Two Cards in One Day!

Wow! I actually got to make two cards in one day! Quite a feat for me, since I rarely get to stamp for fun. Seems I'm always "working" on something. Guess that's why I LOVE my work so much, since it always involves papercrafting!! But today I got to stamp just for me. I participated in three challenges: the Featured Stamper Challenge FS111 over at Splitcoast, Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge WSC73, and the Color Throwdown Challenge CTD34. The first card is for the Featured Stamper Challenge. I chose to CASE Beate's card Krafty Dots. It's kind of intimidating to CASE such an expert stamper as Beate. She's been posting her cards since 2003! I didn't even start stamping until 2006 and I didn't start posting until 2008! So here is my feeble attempt:

For my Technique club on Tuesday night, I want to show my gals different ways to use re-inkers, so I colored this white flower from the SU! Pretties kit with So Saffron ink. I love the "sunflower" look it has. The sentiment comes from Morning Soft and the background was made using En Francais and Baroque Motifs. I think I've used that set so often I've practically damaged the rubber! The colors are Kraft, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. Ink is Chocolate Chip and Sahara Sand.

This next card is the Weekend Sketch Challenge and the Color Throwdown Challenge:
Fun sketch and fabulous color combo of Blush Blossom, Kiwi Kiss and Not Quite Navy. I also added Chocolate Chip as a nuetral. This set is called Forest Friends and will be available April 1st from the SU! Occasions Mini Catalog. The sentiment is from the Level 1 Hostess set called Sweet Little Sentiments. I can't quite see it in the picture, but the Kiwi background is embossed with the Little Dots SU! Texturz plate and the NQN panel is embossed with the Large Dots plate. I love that SU! is selling the embossing plates now. I love the texture they add to cards. And it's such a simple technique! I love simple too.
Hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did.
Stamping, stamping and more stamping!
