A Trio of Cards



Happy Monday.  I've got 3 cards to share today, so I will just get right to it.  First up is my favorite of the bunch.


I pulled out some flower stamps that have not seen ink in a while and did one of my favorite things--just stamped an entire card front in a sort of random pattern.  I used the colors from Color Throwdown #334, and the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch #261.  That pink ink--Little Piggy from WPlus9, is NBUS, so I am entering this card at Darnell's latest NBUS challenge.  By the way, this is now my new favorite pink ink color.  I ran the entire top panel of my card through with the Hexagon Cover plate used as an impression plate just for a little quilted texture.





My next card is my 2nd entry this week using the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #115.  I used SU Stippled Blossoms and watercolored the blooms a little bit.  That crooked border is hand drawn, and I meant it to be crooked (LOL).


I am also entering this card at AAA Cards #35:  Bare naked CAS.





Last for today is a card shaped like a giant cupcake--inspired by the photo at The Card Concept #31. I think this might go in the Clean and Layered category.  I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps, where the theme is Anything Goes and Seize the Birthday, without toppings.






That's it for me today.  Come back tomorrow for a new CASology challenge.


Thanks for Visiting

  32. Oh, mmfphf, sorry, Joyce, you caught me with my mouth full of cupcake! I hope you weren't planning to send that delicious card to anyone!!

    Your CTS card with it's stunning blossoms and really cool doodled frame is a winner in my eyes!!

    And, finally, I think your favorite first card is a favorite to me, too. You did a professional job making your own beautiful paper and it was an inspiration on your part to then run it through your hexagon plate! Mwah!!

    Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #4!! Hugs, Darnell
