Open House Samples

Here are the two cards we did at my open house yesterday. The pink one is a complete copy from a sample off of the convention boards, but the blue one is mine. Upsy Daisy is the set used in this card. It's on sale until Sept 30th for just $16.11. I LOVE this set. The three colors used here are Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red & Tangerine Tango. Ink up the flower stamp in pink, then use sponge daubers to add the red and orange to the stamp before you stamp it. The button is from the the new Button Bouquet, I used mine up side down because I liked the shiny party better than the front for this card.

This card used the new Urban Garden Designer paper which is punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. The "Love" image is stamped in Night of Navy and then colored with Kiwi Kiss & Baja Breeze inks and a Blender Pen. The ribbon is the striped Kiwi Kiss. The chipboard was left raw and applied with Tombow Multi glue. The butterfly is from the same set (Dreams du Jour) and is stamped with Whisper White Craft ink.

These are so pretty! I love the layout of #1. The circle on the top corner is such a great touch. The color of the 2nd card is fabulous.

These cards are beautiful! I especially love the blue card...there's just something about stripes that always "gets" me! The chipboard frame is great too. Thanks for the inspiration!
