Purple & Green

Hi there!  It's been a cold and blustery day today so after having a walk with Tex I scooted off to the Craft Cave for some inky time and I have two cards to share tonight.  

First is inspired by  EK Gorman's card over at Muse.  I love that chicken and sentiment - they totally cracked me up!  I looked for something similarly funny but in the end I took my inspiration from the leaves surrounding the image.  They reminded me of the leaves from Altenew's Doodle Blooms so I pulled them out and used them to frame the sentiment on a simple thank you card.  I used Zigs to colour everything and popped the flower up on foam tape for a bit of dimension.  There's plenty of Wink of Stella on everything too.  I'm also going to enter this in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Flower & leaves from Doodle Blooms, Sentiment from Many Thanks) Altenew
Inks:  (Intense Black) Simon Says Stamp
Markers:  (41, 45, 81, 82, 83) Zig
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollection

Next is a card for Freshly Made Sketches.  The stamps are all from Essentials by Ellen.  These stamps were everywhere last year but I didn't get them until this year so as usual I'm a little behind on the trend but I don't care because I love them.  I got a couple of other sets from last year too so you'll be seeing a lot of them.  Consider it a trip down memory lane!  

Time for bed now.  Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up

Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow

Gems:  Recollection

Both so fabulous Jen, it's been blustery here today too, something to do with living near the water for sure.

I love how you played off of my card over at muse. The leaves of your card really do reflect the same feeling I was playing with on mine. Your CAS card is just gorgeous.

Beautiful times two, Jen! Love how fresh and pretty your purple and green combinations are! I'm not scooting out anywhere these days; it's currently minus 32 C...and that's the HIGH! Yeesh!

A fun and whimsical Christmas hanging-from-the-tree-ornament, Jen ... and just the prettiest floral sprig ... so deliciously CAS! Hugs, Anita :)
