Quick Cards!

Good afternoon! Do you have big plans for this weekend? I've got two parties here - I'm looking forward to the hostesses getting to shop! :D That's always the fun part!

OK. On to the sharing!

The sentiments on this card are all from the stamp set CLOSE AS A MEMORY; the longer verse is in the inside. The background on the card is from BOHO BACKGROUNDS, and the strip is ITTY BITTY BACKGROUNDS. The cardstock colors are Basic Gray, Going Gray, Basic Black, and Whisper White; the backgrounds are stamped in Basic Gray, and the words are stamped with Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder.

To do the faux tag, we stamped the saying and embossed it, then punched it out with the large oval punch. Next, we dragged the edges of it through a Versamark pad, then dipped it into the silver EP and heated it. It's put on the front of the card with dimensionals. Fast and easy, and the color palette is all neutral. It's soothing, too.

Next card is one of my favorites, even though part of what makes it great is one of my least favorite colors! :D

Isn't it FRESH feeling? The background card is Pacific Point card stock, an IN COLOR this year. The mat is Old Olive, a color I truly don't care for - but it MAKES this card. :) The lemon slices are in Summer Sun, the apples in Ruby Red. The "celebrate" stamp is from CELEBRATE EVERYTHING, the fruit from TART & TANGY. That's the new eyelet border punch - it's REALLY a great accent!
The "celebrate" is stamped in white craft ink, then embossed with white embossing powder.
I'd love to know what you think of the cards! :) And to know what YOU are stamping.....
I mean, you ARE stamping, aren't you??? :D
Have a wonderful weekend!
