Oh my goodness, it delicious! Yummy! But you probably didn't come here to read about my recommendation for coffee creamers now did you? (ha!) Actually, I'm here to share a couple of cards but before I do that I want to share that I'm "Cream" in the Play Date Cafe Challenge blog's coffee this past week!! Thanks for the honor ladies! If you check out the right hand side of my blog you'll see the BADGE! This is my second time to be given this honor with many other very talented paper crafters!
Here is this weeks color challenge from Play Date Cafe Challenge #43
Here are a few details:
I used white cardstock (Weyerhaeuser) for the base (5.5 x 5.5) Cut a piece of lime green cardstock (DCWV pastels), 5.25 x 5.25 and designer paper (Creative Imaginations - Christine Adolph) which is doublesided, 5x5 and round the corners with EK Success corner rounder. Next I used a Label 1 Nestablilities (Spellbinders & Cuttlebug, Provocraft) and diecut one piece of the same designer paper (remember it's doublesided!) using the largest die. Cut a strip .5 x 2.5 of designer paper. (see photo for placement). The sentiment is a stamp from Taylored Expressions (Care and Comfort set). To prepare the paper for the sentiment I first used the Nestabilites Classic Scallop circle to cut out a white circle. Keeping the metal die in place, I blended ink onto the paper using Distress Inks: Broken China and Peeled Paint, then stamped the sentiment with Palette, black. I used a larger scallop circle die using a dk green cardstock (Bazzill). Assembled the card then added Dew Drops (Robin's Nest) to embellish. It's very subtle which is the look I was going for since this is a sympathy card.
CARD #2 for CHRISTIAN PAPER CRAFTS!!
Obviously this is the sketch for this weeks challenge and the color challenge from Jen (AKA Miss Boo) is to use "SUMMER PRIMARY COLORS: RED, BLUE AND YELLOW
(Thanks Jennipher for a great sketch this week! You promised less layers this week, but still the inspiration and possibilities were endless!) I managed to combine two challenges into one card! Love it when I can do that!! (tee-hee!)
Here is my card!
The sentiment is a Scripture stamp from Verve and I LOVE this paper from The Girls' Paperie by Margie (On Holiday collection). The red cardstock (base) is from my Key Ingredients Kit (Taylored Expressions)
I stamped the center with a stamp from "Botanicals" from Gina K Designs, (it is 1 Corinthians 13 love chapter) The flower punch is from EK Success and I punched two using the doublesided paper from Girls Paperie (On Holiday) then I punched two circles (1-red, 1- blue) using dimensionals and Zots I attached the layers.
Here is a little more detail: I used my Dotted Swiss embossing folder to emboss the red strip and the Martha Stewart border punch to embellish with blue cardstock (DCWV), I added a flower shaped button and hemp cord to tie a bow beneath it.
Didn't mean for this post to be so long! If you've lasted this long,
