Clean & Simple Pals Challenge

Here today with a quick simple card for the Pals Clean & Simple Challenge this weekend. I using a monochromatic theme for simple cards. I chose a simple flower design from one of my favorite new stamp sets "Flower Shop" on pg 94 of annual SU catalog. I stamped my image with Tangerine Tango ink onto the coordinating SU cardstock. This stamp set coordinates with the new Pansy Punch so I was able to create my flower lickity split. LOVE that!

My sentiment is from "A Dozen Thoughts". This stamp set really delivers great sentiments and the fonts are to die for. I created an envelope liner out of Quatrefancy Specialty DSP to give you a sneek peek of the new envelope liners framelits dies that will be available in the Holiday Catalog on August 1st.

Thanks so much for stopping by my happy place. Have a great weekend!

Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge #162

Todays color combo was inspired by the current Pals Paper Arts Challenge going on this week.

My husband's birthday is right around the corner and I thought this card would fit the bill. He is patriotic at heart so the red, white and blue color combo is perfect. I had to make some substitutions for colors I didn't have but hopefully that will be okay. :)

Happy Stamping!
