Wild & Sweet Swap Card

Die Cutting & Embossing –Scalloped Contours dies, Stylish Shapes dies, Timber 3D embossing folder

Beauty of the Earth

I get creative block often (as I’ve commented here) and besides sketches, limited supplies helps. The background on this card is patterned paper from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of the Earth paper pack. I wish I could create watercolor backgrounds that look this good, of course that would mean I’d need to practice. 🙂

This card was inspired by OWH Sketch #23.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets – Beauty of Friendship
Die Cutting & Embossing – Beautiful Trees dies
Ink – Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive
Paper – Basic White cardstock, Basic White Thick cardstock, Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Early Espresso cardstock, Misty Moonlight cardstock, Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper
Tools – Paper Trimmer, Simply Scored, Stamparatus, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
Adhesive – Stampin’ SEAL, liquid glue

Friendships Refresh the Soul

I’m playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge today. This may look like a simple card, but my craft area is a mess with everything I pulled out to make it. The sentiment is from Beauty of Friendship, the flowers are from Color & Contour, and then three die sets to finish it off. The label edges are inked with Highland Heather and I even stamped on the inside.

I wanted to use my new Prismacolors that husband got me for our anniversary so I tried to find the closest matches I could to the paper.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets – Beauty of Friendship, Color & Contour
Die Cutting & Embossing – Brilliant Winds dies, Hippo & Friends dies, Scalloped Contours dies
Ink – Basic Gray stamp pad, Highland Heather stamp pad
Paper – Basic White cardstock, Basic White Thick cardstock, Highland Heather cardstock, Mint Macaron cardstock, Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper
Accents & Embellishments – Pastel Pearls
Coloring Tools – Prismacolors colored pencils Canary Yellow (PC916), Jade Green (PC1021), & Lilac (PC956); sponge daubers
Tools – Paper Trimmer, Simply Scored, Stamparatus, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, Take Your Pick
Adhesive – Stampin’ SEAL, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals , liquid glue
