I'd Rather Be Crafting ...

Hi Everyone! :0)

Saturday morning here - chores galore ... and I'd rather be crafting! Here are two more cards I squeezed in yesterday to play with the ladies at 2S4Y and The Play Date Cafe this week!

Here are The Play Date Cafe colours:


aren't they soooooooo pretty?

And here is Kazan's sketch



Oooooh - those scallops along the bottom - Mmmmmm! Where was I in life before my medium scallop die came along? LOVE that thing!


(Back to the challenges of photographing white cards ... as you can see :0)


My DP strip is a mix of Spring Moss Green and Ripe Avocado - the leaves are also stamped in Spring Moss ... despite their desire to look yellow in this pic, the truth must be told :0)

My second card is only for the PDCC - just a completely different take on the colours:


These flowers, mixed with the font in this sentiment, remind me of sagebrush ... or maybe dandelions, I don't know - YeeHaw!


I used a ribbon slot tool to keep the ribbon treatment interesting ... and added the rhinestones for some shimmer - a bit like the light on the drinking glasses in the original pic.

So there it is! I will put in a complete list of materials later - time permitting ...

Off to do some vacuuming and laundry ...

Don't you pity envy me :0)!?

Have a fabulous day!

These are both SO lovely! You've used the colors so well on both, but the first one in particular is so cool and refreshing. There's just something about embossed white-on-white that makes my little heart pitter-patter!

Both beautiful cards! I love the crispness of the white of the first one, and the strong colours of the second. Really gorgeous! Thanks for joining us this week at the PDCC!

Both are fabulous--wonderful colors that work like a tonic on these August days! Love all the white and the fresh, clear look on the first and the bold, rich effect on the second. Glad you are enjoying your new set--you're really coming up with some fantastic creations!

WOW - those are some beautiful cards! From the amount of comments you have, I see that I am not the only one that feels that way! Gorgeous!

Both of these cards are stunning! Love the white on white of the first one and the overstamping technique you used again with these flowers! I said this on another one of your posts....I've got to CASE this idea!
