With Sympathy...

Wednesday already? I know! Today’s card was made for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

I started by stamping the brushed circle image in crisp cantaloupe and then adding the sentiment in black. cts 1 (537x640)

Then using more crisp cantaloupe and calypso coral ink, I created these little flowers and then die cut them. I added a few leaves and then adhered to the card base. cts 2 (640x401)

I am pretty happy with how this card turned out!

A Single Tulip...

How do Monday! I am happy to report that our girls’ basketball team won their state championship game on Saturday! They are back to back champions, having won last year! A pretty awesome achievement!

Today’s card was made for the Freshly Made Sketches sketch using the Color Throwdown colors. I started by stamping the stem out of old olive and the tulip out of tangerine tango and crushed curry inks. I added the milk bottle and filled in some water with marina mist. fms ct 1 (531x640)

A sentiment, a piece of pattern paper from my stash and a trip thru the linen impression plate and this card is done. fms ct 2 (640x391)

I opted to make a one layer card for this challenge. I started by stamping a doily of so saffron for the background and then added the flowers out of melon mambo and cucumber crush. aysi 127 1 (509x640)

I finished off by adding a sentiment and running the card thru my linen impression plate. A fairly simple card with colors that I thought might be hard to marry together. But I love how this turned out! aysi 127 2 (640x489)

With Sympathies...

Today’s card is very clean and simple. I needed to make a sympathy card. A friend of mine recently lost her husband and I wanted something that was understated but elegant. 1 (560x640)

I started with a base of vanilla that I ran thru the linen impression plate. I die cut a piece of pattern paper with my horizontal stitched dies. 2 (640x448)

The sentiment was gold embossed on vanilla and ran thru both the linen plate and the double stitched oval die. I layered everything and added a bit of gold cording underneath.

Supplies: CS: PTI vanilla. Paper from stash. Stamps: SU! simply sketched. Dies: MFT horizontal stitched and double stitched ovals. PTI linen impression plate. Other: SU! gold cording. Gold embossing powder.
