In teals

Good grief, I managed an evening's post! Unplanned and late, but what the heck. I love hanging around with you folks :)
I've got two new cards to share, let's start with a CAS that I'm very happy about (although this is the kind of card that I usually consider cheated - it required very little amount of work).
Remember the card that I posted earlier today, with the (wonky) scored background? Well, I decided that I try to make it a true 45 degrees this time, and so I did.
For those who also struggle with keeping the angles, here's a tip - place a setsquare in the corner of the score board, so that the right angle is in the corner. The edge of the longer side will guide your paper :)

Supplies: cardstock: American Crafts (teal, grey, black), white; stamps: Red Lead Paperworks; ink: Versafine (Onyx Black); ribbon: PTI (Ocean Tides); Score Buddy

I combined on this card the Embellish Text Color Trends Challenge, FTL142 sketch (I took some freedom...), and CAS121 - Folded and/or Scrunched Ribbon.



I've also got this card, another no-brainer, and that's because layering and cutting into apaper is something that requires no thinking on my side.
It uses my set from the TSG Store - Flying By.

Supplies: cardstock: SU! (Wild Wasabi), American Crafts (Coffee), cream; paper: Cosmo Cricket; stamps: There She Goes (Flying By); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black); Copics; Nestabilities Circles/Scalloped Circles; paper piercer; Glossy Accents; gem brads

I based this one on the SSSC119 sketch:



As always, thank you soooo much for paying me a visit, and especially for leaving the the much appreciated comments! I hope you'll have a wonderful day, and I'm heading to bed. See you tomorrow... mwah!

  3. Oh your FTL card is a real stunner! I love the textures on the base and the placement of the ribbon. The bird with the text on the stark white is striking. Your SSSC card is absolutely adorable. What great work on both!
