I'm working more than I'm used to right now & I'm trying to fight off a cold. That probably explains why I'm taking so long to catch up on blogs & get cards made & posted. I did finally finish a couple & since they're both done with kraft cardstock I'll post them together.
First is my entry for The Kraft Journal, SSS Wed, SSS Work It Wed, Stamping Sensations & Penny Black & More. Very simple card that took 3 tries! First I had it completely finished & then realized the branch was stamped upside down! As we say, it's only paper. Did give me a chance to see that I really didn't like the sentiment stamped in brown & that red glitter might be better than silver.
Unfortunately, a white embossed sentiment didn't look right either, but at least I figured that out before attaching the panel to the card. Finally the stamping was good & after trying 3 different bows I settled on the narrow white satin. In the end it turned out like I wanted. Don't you think the sparkly embossing powder is festive? The stamps are Penny Black & the dies are Lil' Inkers.
My other card uses the PTI MIM technique of layered stamping on kraft for Jennifer McGuire's Share Handmade Kindness Wk 4 Strangers with another Card Shower card going to Emily's family. Super simple 1 layer using PTI Friendly Flowers & Flower Fusion #8 with Brilliance Moonlight White, PTI Scarlet Jewel, Autumn Rose & Simply Chartreuse and VersaMagic Jumbo Java. Didn't really know how I'd use the little flower stickers, but couldn't resist them--perfect for this flower center, I think. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be checking your blogs soon.
