Fun card day!

I actually had some time to make a couple of cards today. I'm nearly finished with the great room swap (family room and stamping room are completely swapping places), and have been up to my ears in piles of craft things. I'm down to the crazy-making piles - stuff I probably should never have bought that doesn't want to find a place to be. So I gave up and made cards instead.

My oval Nestabilities came last week after a very long wait due to the backorder situation. They were just begging to be used. Here's the result!


Details: stamps - Out on a Limb; paper - white, certainly celery, regal rose (Stampin' Up!); ink - regal rose, certainly celery, close to cocoa (SU!); accessories - oval Nestabilities, certainly celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

This next card is for a shoebox swap with my upline's group. It probably looks kind of familiar, since I posted one almost like it just the other day. Since this swap is all-SU, I had to make a different card using all SU materials. I'm digging the color combo!


Details: stamps - Friendly Flowers, Carte Postale; paper - Purely Pomegranate, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Bali Breeze designer paper; ink - Old Olive; accessories - 1 1/4", 1 3/8" circle punches, scallop circle punch, corner rounder punch, Ice rhinestone brad, dimensionals
