Raspberry Treats!

I just love the new Raspberry Tart paper and wanted to make more cards using the pretty papers. I used it in the Cupcake Challenge card I posted yesterday, and since I already had it out, I decided to play some more. Some of the papers have bolder prints on it, so I used the kraft cardstock to make the color palette a little more subdued for the effect I was going with. Here's the first card I made, which I call "Friendly Pizazz":

Here's the card Recipe:
*Stamp Sets: All Holidays, Petal Pizazz
*Paper: Raspberry Tart DSP, Kraft, Whisper White
*Stamp Pads: Rose Red, Cameo Coral
*Accessories: Brads, Rose Red Grosgrain double stitched ribbon

The next card is a similar layout, though instead I used the Love You Much stamp set to make a Valentine's card. I embellished with the Boho Blossoms and Heart to Heart punches, used the Pretties kit pearl, then added a little scallop with the scallop edge punch. I used the white gel pen on the heart and on the Rose Red scallop edge. I also rounded out the corners of this card with the corner rounder:

What do you think? Hope you like these! Have a great Wednesday :)

Hi Rose!

Love the cards! I really love that paper too!

I noticed in your address the name Diehl. Is that your married/maiden name? My maiden name is Diehl also! Maybe we are related way back!
