Clean and Simple

The theme for the Card Making World Monthly Challenge for August is Clean and Simple. As one of the DT I had to make 2 sample cards.

I bought some new stamps from Gina K Designs a couple of weeks ago and they arrived on Thursday last week. Of course I had to use them for this challenge and I was quite pleased with the results.

The first card was so simple but very effective. I made a mask using a scalloped oval nestabilities die and laid it on top of my base card. I then inked it with Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks. The stamp used is from the Garden Silhouettes Set (Gina K Designs) and I used Versafine Onyx Black for this image. The sentiment is from the Bold and Beautiful set.

This card uses stamps from the Garden Silhouettes set as well.

The layer card is from a matte set I bought years ago and had not really used many of the colours. I trimmed it to fit the base card with a little left over to back the sentiment piece.

I stamped the image using a Memento Rhubarb ink pad then cut the shape with an oval nestabilities die. I backed this with the scalloped oval die cut and layered it on the card.

The sentiment was from the same set stamped in Onyx Black (Versafine) and layered on the red and black layers.

I was so pleased with the effect of this card, I made another three in the same style but in different colours.

I love your cards. I have that same scalloped oval die cut. (Mine is just a punch out, though?..) Very nice. :)
