Happy Saturday!  I have a couple of cards to share today.  For my first card I am playing along with The Color Throwdown, The Friday Mashup (sketch), and The Card Concept (inspiration).


 
I just love The Card Concept's inspiration photo.  The colors 
work perfectly with this week's Color Throwdown trio.  I started with MFT Stamps smooth white and berrylicious card stock.  I stamped the front of the base with berrylicious ink using Striped background.   I die cut berrylicious with stitched rounded rectangle stax.  I stamped this panel with Swiss Dot background stamp using Sweet Tooth pigment ink.  

inside of card
Next, I die cut a pierced Traditional Tag Stax die namics in smooth white.  I masked off a portion of the sentiment from True Friends stamp set.  I stamped it going down the side of the tag in hybrid black licorice ink.  Then, I die cut the the tulips from Spring Tulip die namics and stamped the coordinating image from Spring Tulip stamp set using hybrid black licorice ink.  I colored with copics.  To comply with the sketch, I added a loose thread bow and let the threads wrap and hang loosely around the tag.  I used the tiny clothespin to clip it to the tag. I finished the front with a few clear sequins.




 
For my second card, I am playing along with
The ColourQ,  
MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge, and Just Us Girls.

Next, I die cut a tag from Blueprints Tag Builder 1.  I stamped a sentiment from Whimsical Wishes in hybrid black licorice ink.  I die cut the image from You Gnome Me die namics and stamped with coordinating image from You Gnome Me stamp set in hybrid black licorice.  I colored with copics to comply with color challenge.  I used some pop dots to add to the tag.  I used some pink/white twine to tie a bow and add element to comply with sketch.  I finished with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

  22. Oh my...your cards are gorgeous!!! Like Kerin...I can't take my eyes off the tulip card either! I think it's the gorgeous shades of aqua and pink that you used that has created such a vibrant contrast of two pretty colors! Thanks for sharing your cards with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)
