A Wonderful World!


This sunny day sparked a creativity bug! I ended up with two cards for the Twofer Card Challenge gallery. Take a look...

  
I used the raspberries (PSX) as a border for the Serendipity sentiment. The raspberry panel is popped up with foam tape creating a deep area for my inlaid sentiment circle. This one is for an anniversary.


I wanted the raspberries to be the focal on my birthday card. They're randomly stamped on a PTI die cut and topped with a RC sentiment banner.



No fancy coloring, just two clean designs. 
Hope you like them!

Your coloring looks gorgeous, and fancy enough to be perfect, Lisa! You can give me the raspberries any time when they're this adorable!

Both are just gorgeous! As soon as I saw that sentiment in my feedly feed, I knew it was your card!

As always, Lisa, I don't just like them, I LOVE them! Aren't raspberries the prettiest little fruit?! You've colored them just like Mother Nature would and then you've built two sensational designs with them. I can't even pick a favorite! I love the texture and the olive green panel with banner on one design and the sweet way you have made a corner border of them for your second design with that great sentiment! I'm going to remember how you did those little butterflies in white with a dark shadow so they don't steal the show from the ripe raspberries. Smart! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #24! Hugs, Darnell

Those raspberries look good enough to eat, Lisa, and they look good on the green as well as the white.

Yummy looking raspberries & beautiful cards, Lisa! I love that you use stamps from the old companies we loved years ago!

My mouth is watering from those raspberries, Lisa, and I love that sentiment on the first card. The butterflies couldn't be more perfect!

Simply lovely, Lisa ... a gorgeous duo! The bright raspberry frame really draws the eye to the wonderful sentiment circle ... and those tiny layered butterflies are a delicious touch! The texture and layering on your birthday card is fabulous ... the plump, juicy-looking raspberries look so tempting! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)

Very sweet and adorable, both cards are perfect!

Kara Lynne said...

I'm in love with both of these cards, Lisa! Your anniversary card is so pretty with the way you partially framed the sentiment with the raspberries! Your birthday card is as cheerful as can be, and full of great texture and detail! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

Delightfully pretty! Raspberries are my all-time favourite fruit. I've long thought they dervered more action, the way that things like strawberries and cherries appear in all manner of designs and products. What a sweet treat (pun intended) to spot these ripe, beautiful berries on your marvelous makes. You've inspired me to add a raspberry themed make or two to my crafting agenda this year (thank you!).

Oh Lisa...these remind me of Summery days and cozy picnics...I can hardly wait for that time of year! These cards are SO beautiful, sweet friend!

I adore your mix of bright and cheerful raspberries and layered butterflies with that stunning sentiment! The layers on the second card with the embossing and frame are a perfect backdrop to the raspberries.
