Two Cards Today

Good Morning!

Hope today is off to a good start. I'm heading out to my daughter's ballet class in a bit and then we are having a play date with friends. Should be a fun day!

I have two cards to share with you today, both for design team work. First, is my card for Paper Maniac. This week our focus was on creations using patterned paper. Paper Maniac carries a great assortment of different companies and styles of patterned paper. My card uses some from the Paper Loft in a holiday pattern and color which I paired with matching Bazzill cardstock.

I chose to work with my Whimsy Snowman and Bunny image as Paper Maniac is also a retailer of Whimsy Stamps. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copics and highlighted with a Spica glitter pen, although it's hard to see the glitter. I've embellished with a Prima Flower, some ribbon, and a snowflake charm.

Next is my card for my guest design spot with Whiff of Joy challenges. Today we have a great sketch from Heather. There are many great layers to add to this one and places for fun embellishments too.

I used some K and Company papers and distressed all the edges. I also added some sponging and torn edges. I wanted this card to look shabby to fit the challenge at Everybody Art.

I've used this sweet kneeling Willow image that I received from a friend. She has been colored with Copics and highlighted with a gel pen and Spica glitter pen. I've done some paper piercing around the image and then added some brads. I've embellished with hodgepodge hardware, felt flowers, Prima flowers, a button, hemp twine, lace, and organdy ribbon.

Thanks for dropping over today. I hope to have some time later to drop by and visit all of you. Have a great day. Happy stamping! :)
