Last night was our group meeting and in addition to make and takes, demos, and sharing ideas, we always do a swap. This is the card I made:
My sister Darla brought the stamp set with when she came to stamp with me on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. I've actually had my cards done since then!
Stamp Set: Simply Sketched (hostess)
Colors: Crisp Canteloupe, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Ticket Duo Builder Punch, 5/8" Organza Ribbon, Pearls, Stampin' Sponge
Here's another version:
It's hard to see in the picture, but I paper pierced around the Early Espresso oval.
The flowers for both cards were stamped on Crisp Canteloupe and cut by hand. Sometimes I like fussy putzy stuff like that! For the shaded background, I made a template out of a piece of scrap paper that was a little smaller than the white piece and sponged with Sahara Sand ink.
The were CASE'd with slight changes from a card by Vicki B. on Stampin' Connection (Stampin' Up!'s website for demonstrators).
