Hello!! Enjoying a beautiful sunny day here in Western Washington... still a bit cold, but I will take it just the same!! Hope all is well in your part of the world!! Have two cards that I made for the new Less is More challenge, as well as the new Dynamic Duos challenge. When I first saw the LIM challenge I thought "oh... make something with spots or stripes", but then I re-read the post and saw it was use both spots and stripes and it has to be one layer!! Yikes!!! That threw a wrinkle into things for me. Had to do some out of the box thinking for this one, but I came up with two cards that I really like!
The first card came about as I was playing with several PTI sets (Polka Dot Basics 2, Distressed Stripes and Bitty Background Blocks) to see what I could come up with. Several attempts using Polka Dot Basics and Distressed Stripes came to nothing. But then I decided to stamp the little background block that has tiny dots in it and add the two stripes... loved it!! I think this card will also work for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge (color blocking) so I'm going to pop it into that challenge as well. The sentiment is from another PTI set Signature Greetings. The Dynamic Duo colors this week are Pool Party and Lucky Limeade. I don't have Lucky Limeade so I used Pear Pizzazz instead.
The second card happened because I took a look through my PTI mini sets and saw the Bits & Buttons set. The buttons are... well... dots and some of them have stripes and dots in the buttons!! For this card I created a border using two different sized dots and the two Dynamic Duo colors. The sentiment is also from Signature Greetings. I haven't used this many PTI sets ever! Of the two card, the first one is my favorite.
Thanks for stopping by....
