A Change of Color



I still have more Stamps in the Mail items to share with you, but I thought I would share these TWO cards with you today!!!  In TypePad I could tell you to click on a small picture to see it larger, but I just noticed today that in WordPress, if that's possible to do, I don't know how to enable that feature.  Clicking does nothing on smaller sized pictures in WordPress.  Anyone know how to make this possible so that people can see full-sized shots of smaller pictures?????

I wanted to give you more posts in a week so I was really tempted to make these cards two different posts, but I decided not to since they're so similar.  I was inspired by and CASED THIS card by Stamp'nScrap over at SCS.  I pretty much only changed the colors/papers, sentiment, and added some paper piercing (can't go without it!!!) to the one strip of CS in the middle. 

I really love the Upsy Daisy stamp set.  It's so versatile and I sure hope that SU! keeps it around for a long time.  It is one of my favorites and I really like the silhouette style of stamp.

Hope you like them!!!

All items used are SU! unless otherwise noted

Stamps:  Upsy Daisy
Paper:Whisper White DS (both), Urban Garden DSP, Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy CS (blue card); Raspberry Tart DSP, Cameo Coral and Rose Red CS (pink card)
Ink:  Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze classic ink (blue card); Rose Red and Cameo Coral classic ink (pink card)
Accessories:  Scallop Edge punch,  Breeze ribbon from Valet Ribbon Originals Assortment (blue card),  Whisper White Organza ribbon (pink card), paper piercing tool and template
