Clean and Simple Sunday #25-2016

Hi, after a brief break, we are back on schedule.  I will be posting on the blog for the time being while Theresa takes a little time off.  I hope I can keep this blog as well as she did and know that the design team Theresa put together does an awesome job.  All I have to do is post their great creations.

This week we will welcome new designers Kimberly and Robbie to the design team.

Today's post is all about the Flowers, so let's see what Kimberly and Robbie did.

First is Kimberly - 

This card is full of supplies from Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval (SOA) goodness.
I used the Birthday Journal Card Die from Sugar Pea Designs to cut the scalloped rectangle with black cardstock.  Then I used the stitched rectangle die to cut the white cardstock.  The beautiful floral/leave image is from Gina K. (SOA Beautiful World Collection)  The image is stamped with Hero Arts Ombre Neon Ink (chartreuse to blue).
The sentiment is from the same SOA collection, CAS-UAL Fridays "All About You"  stamp set.  Assemble the card as shown and add sequin and pearl embellishments.  Adhere to a A2 size card base. 

Now up is Robbie - 

I love CAS cards and I just got some new flower stamps.  All supplies are from Stampin’ Up.  I began by stamping my flower using the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set.  Each petal is individual so you stamp the first petal, then turn your card 90 degrees and stamp the petal again, then rotate 90 degrees and stamp the petal, and finally rotate 90 degrees and stamp the last petal – you are working in a circle.  This is also a 3 step stamp set so I stamped the bottom layer with Wisteria Wonder, the second layer with Perfect Plum, and the outline layer with Elegant Eggplant.  I took my Basic rhinestones and used the largest size and put in the center of the flower.  I then used the middle size rhinestone to form a ring around the large rhinestone.  I used the sentiment from the same set and stamped it in Elegant Eggplant.  Using the Tags & Labels framelits and my Big Shot I cut out the sentiment and a larger size of the same shape from Elegant Eggplant.  The sentiment was attached to larger shape and then added to the card front in the lower left hand corner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish off the card I wrapped Some Elegant Eggplant baker’s twine around the top of the card twice and tied a bow.  My card was complete! ~ Robbie

Both are great cards and I love how the clean look of each is perfect.  We will see more great designs tomorrow.  - Denise
