Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge

Here is another card  that I created today for the SSS Anything Goes Challenge.   I started the design by stamping the colored flowers and then stamped over each of them with a smaller black flower.  For a finishing touch, I added a tiny pearl in the centers of the flowers.

Supplies Used:
Flower Friend - Simon Says Stamp
A2 Curved Edge - Simon Says Stamp
Hello Die - Lawn Fawn
Inks: Hero Arts Bubble Gum mid-tone, Hero Arts Green Apple Hybrid, MFT Orange Zest


Color Throwdown #421

 Here is the inspiration for today's Color Throwdown.

 ...and here is my card.  Clean and simple, but these colors were calling my name!

I added a lime colored gemstone for the tree topper and a bigger one for the "trunk".  After all, everything is a little better with some bling!

Hello Sweet Baby - SC621

Hello there!  Long time, no see!  I am almost done moving in to my new craft room and finally made some time to "play"!  Its been way too long!  Today's card is a baby card, and I have to admit, this one came together pretty easily.  Funny how that works when you have an idea in your head!

Here is my card for the latest sketch challenge at SCS.   I used 2 different stamp sets from Technique Tuesday and 3 different colors of pink inks.   I like how this came together for a background and love that this can be one of those cards that can be mass-produced.  So easy to make it into a boy card or a generic baby card just by changing the colors.  I finished it off by adding the sentiment on some patterned paper, popped it up with some foam tape and then added some pearls for a feminine touch.

Supplies Used:
Baby Flair - Technique Tuesday
Sweet Baby - Technique Tuesday
Inks:  Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Berry Sorbet - Papertrey Ink
VersaFine Onyx Black
Paper, Neenah Solar White 80 & 110 lb, Doodlebug patterned paper
