Two for Tuesday...

If you live in the Northeast, like me, you know that the sun has not made an appearance for several days now! It is starting to get to me!!! The rain has finally let up for the most part although the kids were out playing in it earlier (it wasn't raining when they went out...) and now I'm finding trails of tissues everywhere and one yelling at the other to stop sneezing on them...great! I was able to escape for a little while to my workshop and make these two cards...the color challenge on SCS was today...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=241119
I chose the first part of the combo challenge and chose the cards with "blue" in them...feeling it would be appropriate!

Card #1 uses the DRS Designs large plaid stamp...stamp vertically repeatedly and then I used my diamond card edge for...the diamonds! This card was inspired by one made by Tayloredexpressions over on SCS...I believe the top of her card was left blank, but I just HAD to put something up there!

I used my cuttlebug scallops and layered them...since I stamped Thank you over to the right more than I wanted to, I added some jewels...and then I added some more! The ribbon in the center of the card is black velvet...ooohhh....I love that ribbon!! I have a mini scallop punch that I used to make my ticket corners on the bottom. The entire card front is popped as well as the focal point.

Card #2 has a new DRS stamp as a focal point...isn't this bird pretty? I thought the colors and image would do well on a sympathy card...hence the peace sentiment...I stamped the sentiment with white stazon...the focal point is popped and the bird is covered in dazzling diamonds.

I made my own photo corner from a scrap of my patterned paper. I found this paper on clearance at Target a while back..it is flocked...I also have some in a certainly celeryish color...and some in brown! They have a new line of flocked papers out now...I think that is where I found the brown (in the new line, not the clearanced) but I haven't splurged on any of the others yet...although they did look rather interesting! The general idea for this card was inspired by genie1314 on SCS! I believe it was a fan club card...if you don't already subscribe to the SCS fan club - you should! Believe me, it is well worth the small amount of money! Those design members are amazing...talk about a dream come true if you are a lucky "chosen one"! Wow!

See you soon...

*gasp* I just LOVE these 2 cards!! I have the dove from the old retired SU! set "Peace" but it has a Christmasy fig in it's mouth...maybe I could ink the dove without that and use as a sympathy...I never thought of that! Also, I JUST got my CB scalloped square dies in the mail yesterday, so it's great to see an idea right off the bat. :) I LOVE your diamonds in the first card and the Dazzling Diamonds on the dove. AWESOME girlie!! :)
