Clean & Simple Stamping

I’ve been having some fun at the Virtual Stamp Night at Splitcoaststampers with the theme of “Opposites” for the event. This challenge was to create 2 mini cards with a his and hers theme. The cake is from Stampin’ Up! and the numbers in the side bar are from one of the monthly kits at Simon Says Stamp June 2013. The sketch is using the Clean&Simple Stamping FTL256.

Stampin' Up!

Stampin’ Up! had a great set from Sale-a-bration called Patterned Occasions. I find myself reaching for this set more lately as the sentiment & image are together in one image. Ink and stamp. How simple is that?

I used the Clean & Simple Stamping sketch FTL#252, the CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC111 to use buttons and the 2nd challenge at Opposites Attract Virtual Stamp Night at Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was a cool one – use the same stamp set to make a masculine and feminine card by just changing the colors and embellishments. I knew the elephant would work great!

Crafters Digital Art Center (CDAC) has a really fun progressive challenge that is sponsored by different artists each time. This image is from Shelly’s Images and can be found on her site.

My card uses her image colored using Copics and the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping #232. I used a little washi tape to back the handwritten sentiment. Thanks for stopping by!
