Very quick post tonight - I want to get as many of these cards in this post as I can before my feed burns in 14 minutes!!!! ohhhhhh the pressure.
Here's my card for the cleanandsimple fall to layout # 79. As well as the splitcoaststamping thinking of spring CAS challenge. You know I can't resist a CAS challenge.
I used one of the first SU stamps I bought just before becoming a demo... A flower for all seasons (111592). I just love this set. If you want to get this set FREE with Sale-A-Bration, contact your favorite SU demonstrator to get more details on how you can be stamping with this gorgeous set for NOTHING!
I stamped the image on whisper white card stock and colored the image using my markers. I decided to give the little bird a red face :-) Doesn't the basket remind you of a Longaberger basket..... hi Beverly!!! my fabulously creative supplier for Longaberger! :-)
I colored the image with my markers and my blender pen. The flowers are Orchid Opulence, Pretty in Pink, Yoyo Yellow and Summer Sun. The basket is Crushed Curry and Soft Suede. The bird is summer sun and Ruby red. The images in this set are just so fun.
I matted the image with Pretty in Pink, Summer Sun and Orchid Opulence. The Happy Birthday piece is Orchid Opulence printed onto Pretty in Pink. 3 half pearls finish off that layer.
The card stock is Confetti White. I don't often use this gorgeous paper... but I love the fact that the flecks echo the colors in the stamp! It really is gorgeous paper.
I wanted to showcase some of the other cards that we received as part of the charity card drive.
As clean and simple is the theme for tonight... here are cards from Kelli and her friend Tonya. Kelli and Tonya used bright, cheerful and clean and simple for their cards for hugsandhope.org.
This card uses the "too terrific tags" and Wonderful Words II retired sets. I love both of these sets and set against the Pumpkin Pie card stock... it's perfect.
Here's another Pumpkin Pie card using Wonderful Words II - mixed with the Real Red Polka dot ribbon. I love this combination.
This card - again using the Pumpkin Pie - uses the Hello Again set... ANOTHER set you can get FREE as part of Sale A Bration.
This next card continues the great clean and simple theme but uses Old Olive and Sahara Sand. Another combination I have used together, but love!
These cards show you how creative you can be with a limited amount of supplies - either paper or stamps! The flower image is from fabulous hostess level 1 set - Of the Earth.
I love this color scheme of Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant and Sahara Sand. Again, the reuse of the image from the Of the Earth set, the oval scallop punch and the scallop border punch.
And who wouldn't love this fabulous butterfly card!
My thanks to Kelli and Tonya. You guys ROCK! I really appreciate your participating, and know the recipients will love these cards.
Please could you show your love for Kelli and Tonya's efforts by leaving a comment - you know they will really appreciate it. As will I!
Have a fabulous weekend, my creative friends.
