mish mash

Hello! Today I am catching up again with a “mish mash” of various cards I haven’t shared. The first two are from 2018 using the Lawn Fawn Critter Concert stamps and dies. The black edge on the first card was made with an old Martha Stewart Cornice Edge punch. The background was masked and sponged.

I used Spellbinders Heart Circles dies on the second card. My sentiment was done on the computer.

The next card is one of my favorite masculine cards and it gets a prize for hanging around without being photographed for so long. lol. I made this in at least 2015! Stamps are SU! By the Tide and Hardwood. The sentiment is an old Sweet ‘n Sassy set, Rhubarb’s Birthday Wish. The tag is watercolor paper. The inks used are Pool Party, Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, and Soft Suede. I really need to use that burlap ribbon again!

Here’s another masculine card I recently made with another SU! set…Moon Lake. The sentiment is from Sweet ‘n Sassy’s Keep in Touch, Too. Papers are black, Smoky Slate, and Lost Lagoon. Ink is SU! Basic Gray. I also used the SU! Seaside embossing folder, MISTI, 2″ circle punch, and Die-Namics Cross-Stitch Circles.

I started with 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/2 and 6 1/2 so it overlaps. The inside…

My next card was for a challenge a few of my friends and I did to use the SU! stamp set Papillon Potpourri. I also used SU! Timeless Textures and SNSS Birthday Greetings. Colors are SU! Mellow Moss, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Perfect Plum and Pale Plum. Others…SU! Lace 3D embossing folder, paper doily, SU! Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches, circle punches.

I also decorated the envelope! The “deliver to” is a wood mount stamp by Printworks (I think it’s from Hobby Lobby).

The poppy thanks card is inspired by one that Bette Manning created. I just changed a few things. The poppies are from the current SU! mini catalog. I loved how she used them with the wreath embossing folder! I also decorated the envelope again.

And my last one today is a 6×6 recipe card. If you never made Buckeye Brownies, you seriously need to!

Have a great day and stay well!

 

 

needle & thread

Hello! Once again I am behind on sharing some of the “just for fun” cards I’ve made. Here’s one that I made this week using the SU! Needle & Thread stamp set and the Needlepoint Elements coordinating dies. I used a piece of patterned paper from the Needlepoint Nook pack of dsp and started my card off with that Flirty Flamingo color.

I also added some flowers in Berry Burst and some leaves in Pear Pizzazz. A little Old Olive twine was added to the die cut sentiment.

I love decorating the envelopes to match but most of the time I forget to! I think I might keep a few handy in my tool caddy to help me remember. Anyway, this time I did pull an envelope out and stamped it to match.

Have a great night!
