Upsy Daisy part 1

Good Morning!! I have a few more cards to share with you for the 5 card challenge. I'm curious if any of you have decided to challenge yourselves as well? I can tell you it is quite fun to try to look at your stamps in a different way. Alot of the stamps I have I got because I saw "THE CARD" and wanted to just make it. Now I am trying to stretch my creative legs alittle to see what else I can make with all the wonderful stamps I have...

I was so excited to get this set and so far it seems justified!! I'm just loving the looks you can create with this bold, solid image.


My first card was inspired by pchefcindyw on SCS - here is her card. I changed a few things to help make it more mine. I flipped the card on it's side and changed the sentiment and the location of it. I stamped the image a total of four times without re-inking it to really give a look of depth to the image. I really love this monotone color pallete. I'm also loving the Prestwick DS paper. I am thinking of doing this same design in some other monotone colors.


The second card was what I came up with after seeing rohla's card on SCS - here is her card. I wanted to make it a little more me so I changed the direction of the card as well as the ribbon and sentiment. I also used my Sanded background stamp in Tangerine Tango on the card. Coloring on this stamp was loads of fun! I started with the Pumpking Pie marker and then used Always Artichoke for the stems and finished off with Really Rust for the tips. I also used the Thumping technique to add the Really Rust color.

Both of your cards are fantastic!!!! I am doing this challenge as well but am not focusing on one particular set but all of my sets at one time. Maybe I should just stick to one set at a time...hm...
