two cards... several challenges!

Hey friends!!  Hope you are having a great weekend.  Looks like we will get some rain again here in the Pacific Northwest... we definitely need it and some snow in the mountains!  Popping in with two cards for several different challenges.  First up is a card that I made for the current Merry Monday challenge to make a card with a moose on it.  I have had the card done for several days, but I'm just finally getting around to posting it and the challenge closes in mere hours...YIKES!!  I only have one stamp set with a moose in it and that is my very cute A Jillian Vance Design Simply Said:  ChristMOOSE stamp set.   All the stamps and dies used on this card are from A Jillian Vance Design.  The panel was die cut with the AJVD Rectangle Backdrop dies and the circles with the Polka Dot Circle Backdrop dies.  I created the little wreath around my moose using the mistletoe image from the set and two different shades of green ink.  I really like how it turned out.  The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye.  The layout is based on the current Sweet Sunday Sketch layout.

The second card is for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (a color combo) and uses the current CAS(E) this Sketch layout.  It is a rather cool layout so I thought I would give it a whirl.  The current SSS flickr challenge is to create a fall card so I will be posting this in the SSS flickr group, as well.  The stamps and dies are from Simon Says Stamp (Autumn Blessings and the matching dies).  I die cut the panel with my A Jillian Vance Design Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop dies and then stamped the Thanksgiving using grey ink.   I don't own a MISTI (and don't plan to buy one), but I think I managed to line up everything fairly well!   The wreath and flowers were die cut and then stamped with brown, purple and orange inks and then adhered per the sketch.  Mounted the finished panel on my favorite neutral cardstock... Simon Says Stamp fog.   Easy peasy lemon squeezy!!


Thanks for stopping by today...
