Matching Envelopes

The ScrapZee Wednesday challenge was to make envelopes to go with cards.  So, as I did cards for other challenges, I made envelopes to “match” for that challenge.  The goal was to get 10 cards and envelopes done for a prize for the Ladies’ Tea at our church, but I just didn’t have the time.

These first two were done for the MFP SpeedyTV Simple Salutations challenge of a stamped background.  The stamp on the first one came with my Cardmaking & Papercrafts Magazine this week.  Had fun with that and using a multi colored ink pad.

This next one, for the same challenge I used one of the MFP Heinrich Collection stamp sets and did some coloring with colored pencils.

This one was done for the MFP SpeedyTV Inspiration challenge this week about surf boards.  This looks pretty similar to one of the surfboards, minus the card shape, but I did round the corners.

You can’t see the sparkle in the center and around the edges of each flower, but it’s there.  The flowers are from the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Floral 2 set.

The following card was done for the MFP SpeedyTV Tutorial Time challenge.  I had a lot of fun with the “letterpress” technique and swirling in different blues (I used 4 different shades).  It also uses the MFP Heinrich Collection Gullible 2012 stamp set.

For this last one, I used the My Favorite Things sketch challenge for the week and their CS About New Beginnings set.

You’ll notice my background is different.  My husband has worked for the past few weekends making me a box out of melamine board that has a ridge around the outside for my little OttLite to stand on to take better pictures.  It was so fun to be able to use it today.  He did a fantastic job.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!
