Emporium Cards

Here are a pair of cards I made with the Emporium Creative Basics paper pack. I LOVE this paper! (Did you know that in addition to the My Reflections Level 2 paper packs, CTMH offers a creative basic choice for one pack each catalog? You get 16 sheets of B&T Duos- 8 each of 2 patterns- and a spool of matching ribbon!)

The first card is the Originals "A Heartfelt Classic" sketch. Believe it or not, I used my Cupcake Sprinkles stamp set, with nary a cupcake in sight. Instead, I curved the dashed line stamp to create my stems. The flowers are the plain Just Blooms that I sponged with Twilight & Vineyard Berry inks. The leaves are a few Just Blooms petals sponged with Sweet Leaf. How cool is that? Now before you think that I am oh-so-clever, I have to confess: this same card was featured in the Daydream Workshop on the Go guide. I just used different papers and inks. ;) The Vineyard Berry ribbon came in the Creative Basics pack.

My next card is also from Originals (the "Uppler Level Focus" sketch that I LOVE to recreate). I used the April Word Puzzle for the bird and the flower background, and the Thanks sentiment came from my For Every Occasion stamp set. I used another Just Blooms and a brad for embellishments.

The girls only have two days of school left, so we are holding on to our hats as we wind down the year. A & I have field day tomorrow. Tonight we're going to work on our teacher thank-you cards since we don't have dance, Girl Scouts, etc.
