Welcome to another addition to our fun blog. This week we have some ideas that we hope you will be able to use. Our inspiration came from the fun design over at this week’s Mojo Monday site. Be sure to check there for all of this week’s submissions. Here is the sketch we used:
Karen’s card gets things started this week with sweet embossing on some fun paper. Her soft greys along with traditional fall colors make her card very fresh and modern. A host of embossing folders including Stampin’ Up’s Festive, and Cuttlebug’s swirls & dots, a bit of raffia and an oval punch create a fun textured pumpkin. I love the gingham background from Recollection’s Black Tweed as it makes the card so cheerful.
Next up is my card with my new best friend from Penny Black. The stamp is called Lamb with Mistletoe. Is he too cute or what? He is stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with an aqua painter using Real Red and Wisteria Wonder inks. My DSP is from Stampin’ Up’s current holiday collection. I used a stitched scalloped circle frame and a stitched circle die from My Favorite Things as well as a SU pennant stamp and punch for my embelishment. A bit of 1/8″ dotted ribbon finishes this card off just right.
Finally this week is Robyn’s elegant card. Her use of copper embelishments with Craft Smith paper is truly beautiful. The center cutout from Itricut and copper embossed sentiment brings the whole card together in great style.
Isn’t it amazing how one design can have so many looks? We had a good time with our cards and thank you for your visit. We hope you will come back again for more creative cardmaking ideas.
