SC181 AND WT171

If I had bothered to look at the Ways to Use it challenge over at Splitcoast yesterday, I would have found that two of my four cards qualified as they both have ric rac on them. Doh!! (Summoning Homer here...)

As I mentioned, the stamp set and the paper piercing is what differentiates the cards. Two use one stamp and two use another and they all have different paper piercing. It made for a quick set of cards.

Thanks for participating in my poll!

So, without further ado, here are the remaining two cards edited with Photoshop in YOUR preferred method (and no wonky shadows!) :)

Check THIS post for more info on where to get the items I used to make the cards and to see the sketch diagram for SC181.

Stamps: Heartfelt Phrases by Verve Visual
Paper: Fancy Pants "Fairytale" from GBC, Kraft and Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black Classic ink
Accessories: Black grosgrain (SU!) and black ric-rac (GBC), paper piercing tool and guide


  1. Both of these cards are so cute! Black always makes cards look so elegant!

  2. Love the simplicity! And I LOVE anything with kraft paper. So yummy.Misty

  3. CUTE CUTE!! I need some ric rac :)

    Hi there... I just LOVE your blog. You have such a great style and I just had to sneak a peek over here after finding your little comment you left me on mine. I'm so adding you to my sidebar so I can check back often. And a very special thankyou to your husband and all he is doing for us in the Air Force. :) Have a wonderful day!
