Just a few cards I've made this week

I want to share a few cards with you that I made recently.

I love the new Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and came up with the card below.  I used a strip of vellum that I ran through the Big Shot to get the pattern on the top and bottom.  I heat embossed "love" from the Best of February stamp set.  I added a few flowers from the 5/8" flower trim, and my card was done.




 To color my flowers, I lightly tapped them in the ink pad.  The card turned out quite lovely, if I do say so myself.

Another card I made is a tri-fold card.  I saw a video by a Stampin' Up demonstrator, Donna Weatherby, on how to make this card, so I had to try making one.  The front of the card, below, is done in three colors:  black, white, and Daffodil Delight. 

Pennie, my upline, had a challenge for our meeting this month -- to use black and white with one other color on a card to swap.  There would be five of us at the meeting, so I'd need to make five identical cards.  I made the card as a possible swap, but I decided on another design to make for everyone.  I would have had to order more of several supplies to reproduce five more exact copies of this card.  Instead, the card went to my upline as a thank you for how wonderful she is.

By the way, the ribbon on the card is actually made with three ribbons that we sell:  the 5/8" Organza ribbon is on the bottom, the 1/2" Seam Binding ribbon in Daffodil Delight is next, and the Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon is on top.  Below is a picture of the open card.


I then made a scribble card in black, white, and old olive.  It was the card I decided to make for the swap at our meeting.  I used the free Sale-a-bration stamp set called Bloomin' Marvelous.  


As you can see, it's been a good week for me for stamping.

Until next time,
Tina
