PP24, CAS93


Two cards today, both using the Paper Players colors for this week, which are Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and a neutral (I can’t get the swatch to post here, sorry!).  My first card is an encouragement card for my pastor, using some Our Daily Bread stamps and some BG Stella Ruby DP:


I took a little liberty with the colors in the DP, but since it was a masculine card and not a Christmas card, I thought it would be okay.  It was embellished with some diecut leaves and a fold-over panel stamped with an element from Artistic Etchings and some brads.  The second card is a Christmas card and also qualifies for today’s SCS CAS93 challenge, which is a sketch:


I stayed pretty close to the sketch; the images are from the Level 1 Hostess Set, Northern Hearts; sentiment is from Merry Crittermas; Cherry Cobbler seam binding and a Vintage Brad finished it off.  The image itself was colored with markers, overstamped with Linen background stamp (unfortunately retired) and matted with a scalloped Nestie!  TFL!  And here is my own little “cherry cobbler”:

Tractor baby

She is playing with the color challenge too!  Have a great day!

I love that linen background stamp. I thought you stamped it on real linen. Very cool!

Cassidy looks adorable in Red and I immediately was looking for that counted cross stich embossing folder LOL Only to see it was a retired background stamp. Hmmmmm we ned to ask Santa for a linen embossing folder now don't we LOL! Love our card LeAnne!

That is a precious child. I just love when I scrol down and find her darling face. It makes me smile on the inside and outside.

My goodness Linda - I thought it was stamped on real linen too. LeAnne both cards are wonderful. I'm sure your pastor will appreciate the encouragment from your card. Thanks also for pics of Cassidy - just gotta have my "cuteness" fix! Give her a hug for me.

Both cards are beautiful, LeAnne! I love the bird image on your CAS card! Plus, it's never to young to get started in challenges! Tell Cassidy I love her Cherry Cobbler ensemble!

I think my interest has temporarily switched from cards to Cassidy! LOL All the photos of this sweet little girl are screaming to be scrapped! This is such a CUTE picture of her!!! TFS

I like the pastoral encouragement card, also.

Tammy Hershberger said...

Oh, I wanna' hold that baby so bad!!!!!!!!!

CUTE cards! I love how the Linen background looks stamped over everything. Why'd they retire that, for Pete's sake?

Anne Marie said...

LeAnne, before I can even think to talk about your beautiful cards...I have to ooooh and aahhh over your adorable grand-baby! She is sooo cute! (although I'm pretty sure you would agree 110%!)

Both cards are great! The card for your pastor is so rich with the color combo and that holiday card...I had to look really close because I thought it was cross-stitched. You are so creative, wow! :)

Nance said...

Both cards are great LeAnne. I especially love the linen overstamping--I thought it was DSP! Great coloring job too. Little Cassidy is just as sweet as can be!

LeAnne, the cards are fabulous and I am sure your pastor will greatly appreciate his. Now... on to the star of your post.... I LOVE this shot.... and the t-shirt is hysterical.
Hope you are doing well, my friend.
