Card of the Week

Playing along with the CPS sketch of the week.  As soon as I saw it I knew I had to use it for a couple wedding cards that I need.  It's just a really clever sketch.

This is CPS sketch # 173:

Isn't it purdy.  Doesn't it just scream..."use me".  I actually came up with two cards from this one sketch.

Here's my first card:

And here is my second card:

I have to give a lot of the credit to Lisa Silver.  It was her sample card that inspired me the most.  I also got a great chance to use the medallion stamps that I won from Linda B.  To create the larger gold paper on the second card, I used one medallion stamp with gold ink on a cream colored strip of paper.  I just stamped it over and over again to make it look like designed paper.  (I hope I explained that well enough for the non-cardmaking folks.)  All the small squares are taken from some gold foil papers that I use frequently.


  1. Nice cards! I think I like the 2nd one best!

  2. I like the soft, vintagey colors and the way you used a scalloped punch on your small squares.

  3. I bet whomever gets this card will treasure it! Good job!

  4. Wow! What fun cards using the CPS sketch and wowie on that button stamp by Pink Persimmon that you used on one of them! LOVE the new web look too.

  5. GREAT cards! Amazing how the color change makes the same sketch look totally different. I was honored to have received an award and am passing one on to you. Details here:
