Clean & Simple 146 & StampIT Cards Week

this is for several challenges this week. First, i loved the sketch challenge at the Clean & Simple blog. Second, i tried to do all stamping for the Stamp It Cards Week challenge over on the Moxie Fab blog.
The stamped background is from A Muse, Mad for Plaids. The papers are all several shades of soothing blues, PTI ocean tides, SU soft sky, and cool caribbean. And the inks are SU soft sky and PTI snow white. The sentiment is PTI Everyday Button Bits in PTI enchanted evening ink. I used my cropodile to make all the holes across the edges, and then added some PTI ocean tides buttons tied with PTI twine.

Pumpkin Daydreams

i went for a clean & simple card here. i tried to match the flower colors to the striped paper(SEI).

Blended Medallions

For this card, I blended SU Celery, Sage, & blue inks on the new PTI Medallion stamps, then spritzed it with water and stamped. The main sentiment has the sage sponged on the edges.

Dahlia Sympathy

Unfortunately, I needed some sympathy cards. So this is one that was quick, clean and simple. This is PTI's Berry Sorbet paper and ink, Jumbo Dahlia from Stampendous, Fillable Frames Additions sentiment, and SU God's Beauty set. I thought it needed a little bling, so I added red twinkles from A Muse.

Tooty Fruity Challenge

This is for the Unity Tooty Fruity Challenge. I just got this Pear of a Recipe stamp, and thought I would do the Spotlight technique. It wasn't until I had the whole card made(and glued) that I realized my spotlighted circle was just a hair off (the "p" doesn't line up with the "ear"). Oh well, I had fun making it! The spotlight is stamped in Memento Pear Tart, the perfect color for this!! Also used PTI spring moss paper, and PTI Take Three: Summer for the sentiment stamped in Snow. That is also a faux notepad top, I just set the guide on the Crop o dile, and punched holes at the same depth all the way across the paper.
I also love the smoky gray with the moss, my new fav color combo!

CFC #5 & Unity Friends with Flair

This one is probably a stretch for CASual Friday's sketch, altho I did get the strip across the top, and I tried to do the blooms in a half circle, but I got carried a way. I used SU old olive marker to do the stems and the blooms are AMuse blackberry. Then I misted it to give a watercolor effect, but I needed more, I think.
This is also for Unity's Friends with Flair. This is my first entry for Unity, and I am not sure what the requirements are. And a third Challenge from The Paper Players: Anything Goes.
ETA: oops, I forgot to put what stamps I used. Unity: Feel the Joy & Vintage Ledger, and PTI Everyday Button Bits for the sentiment. The buttons is blackberry from A Muse also.
