Sherrod Studio Sneak Peak Day #3

Yesterday, I promised two cards. How about two tomorrow instead? With my paper cutter and glue gun in another room, finishing my second card last night would have meant taking a chance on waking Marv, which is the equivalent of messing around with a sleeping bear. I wasn't in the mood to be growled at and thought you'd understand.

Now, let's get down to business. This is another card created with stamps from the beautiful Friendship Blossoms set from Sherrod Studios. This set, along with "All Hallow's Eve" and "Harvest Blessing" will be available on Thursday. For my flowers, I stamped the lined image with Chocolate ink. Then, I took the corresponding solid stamp, inked it up with Sunflower and then rolled the edges in Autumn Terracotta. A quick and easy technique with great results. The flower centers and sentiment were stamped with Chocolate. To finish it off I used Autumn Terracotta ink to add some speckles. Very simple, but a fun card nonetheless.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Chocolate cardstock; Chocolate, Sunflower, and Autumn Terracotta ink pads; Sherrod Studio Friendship Blossoms stamp set; Ribbon from Wal-Mart.

Now that you've seen my card, go see what the other design team members have to show you today: Mary V., Sparkle, Leah, Ceal, Joseline, Mary G., Dawn, Kelly, Kim, and Sherrod Studio.

And now, it's off to bed, as the "last night" I referenced earlier is still tonight for me, and I'm exhausted. I didn't get quite as far with my invitation project tonight (or last night) as I had hoped. It's OK. Tomorrow/today is a new day. Speaking of ... Make it a good one!!! Later ...

Wow! You did an awesome job on the flowers. Makes me almost glad fall is coming. LOL

Totally understand why you wouldn't want to mess with a sleeping bear, I mean Marv. LOL

If I lived closer, I'd be right over helping you out with the invitations!
