cards to share...


Hello!!  Stopping in with two cards to share.  First up is a card for the soon to be closing July Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try and Color Throwdown.   Every month I think I will get my card for the RC sketch challenge done early and then every month the same thing happens... I get it done days before the challenge closes!  Maybe one of these days I will get it done early, lol.  I used the super sweet RC Love Blooms stamp set and the matching dies along with the RC Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts.  I stamped the outline flowers with the yellow and raspberry pink inks and then did second generation stamping for the solid portions.  Once that was done I stamped the leaves and die cut everything.  Strips of cardstock in the same colors were cut, adhered to a white cardstock panel and the die cut with a rectangle die.  Die cut the tag from white, the top part from yellow cardstock and then adhered together.  I stamped the sentiment and then adhered the flowers and leaves.  Layered everything up and I was done.



Next is a card for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.  I used some of my favorite A Jillian Vance Design dies to create the diagonal portion of the sketch.  The dies I used are the Leafy Vine die, the Daisy die and the Wildflowers die.  Trying to use up more of the patterned paper I have so I used some older papers from My Mind's Eye.  I used the two smallest flowers in each die set to create my flowers.  The vine was die cut twice from different papers, the bottom one cut into two pieces and then adhered to the panel that was die cut from more of the patterned paper.  I layered over the intact vine and then added the flowers.  I really like how the two different flowers look layered together and played on top of the vines.  The sentiment is from the AJVD Darkest Night stamp set and was stamped in dark blue ink.

Have a wonderful day!
