Love Cards with Unconventional Colors

It has been a productive, crafty week.  I made a big batch of these Love/Valentine cards for OWH following a challenge of using unconventional valentine colors and think the golden yellow/olive look so pretty.

Punch Pourri Card

The background is embossed with Devine Swirls in white.  The stamps are from Stampin Up’s Punch Pourri set and coordinate with the Boho Blossoms, Heart, and Bird punches.  The olive strip is embossed with SU’s Square Lattice folder, and the yellow edge is punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch.

Next I am working on some traditional-looking Love/Valentine cards with Cricit cutouts.  Hopefully I will finish those in a few days – so many ideas, so little time!

Elegant Hearts Wedding Card

This wedding card is clean, simple, and elegant. A variety of white- and cream-colored hearts were cut in various sizes with Cricut George. Hearts were then dry embossed with Devine Swirls, Square Lattice, and Plaid Pattern embossing folders. The top of the card was embossed with tiny hearts. Mr. & Mrs. Stamped is a Doodlebug stamp from the “You Said It” set. TGIF – Have a great weekend!

Stinking of You

I love this little skunk.  It has such an innocent smile and offers a bright yellow flower.  I made it and the stump upon which it sits with the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge.

The “scentiment” is from Hambo Stamps – I love their humorous approach to stamping.  I purchased a handful of these punny-type stamps from Hambo recently and can’t wait to use each one.  I made the little guy in size 2-1/2 inches with a black shadow, and the tree stump is 1-1/2 inches.  The sky background is embossed with Stampin’ Up’s Cloudy Day embossing folder, and the grass is made with Stampin Up’s Square Lattice embossing folder.  I used small snippets of blue, pink, and red for the facial features and sandwiched them between the dark gray and white layer.

I have been busy making bridal shower, wedding, and graduation cards this week.  We will be attending a wedding this weekend of a young lady we have known since she was born.  We are so very happy for her and are looking forward to helping them celebrate.  Have a great weekend!
