Happy Friday, peeps! I have two simple cards today, made while it snowing yesterday!! It was only flurries, but it was a wee bit of a surprise, considering it's mid-April! The first one is for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge; I was perusing my stamp sets, looking for one that hasn't been used in a while, and I came across Rooted in Nature. I thought it would make a great masculine birthday card with their sketch:
And here we go:
I colored some watercolor paper with Granny Apple Green, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry inks, then stamped the small leaf in Old Olive over top, and diecut them out with the Nature's Root dies.
I mounted them on squares of Very Vanilla, then mounted the squares on a Crumb Cake card base on which I stamped the larger tree, and embossed it with the Pinewood Planks EF! My final addition was a sentiment from Label Me Bold, stamped in Mossy Meadow!
My second card is a bit more whimsical; it uses the FMS sketch:
and I pulled out some fun papers featuring milk caps from Carta Bella called Country Kitchen, and made this simple card:
I stamped a sentiment from a much-neglected PTI set called Friends Til the End in Poppy Parade, then "stitched" the edges:
I punched out one of the milk caps and gave it a couple of diecut borders....don't you love how realistic this looks?! Love it!
Thanks so much for popping in today!
My brother gave us some tulips and narcissus from Longwood Gardens, so I shared them with Dana, and Cassidy went to work planting them! I always joke that my dad was a farmer and my grandfather was a florist, but those green thumb genes didn't pass down to me! Luckily, they seemed to have gone to Cass and Dana!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
