a couple of cards...

Hello friends!!  Have a couple of cards that I made today.  Both cards use My Favorite Things stamps so that is why I'm posting them together.

 
The first card is for the current sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch and this week's ColourQ challenge.  I used the following MFT stamp sets:  Big Greetings and Abstract Art.  I have had Abstract Art for sometime now, but just hadn't found the right project to use it on.  Finally this week's CTS gave me that opportunity.   I stamped the first image using PTI's Simply Chartreuse and layered the second image using SU!'s Pacific Point.  The sentiment was added using SU!'s Early Espresso.  The card base is Island Indigo. 


The second card is for the current MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge.   Once, again, I used the MFT set Chalkboard Greetings.  Love that set... so fun!  The papers I used are from My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste line... this time the "Flair" 6x6 pad.   I stamped the sentiment using Close to My Heart's Daisy White ink and once it was mostly dry smudged it a bit.  The twine I used is some Tim Holtz paper twine.  I got it this afternoon at Joann's.  They had a lot of their crafting supplies on sale at 50% off and so I thought I would give this twine a try.  It tied pretty nicely... which is something I like.  The banners were die cut using the MFT Fishtail Flag Stax dies. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Great cards, Rosemary! I love the stamps and colors you chose on your first card, and your "Subway Art" card is so cool! Love the polka dot patterned paper and how you placed the twine, too! As always, your cards are so inspiring!
