Simply Stampin' Challenge 10

These are my cards for this week's Simply Stampin' blog challenge. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. The stamp set I have used for the card is 'Ornate Flowers' from Stampin' Up.

For all the cards I begun by stamping the background papers using one of the stamps from the Ornate Flowers stamp set. I stamped a panel in each of the chosen colours. I used the same stamp again for the main image.

I covered three square card blanks. Onto this I added a square panel in a dark shade of card and the stamped patterned panels. I punched a strip of the darker coloured card using my Stampin' Up scalloped edge punch. This was added to the cards along with two strip of coloured card. The main image was added with foam pads.

To finish the card I stamped three tags using the Stampin' Up 'Tiny Tags' stamp. I punched these out using the Jewelry Tag Medium punch. I added the tags to the card and finished with a ribbon bow.

Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive

Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip
