It's Monday and that means it's time for another Clean and Simple post. My time on the Design Team at Clean and Simple Cards Challenge on Splitcoaststampers has ended today, and it has been a dream! There is nothing like making a certain type of card on a regular basis to hone down or improve those skills. I've had a blast on the team and I've learned to really enjoy simple cards. Hope you have too.
This week the challenge is The Great Outdoors.
I began with a color combo that was a fav of mine for a long time. For my bridal shower gift my MIL was going to buy us a bedspread and she asked about colors. Mind you, I was young and there was NO SUCH thing as bridal registry when everything is planned out, lol! I said these exact words. "I'd like it to be green for the trees, blue for the sky, and white for clouds." I admit, that yes, I was naive in my tastes and idealistic but you know what? She found me a bedspread with not only those colors, but those images in a large pattern. I knew then she was an amazing woman. She is.
OK, back to the card - these colors mean outdoors to me. I inked up the tree with markers, stamped and cut it out, and popped it up on patterned paper. The clouds were punched out using the muffin top of the Cupcake Punch. Couldn't be easier.
I will continue to make cards for this challenge, so you can bet you'll see them! As a matter of fact, tomorrow's card will be my other sample for this theme, and my favorite of my CAS designs EVER! You won't want to miss it.
I'm going to get out in the wild outdoors myself today. Hope you have a happy day, thanks for visiting!
