A Double Decker in a Short Time

I finally got back to the craft room, but we're leaving again tomorrow for 10 days.  So this post includes two separate challenges:  Case This Sketch #291 and Less is More #381, which also happens to be a CASE challenge.

             Case This Sketch

The designer paper has metallic copper printing; the Hero Arts leaf was stamped twice on a watercolor background and cut out to make the focal piece.  Leftover watercolor paper was die cut for the sentiment. 


      Less is More

This card is 5x5, dry embossed in a folder.  The Penny Black leaf stamp was colored with markers and spritzed with water before stamping.  It was then cut out and applied to the embossed card front.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.  Copper colored pearls accent the focal piece.

I'm completely in love with your first card, Evelyn! The yellow-gold on the dark background, sigh, a favorite! The designer paper is outstanding and your watercolor background made for beautiful leaves and sentiment. Wonderful simplicity on each card. Your second has an embossing folder I rarely get around to using, but I like it because it's large enough to cover a card. Beautiful maple leaves and truest sentiment. I hope you're enjoying your time away. I'm glad just to stay home for a while!

Hi, Evelyn,
Love the ideas you come up with. They are simple and elegant at same time.
I am trying hard to use up my patterned papers...like matching the way you do..and have no luck. I used to be able to give away my papers, but now there are no stamp stores near me to donate to.
We are waiting for the color change here in upstate SC. I think we may get some rain from the next go round of hurricanes. Funny--we moved her to avoid them and we have had more than my old hometown in Tampa has been getting.
Oh..no problems, though.
Anyway, keep up the great ideas. I am trying to work on my Christmas cards now and seeking ideas, as usual. Hope your family and grandkids are doing well.
