This Week's Cards

I have been busy making cards for a November Craft Show and not posting very much. I would like to share three cards from this week's work. This card was my first with Stampin' Up's Flower Shop stamp set. I got the stamp set and punch with some birthday money I was given in September.

On Thursday night I had a class on "fancy fold" cards, and, in preparation for the class, I made this calendar triangle easel card. It was a big hit.

SC458-Bashful Blue Christmas

Yesterday I was working on Christmas cards. I had pinned a card sometime ago and as I was looking through my pins, I came across a card that I really liked. I liked the layout and it just seemed to say "Christmas". This is the card I made. Here is a link to the card that I case'd--similar and yet different.

I inked the embossing folder using a brayer and Memento Sky Blue ink. That worked perfectly with SU Bashful Blue card stock. I was really happy with the results.

This morning I looked at the sketch challenge layout for this week. WOW!  So close to what I did the night before. Here is my card for today's challenge using the same techniques, same basic colors and a very similar layout.

World Card Making Day

I am posting this card, made with Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, for World Card Making Day. This is one of my favorite scripture verses and the stamp is from their "Happy Birthday" stamp set. I think that this was one of the first ODBD stamp sets that I purchased. I always love using it.

Here are two more cards made with ODBD Stamps. We stampers are blessed to have a company like Our Daily Bread Designs.
