I hope you have been enjoying your weekend :) I didn't get much time to craft but did squeeze in a few cards for current challenges.
First up is my card for this week's CASology with the cue card - Wood.
I gold embossed a circular woodgrain stamp from Hero Arts. I stacked the die cut circle up with 4 or 5 layers to make it a bit more chunky. The lovely bird die cut is from Penny Black and sentiment is from Hero Arts. I used a gold krylon pen round the edge of the white card. I love a black and gold colour combo and think it works well for a sympathy card. I will also link up with Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes.
I have also made a card for The Card Concept's current challenge with a baby theme. I used this sweet panda stamp from There She Goes which, unfortunately, is no longer available:
I die cut the heart and popped it up over some patterned paper. The sentiment is from one of my all time favourite sets by Papertrey Ink. A few enamel dots to finish. Simple!
I hope you like these cards. I'll be back soon once I have had the chance to make something else to share :)
