More Challenges...

...from splitcoaststampers, of course!!

I decided to add catalog numbers for you. This makes it easy for you to create a wish list...who doesn't ave a wish list???

I have a Clean and Simple (CAS) card to show you first...

The card base is the retired Pink Pirouette...but you could easily replace it with Pretty in Pink (#100459 IBC). I used just one layer of Whisper White card stock (#100730), adding the small detail with the Ticket Corner Punch (#107214). The floral image and sentiment are both from Thoughts & Prayers (#113252) colored with markers so that I could have multiple colors on a single stamp. I used Stampin' Write markers in Pretty in Pink (#100036) and Certainly Celery (#105106). Since the Soft Subtle brads (#106954) are further from the edge than usual for me, I used my paper piercing tool (#116631) and Mat Pack (#105826) to make the holes. What else did I need...ummm, RIBBON!! My absolute favorite embellishment! Here I used 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbonin Certainly Celery (#109050).

This Thoughts & Prayers stamp set is a MUST-Have in my book! It is easy to use, makes great design with little effort, and the tree image included is great for masculine and/or femine cards. I could use it over and over!
Come to think of it...I do!!

I made this next card with a color challenge...Pale plum, Perfect Plum, and Soft Suede. Funny thing is, the challenge hostess loves soft suede, and "dreads" the plums...I am just the opposite! I don't have much soft suede card stock now, so I just used a little bit. (#115318)

The card base is in Pale Plum card stock (#101658) which I ran through my Big Shot (#113439) using the SU Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates (#114512). I added a strip of Perfect Plum Patterns DSP (#112158) across the middle. The main image is from one of my favorite stamp sets, Embrace Life (#114958). I stamped the leaves and flower stem in soft suede (#115657) and the flower in Perfect Plum (#101437); using my blender pens (#102845) to color the flower with Perfect Plum and Pale Plum (#102732). The sentiment is from On Your Birthday (#111664) and I stamped both the image and sentiment on Whisper White card stock (#100730). Of course, I used my Ticket corner punch (#107214) and Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430), plus just a small tag of Soft Suede Polka-dot grosgrain ribbon (#115612).

I like this card so much, I am sending it in for a swap!!

Gotta run...there's more to create!! Happy Stamping!!
