Card Recognition

More cards....



I recently won the above Unity stamps from Emily so when Savannah made a comment on her blog about the All Things Unity challenge I knew I had to get inky.  These are my favorites, because they're the only ones I have!  The new Embellish challenge has some great colors and the theme is birds.



This card is for the Wee Memories "Live, Laugh, Love" challenge.  I knew I had to dig through my supplies to find this stamp for the challenge when I saw it last weekend.  I'm cutting it a bit close with the deadline here...  I've used this week's Off The Wall Craftiness colors for my CAS card.  Okay, so hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow and I'll get out of my house!  Thanks for looking at all of these cards (scroll down to see the other ones from today's crafty snow day).

Materials: 1st card: Unity birds and sentiment, Tim Holtz rays embossing folder, Versacolor Brown ink, Tim Holtz Distressing Antique Linen ink, Spellbinders Label #8, PTI kraft card stock, Stampin Up baja breeze card stock, cream cardstock from Ben Franklin


2nd card: Unknown stamp (gifted from Yolanda), Tim Holtz ornamental die, yellow string, The Twinery Maraschino twine, Making Memories blue eyelets, cheap blue ink from Spotlight, white card stock
