"Two-Fer" Day

I actually have eight cards made that I have not shared on my blog - amazing!  It's been fun having time to get some cards made.  Because I have several to share, I think I'll give you two today:)

This first one was made for the Clean and Simple (CAS) challenge for this week on SplitCoastStampers.  The challenge was to use teal, white, and one other color.  My "other color" was black.  I got some Sizzix texture plates a while ago at a local paper store and hadn't used them yet.  I finally used the heart one (see below) and still had it out on my table, so I used the reverse side for these flowers.  The paper I used is textured paper I got in a scrap pack quite a while ago from Target.  I matted it with Basic Black from Stampin' Up!  The flowers are from a bottle of Primas from Michael's and I used a black brad for the center.  The sentiment is from Gina K's Elegant Post set and is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

Just a simple Valentine's Day card for this second one.  As I said above, the embossing is done with a Sizzix texture plate.  I used Real Red cardstock.  The ribbon is Christmas ribbon from Martha Stewart.  Works for me!  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado, and the card base is from a box of textured cards from Die Cuts With a View.

Thanks so much for stoppping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Love them both! Those embossing plates are very pretty. Tim Holtz is releasing some FANTASTIC embossing plates for Sizzix so I'm asking Cupid for a Sizzix to set next to my Cuttlebug. You are the "Mistress of Elegant Cards"!

Hugs,
Barb

Lynette, I love your CAS cards with those wonderful texture plates and great color combos. You do such a wonderful job with the CAS style. Oh, how I wish I could do so well!

Both cards are great. The Valentine one gave me an idea for using one of the CB Romance folders that has a nice heart design on it.
