We are having our Lord's Acre Auction this weekend at our church and I always make a box of handmade cards for the auction. I struggled getting them done this week, but I made it and think they turned out pretty good. I was inspired by Gloria's sketch for today at Practical Scrappers for the bottom card. I love these colors! The patterned papers are by SEI from the Windsor collection and the cardstock is More Mustard by Stampin Up weird how they went well together. The top card uses all Stampin' Up papers and stamps from my stash. I got these papers from a friend, not sure of the name of them, but the cardstock is the soon to be discontinued Blush Blossom. The stamp sets used for these cards are (bottom card) Upsy Daisy and (upper card) Pocket Silhouettes and Refuge and Strength. I made 12 cards total (2 each of 6 designs) and these are two of the 6 different designs. I didn't get pictures of all them, as I was in a rush, but I am hoping to recreate a few of them for my stash before I forget my design LOL! So I will try and recreate them tomorrow and post. I did a variety of different sentiments from Get Well, Sympathy, Birthday, thank you and even a graduation card this year! Go check out Gloria's sketch and have a go at it, if you need some cards for your stash, this sketch was simple and will help you create some cards using your scraps real fast. The cards the design team created with it range from modern to elegant..something different for every taste! Can't wait to see your cards! TGIF friends, lets chat again soon!
