Just a Day late!!

Yesterday my cards were featured on the OWH Stars and Stamps blog site. However, it was SUCH a crazy day that I didn't get a chance to even post the cards here until now. I enjoyed making these cards. On the first card I used a White Background, DP from Stampin' Up called Flowers for You. I then cut a Top Note Die from SU Rose Red Cardstock. I then layered my 'quilt' pieces on white paper and then cut it again using the top note die cut. I used my nestibilities Scallop die and oval die for the sentiment added the sheer white ribbon, and used Prima paper roses for the final touch. You can see the technique – quilted top note from Jeanine at the bucketlist Stamper – great tutorial here I didn’t cut strips as she did, I used my 1” square punch from SU. Sentiment from SU set – Delight in Life.

For this next card I used Orchid Opulence cardstock for the background, DP Cottage Wall, Rich Razzleberry CS, Sheer White Ribbon, White cs for sentiment, Nestibilities Scallop die, paper flowers from UK, rhinestone. Sentiment from Sweet Impressions stamped in Rich Razzleberry. I absolutely LOVE the Cottage Wall DP from SU - may even need to get another package of that before it goes away. This card was one that I sent to OWH to send to the troops earlier in the year.

So, there you have it - my cards that were featured.

Now, if you might not know this - I started a Summer challenge last week - the first challenge was to make a card for a graduate - OR if you don't have a grad in the family, you could do a scrapbook page from the past - I am sure that you have SB pages that have yet to be done!! I know I do!! I haven't scrapped my HS graduation, nor my Jr College Graduation or even my University Graduation - and that has been a LOT of years ago - I do have papers to do it - just haven't. And NOW, I have one of my sons graduation to do and my daughter will be graduating next year - so I probably should get to it - BUT - that was last week - and this week we have a NEW challenge!!

This week is the last FULL week of school for my kids - so they are REALLY looking forward to summer. This week is also my Mom's 79th birthday - so I would like to see Cards that are all about summer fun - OR birthday cards for family/friends.
Post a link to your creation in the comments.

Thanks for joining me on this journey this summer - and thanks for stopping by to visit the spa today - where I hope you have found a bit of relaxation in your day.

Paula, beautiful cards! Thanks so much for sharing them with us a OWH Stars and Stamps. I wish there were more Mother's Day sundays so I could have featured all the Mother's Day cards completed for the challenge on Mother's Day.
