Too much fun!

So...I am having some glass panes made by a stained glass WIZARD from Love That Glass in a neighboring town.


Nancy is wonderful, and as I was leaving, she gave me some packing material that comes between the glass pieces, thinking I could create something with them.


Both of my cards today showcase this material on the background. One is Kraft colored and one is white colored. They were SO much fun to play with! Let me show you what I did with them!


* * * * * * * * * *


This first card uses the white background. The image is Penny Black (thanks Chris!!!), and the sentiment is Skipping Stones.



I will enter this birthday card here:


The Pink Elephant: Challenge #69 - Gotta Wear Shades (Bright, Fun Colors)

Party Time Tuesdays: Challenge #1 - Anything Goes Birthday

The next card features the Kraft colored packing material on the background.

The bird print is from My Mind's Eye, and the sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms (thanks Kristie!!!). (The green mesh ribbon at the top is also from Kristie's blog candy)



I will enter this card here:

Hope that something you saw here today made you smile! Thanks for stopping by :)

Hi Patti hope you are enjoying your Hump Day!!! These are two fabulous cards sweetie, I LOVE that first image and the way you did the bg!!!! Your second card rocks too, LOVE that birdie and the added bling, GREAT layout!!!!

Olga said...

these are absolutely gorgeous! I'd say on the white you used a borderpunch, on the second added some color by rubbing a ink pad over it????? I'll check back later to see who else guess and what the correct answer is..........

Wow!!! Love that packing "stuff" and love both cards - especially the flower on the second card - looks "Tim Holtzy" style. This working is surely cutting into my ME time and you know I get cranky without that ME time!!!
