Started my new batch of charity cards for Japan Red cross!

Hello bloggers,

Hope you all are well and happily crafting away.

I have some good news to share - I have sold 9 cards from my new batch of cards which I am making for Japan Red cross again. 

Below are two cards I made with the same cupcake stamp. 


Base card stock - pale green
Pale lemon card stock embossed with Cuttlebug and distressed with crushed olive and wild honey
Stamp - cake stamp with sentiment from Hampton stamps
Glitter - around border of card stock with cupcake stamp as well as some of the embossed cup cakes (could not picture that too well) 
Sakura metallic pens - to colour the cake stamp and on the embossed ones (cannot be seen)
Cord - from my stash and dyed with the same distress inks


Card stock - dual tone mocha
Designer paper - from Terry's blog candy
Brown card stock - embossed with Cuttlebug and touched with Sakura gold pen
Stamp - same one as above and coloured with Sakura gold pen as well
Tea pots -punched from scraps on my table (stuck ribbon and paper under the teapots)
Rose - hand made by me
Leaves - from Carla craft punch and embossed with Cuttlebug
Ribbon and mosaic - from my stash

They are rather simple cards but I like the first one more than the second. What do you feel?

I am going to enter the first card in Michelle's Make it Monday Linky Party.
