Merci

Hello there blog friends! Just a quick post with 2 cards...the first is my take on Debby Hughes card from the Online Card Class, 'Stenciled'. I love her light and airy cards and her teaching style...not to mention her beautiful British accent!

I used my Tim Holtz Honeycomb Stencil and inked it in Hero Arts Soft Pool, and Tide Pool. The vellum tag is from PTI and the twine is Hemptique Aquamarine Collection. It appears dark brown on my screen, but it's actually a deep turquoise. I finished the card off with 2 enamel dots and one silver sequin, just as Debby did, since I thought it would be fun to mix them.

My next card was for our Hero Arts Flickr Group Scramble, and I would like to enter it into this week's challenge at Addicted To Stamps and More. Our challenge is to create a CAS card, so I thought this would fit nicely.


The sentiment is from Hero Arts, and I love that it's so elegant, and wanted to make it the focus of this card. The card base and heart are SSS woodgrain cardstock and the gems are from Pretty Pink Posh.

Well, that's all from me. I'm really enjoying 'Stenciled' Card Class, and can't wait to see what they have in store for us next!

Take care, and thanks so much for stopping by,
Barb

Your cards are both awesome! I loved the card you created for the scramble and also greatly admire the Day One class card you made in "Stenciled". I am SO loving the class and can't wait to make even more cards with all these awesome new ideas. Thankfully, this week should be a lot less hectic and give me lots of time to PLAY! Yippee!

Both cards are so pretty, Barb! The first one looks so soft with the subtle blue color and I love how you scalloped the bottom edge of the vellum tag! Your second card is perfectly clean and simple - LOVE the red and white with the angled sentiment! ♥

Love them both Barb, but it's the vellum label with the pattern peeking through that had me at hello!
