What do I have today? Well, I have another deceptively easy card;) There has got to be a way to make this cards that’s simple, although I tried Stampin’ Up! markers, I wasn’t thrilled with the colors….I’m getting carried away…
Ok, I made a card! 🙂 I’m very pleased that I’ve made three cards this week! 🙂 My card is for the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches #190. Here’s their sketch:
So, I can see you’re thinking, how could this possibly be not simple? As I started to tell you, I tried using my markers, but the orange just wasn’t bright enough:( I tried different ways to use ink pads for both the black and orange with varying degrees of success:( Finally, as I was falling asleep in my chair, I decided to ink the black part and cover what should be orange with tape. I stamped the image in black and then stamped the orange pumpkin on a separate piece of card with the halloween from Stampin’ Up!s Teeny Tiny Wishes. I also covered the happy with tape. The cat is part of a set from Stampin’ Up! called Tricky Treats (retired). I then cut the banner with Bitty Banners, Framelits.
I used Memento Black for the cat image and halloween. For the pumpkin, I used Stampin’ Up! Tangerine Tango. The orange paper just came from my Halloween stash of papers. The green behind it is Stampin’ Up! Old Olive. I used the Stampin’ Up! Extra Large Oval punch for the cat, and behind the cat I used the Decorative Label punch. Yep, it looks simple, and I’m sure for some people it would be a piece of cake! I think I should make cards during the day when I’m awake! 😉 Anyway…one more card to put in a box for Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂
Now on to my guest! 🙂 This guest has been featured before, Diane Herniman, from Canada:) Diane doesn’t send many cards at a time, but they’re always awesome! 🙂 They all go straight to SAS4Kids! 🙂 Diane uses lots of personal photos of animals and plants from her home and yard:) Here are some of Diane’s cards that she has sent over the last couple of months! 🙂
Here is the inside and the back! 🙂 I think Diane has a style all her own! 🙂 I couldn’t copy her cards if I tried! I’ve held her cards in my hand, taken lots of photos, I still don’t believe I could make cards like hers!
The inside, with what I’m sure is another photo from her garden, and an envelope:)
Another “regular card” and the inside:) Diane’s cards just make me happy! 🙂 I can imagine her going to her garden and taking photos to share with our kids and their families:)
One more! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the cards today! 🙂 Thanks for coming by, I hope to see you again soon! 🙂
