I am so excited I got together with Nicole and we had our best day ever crafting together. Not only were feeling the mojo but we managed to whip out some cards!!!
We played along with FOUR differnent challenges and up first is...
Retro Sketches and Play Date Cafe
We used Retro Sketches layout with Play Date Cafe's color scheme.
I used Jars Of Sweets Stamp Set from Sweet Stamp Shop and stamped a jar on acetate. It fit perfectly into the wood frame! I love how elegant this card turned out yet has feel of simplicity with clean lines :)
I loved so many different patterned papers and also wanted to get the right gradient I needed to give some seperation between the patterns, so, in order to do that I went with a solid cream cardstock and a long card to be able expose more patten. This is a fun way to incorporate LOTS of pattern without being overwhelmed.
I was a little stumped on this one at first. What I started out doing wasn't quite feeling it. Then Nicole whipped out the City Scape stamp set and suggested the buildings...then it all came together! I couldn't be more happy with the way it turned out and definitely is my favorite out of the bunch. I just love the way this turned out.
Ok, cool huh??? I used Hero Arts Neon inks for the background AND for the buildings. It is so bright and really makes a pop. What do you think?
