Friday... must be Friends with Flair!

     Good morning, everyone!  Sorry I have been scarce with posting and commenting, but life is a little crazy right now.  We also celebrated a milestone birthday for my ever loving hubby, this week.  That was exciting!  We will celebrate both of ours with the children over Thanksgiving.  How did we ever get so old?  Hope all is well in your little piece of the world.

     This week, for Friends with Flair, I was able to create a couple of cards with the new November KOM, So Into You.  You are sure going to love this amazing kit!



     Card one is a CAS card that uses the gorgeous feather stamps in the kit.  I stamped them in SU! Old Olive, True Thyme, and Crumb Cake.  My arrow was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.  I created a scored frame, and added Crystal Effects to the feathers to add a little texture.  All were stamped on ivory Pure Luxury card stock, and then popped onto a olive, textured card stock base.


     Card two is a bit more elegant and uses the gorgeous flower and sentiment from the kit.  I stamped in Versafine, and clear embossed.  Coloring was done with Copic markers.  The flower was fussy cut, and popped  onto a heart paper doily.  My designer paper is from Wild Asparagus.  I added leaves from an SU! die that was gifted to me from a dear friend.  My sentiment was added and cut out with a Spellbinders die from Ribbon Tag Trio Two.


     That is it for me.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and a fabulous Thanksgiving!  That is mostly for my Unity friends whom I may not see again before next Friday.  Be sure to head over to the Unity Blog, and check out all the other links for inspiration!

Very nice cards, Mary Anne. I love those feathers and the simplicity of that card. Great guy card. Your second card is just as sweet as can be. I love the heart and your coloring is super nice on that flower. Happy Birthday to hubby and if you can figure out how we got this old, please let me know because I struggle with that question often. Have a fun weekend.

Having seen these cards IRL, I must say the photos don't do them justice! That gorgeous flower is colored to perfection, and I love how you decorated the inside of the card - something I rarely ever do!! Great job on both!

The feathers are really nice!

BloomingPink said...

Wow...even with your super busy schedule....3 super awesome cards! I feel lucky to get one done!

And Happy B-Day to your hubby. Did you make him a card with "It's sucks to get old" or one of the other silly stamps? That's how I cope with my aging system...humor!

I have a proposition for you....I'd like you to be a guest designer over on the 3GirJam blog...so if you're interested and have some time to put together a post for us in January, let me know! (you can email me at bekah1964 at yahoo dot com and I'll give you more info if you ARE interested) Cheers!

StampTramps said...

I have been thinking about signing up for the Unity kit club. Have you been getting the kits for a long time? Do you find that you can use a lot of the stamps? What are your thoughts in general and have a great long weekend! Sounds like you'll be busy!
