More Love Fest Cards

Hi Everyone,

I've been making cards for the Love Fest Challenges on SCS again this weekend.  I'm also incorporating a few other cyber challenges along the way, so below are the cards I've created for all of them today.

The first one above is for the "Die Crazy" Simon Says Stamp challenge and this week's IC.  The webstore for the IC is "Designs by Lucinda".  How could I not participate in that challenge when my MOM'S name is Lucinda!!  How fun!!

I used three dies on this card: "Absolutely" by Simon Says, A Sunburst from Lil Inker Designs (I love the way the die creates little perforations around the edges!), and a Cuttlebug trees die (one of those older silver-toned squares).

The paper is "Earth Love" by Cosmo Criket and the sentiment is the coordinating stamp set from Simon Says that goes with the "Absolutely" die.  I free hand cut the banner.  To cut the "hills", I used my fun new Kiwi Lane Design "Sentiments" template set that I won from the Scrapbook Expo yesterday!  (It's so much more fun to  "win" a new toy!)

This next card is for the Inspiration Challenge hosted by the Cats Pajamas.  I always have a hard time with the gray/yellow color pallet that was in the inspiration piece, but I gave it a shot anyways since I had some new stamps to play with (again from yesterday's Scrapbook Expo)!  All the stamps used on this card are by Rubbernecker.  The flowers are "Poppy Layers", the background is "Victorian Lace" and the the sentiment is "Easter Blessings."

I stamped my background, the images and sentiment onto white CS, die cut the shape then mounted it onto a gray panel. I added some jewel bling just to balance it out, but overall, left it pretty simple. The die I used is from SU Labels Collection.

This card is for three challenges.  The "Make My Day" Lovefest Challenge hosted by MFT; the current "Case Study #129" Challenge; and the current "Basic Grey Challenge #88" which is "Anything Goes" but you must use a Basic Grey product.  I used "Perhaps" DP.

The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets (I think the set is called "A Couple of Cuties") and I used some scalloped Peel Offs lines, a dove charm and some HL gold flowers to embellish the card.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work!!
