Tuesday Mailing -- in Red

Today I mailed these four cards for my weekly mailing to:  a remote ranch in the mountains of NE Oregon, Western Washington, a town on the Oregon coast, and Queensland, Australia.  (The designer paper is Prima and the sentiment is Penny Black.)

Sweet Sunday Sketch #253

This was another Sweet Sunday Sketch I enjoyed working with.  All the papers came from one 6" paper pad by KaiserCraft, called "Lilac Avenue."  The sentiment is from Penny Black.

Less is More with a Sketch -- and a red rose

Less is More features a sketch this week, and I found myself gravitating to bright red for my card.

A New Challenge: Sweet Sunday Sketch

One of the blogs I followed posted a card for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  I enjoy sketch challenges, so thought I would jump in.

As it turned out, I had some pieces left over from another challenge, blogged HERE. Red, black, manila file folder, embossing folder...and a die cut heart cut from a variety of washi tapes.  I added two layers of a die cut word this time. The result:

Red cardstock and designer paper from Gina K Designs; Tim Holtz Postcard embossing folder; "happy" die from Simon Says Stamp.

Fusion: Two Hearts

For the "Two Hearts" FUSION challenge, I chose to use a woodgrain embossing folder for the card layer cut from a manila file folder, two hearts die cut from a layer of washi tapes on a manila background, and a punched edge embellishment.
