Two Cards For A Rainy Saturday

Hello Everyone,
It is a rainy Saturday here in Michigan today. So, I guess I will just have to make cards all day. Oh darn. LOL. Today I have two cards for you. They are quite different as far as style goes. One is collagey, monocramatic and the other is cutesy sweety.

The First card is a monochromatic card. I used five different stamps on this card. Here is the list:

Travel Abroad - Hampton Arts

Frame - Anna Griffin Collection from All Night Media

Just for you sentiment - Daisy Bucket Designs

Paint Prints - Stampin' Up

God's Beauty - Stampin' Up

That's a lot of stamps, but they all work together. Well, anyway I think they work together. I added lots of Decorative paper from DCWV and a piece of calico fabric ( The dark brown print piece), and some pretty ribbon.

The Second card is made using Penny Black stamps. The image was watercolored and layered. The sentiment, also from Penny Black, is stamped on decorative paper and punched. And of course, a pretty ribbon is added.

Now, don't forget, the Operation Write Home Blog Hop is Saturday March 20th. Operation Write Home is an organization the packs and ships handmade cards to Service men and woman overseas. The cards are blank on the inside. The cards are used by the service persons to write home. According to the responses from the people overseas, the cards are a real moral booster.

Hope you have a super day!!
