Clean and Simple Sunday #8-2017

We continue with our additional February challenge to use one paper pad or kit for the whole week.

Gracie starts out her week with an adorable girl.

Our challenge  this week not only includes the daily challenges  but also to use the same paper pad or kit. I chose Basic Gray's Oh Boy stack that I have had quite a while in my stash.  Today's challenge is also anything goes.  I started with a purchased digital image and colored her with Crayola pencils. I touched up the lollipops with clear Wink of Stella.  I picked green polka-dot paper (who isn't cheered up with polka-dots) for my panel and a piece of opaque vellum.  I picked another paper (orange) from the pad and mounted my sentiment I printed on my computer.  I added some rhinestones and now she is ready to cheer a little girl. ~ Gracie  

I start with a quick card -

This week I am using a stack by DCWV called The White Ginger Collection.  I took a page that had a tone on tone small grid pattern and stamped my image and sentiment on it. The stamps came from Unity and the set is called ...Let Your Wishes Fly.  I colored the wings with a Spectrum Noir marker and then went over it with Wink of Stella to make it shine.  I then tore around it and mounted it on another of the papers from the pad that has foil accents. - Denise

Inspiration Saturday #7-2017

Photo inspiration for today -

Tantalya wraps up her week with a clever use of stamps in her card.

This is the one and only card I didn't use paper from the paper pad.  Instead I used distress inks and a stencil to create the rainbow colored effect. I took the colors from the inspiration photo and then took a big thanks and embossed it with  Nuvo Gold Enchantment. and added some enamel dots to finish it off. - Tantalaya

I finish with my paper pad -

I took the layers of colors in the picture going from yellow to blue and replicated them with the patterns from my pad.  I put an enamel dot in the middle and matted it with the same paper as the center.  The sentiment stamped and embossed in blue and the quick Thank You note was done. - Denise

C.A.S.E A Card Friday #7-2017

Today's C.A.S.E. card features a punched border.

Tantalaya's card features more calming muted colors.

C.A.S.E. Card challenge. On this one I changed the color theme of the card from rainbow to more muted tones of my paper pad so the based was changed from white to craft card stock. I then choose 6 different pattern papers and cut them at 1 inch. I then took the craft color paper and cut it so I could use my x-cut border punch. I then attached the pattern paper to the two pieces of card stock. Once attached, I used my paper and attached my black brads.  I then took some foam thicker sentiment my love and covered it with clear wink of Stella. To finish it off I added the heart from the same Thickers and glittered it up with wink of Stella also.- Tantalaya

My card also changed up the colors.

To make my card I cut a strip off the front of a cream card base and used a Martha Stewart punch that looks like eyelet to go with the country theme of my paper.  I choose five different papers and cut them into strips.  I decided it would be easier to attach them to the inside of the card, so I cut a piece of acetate and glued it to the front of the card from the back and then glued on the bottom strip to the bottom of the acetate.  This allowed it to be a clear window to see the strips through.  I added some pearls and stamped the sentiment on the front.  I really need to use more acetate because I like the look of seeing through into the inside of the card. - Denise
