Clean and Simple Challenges

I have been so busy finishing up my Blog Hop earlier in the week, and getting ready for my Therapy Sessions... a.k.a Card Party this weekend, that I just about missed a couple of fun challenges!!  So, in the interest of time, I made these cards Clean and Simple, with no frills.  Well, a little of that has to do with the fact that I have all of my fun tools packed already for class, so I was limited on supplies to work with!

So, for the first challenge card I created tonight, The Paper Players, wanted us to use three colors.


I pulled out a fun set that I had never used, and now I can think of so many uses for it.  You're My Type is a great little stamp set, but unfortunately it is discontinued.  Sure glad I got it when I did!

The beautiful background paper is from our new Festival of Prints DSP Paper Stack in the Holiday Mini!!!

Next, I wanted to play along with Naki and Nina's Double Dare Challenge #4 also.  These gals are so much fun.  They each pick a "rule" for their weekly challenge.  This week's rules were:

Naki's rule was to use only 1 stamp. We can use the image as many times as we'd like, but it can only be one image.

My choice was to use chevron stripes. I. Heart. Chevron. :)

So, I pulled out my Festival of Prints DSP Paper Stack once again, and decided to work with the awesome Chevron Design.  Well, when I was looking for an image large enough to use only one stamp on the entire card, my Word Play set jumped out at me.  And of course, with a saying like that, you must have hearts, and the Jewels Basic Pearls gave just a little extra touch.

I softened it by sponging a little bit of Cherry Cobbler Ink around the edges.
