FwF, with and OWH Mid-Week Throwdown Combo

     Happy Friday morning, friends!  I am ever so glad to see this week end.  Friday is Friends with Flair day at Unity, and this week I have 3 cards that accumulated on my desk, that I would like to share.  My first is also for the OWH Mid-Week Throwdown.  The challenge is to create a card which is sentiment free.


     It uses a gorgeous stamp from the June 2012 KOM, which I stamped in Versafine, and clear embossed.  I was colored with Copic Markers, and cut out with a new Spellbinders Die called Decorative Labels Eight.  Santa brought those new dies, and I just love them!  My layers include grey card stock, white embossed with an SU! folder, Memory Box dp, and my image.  Everything is sponged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, and grey pearls were added.


     My second card was made for a girlfriend who loves bling.  The stamps are from the December 2011 KOM. I used In The Navy card stock, and stamped my images with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  The photo does not show it, but the tiny hearts are all colored with a Sakura Clear Stardust pen, and the tiny flowers are glazed with Glossy Accents.


     Card three is just playing with some of the girlie stamps from the December KOM 2012.  This has lots of glittery sparkle, which I don't get to use now that most of my cards go to Operation Write Home. Only the top card will go in my OWH box, this time. Amazing what you can do with a black ink pad and a couple scraps of paper!

     Have a wonderful weekend, and I will be sure to check out the other entries by Sunday!  Thanks for visiting!

Decorative labels eight, huh? I'm going to need to do some shopping. I think your bling loving friend will be really happy with card #2. And I can't tell you how happy I am that you send most of your cards to OWH. I took a vacation day from work today and actually used the SU Pick A Petal set to make flower cards instead of noses! Imagine that!

Jennie said...

Beautiful card Mary Anne! You have been busy :)

Pryn said...

All 3 of these cards are BEYOND fabulous!!! I love how each one is different. You really know how to rock the card making!!!
