Today, I have 2 cards which came about as I tried out a SCS color challenge (coastal cabana, so saffron, tangerine tango)...I am still catching up on those! Both cards also work for a sketch challenge. The first card is for Freshly Made Sketches.
I decided to use SU's "By the Tide" to make my own patterned paper. I stamped all over half a sheet of whisper white. Fast, clean, and simple...makes it easy to make multiple cards. I had some gaps, so I actually added a bit of smoky slate ink. That is what led me to use smoky slate for the card base on this first card. The sentiment is from "Happiest Birthday Wishes." I still have lots of this striped tangerine ribbon, so it was great to have a reason to use some. My tag corner punch added a bit of detail, and I decided to put the tag on an angle. I sponged a bit of coastal cabana ink on the edges for some color contrast.
The next card uses the color scheme, plus a recent SCS sketch challenge found here. The so saffron piece is embossed with a Cuttlebug circles folder, then lightly sponged with coastal cabana. I used my sizzix circle die to cut out a piece of tangerine pattern paper. I used another sentiment from "Happiest Birthday Wishes," then punched it out with the large scallop circle. Striped tangerine ribbon, plus saffron candy dots finish it up.
I mentioned that I made half a sheet of my own pattern paper. That allowed me to make 2 each of these cards. Fantastic way to make several cards in one sitting!
Thanks for stopping by!
