Shoes and Flowers

Hi there!  

I've got two cards to share today for a few challenges.  First up is for Freshly Made Sketches and the colour challenge at Just Add Ink.  I dug out some old Paper Smooches stamps and dies for this card.  How cute are those shoes?  Initially I just had the shoes laid out in a grid pattern but that didn't seem quite right.  Then I tried popping them up on black squares but I didn't have the right size.  Finally I punched out a bunch of circles and voila - third time's the charm!  I love it!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Perfect Plum, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Retail Therapy) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Shoes) Paper Smooches
Punch:  (1 1/4" circle punch) EK Success
Gems:  Recollections

Next is a card for the colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.  This is the first time I've inked up this Altenew set and I love it!  I am definitely going to be playing with it a lot more especially with the feeling of spring in the air - its perfect for this time of year.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Old Olive, Pacific Point, Sahara Sand) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Garden Silhouette) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Old Olive, Pacific Point, Sahara Sand) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Garden Silhouette) Altenew
Twine:  Darice
Gems: Recollections

Both designs are lovely Jen! Love your use of the shoe die paired with the sentiment, so quirky, fun and colourful and the shoes have real impact against the black circles! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim
