2 posts in one day – I never thought I’d see the day…

But, I really really wanted to squeeze in one more card for the ‘Case Your Favorite’ Challenge over at the Wee Memories blog before tonight’s deadline…
Not surprisingly, I’ve chosen another beauty by Dawn McVey – her style really inspires me and so does her Raspberry Suite stamp line for Papertrey Ink! I have cased the layout of these card & also used the Delightful Dahlias stamp. set, but changed the looked a little with a white background and gradient dahlias, heat embossed with white. The second card is the same design, but tried it on a kraft cardbase which was impressed with the Linen and Canvas Impression Plate from PTI. Not sure which one I prefer actually….what about you?
This card is also for the current challenge over at one of my fave blogs, A Passion for Papertrey – Perfectly Pretty Pearls.

Embossing, ribbons and sparkle…

Oh how I love thee…

Today’s card uses another one of my favorite go-to stamps – simple & bold, it doesn’t require much else. I made a whole set of these cards – they look lovely all lined up! I thought it would take me a long time with all the sewing, embossing and bows, but managed to do a set of 10 in one evening after work (that is quick for me!).

This card is for the Wee Memories Bowtiful Ribbon challenge (I could submit an endless amount of cards to this fab challenge!) and also for the Paper Players Wet Embossing challenge. I use a lot of embossing in my cards, especially white embossing on dark or bright colored cardstock, so may have a few more submissions for this fun challenge before Friday.
