Sunrise....Sunset.....

These two cards remind me of that song "Sunrise...Sunset" from Fiddler on the Roof. I think that is where it is from....
My High school music teacher would not be proud of me right now! LOL!




Here are two card I made this afternoon during what I call my "lunch break." To others, that time would be known as my daughter's nap time :)


I have been "studying" sunsets for a while now to see how I wanted to ink my Uninked Spectrum Pad. I think I figured it out. What do you think? I "wiped" the colors on Glossy White card stock and then stamped my front image in Basic Black.

Lets start with the tree card....
I stamped the row of trees from Lovely as a Tree in Basic Black. I matted that image in Basic Black and Ballet Blue. The segment on the right hand side of the card is Really Rust matted in Basic Black and then I wrapped Black Twine around that four times and tied in a simple knot. The card base is More Mustard and I also stamped the oak leaf bunch from Lovely as a Tree in More Mustard.


Now for the flower card......
My card base is a 4 1/4 inch square in Really Rust. My main image was stamped in Basic Black over my "sunset" with a stemmed flower in a Level 2 Hostess Collection - Stem Silhouettes. ( I think this stamp set is absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!!) That image was then matted in Ballet Blue and Basic Black. The greeting along the bottom was my version of a ribbon slider. (Ribbon sliders are getting very popular!) I wanted to use the Designer Label Punch for the Basic Black background but it wasn't quite long enough. So I was like....hmmmmm.....then I had a light bulb moment! I took a strip of Basic Black and used my Ticket Corner Punch on the edges. The stamped image is from the Level 1 Hostess Collection - Party Punches. I stamped it in More Mustard on Very Vanilla. I also stamped it a second time in Ballet Blue on Very Vanilla. I cut out the "b" in Ballet Blue ant raised it up on a Stampin' Dimensional. I punched out the More mustard image with the 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch and matted it on Ballet Blue with a circle punched from the 1 3/8 inch Circle Punch. I then took my Rectangle Handheld Punch and punched a slit on both ends of my Basic Black "slider" and slid a piece of 1/4 inch Grosgrain Ribbon in More Mustard.


That should about cover it.....oh my!

The song "Sunrise, Sunset" is from the play "Fiddler on the Roof", sung during the wedding scene of Tevye's oldest daughter Tzeitel to Motel Kamzoil the tailor...
