Hello! I’m back with more cards that I’ve recently made while “virtual stamping” with friends and playing along with challenges. My first card was for a challenge to make a split card. I used Altenew’s Flower Arrangement stamp set & matching dies. Altenew makes such pretty flowers!
Here’s a pic of how I placed the flowers on a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock. I didn’t draw a line down the center with a pencil per directions…I just lightly scored a line. After they’re glued down, you cut the piece in half and trim the edges to create two cards.
Colors used: SU! Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, and Garden Green.
My next card was for a challenge to make a Tall Z-Fold card. I used the retired SU! Simply Soft set, along with Touches of Texture (bee) and Peaceful Moments. The border was punched with a Martha Stewart Edge punch.
Colors: Distress Picked Raspberry and SU! Daffodil Delight.
Here’s one for a Four Fold card challenge. Again I used Touches of Texture and Peaceful Moments.
Colors used: SU! Vintage Violet, Cool Caribbean, Smoky Slate, and Sweet Sugarplum.
This next one was for Offset Triple Stamping. I used SU! Positive Thoughts and the Scripty embossing folder.
For a challenge to use a new purchase, I used my May Paper Pumpkin kit (mine arrived late as the first box was lost in the mail!). I made an acetate tent card. They are a lot of fun!
The next few cards were created with a new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps set called Peace Be Still. This is a great masculine set! I paired it with papers by The Paper Studio- The Pink Navy. This one was for a sketch challenge.
I got out the old craft knife to cut inside the rope.
Another one for a sketch challenge and also uses Peace Be Still.
Two more cards I made with Peace Be Still were made with layered ovals. I have no idea where this design originated but here’s a video with circles to show you how. I’ve seen it done with various shapes and they all look cool!
Cardstock colors: SU! Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay.
I combined two challenges, to make a collar card and a patriotic one, and used the Paper Smooches Circle of Honor stamp set. There’s an epoxy star sticker inside the large star. It’s so sad to hear that Kim is retiring Paper Smooches! But I wish her the best in her new endeavors!
I’ve found a few more cards that I didn’t photograph yet so I’ll save those for next time! Have a great day and stay safe!
