A (Almost) Catch Up On My Homework

Hiya!! I got to play a little bit this weekend and I made some cards using the Online Summer Card Class that I am taking as inspiration. I have four cards to share, each using either a sketch or color combo (or sometimes both) from the card class.

The first card I made uses the 2nd sketch from week one. I did not use any of the color challenges from the class on this one because I had some paper I bought a while back that I really wanted to use to make some slightly fall themed cards for Operation Write Home. The leaves on the embellishment are cut from the DP and covered with Glossy Accents.

Stamp: PTI On the Farm
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, DP purchased a while back from Micheals (possibly Recollections brand?)
Ink: SU Early Espresso, Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Misc: Various SU Circle Punches, SU linen thread

For my second card I used the week 2 color combo and the week 2 sketch 2 (very liberally, and turned on it's side). I left the front blank because this one is also for Operation Write Home and I thought if it was blank it could be used to say "hello" to a child or maybe be a birthday card....

Stamp: Lawn Fawn Critters in the Burbs, Hero Arts Square Pattern Background
Paper: SU Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze
Ink: SU Lucky Limeade, Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics
Misc: PTI die Cloud 1 & 2

I think my 3rd card is my favorite, and it only uses the 3rd sketch from week 2. I really intended to do more with the color challenges, but I desperately wanted to use this paper (I have had it for over 6 months and for some reason I HAD to use it now!!) It is from the same paper pad as the first card.

Stamp: None
Paper: PTI White, SU Basic Black, DP from Micheal's (possibly Recollections)
Ink: Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Misc: SU Circle Punches, Lil Inker Die - Circle and Diamond Stitched Pattern, PTI die - Counting My Blessings

My final card uses the color combo from week 2 again, but no sketch.

Stamp: Lil Inker Darling Diamonds
Paper: SU Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
Ink: SU Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip
Misc: Lil Inker Die - Circle and Diamond Stitched Pattern

Thanks for stopping by!
