I Played Today...2 Cards!

Hi there! I was able to head out to my craft room today and get busy! Yea! I have two cards to share in this post. Later this evening, I hope to post another project I worked on...

Here we go! I was completely inspired by this lovely card by Nancy Riley (who cased another stamper-Jackie Pedro) at iStamp.

I used a flower stamp by Heidi Grace in her Wild Daisy Road stamp collection. Actually I stamped it two times and cut them out (there were some parts of the stamped image I didn't want to use), layered them and added the pearl brad. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and gold brads. For a little more visual interest, and to make it more "my own" card, I added some satin ribbon that I got at Walmart. Cardstock: Textured Black (Hobby Lobby), Bamboo, Garden Green (Close To My Heart) This next card is a case of this pretty card by Carolyn King at My Blog By Cammie. You have to scroll a bit to see how closely I copied! I took a close up of the flower to show you that I used an open ring in CTMH's My Accents line (cannot for the life of me remember what those things are called...not conchos...) for the center of the flower. Then I added the rhinestone with a small piece of foam tape. I used the Share Laughter stamp set by Hero Arts as well as a set called Dotted Flourishes by Inkadinkado. The cardstock and ink colors are Outdoor Denim and Crystal Blue, both from CTMH.

I hope you are having a great weekend so far! I'll be back later with the next project. Oh boy, it feels good to want to create something! :o) Forgive the pictures showing up not centered...I was trying something different in my formating.

Hi Jeanne,

We are off tomorrow for Trinidad Colorado to attend our granddaughter's high school graduation. I remember a movie from my childhood called "Springtime in the Rockies" I think it starred Roy Rogers/ Dale Evans. They were my childhood heroes. I really liked your cards.

Pretty, pretty, pretty! Again, we're liking the same cards. However, I was never able to pull off Nancy Riley's card. Mine ended up in the trash . . . The most frustrating part about casing cards is not having the "right" stamps, particularly when one has so darned many!!! I'm glad you had the chance to get to your stamp room today.
