More Cards!


I have a few more cards to share. I try to use the OWH sketches whenever they are posted and I have fallen a bit behind but here is a great sketch and I used an adorable Penny Black stamp that I received from the super generous and kind JoAnn Ross.

I am really trying to go out of my comfort zone- and playing along with Less is More is really stretching things for me. I posted a card the other day but it really did not have white space like the LIS folks promote- so I am trying again and trying to embrace that less truly can be more! This forced me to use an embossing folder- one of my most neglected tools!

And another site I am being motivated by is where there is a sketch for this challenge.
And can you stand one more card (OK-2)? Over at Cards in Envy the challenge is to make a card for a friend.
I made 2 cards....and I like them both for different reasons. I love the MFT die of all the people holding hands and I inked 2 of the pals with gold ink-friends are more precious than gold! And I like distress ink panel on the birds card.

And I am excited to say that my eagle card was chosen for the top 3 over at The Male Room.  I struggle to make masculine cards so this site is so inspirational- I love looking at all of the cards created for each challenge!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Diane, you have been busy! I am so impressed! Your card is gorgeous with the beautiful Fall leaves! Love the background paper, too! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week! XX

  2. Wow what a beautiful lot of cards! The bird friendship card is just lovely! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Cards in Envy!

  3. Love your cards and the one you linked to our challenge with the birds on the line is beautiful! Thank you for sharing with us at Cards in Envy!

  4. Running behind on card things, I just found this! I love what you did with the Penny Black stamp! Too, too darling! And the bird stamp is so perfect, I would've sworn it was a gorgeous Penny Black sticker. It looks store bought, but better!
