Brayered and Sponged Card

Hello everyone. I had to make another birthday card. This one is for my cousin that is turning 50! I figure a lot of people will be getting her cards with the number 50 on it. Well I didn't do that. I tried something similar to yesterday's card, but a little different effect. I put a scallop mask over the center to get the scalloped edge. I hope you enjoy this card. If you ever have any questions on how I made something I have on this blog just comment and ask or email me. I will be happy to answer your questions.

Here is the recipe for this card. All materials are Stampin' Up! unless noted.

Paper: So Saffron, Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, and Whisper White
Stamp sets: True Friend and Sincere Salutations
Stamp pads: Night of Navy, So Saffron, and Brocade Blue
Accessories: Rhinestone Brad (Fire Circles) and 1/4" grosgrain Night of Navy ribbon
Tools: Scallop Punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, and 1/16 hole punch
Non SU! items: Brayer, sponge dauber, and Frosted Lace Stickles

Fresh Cuts Again

This is another card that we made at the Open House I had on Tuesday evening. Everyone seemed to enjoy coming and making the make and takes that I had planned for them to do. It is neat seeing the ladies make something from paper and being happy with what they did.
I used these Stampin' Up! products for this card.
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, and Basic Black
Stamp Pad: StazOn Black and Real Red
Ribbon: 1/4" black grosgrain
Accessory: Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen

3" x 3" Card

I can say I really like this card and it was easy to make. I like this size for baby or wedding showers.
For this card I used these Stampin' Up! products:
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, and Bashful Blue
Stamp Set: Fun and Fast Notes
Ribbon: 1/4" bashful blue grosgrain
Accessories: Large Star Punch, Small Star Punch, and an Earth Elements brad

Fresh Cuts

I have been wanting to play with this set. I was going to use this card for my Open House, but then decided it might be too much to do. I really like these colors together.
This is the recipe for this card. Once again everything is SU! products.
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, and Chocolate Chip
Stamp Pads: Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip
Ribbon: Chocolate Chip Taffeta
Stamp Set: Fresh Cuts
Accessories: 1 3/8" circle punch and 1 1/4" circle punch

Anniversary Card

Hi everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. I have been plenty busy and when I do have time to do things I am tired and don't want to do anything. I know it isn't a good excuse, but never the less it is true.
This is a card I had made for my friend's anniversary. I liked it, but when I see it on here it really doesn't do it any justice. A lot of times I have found the pictures don't look as good as the real thing.
Anyway this is what I used to make this card. All supplies are from Stampin' Up!
Paper: Summer Sun, Elegant Eggplant, Really Rust, and Always Artichoke
Stamp Sets: Hugs and Wishes, Time Well Spent
Stampin' Around: So Swirly
Stamp Pads: VersaMark and Elegant Eggplant
SU! colored pencils (retired)
