Fall Flower Card - SSC113

Here is a card I created for the Stamping 411 sketch challenge. I have been trying to work on fall projects getting ready for the Fall Card class next month. It is sure hard to be thinking of fall when it was 102 degrees today.

This was a fun card to create. I used markers to put the color on the stamp and I used quite a few to create the color on the flower.

Inspired by Nature stamp set
Really Rust, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Confetti Cream cardstock.
Old Olive and Dusty Durango stamp pad
Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust and Old Olive markers.
Crushed Curry polka dot grosgrain ribbon.

Sure hope you enjoyed your visit today. God Bless.

Sympathy Card

The is a sympathy card I created for a co-worker. I did use a discontinued designer paper (Berry Bliss) which I usually do not do. I have so much that has been discontinued that I need to use it up. I colored in on the stamp with the markers which gave the card a softer look.

Thoughts & Prayers stamp set
Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White cardstock
Berry Bliss designer paper (discontinued)
Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Regal Rose stamping markers
Wide Oval and Scallop Oval punches
Chocolate Chip 1" Double stitched grosgrain ribbon
