Flowers, Triangles & Specs


Hello again!  I'm back with a few more of the cards I created yesterday.  First up is a card for the Muse challenge using the Colour Me…Playful colours. This is Anita's first card as a Muse designer - whoop whoop!  If you haven't seen her work before you should take a moment to check it out - she has a great CAS style that I love.  As you can see from my card I really liked her Muse design and I've stuck very close to it in terms of layout and images.  Her adorable Woodware flowers reminded me of these Simon Says ones that had yet to see ink so it was a great excuse to pull them out. Also if it wasn't for Anita's card I probably wouldn't have come up with anything for the Colour Me challenge but the two fit together perfectly.  Love when that happens!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Blackberry Bliss) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers from Scribble Flowers) Simon Says Stamp, (Sentiment from Grand Greetings) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Pink Pirouette) Calypso Coral, Garden Green) Stampin' Up
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
Gems:  Recollections



This next card is also a two-for-one challenge card.  I combined the Little Tangles die cutting challenge with the latest Colour Throwdown palette.  These colours rock!  I love the lime green and aqua together and the greys are the perfect compliments.  And how cute is the little bucket in the inspiration photo?  I want one!   


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Lucky Limeade, Coastal Cabana, Smokey Slate, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Just For You) Neat & Tangled
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Tiny Triangles) Neat & Tangled
Gems:  Recollections

  

This card is a CAS design for the current Addicted to Stamps & More challenge.  It also uses the palette from ColourQ where they are celebrating their 300th challenge! Whoop whoop!  I've been playing along with ColourQ since I first began blogging and they provided me with one of my fist challenge recognitions which meant so much to me when I was starting out.  Arielle and all the team members rock! The stamps are all from Paper Smooches.  That's it from me today but I'll be back tomorrow!  Have a great night!  




Supplies Used:

An amazing trio Jen. Each so very different and all just perfect. The triangles first caught my eye, as I have that die (under-used) and the other two were like getting a double dessert when you thought you were done.

Lindsey said...

You are on such a cardmaking roll! All three are so well done.
