Hello on this Thursday morning.....

my stamping friends!!! Are you ready for some more cards from me? For the last few days I have been showing you some cards I have been working on but had not yet posted. Well, the ones that I am about to show you today are two of those ;D.


These two cards look somewhat similar, as I wanted to make a set to go in a box, but changed my mind :D. You all know what I am talking about, right? You have an idea in your head, but you change last minute and don't go with it at all.


Have a look at my


Be still......



Recipe:


Paper: SU Creamy Caramel, PTI Dark Chocolate, K&Company Roam


Stamps: ODBD Scripture Collection 3 and Iron Works Borders


Ink: SU Creamy Caramel, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Walnut Stain





Accessories: Nesties Labels 1, Sizzix embossing folder Damask, Ginger Dew Drops, cream flower handmade using my Cricut Expression and the Accent Essentials cartridge, antique copper brad, dark brown sheer ribbon, tulle butterfly, foam tape, 3D glue dots


To make the embossed BG stand out a little more I rubbed my sponge with the Distressing Ink over it and it sure enough made the embossing pop :D:D!! I think that this Damask embossing folder works pretty well with the Ironworks stamp set which is part of the Anniversary stamp sets that was just released last week.



All right, that was that and on to my second card



Be strong......






Recipe:
Paper: SU Creamy Caramel, Groovy Guave (ret.) DCWV The Rustic Stack

Stamps: ODBD Scripture Collection 3

Ink: SU Creamy Caramel, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tea Dye

Accessories: Nesties Labels 1, Toffee colored satin ribbon, Copper Dew Drops, paper flowers from a big bunch I bought at Michael's and simply cut off the long stems ;D;D, EK Success Scroll edger punch, antique brass heart charm and cross charm (you have to look close to see the cross charm..it is right n top of the heart, sorry) Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Autumn Leaves, Tim Holtz Distressing tool, foam tape, 3D glue dots, Kaiser half pearls in copper, Maya Road Vintage pearl stick pin and brown glass bead and antique brass spacer bead and stopper.

If you click on the photo you can see the shimmer the DP has. If you have not looked at the DWCV The Rustic Stack...go and check it out. Online does not do any justice. I went to Joanne's a few weeks ago and actually picked it up and fell in love right there in the store....awesome papers, some are shimmery others are not...just the right heavy paper for a Vintage feel. I love it!!

So, what do you think? I am now just waiting for the right occasion to give these cards to a friend or two that needs some encouragement. ;D

Thanks for stopping by today....you certainly made my day!!!

Hugs and blessings,

Love these! The first one looks like leather (both layers), WOWzers. The second looks more feminine in color and is just gorgeous! Love that groovy guava w/ creamy caramel.
