Lots of Cards Today!!!

I had a good stamping day today and pretty much stamped all day! The house was clean, the laundry was done... so lots of time to stamp!!!

First, I created this card for today's sketch challenge on SCS. I'm really not ready for fall yet, but I started looking at my newest stamps and which ones haven't seen ink yet. That's how I settled on using "Autumn Days". Plus, I wanted to get used to SU's newest in-colors.

Here's my card...

RECIPE:
Stamps: Autumn Days, Everyday Flexible Phrases, Canvas BG, Weathered BG
Paper: Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla
Ink: Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry
Accessories: Linen thread, Cuttlebug Tiny Tags, Hodgepodge Hardware, Deckled Rectangles Nestabilities, dimensionals
Techinque: sponging and masking

I did a lot of sponging on this card. Every panel was sponged to give it depth.


Next, I needed a thank you card to send to my parents. They bought my hubby and I a set of plastic margarita glasses to use on our deck and boat as an anniversary gift. Here's the card I created using the same sketch...


RECIPE:
Stamps: Cheers to You
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, White, Razzleberry Lemonade DP
Ink: Momento Black
Accessories: markers (SU and Copic), Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon, Prima flowers, rhinestone stickers, stickles

I put glittery stickles on the rim of the glasses to make it look like sugared or salted rims. They cherry is also a gemstone sticker.

Finally, today is my 3rd anniversary. I always struggle with making cards for my husband, so I was surfing SCS and came across THIS CARD. I knew I had to recreate it, especially since my hubby is not that romantic and most of his cards end up going this route anyways!

Here's my card...


RECIPE:
Stamps: All in the Family, sentiment from Verve stamps
Paper: Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Chocolate Chip, White
Ink: Momento Black
Accessories: markers, word window punch, modern label punch, cuttlebug embossing folder, dimensionals

Tee hee!!!! Isn't it funny!?!? I'm sure he'll get a kick out of it!

That's all for today! I'm heading out to dinner to celebrate or anniversary soon. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!! :)
