White on White

This week the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is White on White.  The design team have made some incredible samples to inspire, and inspired I was!  I actually managed two cards.

My first one was textured

White on White #1


I started by embossing the base card with a Sizzix woodgrain folder.  I added some trellis die cuts by Memory Box.  The flower is a Tim Holtz Poinsettia die cut that I embossed with a texture folder.  I used a large white brad to hold it together.  I cut a banner with a Die-namics die and stamped a sentiment from Hastings Rubber Stamps (a New Zealand stamp manufacturer)

My second card was a very quick CAS card.

Beauty.

I started by stamping the sentiment from Simon Says stamp and then drew the frame.  I die cut the branches with a Memory Box Die (thanks Paula for this lovely die) and the flowers are punched with an unknown punch.  I added some pearls to finish.

 I was really pleased to get these two cards made quite quickly... I've been in a bit of a funk this week, not really feeling that enthused to create but seeing the Simon Says blog really got me thinking.  I've even adapted my second card for CAS-ology's red challenge.   Just need to take a photo in the morning. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
