OWH Sketch #125

This week's sketch challenge at OWH Stars and Stamps blog reminded me of a "LOVE" stamp from Stampin' Up that I hadn't inked up in years! I heat embossed the letter blocks in gold, and mounted them on some pretty white embossed paper I picked up on a DP shopping frenzy at Michael's a few weeks ago. I added some white ribbon and layered everything on a white card base.

I decided this would make a pretty wedding or anniversary card, so it's being filed away until the perfect occasion arises!

Then, it was on to some cardmaking for my OWH box! I cut some sentiments at 3/4" in black using the Cricut Stamping Solutions cartridge, grabbed some gingham ribbon, and layered silk flower embellishments from Creative Memories.  Quick and fun!

And now, for the card I REALLY wanted to make today!  I've been wanting to use this cute stamp from Penny Black for QUITE some time....and thought she'd look pretty cute on this floral embossed paper! I dug around for some black gingham print paper for a background, and the "XOXO" seemed it was meant to be!

WOW! Lots of card making today!  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!  Have a great week!

  1. Cute, cute cards!! You do good work, girlfriend!!

  2. Wow, I love all of these but your sketch card is amazing! I love the embossing! How elegant! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Shari, these are all amazing. The card for the latest sketch is so elegant, I think I'm going to try something like that today. I really like the embossing folder you used for all of these, too. Where did you get it? And that multi-layered flower is really cool too. Maybe I'll try that today, too. And that ladybug'd cutie is adorable. Oh, Sheri... Thanks for starting my card-making day off right! :)

    1. Thanks, Rachel! I'm glad I could provide some inspiration! I do use embossing folders a lot, but this white paper came embossed. It was from "The Paper Company", purchased at Michael's. Have fun creating!

  4. I will have to check that paper out...I have a wedding next weekend. Great cards! TFS!!!
