Cards from the weekend.

I had lots of fun this weekend making cards.  Mostly experimenting!  The top card has a flower made from a combination of punches.  Blossoms punch and one from Blossoms Petal Builder.  The center of the flower is a rose I made using a five petal punch.  The flower started out with So Saffron card stock.  The back layer I spritzed pretty heavy with a tango tangerine mist.  Used alcohol and a stamp refill for color.  The middle layer I again spritzed but not as much.  Yes, I did scrunch up the petals in the back.  Only when all was dry I glued them together.
The stamps I used were Button,Button and Tagtastic.  Unfortunately the Tagtastic set is discontinued.

The second card mixes it up  I had a tag from Stamp of Authenticity. I layered a stamp on top of this from Friends Never Fade..  Both of these stamp sets are gone.  Boo hoo.The top of the card is DSP in  the color Perfect Plum.  I added some left over paper, ribbon and buttons mounted on a purple paper.  If you look close you can see I distressed the purple

The last card is a favorite of mine.  Making the flower out of the word punch was a blast.  I shortened the length of each punch as I got closer to the center.  The flower is More Mustard card stock..  Made a small spiral flower for the center.  The pearl in the center of the flower was SU's white and I used my blender pens and Not Quite Navy ink to make it stand out.  The Modern punch has a saying from the stamp set Creative Elements.  It's one of my favorites.  The paper behind the flower is a left over piece.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Bye for now.
