Apples & Glasses

I didn't play around with watercoloring yesterday like I hoped but I did manage to get a few cards made in and around supervising the guys who were here to service the windows and storm shutters.  

This card is based on the design at CAS(E) This Sketch.  I paper pieced the Paper Smooches apple with Echo Park papers, embossed the sentiment and that was it.  Super quick and easy!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  This & That Graceful 6x6) Echo Park
Stamps:  (All from Falling For You) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow

This second card was a nightmare to photograph - black cardstock is so tricky to capture.  I made it for the current Curtain Call challenge.  The glasses are die cut from pink DCWV glitter paper - I love that stuff!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Basic Black) Stampin' Up, (Pink glitter) DCWV
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Incognito) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Glasses) Paper Smooches
Gems:  Recollections
