Variety of Cards

Prices lowered for many items in my sale pages.  Contact form doesn't seem to be working, so please leave a comment if you're interested. 

I've participated in The Card Chain Challenge for quite a few years.  Last month I signed up to send my card to Gail who keeps the chain going.
I stamped the old HA Starry Night in Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue to make a wintery friendship card.  The sentiment is W&W who sadly is going out of business.  I'm entering ABNH.

This week ITP has daily challenges.  Luckily you have 2 days to enter your project.  Not sure I'll have time to do all of them.  Here's my entry for The Joy of Card Making--Color Combo.
So glad I have PTI inks & cardstocks in the required colors: Scarlet Jewel, Olive Twist, Autumn Rose, Pure Poppy & Ripe Avocado.  The images are PTI The Sweet Life & Spruce & Sprigs with the sentiment from Framed Out #9.  My friend, Vikki, cut a bunch of Scallop Stackers: Large for me--perfect for this Christmas Rose card.  I added Stickles to the berries for a bit of sparkle & the flowers are mounted with foam tape.  I'm also entering SSS Monday.

Next is ITP The Joy of Card Making--Card Sets.  One of my last PTI purchases was Wildflower Garden--perfect for a card set. 
I really love having PTI inks & matching cardstock.  I decided on Spring Rain, Winter Wisteria, Limeade Ice & Pale Peony.
I used 3 different sentiments stamped in Smokey Shadow.  Hard to see, but each panel is splattered with the same ink used for the flower.
Thought something else was needed, so I added a narrow strip of black cardstock under the sentiment.  My friends make their own cards, so I'll probably use these myself.  I'm also entering WAW.

  1. A gorgeous variety of cards Greta. I love them all. The last set of note cards is simply so beautiful in the soft colours. Love the CCC card. I have that stamp and it is sadly lacking some love. Sad to hear about Winnie and Walter are closing down. I love their stamps.

  2. Lots of loveliness here Greta! The CCC card for Gail is beautifully elegant, I love it and am imaginging the pearlescent shimmer makes it even more special in real life.

  3. I'll start with the set of cards, love the matched silhouette and the cardbase and that tiny black band...elegant finish. Your CCC card is sweet and festive in its soft shade. Your rose card is lovely as well.
