One Clean & Simple Sketch, Two Cards

Looking for some inspiration for cards, I went to the Clean & Simple Stamping blog to look at their old sketches.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were back online!  I have always loved their sketches. I have used them for many of my cards.

I made two cards using this week's sketch.  I am happy with both, but think the Night in Bethlehem card is my favorite of the two.  This card came together quickly and would work great for making a large quantity.  The colors in this card are Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, and Whisper White. I added a few rhinestones for a little bling.

My second card uses the Painted Harvest stamp set.  This was my first time using this set.  The sunflowers are stamped in So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede and Early Espresso.  The fern leaves are Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  I stamped the acorns in Sahara Sand and Soft Suede.  I tied a little Linen Twine around the card and then finished it off with a leaf and acorn popped up on dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin',
