Happy hello

I made these two Clean and Simple cards for the CAS #52 challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. A sketch challenge - were were to be inspired by this cute card by kmahany.

For the "Happy Hello" card - the flower and sentiment are from Fiskars - "Just between Friends". I first stamped the flower in Summer Sun and then rock n rolled it into Pumpkin Pie ink. Cut out the flowers and attached the bright yellow buttons. I just purchased the large scalloped "ek success" embossed curve edger punch today from Michael's (used my 50% discount coupon). I cut a smaller white panel and placed my flowers and ribbon onto it. Popped up the panel. The sentiment is stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink... I am very happy with how this one turned out.

For the "oh HAPPY day! card - I stamped the flower/square image (Kolette Hall $1.50 stamp) with stazon jet black ink. I turned the stamp in three different directions. Water coloured the square with Blush Blossom ink, coloured the flower with Prisma colour pencil crayon - terra cotta and blended with gamsol. Added the 1/2 black pearls. The textured gingham paper is from DCWV - Farmers Market. I cut a strip of Blush Blossom and used my Stampin Up scalloped border punch across the bottom, layered gingham over- top. Stamped sentiment (Fiskars - Just between Friends) with Stazon Jet Black ink. Made and little black satin bow and glued on. I pleased with this one as well.

Thanks for stopping in.
Happy stamping and creating.
Hugs - Pat
