Scrap Pile Challenge #4 Cards

Hi Friends! It's my 2nd post of the day! I decided to create more cards for this week's Scrap Pile Saturday Challenge #4. The goal of the challenge is to create cards using only your scrap designer paper and card stock and opened packages of embellishments. The challenge this week is to create a card using a stamp you've never used and following the sketch. To view the challenge and play along: Click Here

OMG! These cards were so fun to create! I finally had a chance to use my SU Charming set. I'm not sure why I never used this stamp set. . .I guess it's because I never had a real reason to use it but now that I have, I love the stamp set. I think I just may need to use the set again. The dps are from my scrap pile and I believe it's a SU designer paper. It looks like it. I think it's been in my scrap pile for a long time but I've never digged through it to find such pretty pieces of designer paper. I think the DPs are retired. Whaa! They're pretty!

With this card, I used another SU designer paper from my scrap pile. I believe it's from the Parisian summer DSP but don't quote me. The designer rhinestones are SU as well. Again, I decided to use the SU Charming stamp set.

I'm not sure I like this design too much. My diamond embellishment at the bottom is crooked. Darn it! I only noticed it after I had uploaded the photo. The sentiment is from a stamp I've never used and didn't even know I had. . :) It's by Uptown Rubber Stamps. .. I don't even know if that stamp company still exists! LOL! The dps look like they are by K&Co. I'm not sure. . .again, they are from my scrap pile.

Anyway. . .here are the other cards that I posted earlier today. I made a total of 6 cards and I'm going to make more! Yay! Well, I better get back to business. . .

Hope y'all are having a wonderful day!

Hi, Maria...2 questions: 1) do you use 1-inch ribbon? I didn't realize how pretty the satin ribbon would be on the cards. 2) Do you use a sponge to ink your edges? Your inking is SO even and not "heavier" on one edge vs. another. How do you do that? Thanks...I ALWAYS enjoy looking at all of your creations. They're beautiful. Thanks again!
