Three Easy Pieces

DSCF5977 Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  My sister-in-law is an excellent cook, so we all had our fill of turkey and stuffing!


This week's Limited Supply Challenge at SCS is to make several cards using the same elements, different layouts.  The Pals Paper Arts Challenge is to make a "simple" card with a limited number of layers.  I had lots of play time today but just really couldn't make anything work the way I wanted it to, but I will add these to my card stash as I am sure they will be put to good use anyway.  Sorry for the poor photos; I hope your computer shows these colors better than mine does.


I had several pieces of Real Red left from a large project, so I used these as my starting point; stamped or wheeled each one with a different background (difficult to see here).  I used the Soft Holly Wheel, Baroque Borders wheel and Medallion background stamps; the snowflake is from Patterned Pines and each one is mounted on a Handsome Hunter nestie.  Once I got my basic idea, the layouts were simple & easy.  Each snowflake also has a little sparkly disc in its center; I have NO idea where these came from!!!  But they look cool!!   Here's a pic of each card:




Any questions, just shoot me an email!  TFL!

Did those sparkly discs come from Stamping Bella? I got some of those too, when she sent us stamps for the Throwdown only mine are red.

These are fabulous cards, LeAnne! I love how bright the red is, paired with the white stitched ribbon!

Those are wonderful cards! I also found the lighting is a tricky thing when taking photos for the cards, but I think yours turn out pretty good.

Very pretty cards LeAnne. Sweet & simple!

Juanita said...

Love these.
I recently tried making some OSW for my MIL, they turned out in a similar fashion to these. All 10 cards have very similar elements, just a few layout changes.
You did a great job LeAnne!
