NBUS Challenge #2

Hello!

Well, I'm back. I have been creating lately, it's therapy for me when I get sad. Thanks so much to everyone who contacted me and expressed condolences and understanding.

On to some fun...Darnell at djkardkreations has a second NBUS challenge. Just couldn't let that go on without me!

Here's a couple of cards I have made recently. Please ignore the date on the side. Really, they were made in the last 2 weeks and photographed on 9/15/2014. I just messed up changing the date in my camera when I put in new batteries! You can also see I still need lots of practice taking pictures. The card on the left looks like it is falling off the table. tee hee

Here's the details:

The designer paper is new to me from Doodlebug Design and the little white house I made to go on top is new too. I used a few of the dies from a set by Taylored Expressions called "Build a House". Really a simple card made with a SU! Pumpkin Pie boarder placed on white cardbase. Inside I stamped congratulations and it was done. The card was made for a friend who recently bought a new house. It was so much fun making this card, I made a second one. I had bought the corrugated paper die cuts at a local craft store ages ago and welcomed a chance to use them. All the shapes are by Jillibean Soup and the package was on clearance!  The pale yellow cardstock is is from my stash. So I am following the directions from Ms Darnell  #4 "None of the above" ~ NBUS stuff, but not the same stamps 'cuz I didn't use any stamps except inside. Anyone else using mostly dies lately and not stamping? I find I am addicted to dies and cutting plates too.

Thanks for stopping by. See you next time!
