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,


  1. Great cards! Good Job! Don't you love the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set?!!!

  2. These are all so lovely but the "love" card is so beautiful & romantic looking.
