Hello Stamping Friends
Last night, I made these three cards. I didn't start out with the intention of using this stamp set so much, but it was out on the table and I took advantage of it.
The first card is for the Sketch challenge at SCS posted last week. It also incorporates a Colour Me..! challenge that I skipped last year. The use of coastal cabana against the darker tones really intrigued me.
Next, I have another Valentine for a friend. This started out as a SCS Clean and Simple challenge, but it's not very CAS in the final product! The challenge was to put a New Year's resolution in a card. I want to lose weight, but no stamps for that! LOL I do have a resolution to use my current stash, including lots of scraps and embellishments that have been unused for a long time. I also want to use "unfinished" project pieces. I had the embossed piece of blushing bride set aside (embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.) I placed it on a rich razzleberry card base. I had 2 pieces of 6x6 paper in a folder of LOTS of DSP scraps, so I decided to make large hearts with my SU framelits. I used elegant eggplant pattern paper and long-retired razzleberry lemonade. The smaller heart is whisper white, with the rose stamp, colored in pear pizzazz, blushing bride, and rich razzleberry. I added some pear pleated ribbon and non-SU green gems to add more contrast. Once again, the sentiment is paired with the modern label punch.
It was lots of fun to use the stamp set several times in one evening. I should probably try this again!
Thanks for coming by!
