a couple of cards...

 Hey there!  Popping in with a couple of cards that I made over the last few days.  First up is a card for Color Throwdown.  I recently purchased a few things from the Greetery and pulled them out for this card.  I purchased the pretty Bittersweet  Bouquet stamp set which is more of a fall themed stamp set.  I used it to create a more spring like card.   It was really easy to stamp all the different layers in the image and then die cut it with the matching die.  All the inks are from Catherine Pooler.  The sentiment is from another new set I purchased called Simply Wonderful.  The set contains all of these beautiful scripty sentiments and then the large word "wonderful".  I picked the sentiment for the front of the card and stamped it.  I then stamped the word "wonderful" using the two green inks I used for the leaves on the inside of the card.  I finished off the card with the pink die cut bow (also from the Greetery) and some red jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.


Here is the inside:



The second card is for Freshly Made Sketches.  I recently made a purchase from Scrapbook.com.  If you haven't purchased things from Scrapbook.com you should give them a look.  They often have a free with purchase item, good sales and other promotions and carry most of the major stamping brands.  When I made my purchase they were offering a 6x8 pad of paper from a company that I had not heard of called P13.  The pad of paper looked really pretty so I decided to add it to my cart.  I'm so glad that I did!  It is BEAUTIFUL!  So I used it to create my card.  I die cut some butterfly patterned paper with a fishtail flag die from MFT.  On the backside was a woodgrain pattern so I used that for my background and adhered the banner.  The sentiment is from a Stampin Up! set called Floral Gallery.  I almost used the stamp set that coordinates with the dies, but just couldn't pass up using the beautiful papers!  I die cut the sentiment from another piece of patterned paper, additional die cuts from scrap paper, adhered them together for dimension and adhered it to the card front.  I trimmed out three of the butterflies, applied a little bit of Star Dust Stickles (looks very pretty in real life) and adhered them.  There are sentiments in the stamp set to use with the die cut sentiment.  I couldn't decide which to use so I will add something later.  Most likely inside the card.


Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!

WOW! What wonderful and beautiful cards Rosemary, I love both but the pink frame and flowers bring me in to it, with the added bow, fabulous. However the butterflies and wood bring nature to me with the fab colour mix too.

Catching up after a couple of weeks away from blogland, Rosemary ... and what a treat to see all the loveliness you've been creating! These two are beautiful ... the bittersweet bouquet is fabulous with that elegant bow ... and the pp buterflies against the wood background is both elegant and rustic at the same time! A gorgeous duo! Hugs, Anita :)
