2 Maine Blueberry Cards
Good Thursday Morning Peeps! Hope you all are having a good week so far. Yesterday I got some tough news! The store where I work, is closing. Saturday will be my last day of work. I am very worried about finding a new job, I will have to draw unemployment for a while.
Well, on to today's cards. Again I made two for this sketch. I went over to splitcoast to look at the sketch challenge yesterday and got the wrong one.
This one is from last week. But it doesn't matter, it was still one I hadn't done.
For the two cards I made with this sketch, I used different stamp sets, but used the same designer paper, Maine Blueberry. It is now retired and I will be sad when my pack is all gone. Some of my favorite colors are in this paper. Old olive, not quite navy and whisper white is the colors I pulled from the paper for my cards, it also has bashful blue in it but I didn't use it as a cardstock choice this time.
This first one I used the stamp set, Wonderful Favorites. The wonderful friend is stamped with not quite navy ink onto the white and pieced all around the edges. I added some punched stars with brad centers and some old olive grosgrain ribbon for accents.
This next card I started with a whisper white base:
I used the stamp set Pocket Silhouettes for this one. I stamped one of the images three times with bashful blue ink and then stamped another silhouette image with not quite navy ink as well as the sentiment. I layered that with more not quite navy and old olive cardstock. I used my lace edge punch on the side of the olive cardsock. The designer paper layers are all matted with whisper white. I used soem white brads a tied a bow knot with more white ribbon.
Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
