Finishing up some cards

Since our clubs are on "break" right now, I thought I'd take the opportunity to finish up some old projects that have been sitting around for a while. Although they all use old papers and many retired colors, the designs and ideas are still very relevant.

First up is a criss cross card that uses Silhouette paper along with the Only Live Once stamp set and a ribbon from the Black Ribbon Rounds. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Happy Birthday stamp set and the little posy is from the Summer Posies Just Blooms tube.

This next card is one that I designed for a consultant create day at least two years ago. It uses a favorite stamp set of mine, Blooming Flourishes. I colored in the flowers with a waterbrush and Vineyard Berry, Orchid Bouquet (now retired), and Sweet Leaf inks. I used textured White Daisy paper and edged it with Orchid Bouquet so the texture is obvious.

These cards are a simple favorite CASE'd from a favorite artist of mine, Lisa Stenz. It uses the With Love stamp set on Kiwi (now retired), Carnation (now retired), and Crystal Blue cardstock. The vase and the large flower were stamped on white and cut out to add a bit of white to the card.

Finally, this blurry card is one that I designed for a swap about two years ago. It uses paper from the Life Delights Level 2 paper packet along with stamps from the Celebrate Life and Say it With Style stamp sets. The butterfly is stamped on vellum so you can see the paper underneath.

Believe it or not, I ended up cleaning out a whole bin and putting together almost 40 cards that are now done and ready to use or sell. Boy, oh, boy . . .that feels AWESOME!
