Eastern Blooms Birthday

Today's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers was pink bedding from JC Penny. This card is my submission for the challenge.

This card sure is pink! As I was creating it, all I could think was that it was "too pink," and how could I tone it down? The Certainly Celery green didn't help much, so I decided to add a layer of Chocolate Chip. The base is also Chocolate Chip.

My granddaughter's fifth birthday is coming up soon, so this will be her card.


CS: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Certainly Celery

Ink: Cholocate Chip, various chalk inks

Stamps: SU! Eastern Bloom, sentiment is from a Gina K set

Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch (for the leaves), Boho Blossom Punch, brads, , Fiskars texture plate

3x3 Snowman Swap Card

This is one of 6 3x3 notecards for a swap on Splitcoaststampers. I haven't sent these in yet but I will soon because they are due in mid-November!
It's a quick and simple card. The snowman was stamped on white card stock and cut out (2-1/2" x 2-1/2"). I used the ticket corner punch on the corners. The layer underneath (2-3/4" x 2-3/4") is SU! Brushed Silver. The cardstock is last year's In Color, Soft Sky. The accessories are a silver snowflake brad and light blue organza ribbon.

One card for my stash for coworkers

I give birthday cards to my coworkers, most of whom are men. I have such a difficult time with masculine cards, though. This is one that I made this past weekend and I really like it. I will most likely be duplicating it for upcoming family member birthdays.
CS: Always Artichoke, Choc Chip, DSP
Stamp: Clearly Wordsworth
Ink: Close to Cocoa
