Another card that I made for a challenge again today, and I ended up featuring the Quiet Meadow stamp set again. It seems to be a current favourite! I do like the different elements in this set, which combine so beautifully with many other stamps.
My card uses the largest die from the Beautiful Leaves Dies as a background behind the flowers.
The flowers from Quiet Meadows have been coloured using an Aqua Brush with inks, and then fussy cut (the dies will be in my next order!!) and I have used some of the leaves from Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set to complete my posy of flowers. I have added a few splodges of colour, very lightly to add a little more of the pretty Pale Papaya colour.
I enjoy making all sorts of different styles of cards, in particular, I love making vintage style cards. But sometimes I also love to make Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, and sometimes I like to make them very clean!!
This card is a colour challenge from CAS Colours and Sketches challenges, using the colours below. I used Stampin’ Write markers to colour directly to the stamp, using the three colours on the one stamp. Originally, I had planned to add a sentiment and perhaps a few splotches, but in the end I decided I liked it just like that.
What do you think? Would you have added more to it? Leave me a comment and let me know. Happy stamping!
Clean and Simple (CAS) is a style of card that heaps of people find challenging, I think it’s those blank, open, white spaces. We feel as though we need to fill the spaces with something. Well, I do. I think I’m getting better at them though. I’m starting to enjoy the simplicity of a CAS design.
We are having an Autumn Challenge this fortnight at The Male Room.
And while the weather over in the Northern Hemisphere is cooling down for Autumn, here in Australia it is definitely feeling like Spring. Not quite warm enough for a swim at the beach, but I don’t think it will be long 🙂
My card for this challenge is a Clean and Simple (CAS) card, featuring one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! stamp sets….
Lovely As A Tree – yep, an oldie but a goodie, it has been around so long, and it is so very versatile. And the splodges of colour are a stamp from the Work of Art stamp set.
Lots of Autumn inspiration from the rest of the Design Team at The Male Room, so make sure you pop on over and have a look. And why not join in and share your Autumn projects with us.
