2 more cards

Two similar cards using Stampin'Up hostess set "Wings of Friendship" stamped with Bermuda Bay Ink, and Bermuda Bay and Dusty Durango cardstock. I just love these new colours. I also used a corner punch with butterflies. I like to pull out punches, or scissors that I haven't used in awhile. I also like the use of eyelets. They are not as easy to use as brads but I think they are worth the trouble.

another version

Here is another version using the same pear stamp. This is a very old stamp by Anita's Stamps. I like to pull out older stamps and do something with them now and then before I decide to get rid of them. Everyone can use a pear stamp. The cardstock and printed paper is by Stampin'Up.

Fruit Card for today

I love the way these pears turned out. I stamped in basic black on Whisper White cardstock, then coloured them with SU watercolour crayons. These crayons blend so well. I stamped several images and coloured them, then I cut out different leaves and the center pear and used a pop up to layer them. I masked the pears and stamped a script image using SU new colour Dusty Durango. It was then layered on Dusty Durango cardstock. I also used some Crystal Effects on some of the leaves and the stock. It's a simple but classy I think!

August renderings

I had fun doing this card this afternoon. It's been a few days since my last card creation. I bounce between mixed media and card making. This card is made with Stampin'Up cardstock, paper, ribbon and stamps. I hope you enjoy this bright card. The colours kind of lift your spirits. The bling on the rhinstone brads gives it a pop.
