Cards We Did Last Week

From Adriel:

As promised, here are the cards we did at our last 5 for $5.

We did two of this card. This card used some of the new in-colors: Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss. We used the Wow Flowers set along with some of the in-colors inks. The stamped image on the white cardstock was punched out with a circle punch and dimensioned on the card.

This card we used a couple of the in-colors as well: Baja Breeze and Pink Pirouette, along with Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery. We used the new hostesss set, Window Dressing, which was perfect for the watercolor technique we used on this card.

This card was made using Sketch Challenge #79 on SCS and was based on this card, which used DS paper in the layout. I was looking for a way to use DS paper, so this layout and card were great to follow. The card we made used Whisper White CS, Certainly Celery CS, Tempting Turquoise CS, and retired DS paper (Flowers for You) from the old catalog. We used the Thoroughly Thankful set and used the Stampin' Write markers to color in the image in the varied colors.

The colors for this card were Mellow Moss, Barely Banana, Cameo Coral, and Chocolate Chip. We used three different sets for this card: Good Things Grow (retired), Sprinkles, and Fundamental Phrases. We used the Sprinkles set to versa mark the background. The saying is from Fundamental Phrases and the square image is from Good Things Grow, punched out with the 1-3/8" square punch. We used hemp thread to make the card a little more interesting.

Thanks for looking! Our next 5 for $5 is September 12, from 1-3pm. Let us know if you would like to join us! Have a wonderful day!
