sharing a couple of cards...

Hello friends!!  Popping in with a couple of cards to share for a several challenges.   First up is a card for the current CASology challenge:  Light.   CASology is such a fun challenge with cue words that are always so clever.   I can tell you that when I was on the CASology design team there were times when I was completely stumped by the cue word!   I spent some time thinking about the current cue word and finally came up with this little card.


 
I used the Simon Says Stamp set Bring the Sunshine as well as the matching dies.  I die cut the sun and then stamped it with Memento Dandelion ink.  The sun was stamped again in black and then the center sentiment punched out and adhered over the yellow sunshine.   I die cut the cloud patterned paper (from BasicGrey) using the pinked edge rectangle die from the same die set and adhered that to the white cardstock.   A little banner was die cut, stamped with a sentiment from Bring the Sunshine, adhered it and then added the sunshine sentiment.


The second card is for the current Colour Me...! challenge and PTI's Make It Monday.  I pulled out Harvest Berries and got to work making this super simple take on the MIM technique.   Think I will pop this one into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  Anything Goes


Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white;  SU! Always Artichoke; Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp and PTI; Dies:  Simon Says Stamp; Inks:  Stampin Up!; VersaFine, Memento; Circle punch

Wow, these are both fantastic. Love your little light and sunshiny scene you made for CASology. I did not know you were on the team..boo hoo to me, because it must have been before my time and it sure would have been fun to be on the team with you. I know what you mean by being stumped as it has happened to me too. And, I am so in love with your next card. Harvest Berries is one of my all time fave sets, and I love how you used it. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology and Happy New Year!

Two gorgeous cards, Rosemary! I love your take on the cue card...so clever, and perfectly CAS! I also love your 2nd card! You've stamped a beautiful pattern (like high end DSP) and the sentiment is so elegant!
