Clearing Off The Work Space.

     Here are a couple of cards that have been laying on my desk.  They don't really have a home, but were mighty fun to create.


      My first card is a love card, which is always needed for OWH.  I started with a white base and layered on some awesome paper that was a gift from my DD.  She said it was Stampin Up!.  I cut a thin strip for the center, since it reverses to black.  My die cut is from MFT Stamps, called a Die-namics die.  It is their open scallop edge.  My stamp is from SU!'s set called Love Is A Great Thing.  I stamped it on white, sponged on Pool Party, and Cameo Coral inks, and then highlighted the letters with a Copic marker.  I hit the border with a Sakura Stardust pen, and then covered that with a glaze pen, so that the sparkle did not leech anywhere.


     Card two is a monochromatic card.  I used the cupcake set from Impression Obsessions stamped in Memento Pistachio ink. I cut my images with the Spellbinders Deckle Rectangles.  A punched a border with an MS punch called Bangle Chain Trim, was used.  I was also trying out an amazing border stamp I won as part of a blog candy package.  Thanks, Julie!  I think it is a Unity stamp, and I love it!

      Okay, that is 2 more that can be filed.  Thanks again for all the well wishes.  This is real slow going.  I am suppose to hear from the Dr.'s office as to my throat culture, today.  How exciting!  Have a great day.

I think both of these would have a great home at OWH. I was not that impressed with that SU stamp set but the way you showcased it, I think I've changed my mind. You made it really stand out as a focal point in the card. I love green so your second card just speaks to me. Thanks for sharing both. Enjoy your day.

They're both beautiful! The LOVE sentiment panel looks gorgeous the way you sponged and colored it, but you know my eyes went straight for that honeycomb/hexagon border with the text! How fabulous!!!
