Clean and Simple

I seem to have been in a card making mode lately. I'm really enjoying it and since I've found the Clean and Simple blogspot that gives me awesome sketch designs, it take almost no time to have a beautifully constructed card in my hand. {I will confess...sometimes when I get a card finished, I love it so much, I want to keep it...but, Hallo! (as my adorable little granddaughter says)...I'm making them to give away!!}

This first card is for the Clean and Simple fall-to layout #100. I used their awesome sketch and had this card finished in about 10 minutes! YAY!!

I used white cardstock for the base. Cut a little off the front of the card, then punched the edge with a MS border punch. Then I added the soft teal on the bottom and scored a couple of lines on it. Tied a ribbon around the top of the card...and stamped a sentiment on the bottom of the white in a teal ink. Ahhhh...this card makes me happy!

Here's the sketch:

This second card is for the Clean and Simple fall-to layout #101. As usual, I'm a little behind in my cardmaking.

I used a soft green textured cardstock for the card base. Added a green polka dot paper backed with white and a dark orange. The sentiment is a PTI stamp. The peaches are a Flourishes stamp that I colored with my Copic markers and then cut it out. I also popped the peaches and the sentiment stamped on white on pop dots for a little dimension. The cut the shaped sentiment and background piece with Spellbinders Labels 11 dies. I love the way this came out! And here's the sketch:

I've had a little fun today. Why don't you hop over to the Clean and Simple blogspot and check out all of their great sketches...you won't be disappointed!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Leave a comment...It makes me smile! Until next time....

Hugs!

I love the CAS blog too and try to particapate in all their weekly challenges. You did a great job on both these. The first card has a refreshing color pallette and I love the peaches on the second card.
