Two for You!

What a busy Friday! An Our Daily Bread design, Stamp Simply CAS/B&W, and info on the second day of JustRite's Mega Blog Hop!

My first design is featuring Our Daily Bread design's "Get Well" stamp set. ODBD's stamps are deeply etched rubber, perfect for creating a crisp image or sentiment. I stamped my Proverbs 17:22 Bible verse with Versafine Sepia ink, embossing it with Stampin' Up's Clear EP. Spellbinder's Oval dies were used to die cut the sentiment panel.

My card base is PaperTrey Ink's Berry Sorbet cardstock, layered with gorgeous K & Co. Wild Raspberry decorator papers. My blossom was created with Spellbinder's Peony dies. A Stampin' Up Build a Brad finishes the flower's center. A swath of PTI Berry Sorbet grosgrain adds a pretty touch. On to my next design:

Today is also a Stamp Simply challenge day! Sharon challenged us to make a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using only black or brown ink--no coloring. I decided to go monochromatic with my most recent Stampin' Up order.

I began with PaperTrey Ink's True Black cardstock, creating a top fold design with my ScorPal. Layers of SU "Night & Day" dp make up my crisp and clean background.

I stamped the SU "Compliments to the Chef" silverware on PTI Stamper's Select White cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx ink. A Spellbinder's Rectangle die was used to cut the image panel, then popped up with dimensional tape.

This design is all paper...nothing extra! Super simple for mailing!

Just this week I just spent some time playing with that gorgeous raspberry paper and love the look. Your cards are great, simple, clean lines but still eye catching. Thanks for sharing.

I LOOOOVE your style! The first card, using the peony flower die, is beautiful in my book - I have those papers, and I'm really really inspired! The CAS card is exactly that -- plus elegant! So glad I stopped in !!
