I needed to make a few cards for some people, so that's how I kept busy on this very hot summer day. Whew! What a day! Even the pooch didn't like it outside very much today.
I used K and Company paper on my first card. It is actually just one sheet - Cut 'N Paste Roses Thermography. The polka-dotted pattern is from the back side of the sheet. This is just beautiful paper. Along with it, I used a Stampendous birthday stamp and CTMH ribbon sparkles. Easy peasy. I am entering this card in Stamping 411 challenge.
My next card took a little more time as I spent some time giving this one an antique look. This card will go in the CPS 121 Challenge. I love this paper, and I've been a bit of a hoarder with it. Let me tell you a little of what I did with this card. Unless otherwise noted all supplies are from Close To My Heart. I used Silhouette paper, Make it Count stamp set, Lovely Lace stamp set, colonial white buttons, black organdy ribbon. The flowers are from Bazzill. I stamped the clock and numbers on colonial white with archival ink. I sponged over them with bamboo ink to give them an antique look. The lace is a stamp. I used Dazzle versamark and black embossing powder. I sponged over with bamboo ink. The embossing resists the ink, and it just fills in other parts. I like this antique card, and I hope the receiver will too!
My last card is for an early July birthday. Isn't this sugar-coated Reminisce paper fun? I used my largest circle and scalloped nesties to make the popped up circular fireworks. That gorgeous ribbon is from CTMH, the stamp is from Heidi Grace, and I used the window word punch from SU! I am putting this card in the weekly Sweet Stop challenge.
