Three for the Price of One!

Well, I haven’t uploaded a card for a few days, so I guess I’ll just go with what I’ve got! Last night I was going to stamp all evening, but it took me over two hours to clean up my stamping area so that I had room to create! Plus, I got distracted with other things.

At any rate, I have three cards to share with you today, but I’m not terribly impressed with any of them. I was making use of some of my “card parts.” Does anyone else have them – pieces laying around that you were “testing,” or making extras, or scraps? I have so many of them!

The birthday card was made with the following “pieces:” the sentiment was already embossed with Versamark and sponged with Almost Amethyst, the diagonal piece was a scrap, and the flowers were punched and had pearls on. I just rounded the corners on the pieces, matted the sentiment, stamped the background, and put it all together.

The fish card: the background was already scored, the scalloped oval piece was already cut, and the quilling pieces were left over from my other fish card. I just stamped the sentiment, cut it out, and put it all together.

The anniversary card: the daisies were already embossed on the white and the copper, and the copper was already mounted on the black. I matted them, stamped and embossed the sentiment, and stamped and embossed the scrolly design on the top. There - emphasis on quantity today! LOL!

I got my new In Colors from Stampin’ Up! yesterday and I’m hoping to maybe get something stamped with them tonight.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

Hi Lynette-

I love the third card. Clean and simple - but I love the layered embossing.
