CAS07: Punched Blooms


The Clean and Simple challenge for today was posted late last night so I was able to play but knew I wouldn’t upload until today (I’m on my lunch break on my laptop). I am so excited about the Marvy Flower punches I got from Gina K Designs which coordinate with the Bold Flowers from the Floral Frenzy stampTV kit. If you’re not interested in purchasing the whole kit, never fear…the sets will be available to purchase separately after the new kit debuts.

CAS07 punched blooms

CAS07 is to use Punches but keep it Clean and Simple still! I grabbed a few bright colors {Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun and Pink Passion} to stamp my flowers and punch, adding a coordinating Fire rhinestone brads by SU! on top of a 3/4” Black Onyx center. To tie in the black, I stamped my sentiment from Tag Lines and outlined the flowers with a black pen. I used Kurtis' sketch challenge {STVSC4} at stampTV for this card too!

stepped up CAS07 punches

Since I loved those colors so much, and it never hurts to do 2 cards in one sitting rather than just one, I decided to include a slightly stepped-up card. I love the pop of black, so I used the larger flower punch for a black onyx layer. The centers of these flowers to add more white accents are white metal dots I got at Joanne’s last year. Of course I had to add some embossing since that is a no-no with CAS but since this is MY stepped-up card it was o.k.!! I added a few swatches of ribbon {pumpkin twill and pink grosgrain} from Taylored Expressions to coordinate and chose to use another punch for my sentiment from the set. I just love BOTH cards!!

P.S. if you would like to see a bigger view of the cards I post, you can click on them.
