more clean and simple cards...

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!
