Friday Flashback: Weathered

Welcome to this week's Friday Flashback!  Today's stamp set of choice is Weathered, a great background stamp.  I was kinda surprised how big the SCS gallery for it is, usually background stamps aren't the ones that people choose to upload cards under.  Anywha, let's flash back!

 Ah yes, before I learned to tie pretty knots :)  I'm not a huge fan of this card but I do like the color combo (Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, and Wild Wasabi).  The main image and sentiment are from A Beautiful Thing.

Here's an older card I do still quite like and it might possibly still be in my card stash somewhere.  The beautiful butterfly is from Wonderful Wings, and the sentiment is from Fancy Flexible Phrases.

How do you like how Weathered looks when stamped with white craft ink on dark cardstock?  I like the crackle effect.  The main image is from the wonderful lighthouse set Coast to Coast.

Here's one that features Touch of Nature (I know lots of people were gaga over that set, and I liked it okay but it was never one of my favorites) and Amazing to Zany.

Stippled Stencils and Sincere Salutations for this one, and you can't tell from the scan but the sentiment was embossed in gold.

Another Touch of Nature card with a sentiment from Short & Sweet.

And apparently I really liked using Touch of Nature with Weathered, 'cause here's a third bird.  Sentiment on this one is from All-Year Cheer III, and the harlequin is Print Pattern.

Ready for today's brand-new card?

I admit, I had to do another fall card before Thanksgiving...I figure that starting next week I'll be doing Christmas stamp sets for the Friday Flashback but I refuse to start that before Turkey Day :)

The color combo on this one is courtesy of the challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary, lovely fall colors:

And the sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches:

I kind of wish I'd used some kind of pattern for the Tangerine Tango strips on my card, but maybe that would have been too busy with the Weathered pattern on both the card base and the main image strip.  Regardless, I'm not going to redo it now :)

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
