Sunday Afternoon

Hello all! How's your Sunday going? I've been busy in my scrap room making a couple of cards and even worked on a layout. I get so caught up in making cards for various challenges that I tend to forget what actually got me started in paper crafting! I'm so far behind in my scrapping that I tend to just pick out a picture and go for it, no scrapping in order here!! lol So here are two of the cards I made. The first one is for a  the Sunny Days challenge at My Craft Spot. I've been wanting to use this stamp set for awhile and thought it was perfect! I used Recollection Cardstock and a scrap piece of pattern paper from DCWV. The clouds are from a background stamp from Pink by Design. the rest of the stamps, including the sentiment are from Penny Black. I used my Stampin' Up color pencils to color in all the stamps, and of course used my white Gelly Roll pen for the faux stitching.

The second card is for the color theme of orange, green, and white challenge at Birthday Sundaes. I used Recollection cardstock again and the pattern paper is from DCWV. I then dry embossed the white mat with my Cuttlebug and used Colorbox Cat's eye chalk inks to color it. I used my Nestabilities for the sentiment tag, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up, as is the ink I used for it. The gems are from Michael's and so is the ribbon, and of course, my white Gelly Roll pen for the stitching.

Well hope you like the cards and that you had a good weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
