VSN 8pm challenge

For my first participation in a Virtual Stamp Night hosted on SCS, I made this card for Friday's 8 pm challenge. The criteria was to use the colors: Kraft, So Saffron and Cameo Coral.

I used Papertrey Ink's kraft card stock for the card base. I used So Saffron for the vase and Cameo Coral for the daisies and I cut these shapes using some Marvy Uchida paper punches. For the daisy centers, I used So Saffron and a mini circle punch. Sentiment is from the Penny Black "Critter Party" stamp set. I stamped it using Cameo Coral ink and cut it out using the Word Window Punch from Stampin Up. I used a corner rounder punch on the bottom corners of the card base.

Mojo Monday 137

This weekend, I had a chance to get crafty and make a card for the Mojo Monday 137 sketch.

For the focal image panel, I used some scrap paper to hand cut some clouds to use for a mask. After placing them onto the white card stock, I sponged on the sea breeze ink to make the sky background. I used Verve Stamps' Miracles Blossom stamp set for the focal image on this card. I stamped the flower stems directly onto the panel and colored them with markers. I also added some streaks of grass to ground the image. I stamped, colored, cut and adhered the flowers to the panel. The sentiment is from Say it With Flowers from GKD. I embossed the strip of card stock with the Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and added ribbon that to tie in the color of the flowers and brads.
