Cards for the Day

Here are a couple more cards, the sunflower one is for the technique challenge. It was to make a card that looks like tile. So I got out my grid template, sponged on marigold ink, stamped on sunflowers, embossed with UTEE and there you have it! It looks just like tile in person. I was having trouble sponging the ink on evenly so I gave up trying to get it even and I think it looks even better like this.

The next card is another stamp I got from Artist Oasis. I CASEd a card from stampinkub- unbelievable cards this young man makes! I used eggplant and celery again, just a nice combo.

The last one is for the featured stamper challenge, the card I cased from her was horizontal and she used a butterfly. I just loved how soft the color combo was and the white edging is something I had never done before! Gives it a reverse distressed look (don't know how to explain that one!).

Hopefully later tonight I will have time to do the card for the color challenge. I will be busy this afternoon and evening with my little one's first swim meet! It is an 'away' meet. The store got his team suit in today, just in time. We drove up there to get it so he will have it for the meet. So exciting, I think I am as excited as he is! I will be sure to bring my camera.

I love them too...how could I not? Awesome Missy! You are just a card-creating machine this year...woo hoo you! Love the tile effect...love the simple style of the second one with the colours you chose and love the reverse distressed look with the gingham and twine...so no, I can't pick a favourite! : ) Keep 'em coming!

I just love the second one for some reason, it is so simple but elegant to me. Funny huh? With all the involved cards I do! I have an exciting one to share tomorrow if I get time to upload the pictures. Thanks!
