Weekly Wrap Up...Three Cards for Fun



Good morning and happy Saturday.  I hope everyone has fun weekend plans.  I finally have a day without DT scheduled posts, and so I am taking advantage of the break to post a few cards I have made just for fun (gasp!) over the course of this week.

First up is a card I made for Addicted to CAS #74 Sparkle Challenge.  I used Avery Elle Beautiful Bows and some sparkly gold ink for my card--I was going for the stacked gift look.





Next up is a card I made inspired by one of the cards posted by Dawn during the PTI release festivities this week.  Dawn's card used a new stamp set that seemed pretty similar to a set I bought last year from PTI called Fair Isle Motifs.  I used a single image from the set, and put my Misti to work getting everything (mostly) lined up and stamped across the entire card front.  I used Peaceful Pinecones in place of the greenery Dawn used.  I am entering this card at Create Along With Us.

Dawn's Card



I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #166:  Anything Goes.




Last up--a card with Copic Coloring featuring my newest Serendipity stamp--this fantastic sentiment which I have wanted forever.  The challenge at Serendipity Stamps  SSCB#48: What's New was the perfect challenge to get me to put some ink on this new stamp.



I am also entering this card at Virginia's View #19:  All Things Colored, The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge and Marker Pop #79:  Anything Goes.






Thanks for Visiting

  1. Isn't it fab to make cards just because! And these are a delight. I have been trying to get hold of that bow stamp here but it is sold out all the time. I think the way you have used it is inspired and so very creative, love, love it...have no stitiched dies though but would love to CASE this in my own way..is that o.k?

  2. These are great Joyce! I always find it so liberating making cards just for fun! Although I also like the challenges for focus too, but there is something about the organic feel of a card emerging that you never even knew was coming yourself until it is finished! Have a lovely weekend! Hazel xx

  20. I came to welcome your beautiful and well stamped, I might add, pinecone card to the ATSM gallery this week, Joyce. But then I saw the other cards and was floored by two more wonderful creations. The bow on the stack is gorgeous and perfectly stamped and who doesn't love that sentiment on the third. It is indeed a wonderful world. Thanks for playing cards with us at ATSM this week.

  28. Great cards Joyce. The wrap it up bow on all those layers is so cool looking.. and I think you are turning into a Copic junkie. Never would have predicted that in a billion years.. but you have to know I AM LOVING IT!! The color is beautiful and brings life to the flowers!
