Buckle Cards-First try!

I've been seeing these for quite a while and finally decided to give them a whirl! Mainly because my downline and I are teaching them to a stamping group Friday night. That's inspiration! and procrastination, but that's usual! If you're from the Stamp Heaven group, we'll show you how Friday night. If not and you need directions, go check out Beate's tutorial on SCS here. One thing to note: most of the buckle cards I've seen have the buckle tucking into the slot punch from the top down. These samples are the opposite of that.

This is the first one I did. This Rebecca paper has been laying on the floor in my stamping room begging to be used for quite a while now and I decided this was the time!

The colors are Pixie Pink, Sahara Sand, Close to Cocoa & Whisper White. The Ticket Corner Punch was used, along with the Chocolate & White grosgrain. The Canvas Background was stamped in Pixie Pink with Pixie Pink. The Everyday Blossoms Wheel was done in Sahara Sand on the Sahara Sand.


The second one uses the new Notations double sided Designer Series paper with Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery & So Saffron CS. The Ticket corner punch again, along with a Tempting Turquoise button, Celery & White grosgrain. This one uses the Paisley background stamp in Tempting Turquoise on Tempting Turquoise, and again the Everyday Blossoms wheel, with So Saffron on So Saffron.
