Hello! Hope your weekend is going well. Did you watch the launch of the SpaceX/Nasa mission? We did and it was awesome! Didn't get to see the Falcon rocket land because the camera cut out, but oh well! Anyway... I have a couple of clean and simple cards to share today. First up is a card for the Color Throwdown challenge. I used the Spellbinders May small die kit and my Glimmer hot foil system with this one. (Right now Spellbinders is having a sale on lots of Fun Stampers Journey items. Just click on the banner below to be taken to the sale.) I used one of the border dies to die cut my white cardstock panel and then adhered the panel to a white cardstock base. There is a set of dies that cut words thank you and then a frame and panel that can be placed behind the words. I die cut the words from turquoise cardstock and the back piece and frame from black cardstock. I then adhered those pieces to the panel. I foiled a butterfly using a turquoise foil, die cut it with the matching die and then adhered it to my panel. Super, super simple. Think I will add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.
This next card is for the current Pinkfresh Studio challenge as well as Freshly Made Sketches. I pulled out an older Pinkfresh Studio stamp set that I have called Abstract Builder and used a brush stroke image and a leaf image from the set. I stamped the brush stroke in the colors from the Pinkfresh challenge and then embossed the leaf image over the top in white. I was inspired by a card made by Pinkfresh design team member Natalia that is featured on the Pinkfresh blog. Her stripes are bolder than mine, but that was my inspiration and her white flower. I oriented my stripes to work with the FMS layout. I finished off the card with a sentiment from the set stamped in black ink and lots of Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
