Clean & Simple 132


I really liked this week's sketch FLT 132 from Clean & Simple Stamping blog, so I made 3 cards in an afternoon for the challenge!


For this 1st card the flower images are from a Flourishes stamp set which doesn't seem to have a name - it's a large sheet with lots of flowery images, the sentiment is from another Flourishes stamp set called 'Many Sentiments'. I coloured the flowers with Copic and Prismacolor markers and added a little Kindy Glitz for some shimmer. The patterned paper is by Kaisercraft, the little crocheted flower is Stampin' Up.


For this card I stamped a Penny Black 'Brush Balloon' 3 times, coloured them with Copic Markers and added some glitter over them. The patterned paper is by Heidi Grace and the sentiment is another one from the Flourishes 'Many Sentiments' stamp set.



I turned the sketch upside down for this card. I stamped Stamp-It 'Gumnut Brush' in Stampin' Up white craft ink on SU Kraft cardstock, the sentiment is from a Stamp-It sentiment set. The patterned paper is some really old stuff from Making Memories (2006!)

Hope you like these simple cards, I'll definitely be using this sketch again!

I love the gum-nut card Lyn! I have never had too much success with Stampin-up white but here, with this stamp it works beautifully.

Three amazing cards Lyn!! Love the sentiments you've used too! You might enjoy the Less Is More CAS challenge every Saturday in the UK!
I enjoyed seeing all your AnnaBelle cards during March what a great addition to the team you were.
Take care x

Talk about 3 beautiful cards! The first one is lovely with that wonderful white flower! The second is just so pretty and you can even see the sparkle on the balloons. The third is so warm and elegant too!
