Stamps, Paper, Glitter! Sketch Challenge #6

I dug out some old favorites to make this card. I used River Rock for the card base then made the vertical columns from Ruby Red and Ginger Blossom DSP. The stamp set is Embrace Life. I don't mind admitting that wrapping that string around the paper was a pain in the @%!*. But I think it came out okay, otherwise. This card is for the Stamps, Paper, Glitter! sketch challenge.

Stamps Paper Glitter Sketch Challenge

This s my first attempt at using the Parisian Breeze DSP. I just love the weight of it and the texture. I made this card for Kerin Sylvester's sketch challenge. Find it here. Thanks so much for looking.

Just Under the Wire

Better late than never, I always say! This is my card for Kerin Sylvester's sketch challenge. This is the first time I've tried the Texturz plates and I LOVE them. I had a feeling I was going to, and I was right!! I've been kicking around this idea of a really simple card using just a few colors and a white background. This version is not my original idea, but I like it all the same. I added the 1/4" circles to the ribbon because it looked rather bare without them.

Kerin's Sketch Challenge

I did this card for Kerin Sylvester's sketch challenge (find it here). I saw a gift bag when I was in Marshall's the other day and that was my inspiration for this card. I used Going Gray, Basic Black and Basic Gray cardstock. I stamped the Fifth Avenue Floral Images in Basic Black and Basic Gray. The bottom images are embossed in white. The Baja Blue flower is popped on dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black.

Inspired by Nature

I just love the Inspired by Nature stamp set. I've seen so many beautiful cards on SCS using it so I thought I'd try one. To me it really seems like the grass is gently blowing in the breeze. I used Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, and Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the grass in Kiwi Kiss, then used markers to color in the daisies with Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, and Old Olive. This card reminds me of looking through a hole in a fence to the beautiful flowers on the other side.
