September 16, 2011

Wow. We've been too busy lately! Taking trips out of town, working, cleaning, going out with friends. We've had fun, of course, but I haven't posted in over 2 weeks. And I've only managed to squeak out 2 cards in that time. *sigh

On to better things - this card is what I created for this weeks ColorQ challenge. I curled my skinny strips of Turquoise around a pen!

Stamp Sets: Circle Circus, Tiny Teacup
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray
Paper: Certainly Celery, Basic Gray, Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise
Tools: Word Window punch, Big Shot, Fiskars brand texture plates "Waves"
Embellishments: Tempting Turquoise brads, Certainly Celery twill tape ribbon (retired SAB item)


This next card is just one I've made for one of my ELM Designs customers. The DSP sheet flips open to reveal the "inside"/place to write. It is attached along the top with the brads and tucks into that suede circle at the bottom.

Stamp Sets: Extreme Elements, Vintage Labels
Ink: Soft Suede, River Rock, Basic Black
Paper: Basic Black, River Rock, Well Worn DSP, Whisper White, Soft Suede
Tools: 3/4" Circle punch, Wide Oval punch
Embellishments: Silver Brads

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!
