Today's cards

Hello!  In between the three concerts my son played in this weekend, I only had a few hours to create a few cards.  The first is for this week's OWH sketch #211 :
I used two oval dies to emboss the area around the lighthouse sticker.  The paper is from Club Scrap.
For my second card, I was inspired by the color challenge at the Daring Cardmakers which is based on this photo:
 I used the Tim Holtz Rays stencil and Distress Inks in yellows (Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade) for the rays.  Then I moved the stencil and inked the space between the rays with Salty Ocean to create the sky background:
The sentiment is by Technique Tuesday.  I added Wink of Stella to the yellow rays, but it's hard to see that in my photo.
Hope you're having a great Sunday!  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Love the lighthouse in the double ovals. :)

  2. Beautiful cards. Like the look of the double ovals and impressed with the lighthouse sticker. The rays on your second card are spectacular. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. These are two very different but pretty cards. As I'm missing sunshine at the moment, I think I like the second card even a bit better =)
    Thanks for taking part in the Daring Cardmakers colour challenge.

  4. Wow Erika, your cards are a burst of sunshine! Great take on the sketch, and love the double ovals. Sure wish I could find lovely stickers like the lighthouse. Thanks for playing!

  5. Your sunshine card is simply stunning! How fun! Your lighthouse sticker is wonderful! tfs!!!

  6. Wow, that sunshine card is amazing, it just pops! Like Miri I do miss sunshine today so thanks for your rays.
