Ministry Cards #3…!

Hello All!

Welcome Back for a peek

at another batch of Ministry Cards!

The Card bases and envelopes were given to me,

 I have added my Stampin’Up! Cardstock and Stamps

to decorate and embellish these Cards!

This batch  is 2 each of 8 colors, making 16 Cards!

 

Here are the Cards! One of each!

100_7331

These are all 8 Cards together! (I did make 2 of each color!)

All the Cards are stamped with:

Positive Thoughts stamp set-greeting/inside sentiment

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink- greeting/inside sentiment

Time For Tea stamp set-flourishes above and below the oval cut outs

Pear Pizzazz Ink- flourishes on front and inside,

over and under the oval die cuts!

With my Big Shot I die cut the front oval,

With the Layering Ovals Dies,

From each of the colors,

I die-cut the oval/scallop oval frames.

I used the Scallop oval frames on the front.

With the punched out oval from making the frames,

I adhered to the inside of the cards!

For the greeting/sentiment to peek out!

From the leftover pieces from die cutting the oval/scallop oval frames,

with 2 small punches, I punched out many different colored flowers!

With a 1/8″ Circle Punch, I punched out the little black circles for use

as the flower centers and the butterfly’s bodies!

Here are the Parade of Cards!

Card #1

Soft Sea Foam

 

Card #2

Pear Pizzazz

 

Card #3

Highland Heather

 

 

Card #4

Coastal Cabana

 

Card #5

Until the next Post…Blessings to you ALL!

A Footnote: after posting this here, I took the

Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Pen and outlined the edges of the Poppies.

I am in the middle of learning a new camera…my Kodak digital camera died after taking

today’s and tomorrow’s pictures!

Therefore, no new picture of the poppies outlined.

I did the coloring to cover up the ‘white’ edges!

I am now learning the Nikkon Camera,

Mr. Hubster bought for me about 7 years ago!

I loved that Kodak! But alas, we all have time limits!!!!
