Painted Sorry Crackle

The other 3 Sorry cards!

This batch uses the Crackle Paint background with Crumb Cake. Edges again sponged with Crumb Cake. Very Vanilla background, Early Espresso accent. This card is Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry. Copper Trim for accent on all of these. Flower center and words stamped in Early Espresso. Flower petals "back" is Daffodil, "center" is Crushed Curry, leaves Mossy Meadow. Card base is Crushed Curry.

Grapefruit Grove for "back" petals, Calypso Coral for "center" and card base. Leaves Pear Pizzazz.

Melon Mabo for "back" petals, Lovely Lipstick for "center" and card base. Leaves Old Olive.

These are pretty quick cards to do. I would also bet we have lots of other flower stamps that would work for a similar layout!! Thanks for stopping by. Product details and shopping links below.


Painted Sorry Birch

Morning all! This is a layout I've shared before, but one I will go back to time and again. Especially for Sympathy cards, I think it is perfect. And so many options! I tell you all frequently that many different colors will work with something I've done. Here is the proof on this one! There are three here, and will be three more in another post soon!  Remember too, change the saying and have an entirely different feel! Birthday, Thinking of you, Congrats? 

Sayings are from Sorry for Everything. Flowers from Painted Harvest. Non sunflower colors for all these! The first layouts I did with this idea used a DSP background in a wood print. Those are all gone, so I started with Very Vanilla cardstock and added a background stamp for "texture". These all use the Birch background and Crumb Cake ink. I sponged the edges of the background with Crumb Cake ink as well. They also all use Early Espresso as the accent layer, and ink for the center flower and saying.  Colors on this one are Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green. Balmy is the "background petal", Blueberry the "center petal". Granny leaves. Espresso dots of varying ink strength. Card base is Blueberry Bushes. Lined thread attached around and a knot tied.

This one is Rich Razzleberry for the "background petal", Blackberry Bliss for the "center petal" and Garden Green leaves. 

This one is a new combo for me, and one color I've only used once before. Gotta say, Terracotta Tile makes me think of clay pots, but it is a much prettier color than that! "Background petals" are Petal Pink, "center petals" Terracotta Tile, and leaves of Old Olive. Copper trim on this one instead of Linen Thread.

Daisy Friend #ctd578

Hey all! Inspired this morning while browsing Facebook and email. I generally start my days there when at home. I came across this color challenge, and then a card on Pinterest and the idea was in my head. I tried to ignore it for a while, but finally gave in. Isn't it a happy card?

I saw this challenge earlier in the week and was intrigued. I've said this many times, I don't do red often but every once in a while it works!! The colors are from the Color Throwdown challenge of the week. Red, Dark Gray, Light Gray and White.

In Stampin' Up! Colors that is Real Red, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Shimmery White cardstock. Card base is Basic Gray, accent layer of Read Red. The background is the Birch Background stamped on the Shimmery White with Smoky Slate. The flowers and Friend are from Daisy Lane. I stamped the small ones with Basic Gray and punched. The large ones are Real Red, also punched. On the gray ones I colored with center Real Red with ink from the lid and a blender pen. When I tried that with the red ones they bled, so I stamped two more and just cut the center of the flower. I attached over the Real Red and blended with Basic Gray ink and a blender pen. The tag the friend is on is from the Painted Labels dies in the Mini. All flowers and the tag were attached with Dimensionals. Lastly I added some Shimmery Crystal effects to the flower centers.

Thanks for stopping by today! I have a few other cards from the weekend I will get to at some point this week! Product details and shopping links below.
