Today I have 3 cards for one recent color challenge over at SCS, asking us to use Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie. The "dessert" option was to add a fourth color. I added Pear Pizzazz for my 3rd card...so much of it, in fact, that it looks like one of the primary challenge colors!
Any way, I made 2 cards without pear pizzazz; both very Clean & Simple. I intended to use some presto pattern paper, brayering on the colors. I am certain I have another pack of that stuff, but I could not find it. So instead, I took some SU glossy white card stock and ran it through my Big Shot with the chevron folder. I then brayered the three colors in an ombre pattern. Sadly, a bit of ink found its way into the recessed areas...I may need to practice more! Both cards have a strip of pumpkin pie taffeta ribbon. The Get Well stamp is from Stampabilities, and I added some candy dots. The star on the other card was in my stash; I had embossed it for another project, but it was too big. Nice to find it in my drawer of punched and die cut items! The sentiment s from SU's "Perfect Words," punched with the modern label and embellished with candy dots.
There is NO dry embossing on this card. It feels so flat! LOL
I just read up on Operation Write Home. I have heard about it, but not in any detail. It looks like such a wonderful cause, so I hope to send a box of cards by October 15th. I may CASE some of my own cards to send along the way!
