Coordinated cards by the Juices...

Finally getting these uploaded! Yesterday was a busy, but fun, day...we spent the day at a park in San Luis Obispo for my DH's work picnic. There was awesome BBQ, an egg-themed competition for the adults, and bubble-blowing for the little guys...they were adorable! Anyway, today has been a bit slower, so I have some time to show you what Melinda and Chris did for Thursday's Creative Juices meeting.

I know they didn't plan it, but their cards are nicely coordinated for this blog post! *wink*

First up, Chris (aka Razzleberry)'s card:

She used the Tart & Tangy stamp set from SU!, and the coordinating Summer Picnic papers, and the background Old Olive cardstock was dry embossed with the Distressed Stripes folder. The brad is actually just a typical brass office brad, made to match with some Cat's Eye ink. Isn't the card so cute? This would be a great card to make a bunch of, to give someone as all-purpose cards! All you'd need is a box to put them in! *wink*

Melinda (aka Passionfruit) came up with this card for us to make:
It's hard to see, but it's on a white card base (and I also apologize for the rather severe angle, but my light box was not cooperating, and the card kept falling over!). The flower is actually an Autumn Leaves Rhonna Farrer clear acrylic stamp image (you can see it in Versamark on the orange panel as well), stamped 4 times in the same spot, rotating it slightly each time. Love the spirograph effect it has! I love this quote from Helen Keller...this would be great for someone heading out on their own, graduating from college or making some other big life change. (Melinda actually had this sentiment made at a rubber stamp shop because it's a favorite of hers).

Thanks for stopping by today!

Once again, I'm amazed by the collective creativity found in the "Creative Juices!" The cards are beautiful and put me in the mood for autumn.
