New cards for StampTV

Hello, thought I would post a few cards that I just finished up for the challenges this week at StampTV . My husband, Rick is having surgery on a torn rotator cuff tomorrow and I don't know how much down time I will have as I care for him and his mother that lives with us. She is bedridden now and needs constant care. I will try and check in and do all I can as it is a great release for me.
This first card is for the color challenge this week...using burgundy, gold and white. I layered a piece of DCWV metallic gold on a card base of 120 lb weight from Gina K designs. The burgundy is by Stampin' Up. I used versamark to stamp on the burgundy and then embossed with the gold powder. The flower is made by distressing 3 scallop punches and pulling apart. I then layered and shaped them before connecting with a gold brad. The sentiment is from GKD's set Friends and the dollie is from her set Nana's Needlework.

The next card is for Vicki's sketch challenge. I used one of my favorite sets, Life is Good. I sponged the background on to kraft card base before layering the white and sweet corn card stock. (All by Gina K designs) The images on the sweet corn were done with Versafine Vintage Sepia. I stamped the cabin in a oval nestie and colored with my Prismacolors and OMS.

My last card is for the Blast from the Past challenge...to paper piece. I again used my new set that I won the other week (in one of these challenges, so please play),Nana's Needlework. I stamped the shelf and quilt and then stamped the quilt again on some retired SU dp. I cut the squares out and layered on the card quilt. I then layered this image on more of the dp. Love this and can't wait to try it some more ways.

Sorry to post so many at once...Wishing everyone a wonderful rest of your week...Loving all the sneak peaks on the new release at StampTV. Please join us this Thursday evening.

Beautiful cards, Patti! Each one is so special. Glad I don't have to pick a favorite! Good luck with DH's surgery tomorrow. Keep us posted, okay? Would love to know how he does. (I had to have my R shoulder rebuilt in 2005). I'll send up some prayers for you both!

All beautiful cards!! Especially like the gold dollie and quilt. Have both of these sets to cut out and use. Hope your husband's recovery goes well.
