Some Oldies, but Goodies for You!!!

Just a quick post of some cards I've completed recently and haven't shared. Then off to work for me this afternoon!!!

This card was created for Color Challenge 152: Real Red, Ballet Blue and Apricot Appeal. I have used Apricot Appeal and Real Red together, but not with Ballet Blue. Honestly, Ballet Blue is a color I do not use very often! This was a valentine I sent to a special friend.

I started with my Ballet Blue large panel already stamped with Tres Chic in the same ink. The edges were distressed with my distressor tool as was the smaller Apricot Appeal panel. The rest of the layers are pretty simple to follow in the picture, but the ribbon treatment is what I really like!

I used the new Boho Blossoms punch for the flowers, punched a hole in the center, knotted a strip of White taffeta and threaded it through the hole. The hole I punched was little big so I had to play with it some to keep the knot from pulling through! I put a small piece of SNAIL on the ends and stuck 'em down! I really like how the ends frames the image panel.

This card was made for Featured Stamper challenge #53: Sarah Green. She has an amazing gallery and I just loved the three panel card she made. You view it here: Thank You Mom

My changes to the card are:

*Colors, stamps, and holidays!!

*I placed my sentiment on a separate piece of cardstock

*I used one less layer on image panels

*I only used two ribbons on each tie on

I kept her same layout and number of layers on the other parts.

My last creation for you today are pictures of nametags I am making for an upcoming get together happening in Frankenmuth/Birch Run, MI on March 7 & 8th!!!!!! A group of SCS MI gals are meeting for a fun-filled weekend of stamping, eating and having an all around fun time!!!! I have 56 nametags to make and not many started!!!!

My goal was to make them easy, quick and simple to make, but not boring!! I think I succeed! What do you think? The names will be printed off the computer and then trimmed to fit the tag. The finished size of the nametags is 3 x 4.

I'm using up my large stash of retired Petals & Paisley's dsp and the flowers are from So Many Scallops SAB set and the Boho Blossoms punch. On the back will be a pin to attach them with. Each nametag will be slightly different so we a variety for everyone!!!

That's all for today!!!

Happy Stamping!!!
