Today's card was made with the SU stamp set Ornate Ornaments. Last week I made a Christmas card with this set. Today I used Raspberry Lemonade paper with Rich Razzleberry. I spritzed the stamp with water after I inked it up to give it a more watercolr lighter look. The frame behind the circle was made using a Martha Stewart corner punch. Check out my challenge Here and join me!

Today's card was made using the SU Stamp set Art of Life and the sentiment is by Stampabilities. I stamped the background with the SU Script background stamp in Sahara Sand on Crumb Cake cardstock. Then I used Sahara Sand and Crumb cake for the leaf stamp. I used the Pacific Point ink pad and the Close to Cocoa marker for the flower stamp. I really need to update my SU marker collection with some of the new colors. Patterned paper is by MME. The paper wasn't quite the right color so I lightly sponged it with SU ink. Cardstock is Chocolate Chip. I added a butterfly made with the Martha Stewart butterfly punch and embellished it with rhinestones. The border punch is also by Martha Stewart.

Today's card was made with Ornate Ornaments. I used SU markers directly on the stamps and added Bakers twine and pearls. Cardstock is Crumb Cake (my fav) and Real Red. Not sure who makes the dp. Die cuts are made with Spellbinders Labels 17 and MFT Wonky Border. Sentiment is computer generated.

Today's card was made with the set Elegant Greetings by Stampin Up. The tag is computer-generated. The paper is by Webster's Pages. I love this paper. I have bought quite a bit of it and then I don't want to use it because it is so beautiful. Now I finally cut a piece! I added vintage buttons, pearls, jute cord, and died the lace (once white) with Distressed Stain. The little flower on the top button is a piece of trim glued on with my ATG adhesive.

Today I used the SU Snowflake set again. This is a set of five cards in a matching folder. It would be great for thank you notes after Christmas! I used black and white paper stamped with snowflakes and a little strip of dotted black paper. I used Nesties Squares and Labels 1 and added a rhinestone for sparkle.

Today's card was made using the set by SU called For the Love of Chocolate. This was a set I had to have but it turned out to not really be good for my style of coloring with Copic markers since it is already so shaded. I am learning a lot by doing this challenge. Sets I thought I would rarely use are becoming favorites and vice versa. The sentiment stamp is from Michael's dollar stamps.

Yesterday's post was late so today I am posting twice. Today's card was made using the set Fruit Stand. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and the word window and modern label punched for the sentiment. I colored the image with Copic markers and sponged it with Crumb Cake ink. Paper is Elegant Eggplant, Crumb cake and K and Co patterned paper.
Today's card was made with the SU set Groovy. I used the SU markers on the car image. Paper is Ballet Blue and the new In Color Summer Starfruit. The starfruit color reminds me of the 60s so I thought it would be perfect for this card.

Today I used Friendships Journey and the Ephemera background stamp to make this set of cards. Added some ribbon and pearls for embellishment. Black is hard to match so sometimes the easiest way to get matching black paper is to make your own like I did with the Ephemera stamp.

I can't believe how much my card collection has grown over the last month or so just by trying to use every set in my collection. I have put some sets in the sell pile - a lot more than I thought I would. And I have used sets I thought I liked but turned out to love the cards made with them. I hope some people will join me in my challenge. Please post a pic or email me if you are joining in on the fun!
Today's card was made with Babies and Brides. I colored the image with Copic markers and added a Scripture for the sentiment.
