Happy Saturday!  It has been a rainy Saturday which, for me, translated to cleaning and crafting!  I have a couple of cards to share.  For my first card I am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch and The Fusion Challenge.  I used the gorgeous inspiration piece.  

I started with MFT smooth white and ripe raspberry.  I stamped my leaves from Circle Scribble Flowers stamp set using Hybrid Black Licorice ink for leaf outline and jellybean green for the leaf color.  I also stamped a few leafy sprigs from  Desert Bouquet.  Once all the leaves were stamped, I die cut the panel with Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stax using the two largest dies.  

I die cut the Circle Scribble Flowers die namics several times using smooth white card stock.  I inked several flowers using the Circle Scribble Flowers stamp set in Blueberry, Ripe Raspberry, and Lavender Fields inks.  I used versamark to stamped the coordinating scribble images and heat embossed in white.  I used foam mounting tape to pop up the center stitched frame. I arranged my flowers some using foam mounting tape for added dimension.  I added a few die cut leaves as well for added depth.  I love the contrast and the whimsical finish.  I even thought any of the extra embossing dust added to the effect.  I layered the happy trio die namics three times and added to the center.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.  

For my second card I am playing along with the Colour Q colors.  I am a huge fan of anything black and green!  I am also playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and Just Us Girls "splatter" challenge.  

I started with MFT black licorice, kraft, smooth white, and limeade card stocks.  The card base is black licorice.  I die cut the kraft panel with Blueprints 22.  I stamped this panel with Linen background using natural ink.  I inked the edges with versamark for added depth.  I die cut a smooth white panel with the same edge, but also used the stitch frame from Blueprints 20 across the panel to get the angled stitched edges.  

I die cut the tree leaves from Out On a Limb die namics.  I layered the leaves three times.  I stamped the top image with the stars in Totally Happy stamp set using limeade ink.  Once the card stock was stamped I die cut the leaves.  I die cut the tree trunk with black licorice twice and glued together for some added dimension.   I used Distressed Hearts stamp set to add the grout gray ink splatters.  I used Whimsical Wishes for the sentiment stamped in Hybrid Black Licorice ink.  I used Blueprints 11 for the tiny stars.  I finished with a few clear sequins. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
