A Couple of White on White Cards

A couple of friends and I got together this past Sunday for a crafty playdate. We were originally going to play the previous Sunday, but a pretty big snowstorm put the kibosh on that idea. The three of us haven't gotten together  in a crafty way for years as one of the gals (Hi Felicia!) just recently moved back to Colorado. And would you believe, I completely forgot to take any pictures (slaps self on the forehead), so much for having pictures for my Project Life project. Anyway, I was kind of on the ball and had a super productive time! We'll say that's why I forgot to take pics. LOL

Here are a few of the cards I was able to make. I saw the first two on Pinterest. I thought the white on white was/is really striking!

I still need to stamp the sentiment on this one...oops.
Flower punches and Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. Bling from my stash. Used foam dots to pop up the flowers.
Kind of simple, but pretty, I think.

This flower on this next card was inspired by a tutorial I saw on Pinterest here.
I just played around with this card. It could probably use a sentiment, too. The pattern paper is from Chantilly (Close To My Heart) and so is the covered button. The yellow cardstock is also from CTMH and is called Buttercup. The doily underneath is from Martha Stewart. And thanks to Becky, for letting me use her embossing folder from Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby brand)
The rounded pieces under it are Rounded Tag Framelits by Sizzix.
I actually found them at my local Archiver's store. Thanks to Kay for sharing the product with me.
Becky also let me use her flower punches. She sure was a good sport in allowing me to use a lot of her supplies so I didn't have to pack up my whole craft room to come over and play.
*Ü*

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
Hope your week is off to a great start.

What gorgeous cards your white on white ones are. I especially like the second one with that sweet row of flowers.

And the last card you shared is fabulous. What a unqiue looking flower. And I love the embossing on that one.

Forgot to mention how nice that was for you to have a crafty play date with friends. I wish I had crafty friends nearby.

Hi Jeanne!

I really love the white on white card, it's very elegant looking. But the one with the flower is my favorite; I just love flowers and yours is very pretty. Thanks so much for sharing.

Love and Hugs,
