I've been unable to update for a couple of weeks due to some upheaval in my personal life, but that's all settled now....so you have me back!
I've been working on quite a few things recently, so I'm about to bombard you with a bunch of projects.
This birthday card is probably my favorite that I've done in a long time. It uses Stampin' Up! paper in Smoky Slate and Whisper White. The inks are Melon Mambo and Smoky Slate. Stamp Sets are Flower Shop, Secret Garden, and Sincere Salutations. I also used the Decorative Label Punch for the front greeting. The inside of the card is a sentiment from the Fiskars Make A Wish Quotes set. For some reason, I just love the color combo!
This card features Stampin' Up! Whisper White paper, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive inks, and the Secret Garden Stamp sets. The sentiments are both from other sets that I had lying around.
I masked a portion of the card and then just randomly stamped some flowers and leaves in each ink. I then used a scoring tool to add some interest above and below the stamped portion.
I made this card using old cardstock I had lying around in black and white and a yellow that nearly matched the Daffodil Delight ink from Stampin' Up!. I also used Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo inks. Again, I used the Secret Garden Stamp Set for the flowers and added a small flower from my stash. The sentiment is from the See Ya Later set by Stampin' Up!.
Each of these cards was made with random cardstock from my stash, but I made them at the same time with the same idea in mind. I wanted a simple card that would lay flat in an envelope. Inks featured are Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive (card 1); Real Red, Old Olive (card 2), Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand (card 3), and Chocolate Chip for each of the sentiments. Again, I used the Secret Garden Stamp set for the images (Geez, I must like that one!). Card 2 has a flower in the top right corner that I used the coordinating die cut set to cut out. Basically, I made an oopsy and needed to cover some ink...! I kind of like it there though.
That's all for now! I hope to back in the next couple of days with a smaller post (don't want to go too overboard!).
