Pretty Cards and Things!

I made this card for the Simply Scrapping Crafts August Week 2 Creative Corner challenge. The challenge was to make a pinwheel and use it in a card or layout. I made 3 pinwheels, but only used 2 of them on this card. I also got my Ippity groove on and used 4 of their stamps: 1 for the sentiment, 1 for the banners, 1 for the sheet music background, and 1 for the dotted background along the bottom. I just love all these new Ippity stamps I got - amazing quality and designs!

I used an Antique Linen distress ink for the background stamps to give them a subtle nature.

The pinwheels were fun to make - haven't done that in a zillion years!

After I made my "Sisters" layout last week, I used some of the scraps to make this card for the SSC August Week 2 Paper Scraps challenge. The challenge was to make rolled paper flowers - I made one medium-sized one and two small ones to add to this card. I also used an Ippity stamp for the sentiment, some additional Prima flowers, and a Stampin' Up little flower punch for some tiny flowers to accent the larger ones. I used gems and Liquid Pearls for their centers.

I was on another Ippity groove, and made this card with some more of my "Sisters" scraps. The bird and the diecut label are both cut from a Cricut cartridge. There's that gorgeous Ippity sheet music background stamp again - I think it looks really pretty on top of that Prima patterned paper. That stamp is in the same set with this sentiment stamp. And that fabulous soft blue ribbon was a gift from Rona when I purchased my Ippity stamps from her - check out her blog and Ippity stamps (an entire new fall stamp menagerie was just released yesterday) at Rona will take excellent care of you!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Friday!
