Hey guys, there is a new challenge up on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. It is my very favorite kind of card, Clean and Simple.
My card started with Neenah Desert Storm card stock cut into a top folding card base. I then used the Snarky Mix & Match Messages from Hero Arts to stamp the greetings with four colors of ink. Then masked the greetings and stamped the stripes. This was simpler by using the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. Finally I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops for an accent. The color of the drops didn't show up so I colored them with a tan permanent marker.
My hubby was giving me a hard time about how plain my first card was. So that is like a challenge for me to step my game up a little. My second card uses Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I started by using the smooth side of the panel and stamping out the greeting from the same Hero Arts set in Versafine black ink. The cake plate and candles are from the Birthday Wishes set from The Stamp Market also stamped in black ink. Then I took watercolor pens and painted in the rainbow stripes. I added a little yellow and Wink of Stella to the candle flames. I trimmed a little off of my panel and mounted it to a top folding, A2 black card base. This technically is not CAS but I wanted to show you options for the Hero Arts Snarky Mix & Match Messages.There is a $50 dollar Simon Says Stamp voucher up for grabs by entering your own Clean and Simple card on the Wednesday Challenge.
