two more cards...

Hey friends!!  Stopping by with a couple of more cards that I made today for a few challenges.  A little sore from physical therapy the day before and so I kept things very, very simple for both cards.  The first card is for the current CASology challenge.  The cue word this week is row.   As I thought about what I could make for the challenge I remembered one of the very first stamps I ever bought from Impress Rubber Stamps.  The image is of three little vases with a flower in each vase... a row of vases!  I pulled it out and did some simple watercoloring using Zig Clean Color markers.  I stamped the image in VersaFine Vintage Sepia and then colored the image with the markers and a water brush.  Once I was finished with the vases I added a light wash of grey around the vases to ground them.  The image was die cut with a Spellbinders plain square die and then mounted on a die cut panel of white cardstock that had been stamped with a row of three stripes in light grey ink.  The sentiment from the MFT set Pretty Poppies was stamped in black.  Adhered the white panel to a light grey panel and then to a light blue card base.  Not the most creative take on the cue word, but I really like how it turned out!  I will also be adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.


The second card is for the current ColourQ and Freshly Made Sketches challenges.  I recently got some new dies from A Jillian Vance Design and one of them was the set of Daisy dies.  I used two of the dies to make my flower from navy blue and aqua cardstock and adhered them together with a foam dot.   The center was die cut from orange cardstock, adhered to the center and Glossy Accents added.   I die cut a panel of white cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black.  Some partial embossing was done to the top of the panel and then Diamond Stickles were added.  Finished off by adding the flower and some leaves die cut from a light green cardstock.  Again, another simple design, but I do like how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today...

Both of your cards are so beautiful and CAS. I really love the delicate row of mini vases, and how you colored them. And, your second card is such a wonderful way to use our colors. Love your die cut flowers. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology and ColourQ this week.

You do have the most wonderful style, my friend! CAS is so not simple when you do it! The first card is really a masterpiece--the gray lines, using blue & gray layers, beautiful stamp! The second card is an absolutely perfect use of the color combo--LOVE that flower!
