Stampin' Up Card Trio

On my quest to clean up my photo files I found a few Stampin Up! cards that I don't think I have shared here.

This first one features stamps from 3 sets, and because I am not overly familiar with the names of the sets anymore I won't list the names. 

I used the Chalk Pop technique on this card.  I inked up the background with Versamark ink and then stamped it on white cardstock.  You add the colors by adding different colors of chalk as desired.  I did rows here.  I did the same technique on the flower block.   My embellishments are Candi Dots, and how cool that they match my chalk so well!
 I used the same Chalk Pop technique on this card.  Papers are from My Minds' Eye collections I believe.  The Happy Birthday is one of my first stamps from way back when; Annette Allen Watkins D1280.  I added Jute and Candi dots on this card.
This is a fun Tri-Fold Card that features flowers from a SU! set and verses from Inky Antics.  This card uses another fun tool from way back in the day...wavy scissors...and they are not even Fiskars...I think they are some I bought for the kids and took back when they didn't care anymore! 
There is a touch of faux stitching and distressing on here as well. 

Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with me...I have bazillions of SU! sets....and I know some have never seen ink...I think I need to remedy that..........someday!!
