Two Sketches - Two Cards

I focused on non-holiday cards and played along with two sketches.  The first one was a sketch from My Favorite Things.  Here is the sketch . . .

And here is my card . . .

For this one I used pattern papers in my stash.   The stamp set used here is Amazing which is new from My Favorite Things.  I stamped in Versamark and used Ranger White Embossing powder for the "Amazing" and used Close To My Heart inks for the smaller sentiment pieces, which I masked so the words would be separate. 

I used a Pico Embellisher (Wedding Dress) which I splattered on with a paint brush.  I like it, but I'm also on the fence about it.  I also used some "drops" from Queen & Company. 

My second card was for the Pals Paper Arts challenge.  Loved this sketch and was intrigued to use some Simon Says Stamp kit supplies from the November Kit.  I was a little bummed that I was short on Thanksgiving cards this year, so I'm one card ahead for 2016 (just hope I store it well and can find it come November).

Here is the sketch . . .


And here is my card . . .

I let the paper do most of the talking on this one.  For the sentiment, I used gold embossing powder.  Love the effect of the gold on the orange cardstock.  

I hope you find some time to create!

  1. Beautiful gold embossing that looks fantastic on the designer paper. The three rows of "thanks" are sweet behind the embossed piece. Thanks for joining us at the Pals Paper Arts this week!

  2. Your PPA card is so cool! I love the strips with words! Super classy!

  3. I liked you use of gold with the orange leaf. Was that orange an SU color?
