut with a scallop oval die cut and mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals.
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso, Summer Starfruit, Rich Razzleberry, Cameo Coral
Stamps: Season of Friendship
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Scallop Oval Nestabilities
Splitcoast Stampers. I again, used one of my all time favorite sets, "Live Your Dream". I just love this image and wanted to get it out and play with it again. It's been a while since I've used it.
The color challenge called for Blackberry Bliss & Hello Honey, both colors I don't have, so I subbed for what I thought was the closest: Rich Razzleberry and More Mustard. I think this color combo is pretty!
The sketch was a challenge at first, just with that off center panel, but I do love how it turned out. The little baubles on the side are probably 7-8 years old and I'm not sure I've even ever used them! So, extra points for using old embellishments! HAHA!
The image was colored with my Stampin' Write Markers which I believe to be a must-have for any stamper.
Paper: Very Vanilla, Spice Cake DP, Rich Razzleberry DP, Rich Razzleberry, More Mustard
Stamp: Live Your Dream
Ink: (all markers) More Mustard, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede
Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Taffeta Ribbon, Baubles (no idea what brand they are)
Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a great weekend!
