KCC #596 {ALL OCCASIONS}

I decided to get messy with this card. I dug out my inks, sponge brushes and had some fun making a scenery card for this challenge :) There are SO many different scenes/color combos you could use with the stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey called "Lakeside." 

Here's a close up of my card:

KCC #595 {Clean and Simple Birthday}

 


Welcome to "Krafty Chicks Thursday." 

This is our "CLEAN & SIMPLE" week, hosted by miss Diane. I am finding myself doing more and more Clean and Simple cards these days. Don't get me wrong, I still love a good multi-layer card filled with dimensions and texture, but these are nice to whip up when you are low on time ;) I really love going through the gallery of CAS week for lots of inspiring ideas.

KCC #595 {CLEAN & SIMPLE}

This card was made using this super cute die (not sure where it's from) and the Sending You Thoughts stamp set from Stampin' Up! I punched out a yellow sun and give it a bit of ink around the edges and that's about it. If a person wanted to, they could make a sponged background for added depth and color, but I decided to go the very CAS route.

This is our "STAMP ACT" week, hosted by miss Leanne, so as long as you have some sort of stamping on your project (rubber or digi), you are good to go. 

Before I get to my card, I'd like to take a moment to welcome Kylie to the hen house this month as our Guest Designer! So happy you could join us! 

KCC #588 {STAMP ACT}

I fell in love with this stamp set and matching dies from Stampin' Up! the instant I saw it and I knew there would be so many different ways to create with it. I volunteered at work to make our customers Christmas cards and I knew I wanted to use this set. The cards I made for them were identical to this one, except I didn't use the lines of gemstones on the top and bottom of the middle panel. 

I CASE'd my idea from Chris Smith (click here) and tweaked mine a bit...I had a friend over last weekend to make cards, and she did an AMAZING scene with the stamps and dies - so versatile!

Here's a close up:


Materials:

Peaceful Cabin stamp set and Cabin Dies set; Oh Deer! designer paper, whisper white and basic black cardstock; basic black ink, dimensionals and gems.
