OWH Thinking of You Challenge

Operation Write Home (OWH) Stars and Stamps is having a Thinking of You challenge.  In response to one of our troops asking for "brown" cards I created this steampunk "brown" card.
The card base is Stampin'Up! Crumb Cake.  The background is Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper with Broken China Distress Stain.  The top set of stamps are "Time" from Stampington&Co.  The clock and sentiment are from the Operation Write Home Hero Arts set.  I inked the edges of the card with Antique Linen Distressed Ink.  The brad is from Oriental Trading Company.

Here is another "brown" card I made for Operation Write Home.
The background is stamped with Adirondak Paint Dabber in brown using the Stampin'Up! Belle Toile stamp (retired) and a Glitz stamp for the script.  The flowers are from Creative Memories new Power Pallet called Divine.  Ribbon is Stampin'Up! Very Vanilla as is the cardstock.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts Operation Write Home set.  Bling is from Creative Charms.

Happy Crafting!

  1. I love your style; these cards are simply wonderful. The collage look to the first card is striking and the blue panel just sets off the other elements perfectly. Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

  2. Two great cards, but the first one is over the top! The blue & brown combo really caught my eye. I like the layout of all of the elements too.

  3. These are awesome! You made some magic with colors that might be considered drab. Here your choices of browns and creams and the perfect embellishments is amazing!

  4. Donna I love both of your cards. The stained distress paper on the first one is so pretty. I especially love the background on the second card! Nicely done!!!! Wasn't that class great?
