A few more cards for a class...

Happy Hump Day!!! ;D The week sure flies by and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, because the weekend seems to fly by faster!!! LOL!!!! :D Oh well, gotta take what you can get, right?!?! Well I've been busy working on a few cards for a class I will be having on Friday. I finally finished my last two cards last night. I used two new SOTM from CTMH's new fall catty!!! :D Both of these cards are really simple and easy and I just love the color combo of the first card. My sister was over last night having dinner with us and I made her help me with this first card. I wanted to pick a FUN color combo and I think we did just that. She picked Breeze & Outdoor Denim and I added Pink Carnation and Sweet Leaf. When it was done she said that she picked a great color combo and I had to remind her that she only picked half...LOL!!! :D

Stamps: Annotations (CTMH) Paper: Outdoor Denim & Sweet Leaf TCS & White Daisy, Breeze & Pink Carnation CS (CTMH) Ink: Sweet Leaf & Outdoor Denim (CTMH) Accents: Mat Pack & White Daisy Bigger Brads & Sanding Block (CTMH)

For this card I used the October SOTM called Annotations. I love the tag shapes and my favorite part about this stamp is the font of the sentiments...LOVE IT!!! :D I used Breeze for my base and added a 3" x 4 1/4 " in piece of Outdoor Denim TCS that I scored and distressed a bit with my sanding block. I then cut a 1/4" strip of Pink Carnation CS that I pierced with my mat pack and taped it over my Outdoor Denim TCS. Next I stamped the tag in Sweet Leaf ink onto some Sweet Leaf TCS, cut out the center and added a piece of WhiteDaisy CS to the back and stamped my sentiment in Outdoor Denim ink. To finish the card I added two White Daisy Bigger brads to the top left hand corner. Although I like it, I still feel like it's missing something, what do you think?!?!? Should I keep as is, or should I change it?!?!

My next card uses the Sept. SOTM called Treasure Life. I am really lovin this stamp set and I chose to do a similar card like my card from yesterday using the same LO but used the colors Black, Watermelon & White Daisy and I really like it!!! :D My base is Black TCS and I added a 2" in strip of Watermelon CS that I ran through my CB using the Swiss Dots folder. I don't know what I would ever do without my CB...I LOVE IT!!! :D I then stamped my image in Watermelon ink onto White Daisy CS and layered it onto a piece of Black TCS. Next I added two silver brads to the flower centers and I stamped "thank you" from the Annotations stamp set in Black ink. Next I went to piercing around the image, added some black polka dot ribbon and pop dotted it onto my base. Pretty simple, eh?!?! :D

Stamps: Treasure Life & Annotations (CTMH) Paper: Watermelon, Black & White Daisy CS (CTMH) Ink: Watermelon & Black (CTMH) Accents: Silver Brads (Paper Studio), Mat Pack, Black Polka Dot Ribbon (Ribbon FX) & CB Swiss Dots

Sorry for such a long post, but if your still with me thanks!!! :D I hope to get a few cards made tonight...I'm in a swap and I really need to start working on those cards and I have also been very behind in completing Marjorie's color challenges so I want to catch up on those as well. I will also be back later to post an award that three fabulous bloggers gave to me, so stay tuned!!! :D


Have a Fabulous Day!!! :D
