SC 280

So I am at it again. ;) Here is the sketch:

Here is my first card:
I used the Color Spritzer tool and the Old Olive Marker for the background. I really like how it adds to the card! I think if I had to do it again I would make panel 3 a lighter color so it contrasted layer 2 better.

And here is the second version:
I am not sure how I feel about this one...what do you think?

SU Materials Used:Stamps: Embrace Life;
Paper:Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Cameo Coral, So Saffron, Whisper White;

Birthday Buddy

I am lucky enough to share my Birthday with one of my Brownies. She is also in Magdalena's class, so when I visited during lunch I made sure to give her a special birthday card. She loves Dogs as much as my kids, so I *knew* I needed to make her a doggie card. I have been looking at Magdalena's card for over a year now and this was the perfect time to use it as an example. I changed out the Night of Navy for the Elegant Eggplant and kept the rest pretty much the same.
And remember there are no mistakes in stamping...just opportunities. After stamping the cake, it didn't look right, so I re-stamped it on some Creamy Caramel and it looks much better!

SU Materials Used: Stamps:Bow Wow, Sweet Birthday (inside)
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red Regal Rose, Creamy Caramel
Ink: Basic Brown, Glorious Green, Creamy Caramel, Elegant Eggplant, Close to Cocoa

As always, Thanks for stopping by.

Girl Scout Thank You Part 1

For those of you who don't know, I am a Girl Scout leader and service unit Registrar (fancy way of saying I do paperwork. ;) ) Anyway, my troop bridged from Brownies to Juniors last week and to mark the occasion the girls made invites for their friends and family. My friend April (Hi April) has the SU Girl Scout set from long ago, and was kind enough to let us borrow it. Well, Long story -well Long at this point, She asked me to make a few GS themed cards for our Field Director since I still had the set. Well, my good friend, Cindy, posted a card box she made and was nice enough to show me how. So my Field Director, Emily got this wonderful box of cards as a Thank You from our Service Unit. I hope she likes them 1/2 as much as I do!

Here is the box. I used 1 sheet of 12 x 12 Girl Scout paper for the project.
And here is the first card...

I used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder on the base of them all. I am following this post with 2 more of the cards I put in the box. Don't worry they will be mostly visual posts. ;)
