Cards, cards, cards

Finally, finally some stamped creations for you to enjoy!
I've been feeling bad about all the posts full of text and no cards to see.
About 7 pm last evening, I finally found my way into my stamp corner.
It took awhile to get the mojo flowing, so some of these are not my favorites, LOL.

This first one is a sympathy card using a pre-colored digi image I found this afternoon at Fred, she said. When ordering with them, if you order $10 or more, you will get 10% off. Fun!

Stamps: Corner Gerbera daisy, digi stamp from Fred, she said, SU Close as a Memory, SU The Art of Life (background)
Paper: SU Tangerine Tango, Garden Green, PTI
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: ribbon from my stash, pearls, ticket corner punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, corner rounder, tearing edge, sponge.

These next two cards were made for the CAS challenge over at SCS.
I love using flourishes, such simple elegance.

Stamps: Fancy Pants Pollen Dust, PTI Everyday Classics
Paper: SU Baja Breeze, PTI Ivory

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: pearls, corner rounder, sponge.

Stamps: SU Priceless, Close as a Memory (sentiment)
Paper: SU Perfect Plum, Grey, PTIWhite

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Perfect Plum
Accessories: circle and scallop circle punches, SU grey ribbon

This next card is for the SCS Color Challenge this week. It started out as a sympathy card and ended up being a birthday card. I just couldn't get the soft, mellow feel with that yellow!

Stamps: SU Lovely as a Tree
Paper: SU Old Olive, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, PTI Kraft

Inks: SU Night of Navy
Accessories: brads from my stash, circle punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nesties Labels 14 (inside)

And here's the inside:

This last one I'm not at all happy with, but it's very CAS. I'm always a little uncomfortable with CAS, never quite knowing when to stop or what to add!

Stamps: unknown digi image from my files
Paper: SU Black, PTI White Inks: just my printer ink Accessories: Score Pal, scissors to cut out nothes

Simple, simple, simple!

Wonderful cards! And I really like the CAS one!

Great cards! I like the colors on the first one and how you used the same stamp on the inside of the birthday card.
