More HYCCT Cards

Here are a few more cards I made for the Hope You Can Cling To challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  This is their second annual month long card drive to benefit those affected by breast cancer.  Our cards are being sent to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas.

My first card was for the challenge to make a card using things that begin with the letters P.I.N.K.  I used:

P = Polkadot & Paisley stamp set
I = Iridescent Ice embossing powder
N = Notched corner punch
K = Knot as in french knots sewn at base of flower

I stamped the flowers in Melon Mambo first and then used my Versmark pen to heat emboss them with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.

Here's a close up so you can see the iridescent ice embossing and french knots a little better.  You can always click on the photos for a closer view, too.

My next card was for the challenge to Treat Yourself by making a card with candies or cookies or fruits, etc.  I chose to use this beautiful pear image from Gina K Designs stamp set called Fruitful Harvest.  I colored the pears with Copic markers and sponged around the image with Ranger's Spun Sugar Distress Ink. 

My third card is also for the HYCCT to dry emboss something.  I dry embossed my vellum window pane with a stained glass embossing folder.  I made my door using long classic rectangle and classic square Nestabilities.  I used brass hodgepodge hardware for the door handle and mail slot.

Oh my gosh, Charlene, you have outdone yourself. These are gorgeous creations, and your design and detailing look fabulous. My favorite is the door. I am definitely going to be casing this one!

You sure are back in the groove again with your stamping...All these Hope You Can Cling To cards are amazing!

We had a busy weekend and I'm just playing a quick catch-up now. I'd spotted this in Google Reader yesterday morning, wanted to come back and say that these are gorgeous!! I just love the glass panel in the door, but it's the PINK one hat really wowed me.
