Stamps: Happy Moments (retired), Autumn Days
Ink: Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Square Lattice embossing folder, Designer Buttons (playground)
For this weeks Clean and Simple challenge, I decided to make two cards. For both cards, I started with a base card made from Soft Suede. On the first card I added a layer of embossed Square Lattice Soft Suede cardstock and then added a piece of River Rock cardstock. With the Very Vanilla Square, I stamped the Pine Cones from the Autumn Days stamp set and the Birthday sentiment from the Happy Moments stamp set. Before adhering the Very Vanilla to the River Rock, I distressed the edges, by running my thumbnail along the edges. I finished off by adding a Button.
Stamps: SAB Punch Bunch
Ink: Poppy Parade
Accessories: Square Lattice embossing folder, Scallop Circle, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Itty Bitty small flower Punch, Versamark
On the second card I used Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride as my contrasting cardstock . With the Poppy Parade, I embossed the cardstock using the Square Lattice embossing folder and I used it to punch out a Scallop Circle. On a piece of Very Vanilla Card stock I stamped the ‘For You’ sentiment from the SAB Punch Bunch stamp set and punched it out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. I then stamped the same stamp on River Rock cardstock using Versamark. I trimmed the small flower head and the centre of the larger flower. I adhered these to the Poppy Parade stamped image. I adhered the Very Vanilla circle to the Poppy Parade scallop. I then adhered it to a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. I added this to the Blushing Bride and adhered to the base card. I finished by punching a small flower using the Itty Bitty Small flower punch and adhered it to the base card. On the small flower I added a small punched circle.
