Stamp-A-Faire 2017 ~ Catch Up

The PTI festivities are over but there's still time to enter your cards until Thursday so here's a few more cards I was able to make for some of the challenges:

This card uses Lizzie Jones wood grain inlay technique.  I made two cards using both the white and kraft panels.  
 I used Cloche Quarters Summer Fillers.

My next card uses Natasha Trupp's technique to "Create a project featuring an inked impression plate (or cover plate, stencil, etc.) technique".
Now I know this seems strange that it doesn't have a wood grain background.  That's because the word "wood" wasn't in the challenge description so I chose to ink up the Aida Cloth Cover Plate.  I like how it made a Swiss dot look.  I also used Bowl of Sunshine 1 & 2 and a sentiment from New Every Morning.

This card uses Betsy's Faux Iron technique.  I used the gate from Make It Market Garden Gate and Pumpkin Patch.  My gate looks more like copper but we can pretend that it's iron.  Right?  ;0)

And finally I have a card using Yana's technique to "Create a project featuring a metallic embossed die-cut."  I used Lovely Laurels and the bow from Kind Of Corny.  Love the detail in that bow!

That's it for me for cards for this years Stamp-A-Faire.  There's a lot of amazing challenges and techniques that I've  missed but I hope to try them out as time allows.
If you've stuck with me through this, I thank you for visiting and for each and every comment.  If you're an e-mail subscriber, I apologize for over loading your e-mails with frequent posts.  
It's been a super fun time to binge on card making.  Now back to reality.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

All of these cards can be used as masculine cards, which for me, are hard to make. It's not easy trying new techniques but you've conquered each one perfectly. Amazing cards!

All your SAF cards are wonderful. Your wood cards are neat and your 'iron' gate is very cool! Happy SAF.
