Saturday Afternoon Crafting

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

I had some time to stamp today and came up with a couple cards. I thought you might like
As I have mentioned before, I love Black, White and any other color that comes to mind. Today I was wearing a turquoise blouse and thought that would be a fun combination.  The colors contrasted very well together and the card turned out very striking. Here is a look at it.

I used the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set. Basic Back ink and card stock as well as Turquoise Blue ink and card stock. I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  The Bird Builder and the Designer Label Punchs along with the Delicate Designs embossing folder to add some texture and depth to the card. And several Rhinestones for just the right amount of Bling.

Here is the inside.

The next card I used the same template and stamp set but chose to use several of the new In- Colors.

Baked Brown Sugar is by far my favorite color in the new In-color group. Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana are also really pretty colors. I used those colors on the leaves of the tree. I had some Antique Lace and a couple retired 5/8 Vanilla Trim Roses that I used for the belly band. I used an old time Scalloped Oval Sizzix vellum scrap I had in my stash that matches pretty well with our new Ovals Collection Frame-lits. The sentiment was framed with the Designer Lable Punch. I felt the Basic Jewel Pearls would match with the softness of the colors in the card and add to the antique feel to the card.

Here is a look at the inside.

That's all there is to it for tonight. I am glad I found some time to create something fun I sure do hope you do too!

Chat soon,
