The first card is made with a stamp set being featured this week at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Keep In Touch.
Creative Nugget: Since the elements in the stamp set are vintage in nature, I decided to make this card a little Shabby Chic by adding a shabby bow, distressing the edges, and stitching the panels together. The colors were inspired by The Card Concept Challenge for this week and the design by Freshly Made Sketches. The patterned papers came from an Authentique paper pad and were made a little more aged by applying ink to an acrylic block, spritzing it with water, and stamping it directly onto the DP. A few ink splatters were added with watercolor paints. The images on the card are from the Keep In Touch stamp set and were cut with the matching Keep In Touch Dies. A few postage marks from the Parisian Postcard stamp set were lightly stamped and pearls added in the corner to finish the card.
The second card has a completely different look and was made using the Splitcoaststampers Sketch for this week.
Creative Nugget: All the stamps and dies used on this card are from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. The poppies are from the Mini Flower Blocks 3 stamp set and were colored with Copic Markers and cut with a Spellbinders Square Nestie. The Anna Griffin Poppy embossing folder was perfect for the background. The sentiment is from Keep in Touch, the featured stamp set for this week, and was cut with the edge of one of the Decorative Plaques Dies. The Majestic Monarch was colored with Copic Markers and cut with the matching Monarch Die. The panels were stitched together and a bow and pearls were added to finish the card.
Here are the products from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store used to make both cards:
