Stamping 411 & Clean & Simple w/ SU

This sketch is from Stampin 411 - perfect for a CAS card!  I also used the colors from Colour Q - do I love this site -- YES!  Just amazing color choices they choose.  My sentiment is from the newly released Mark's Finest Papers stamp set Seasonal Poinsettias.  2 different cuttlebug embossing folders were used to add some texture.


This sketch is from Clean & Simple #112 - very similar to the one above, but yet different.  I adore these CAS sketches.  I adore CAS cards!  Quick and easy to create~~.  I used the colors from Janice's STV color challenge - wonderful colors together!  I am also using this card for my first Stampin Up Only challenge.  I have so many SU sets that haven't seen the light of day (this sentiment is from 1995!) - I like the way SU stamps stamp, clean and crisp.   SU challenge this week was to use material - another first for me - my scallops are FELT!  Cut like butter with my nesties.  How fun is that! A few buttons and a punch of ferns and this is good to go!
I am off - hair cut today - YAY!  I'll be back tonight with my STV sketch and Stampin B's challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by~~

Love the double embossing on the first card and the buttons with the pine bows on the second. Two great cards :)

I love the look of the felt on the 2nd card--that font on the sentiment reminds me of A Christmas Carol--nice work. :) Thanks for playing with us at SUO Challenges--I hope you'll play again!
