This morning I have had lots of time to stamp and play. The Inauguration is on the TV, and I am proud to live in the land of the free.
My first card is for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #136. I have not gotten to play lately, and I sure missed my mousies! This time, the challenge is to create with "New Beginnings" in mind. I used the HM stamp called Amanda Writes. Since I will slip this card into my OWH box, I thought about a soldier writing home with something exciting, like being discharged, a promotion, or transfer.
Here is what was used:
Beige card stock, Latte designer paper from DCWV, Bazzill embossed dots in purple
Inks are Copic Markers, and Memento Rich Cocoa
My script stamp is from Stamp Camp
The embellishments are stitched ribbon from Gina K., a Fanciful Flourish from Cheery Lynn
SU! punches were used for my sentiment, as were purple gems to balance out the piece.
Card #2 is for this weeks challenge at Joan's Gardens.
We are asked to use a tent fold
Use the colors aqua, purple, and light green
Use something from nature
Well, flowers were my inspiration, and I wanted to use a new Blossom punch I received from Santa. I punched it from Bo Bunny Double Dot Designs, and lined it with Basic Grey Plumeria. The center is an MS and SU! punch layered and secured with an eyelet. I used scraps from my first card to add my purple. My sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps, and my small flowers were with an A Muse stamp. My embellishments are green eyelets, aqua twine, and green pearls.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope your Monday is going well!
