Today's cards feature more of the items available on sale during Online Extravaganza, through Wednesday next week (November 28). The Petite Pennants Punch is 30% off and the Pennant Parade Stamp set is available bundled with the Pennant Stampin' Around builder wheel at 40% off! Both of these cards are my versions, CASEd from samples I found on Pinterest and incorporated into my personal card-making extravaganza this week.
This first one has a (shiny ♥) silver sentiment on an otherwise all-white card, so I think it qualifies for LeAnne's Clean and Simple Gold or Silver Challenge at The Paper Players:
stamp set - More Merry Messages; ink - Versamark with Silver Stampin' Emboss powder; card stock - White Shimmer; punches - Modern Label, Petite Pennants; 5/8" organza ribbon - Whisper White; Big Shot with Perfect Polka Dots and Petals-a-Plenty textured embossing folders; Simply Scored, Stampin' Dimensionals
The next one is also a fairly clean and simple design, possibly more so than the first. Although a lot of the challenges I follow asked for clean and simple this week, none were specifically green or even monochrome, but Addicted to Stamps and More! suggested that "Anything goes!" for them:
stamp sets - Open Sleigh, Pennant Parade; ink - Garden Green, Wild Wasabi; Perfect Polka Dots textured embossing folder; card stock - Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White; Big Shot with Labels Collection framelit, Stampin' Dimensionals
When I layered this one together, I thought the base needed "something". Since Perfect Polka Dots is pretty much what I always think of first, and they would echo the patterns on two of the trees, I thought they'd look great. But, I didn't want to texture the base, since it also textures the inside of the card. Sometimes I'm fine with that, and other times I prefer to leave it smooth in case I want to add a longer personal note. So I inked up the raised side of the folder, placed the card on the ink and gently pressed it down, rubbing lightly - I like it - a lot ♥
Whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving in the US or not, I hope your day is filled with blessings! Thanks for stopping by, I feel blessed knowing that you've taken the time.
