Five cards

I have five cards that I wanted to share on my blog today.

These cards have several things in common.

1. They were all made using my Papertrey Ink Lovely Layers dies.
2. They were all made using MIM #88: Positive and Negative diecuts.
3. I made all of them today.

My first card is a sympathy card that I need for a friend. I used PTI cardstock (vintage cream), stamps (Lovely Layers, Botanical Silhouettes) and dies (Lovely Layers, LL:Squares). The pink patterned paper is Authentique & the patterned paper on which the sentiment is stamped (which applies for MIM #73: stamping on patterned paper) is from my scraps and is old. I think it's K& Co. Is that company still around?

The decorative brad is Basic Grey.

My next four cards were all created using the same sketch by Iwona Palamountain's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #86. Normally I'm not a fan of mass producing cards, but I loved this sketch so much, it seemed like a fun thing to do.

For this one, I used some Lily Bee patterned paper from my stash, and a My Mind's Eye decorative brad. I used PTI cardstock (soft stone, vellum), stamps (happy trails) and dies (double ended banner.)

For this one, I used some Teresa Collins patterned paper and a Crate Paper decorative brad. I used PTI cardstock (vintage cream), stamps (on the farm) and dies (double ended banner.)

For these next two cards, I used some Kaiser Craft patterned paper and a Crate Paper decorative brad for the first one) and a My Mind's Eye decorative brad for the second). I used PTI cardstock (vintage cream), stamps (botanical silhouettes). The first card is for this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World: Sweet Dreams.

And its cousin, just reversed:

These last two cards also apply for MIM #73: Stamping on patterned paper.

Thanks for looking!

Leigh,you sure have been busy! I left you a comment on your flicker site, but thought I would leave one here as well! I love, love, love what you have done here! My favorite is the one with the bird embellishment! I just love everything about this one! The negative die cut, the use of vellum, the bird embellishment, the stitching...really great!
