OWH MWT - recipe cards

Hello there and happy Wednesday! It has been so busy this past week - my house looks like a tornado whipped through it, LOL, which totally stresses me out - that I haven't had much time to craft!

2 patterned papers
1 twine/ribbon
1 die cut
1 embossing folder

I made this one first. While I love the papers, it's overall just kind of 'meh' to me. The ribbon looks a lot more coordinated than in the photo, I promise.  I combined a couple of sentiments but I'm not sure the mix in fonts works either. ARGH! 
My Mind's Eye Blink of an Eye
Sentiments from Ali Edwards/TT
Plaid embossing folder (on top pp piece)
Nesties labels 8

So then I made this one, and I like it a lot more. It's not crooked in real life. Maybe my head is crooked? I swear I have way too many crooked photos lately. :/
Hero Arts for OWH sentiment
My Mind's Eye Away we go paper
PTI smokey shadow card stock
CTMH ink; Twinery twine
Nesties small ovals

The embossing is harder to see in the second photo - I embossed the larger oval with a woven/linen embossing folder. It's subtle. :)

Thanks for looking!



  1. Love both cards and I think the pattern paper on your second card really makes it pop!

  2. Nice! I like both of your cards for this challenge, they're fabulous!

    Thanks for playing in our Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge!

  3. I like both of them! I really like the bold sentiment on the second one. I like the way the delicate twine complements the large letters.

  4. Both cards are beautiful. I love the sentiment on the first card!

  5. Really nice use of patterned papers in both cards!
    This was a fun "recipe".

  6. I love the papers in your first card and the second one is great with those darker colors. I almost always make two cards too!

  7. Both are fabulous cards...maybe if you matted the sentiment on the first you would like it better. tfs!!!

  8. I like both of your cards but the second one is my favorite. I really like the ink color used on your cards. Brings out that color in the papers and twine.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
