A Card A Night...

Ok, I told you in the last post I was trying to make at least one card a night. Even if it is a simple card or a duplicate of one I have made before. So here are the cards I have made the last three nights.

These cards look kind of plain, that's because I haven't put a sentiment on them yet. I will wait to see what kind of card I need to send, then will put the appropriate sentiment on them.

The first card is made using the stamp set Embrace Life. I used watercolor paper for the cardbase so that I would have a sturdy card. I stamped the image in black stazon and colored it with Pretty In Pink and Regal Rose markers. I sponged some Barely Banana ink around the image and tied a piece of Regal Rose ribbon around the card. This would make a great get well, thinking of you or birthday card. Did you notice the little beads on the bottom right hand corner? Aren't they cute. I will show my Club ladies how to do this at our next meeting.

The second card is another very simple card. I stamped the leaf image from Embrace Life in Mellow Moss ink then colored it in with a marker. I used my Three Flower punch to make the flowers. It's hard to tell in the picture, but I used the Color Spritzer Tool and the Pretty In Pink marker to add some texture to the card. The cardbase is Pretty in Pink paper with a layer of Mellow Moss paper. Notice the beads in the corner again? I used some non-Stampin Up ribbon to finish it off. Again no sentiment until I need the card. So many times I will have a card already made that would be great for a certain occasion, but I have the wrong sentiment so I can't use it.

The third card uses the stamp set Happy Everything and the new Sticky Letters. I really like these letters and the fine glitter looks great on them. I used the Little Flowers stamp set and stamped the flowers in Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery ink. I layered this on Certainly Celery Designer paper and the cardbase is Bashful Blue. I did some faux stitching and there you have it. Another quick card. The Happy Everything set has several small words to choose from such as: Life, Everything, Birthday, For You, Holidays, Together, and Days. I will again just add the rest of the sentiment when the card is needed.

Thanks for looking, now I need to go make a card for tonight.

I love the simplicity of the first card. Single layer cards are so difficult to pull off and this is beautiful...I'm guessing the beads are strung onto a I correct? I thought they were brads until you put out the bead teaser.

Beautiful cards, as always. I'm with Stacie in guessing that the beads are strung on a staple. Great idea to wait and add the sentiment when you need the card.
