Hello there. I have three cards to share today, and they are for lots and lots of different challenges. First up is a graphic birthday card. I had a lot of fun piecing this one together--kind of like a puzzle.
The challenge this week at Simon Says Monday is to use any one Simon Says Stamp brand product, so I pulled out the Mod Circle Frame Die and the Sending and Wishing stamp set to make this birthday card. I cut the Mod Circle Frame die in each color, and used 3 layers of black for the 'wishing' word. I used the colors at ColourQ #291 and am also entering at Seize the Birthday with toppings: use the negative, Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge Die Cuts / Punches and AAA Cards #39 birthday extravaganza.
I used the serene color scheme at the Paper Players #244 as my inspirational jumping off point for my next card. These colors said 'sympathy card' to me, so that is the direction I went. I started by sponging Distress Cracked Pistachio ink through a screen stencil on to Sahara Sand card stock. I stamped my bird image (from PTI Iconic Images) in WPlus9 Ocean Drive ink on the stenciled area, and then added my sentiment. Looked a little too stark, so I impressed it with a woodgrain impression plate.
I am also entering this card at Addicted to CAS #63 Birds, Addicted to Stamps and More #144 CAS, and CAS on Sunday #58 Cheer Up, Buttercup.
And, I am still making anniversary cards for my mom. Here is one I made using the sketch at Happy Little Stampers--I know I keep using this sketch, but it is a very fun one and quite versatile. I pulled out an old favorite stamp for this one--remember PTI Dot Spot? I paired it with Wet Paint and Happy Everything for a fun mod look.
I discovered a new-to-me challenge at Craft Stamper Take it Make it May Challenge Anything Goes: must use a stamp, so I am playing along there for the first time today.
Thanks for Visiting
