Cards For Angel's Challenge/Blog Candy

Hey Everyone. I made two cards for Angel's Challenge/Blog Candy. Like I said on my previous post, Angel is giving out a huge prize so be sure to drop by her blog site and check out the challenge. If interested. . .click here for the rules. This card is day 5 sketch. Click Here for the sketch.

I made this card using my CB Leaves die again for the primary image. I did do a little bit of stamping because initially, I was going to post this card on Stampin Inspirations. When I was looking for a focal image, I decided to use the die-cut leaves as my primary focal point so this card ended up being posted here on Card Inspired.

You can't tell by the picture but the stamped background is shimmery because I applied Pearl Ex to the stamped images.

Card Details:

Stamps: SU Grand Cornucopia, Happy Fall Y'all
Paper: SU Really Rust, More Mustard, DCWV Fall Stack

Ink: Versamark, Basic Black, Glitter Gel Pen
Accessories: CB Leaves Die-cut, Grosgrain ribbon, Making Memories colored staples, Fiskar "Cloud" scissors

Here's another card I submitted for Angel of Angelosity's challenge/blog candy. Click here for the sketch. This sketch is for Day 2.

I created the card with a horizontal orientation but I did follow the sketch. Following other people's sketch is really fun. I should do it more often. Did you know that I have never followed my own sketches. . .like I've said in the past, I create my sketches after I create the card.

I think I'm going to create two cards for each post; one is to follow a past sketch that I created and follow another person's sketch from either a blog or SCS. Sounds like a plan. . .

Card Details:

Stamp: Inkadinkado
Paper: DCWV Textured Cardstock, SU Pretty in Pink, Old Olive
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: 1" and 1 1/4" punch, Colorbok ribbons, Fiskar "scallop" scissors
