2 Cards, 1 Layout!

Hi All!

Well, we're having another very hot day here and it's pretty much kept us inside. I think we're all getting a bit stir crazy, hopefully the heat and humidity will break soon. Anyway, I used some of my time to create a couple of cards.

I've seen a great layout used on a few blogs recently, one that I believe is from SCS. So, I had to give it a try.

This first card uses Crab and Company from Stampin' Up!. I ran some cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the Swirl embossing folder. It reminds me of waves, perfect for a beachy card. The colors are Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, and Sahara Sand. The image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with markers and an aquapainter. The brads are sea shells, not sure where they are from though.

This next card uses the same layout, but the color combo is from a color challenge on SCS. The colors are Groovy Guava, Barely Banana, and Close to Cocoa, a great combo for a baby card! This card uses the Swiss Dots embossing folder and some flower brads from Target. The images are from the set Bundled in Love from Stampin' Up!. The images are colored with a blender pen and ink.

Thanks for looking. Hope you're having a great Wednesday! Happy Stamping! :)
