Sunday Kick Back

This is for the color challenge over at Stamp TV; white, moonlit fog, mango.  I used the GKD stamp sets Picture It and Vintage Backgrounds.  I wasn't real sure about these colors at first, but the completed card isn't half bad.  The bottom border is my new PTI cutter Banner Borders.




I have come across another fun challenge site.  Less is More.  I am completely in love with CAS cards - they are fun and easy to make and they really are awesome cards when made correctly.  I am thrilled to have found another CAS challenge site so I can make my fun CAS cards at least once a week!  The challenge this week is a tree or flower with a sentiment.  I instantly thought of my MFP set A Walk in the Woods and the masking sponging effect -- I love that look too.  Face it I just enjoy these cards period! :)




I'm jumping in here with another CAS card challenge.  I almost forgot about my favorite OLW -40!  This week is hard - 2 images only - nothing else, but you can color your images.  I think I did okay.  Gotta love a wood stamp that has 3 images on it :) --- hey, what can I say - if I can't use a sentiment I need more than 2 images! I used PTI Turning a New Leaf, and a Hero Arts that I don't know the name of.

That's it for my cards today.  I have spent the last few hours organizing my stamps -- than what I wanted to do didn't work!  What a waste of time - I could of been STAMPING!  Have a great day~~ and, thanks for stopping by --

Wow! Outstanding job on all three beautiful cards, Vicki! Terrific job with the color challenge, in particular.

Vicki...all three cards are fabulous! I really love the sympathy card. I still have a little trouble with the sponging. Can't seem to get my color even enough.

Three fabulous creations, Vicki! It's amazing how a clean crisp one layer card can be so elegant and beautiful! All three beautifully done! TFS!

Vicki, I really like them all but it wouldn't surprise you if I said the tree on the green rectangle is my favourite. The graded sponging, the lovely tree balanced perfectly with the sentiment. Superb job.

Marisa said...

These are fabulous, Vicki! Love the polka dots on the first one and the two CAS cards are great!

Great cards Vicki, but I have to admit that the card for our challenge is my favourite!
I love the colours within the sponging and the overlap of the sentiment makes for perfect balance.
I am delighted that you have joined us and hope that you will be a regular contributor to our challenges!
