it's a beautiful day...

Hello friends!!  Yep!  It is a beautiful day here in Western Washington!  Course, that means tomorrow will probably be crappy... but tomorrow hasn't come yet so I will be content with today's beautiful!!   Have a couple of cards for several different challenges to share.  Both are very clean and simple... my favorite kind!
First up is a card I made using the current color combo from Reverse Confetti and the current CAS(E) this Sketch layout.  The RC combo is navy, yellow and green.  I pulled out my RC Peacock Pretties set and got to work.  The little banner is also an RC product and was the perfect fit for the sentiment from the RC set Paper Cranes.  A few My Mind's Eye Enamel dots finished things off.
The second card is for the current ColourQ challenge.  The combo this week is grey, lime green, coral and bright indigo.  I used the super cute (and newly release... find the stamps and dies here) Clearly Whimsy stamp sets Sweet as Candy and Sweet as Candy Sentiments, as well as the matching lollipop and large word die.   I die cut the lollipops and then stamped each one with grey ink and the lime, indigo and coral inks.  The word was die cut, stamped with grey in and then coated with Wink of Stella silver ink.   I have included a second photo that shows the subtle sparkle that you get with a Wink of  Stella pen.  The sentiment was stamped in black... sweet and simple!  Going to pop this one into the current Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge:  Glitter It




 

 Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti & Whimsy Stamps:  Dies:  Reverse Confetti & Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Silver Wink of Stella brush tip marker

I love how you played with your feathers on your first card...so pretty! Your lollipops and sentiment are so fun on your 2nd card, Rosemary! I love all the dimension, and adding all that wonderful sparkle is the perfect touch!
