Becky's Cards

Last Sunday I shared some of the things my sister Becky made while she was visiting. These are are a few of the cards she made. I was supposed to post these Monday, but you know the saying...better late than never.
Becky made a total of 15 cards and took home the "ingredients" for some Christmas cards that were left over from a Christmas class and only need to be stamped and assembled.

Becky's a very busy mom and wife, so I wanted to help her make some quick and easy cards.
These cards were made using Stampin Up designer papers. What you see on the cards are the 2 sides of the same piece of designer paper. Either a strip of coordinating paper or a ribbon was attached where the 2 pieces were attached together. The sentiments were stamped and punched with either the curly label or circle and scallop punches or the window punch.

The next 2 cards use the same flower, just different colors. flower is colored with SU markers, stamped across the bottom of a single layer card. Easy!

I made a card similar to this a couple of weeks ago, but used more mustard and kiwi kiss. Usually the image colors are determined by the color of ribbon I have available.
Another set of cards we made (sorry no picture) had grass (from Inspired by Nature) colored in Old Olive and Kiwi Kiss. Butterflies (MS punch) and/or dragonflies (an old punch I have from???) were attached and a sentiment stamped across the top. I CASED the card from one I saw on Splitcoast Stampers.

The flowers and sentiments from Thoughts and Prayers helped create a great sympathy card to add to Becky's collection. The lovely lilac layer was embossed with the swiss dot CB folder. The flowers and stems were colored with SU markers.

It's hard to tell how much time it took to make 15 cards. Most of the time was spent choosing papers and colors, but these cards could easily be don within an hour! Sweet!
