My first card is going to Uniko, where I've chosen to make use of their lovely sketch, which you'll see in a minute. Then I want to send this over to Less is More, where the challenge is to combine three of their past challenges. I chose Week 26 "Feeling Fruity", Week 38 "Polka Dots" and finally Week 213 "This Makes Me Happy." Without sounding weird, this card does make me happy. And boy do I need that after this week!
I kept it fairly CAS. Started with a Michaels white base and scrap, which I die cut with my PPP little square. Added a scrap of polka dot cut with MFT's pierced rectangle which I adjusted to make a square. MFT's flourish sits behind the popped up focal panel. The stamps are W Plus 9 used with various inks. You know... this does make me happy!
This next one has a playdate at CAS(E) This Sketch, and also over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where it's Anything Goes. Busy little card...
Got a few weirdish things going on here.... First, the leaf is gold. NOT green. Gold. The walls in my (hahahahaha) photography studio (living room) are green. Next, the gold inks I wanted to use just looked goofy next to the Punchinella vellum (SC), and the gold leaf. It's brown ink. I know, right?! Hazel by ME to be exact. But it works. I cut the leaft with an MFT die. And all on a Michaels white base. Kept this one CAS. I like it that way. And I've got to run. Time to get the salmon ready to go under the broiler. Yum! Have a beautiful Palm Sunday tomorrow. Happy dances everyone.
