Simon Says Stamps "Anything Goes" Wednesday Challenge, Less is More Challenge-Sprays/Mists, a CAS on Sunday Blog Challenge #66-Splash and my last two cards for the Card Set I Created

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend and are refreshed to start a new week. Just think, next week is a holiday in the U.S. and it is a three day weekend. I, for one, am excited!

Today I am sharing my last two cards that I created. I know, it is has taken me eons to finish it. I just have a difficult time using the same stamp set to make so many. I get bored easily!!

For my first card, I decided to use purple as the base of my card. I then scored the front every inch. After, I splashed it with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Spray, Picket Fence Distress Spray and a touch of gold Color Shine.

I then layered a Lemon Tart and Limeade Square die cut with Papertrey Ink's "Limitless Layer Square" dies. I then added a white square over it that I had used my quilt pieces on.

To finish the card, I used foam adhesive to adhere the colander of cherries to the top. Simple, simple, simple!!

  • I am entering this card into Simon Says Stamps "Anything Goes" Wednesday Challenge.

My last card in the set was just a simple design using Papertrey Ink's "Quilted: Summer" stamps and ink. 

I just die cut the quilt and use Lemon Tart, Limeade Ice, and Melon Berry Ink, as well as Blossomsberry for the purple to stamp the quilt blocks. I adhered the little "quilt" to the front of the card and stamped the sentiment in Smokey Shadow.

To finish the card off, I die cut, stamped and adhered some flowers from the same set to the top left corner of the quilt. I nestled a few sequins around the flowers for a soft shine.

I want to thank you all for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful Monday!!

I am so excited about Labor Day weekend too! I'll have 3 day off with a half day of work this Friday and my husband and I are doing a little mini road trip down south to visit a few friends whom we haven't seen in a long time! So excited! :)

I love, love, love your first card! I think it's because of the ink splatters and those fun frames! It's just too sweet and pretty! And, I also LOVE cherries! :D Even though the first card is my favorite, I still think your second card makes a lovely card. I love the fun patterned play and the bright colors!
