Too easy 96

I participated in this weeks Clean and Simple challenge.

As soon as I saw it and started reading some of the suggestions the girls had used, I knew I had half done this challenge already.

The images I have stamped onto the Very Vanilla card stock, are almost 2 years old. This is one of the first A4 sheets I stamped. Now normally when you do this you use it for making “Own DSP” or “One Sheet Wonder”.

I kind of never got around to using it.

With changes in the air as far as Colours are concerned at Stampin’ Up! I thought I might as well put this to good use.

What I like about making your own DSP, is that it always has 3-4 colours in it.

This is perfect when making multiple cards as you can easily change the colour of the base card and you have easily transfigured the feel of the card.

Add to that a different sentiment and the change is almost complete.

I say almost, because when I was making these cards, I had some leftover pieces of card that I just couldn’t resist throwing together.

The Vanilla card in the centre is what I came up with.

As per normal, my children like to comment on my cards (there is nothing like honesty), and they liked the vanilla card more.

It must be because they are used to seeing much more elaborate designs from me, but that certainly doesn’t mean that there is anything wrong with the other cards I have created.

Simply Friends

This is my creation for this weeks Clean and Simple ¬†Sketchtastically 83 challenge. It has given me an opportunity to ink up my new set “Vintage Vogue”. This is a new set, due to be released on April 1st with the introduction of the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.

One of the other¬†inclusions in the Mini Catalogue will be 3 new “In-Colours”.

I have used one of them here, it is called Rich Razzleberry, teaming it up with Pale Plum and Whisper White. I have also used the background stamp “En Francais”. The vintage look really lends itself to the rock and roll technique used on the flowers.

I carried thru the idea with this card, by changing the Base card and adding extra bling. Rhinestone Brads given a great focal point on the flowers, as well as the dimensionals giving the flowers added depth.
