Weekend Quick Card – Jun 12th

 

SONY DSC

Hello everyone,

I hope your weekend is wonderful so far…I went to my husband’s family reunion today and had a wonderful visit. It’s great to catch up the family members at least once a year…I wish my family could do with my family once a year like that…I just need time and money at the same time, lol.

 

Anyway, my weekend was little busy so I decided to try some challenges with quickie cards :)

The first card (on top) is used the color combo from The Color Throwdown (CTD96) and combined with CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge 7 (CWC007) – Create a CAS card using button.

The stamps are Kit of the Month from Unity Stamp Company (don’t know which month…but it’s one of my favorite KOM sets!) and I colored the flowers with Copic markers. I simply attached the yellow & blue small buttons.

 

Stamps: KOM set (Unity Stamp Co. 
Paper: classic white (Flourishes), cool caribbean, pumpkin pie (SU)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black (Tsukineko) Copic markers 
Accessories: buttons 
Tools: label 1 Nestablities, border punch, Scor-Pal

The next card was used the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping (FTL93) and the color combination from Curtain Call Color Challenge (ACT33) . The both challenges were last week’s challenge and I’m a kind of catching up, lol.

The stamps are from all Stampin’ Up! I used the corner punches for the blue mat and the border punch for the sentiment strip. To complete the card, I embellished with pearls.

 

Stamps: Watercolor Trio, Kindred Sprit (SU) 
Paper: classic white (Flourishes), bashful blue, certainly celery (SU)
Ink: bashful blue, certainly celery, night of navy (SU) 
Accessories: pearls 
Tools: label 8 Nestablities, border punch, corner punch
 

 

 

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great rest of your weekend!

ひゃあ~。どちらも素敵なんですが、1枚目のカードにノックアウトされました。カードベースの色がすごく効果的ですよね。表から見える分量はホントに少しですが、これがあるとないとでは大違い!勉強になりました。
