Spring Cards

This is a continuation of my scrappy post from a few days ago. I had more colored images to make cards with, and keeping with my challenge of using up scraps I made 2 more scrappy Gina K cards.

The first one was made with a piece of Marcella K cardstock that was scored with my Scor-pal at 1/2" intervals. I then sanded the scored lines to show the white cardstock core. I added a wide grosgrain ribbon and a bow.

The second card was a challenge, because even though I colored it purple.... I had only this one single scrap of purple dp, and one little piece of eggplant. I really don't use purple very often!!

The third card was inspired by a commercial I saw on TV. I couldn't tell you what it was advertising.... but I loved the colors on it! I used Guava, Celery & Sage for this card with a pop of white and a white rub on sentiment. The sparkle in the flower centers and along the stems are from Patina stickles. I love this color!

Thanks for looking!

that deep purple is a very underused color. I really like how its tempered with a soft green. pretty-so how about some sun and heat to go with?

Oh I love all 3 of your spring cards! Love the deep purple of the 2nd card!

Love all your work!! So talented! I do have a question-- I see that you say you used your score-pal on the first card. What is the difference between the score-pal, score-mini and score-it? TIA

I like all 3 cards, but WOW, the color combo on the last one is fabulous! I'm going to try that one out very soon. Thanks for the gorgeous combo.

Your first card is adorable and I like how you scored the lines and then sanded! Really nice looking. I ended up getting the new Gina K stamps after seeing your cards. They all are great!!!

I love the purple card! You did an excellent job on using your only pieces of purple scraps. I don't use that colour often either.
I have another scrap-card on my blog too. We should really go on with this scraps challenge.
