Saturday Night Wonders

It's a Saturday night and it's pouring with rain outside. So what a great time to make a card. To be honest I feel lately that alot of my cards have been a bit boring and plain, so I wanted to make something different. So on to SCS I go to get some inspiration.

First it was a quick call to Leonie to ask if I could borrow her Lovely as a Tree and Embrace Life stamp set. So thank you to Leonie.

The first card is from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. I used More Mustard, Really Rust, Vanilla C.S and Afternoon Tea D.S.P (new summer mini) . Choc Chip and Old Olive ribbon. Really Rust Ink. I embossed the tree in gold, and coloured it in using my pencils and blender pen. Also I did alot of sponging around the edges of the card. I am really happy with this card, so I hope you like it too.

The next card I did was using the Embrace Life stamp set (New summer mini). Groovy guava, Ruby Red, River Rock, Vanilla and Ginger Blosson D.S.P. River Rock ribbon. Groovy Guava, River Rock and Ruby Red Ink. I used my blender pen to colour in the flower in groovy guava and then with ruby red. I popped it up with dimensionals to finish it off.

It's lovely being able to relax and unwind after a very busy week of two sons having birthdays and all 3 children being sick.
