CAS and vintage not so much...

Okay, ready for 2 more cards?  Then I'll just have one more post, so I do hope you'll forgive me putting 2 cards in 1!  Otherwise I won't get anything else done online today that "needs" to be done! ;)

Here's the first card~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~




For this card I used patterned paper and a doily from my stash, image stamps from Prima, sentiment stamp by Memory Makers, rhinestones by Studio 112, scallop die cut by Spellbinders, and all other supplies are from Stampin' Up!.

Vintage is hard for me to pull off, but I do have quite a few stamps that are considered of the vintage persuasion.  These Prima stamps have been sitting next to my desk begging to be used, so I knew that I had to incorporate them somehow!  This paper has been sitting in my scrap drawer for months, too!  All in all, this card was just waiting to be organized! :)

Here's the second card~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~




I've used a sentiment stamp by Inspired By Stamping, liquid pearls by Ranger, and all other supplies are from Stampin' Up!.

I was really inspired by the CAS design of the card over at Muse.  I loved the way the flowers seemed to enhance the sentiment and so that is what I went for with my creation.  These colors made me think of a more Asian influence, so I pulled out some stamps lurking at the back of my stamp cabinet that had that style.  I added some sparkle and shine with glitter glue and liquid pearls to enhance the one layerness of my card. :)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  I do hope you've been inspired to create something today and that you'll come join in all these amazing challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
