Another Two for One

This morning while no one was stirring except the hubby and I – he went off to work and I went to my craft space – I created 2 cards!!

I have tried all day to get decent pictures but I guess – WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get)

Here is card # 1 :


This card was made by diecutting 3 circles in my top panel and then stamping it!! I put the panel on foam tape and the circles with the stars are recessed in the circles!! I used Old Glory, a much loved, OLDER, set from Stampin’ Up! and my ink colors are Real Red and Brilliant Blue! Have you ever wondered if you can die cut denim – well, the answer is YES, that is what my banner is cut out of!!

I am linking this card to the following challenges:

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge # 275

And now, My # 2 card:


This card was made using white cardstock, paper scraps and an OLD Stampin’ Up! set called Seasonal Solids ! The watermelon stamp was colored onto with Real Red and Glorious Green and then stamped!! And a gingham bow completes it!!

    Oh my Miss Taunya…so many challenges for your pair of wonderful cards. I love the fact that you actually cut a piece of denim to use on your card, so stinkin’ clever my friend! Your second card with that sweet piece of watermelon looks so yummy. Wishing you and your family a happy and festive 4th of July!

    These cards just shine with summer sweetness, Taunya! I think you must be one of the fastest cardmakers around. You always seem to create at least two cards when you have some time in your craft room. I’m in awe!

    Wow, good for you getting TWO cards made before anyone else was even up. That’s a great way to start the day. : ) They are both very cute and I love that you used actual denim on the first; perfect touch. Thanks for playing with us at The House that Stamps Built.
