Fun Afternoon

I had a little bit of time to make a couple of cards today. Hope you can see these okay as the pictures were taken inside our camper (it was raining outside-yep, with the sun shining). The first one is for challenges NoTimeToStamp108 using the colors (black and kraft) and SC250 for the sketch. Each layer was distressed with my scissors. The leaf panel was in the Fall Elegance set stamped with Sahara Sand multiple times. It was placed on black, both being punched with the ticket punch by SU and raised with foam adhesive. The owl image panels were sponged with Sahara Sand as well and raised before placing on the black panels.

Stamps: PTI Wise Owl, Fall Elegance
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Kraft, Black, unk DSP
Ink: Memento Black, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Dimensionals, sponge, scissors for distressing the edges

The second one was for Card Positioning Systems (CPS137) Challenge sketch and CC240 Color Challenge to use Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip and Apricot Appeal on SCS. I have limited supplies with me but I did have Apricot Appeal brads. Though it's just a touch, it does meet the challenge requirement. The card base is Ivory embossed with the Textile Cuttlebug Folder. A strip of Parisian Breeze Speciality Paper was layered on Taken with Teal. The large Damask Design of PTI's Damask Designs Set is the focal image. It was cut and embossed using the two largest Labels I Nestabilities. An Apricot Appeal brad was placed in the center. This panel was raised with foam adhesive.
