Clean & Simple Sketch

Clean & Simple Sketch

I noticed there are new Clean & Simple (CAS) challenges on Splitcoast, and this week the challenge was a sketch. I combined it with today’s color combination challenge: Summer Kiwi Pies.

My card is larger than the cards I usually make (it measures 5″ x 7″) and is made out of textured Kiwi Kiss card stock. The Summer Sun panel measures about 5″ x 3″ and has a torn bottom edge. I wheeled the Friendly Words jumbo wheel with Kiwi Kiss ink onto Whisper White card stock and added some Summer Sun specks with the Color Spritzer. After I cleaned the wheel, I inked up one of the sentiments on the wheel with a Pumpkin Pie marker, rolled on Whisper White card stock, and punched out with the wide oval punch. This was layered on top of one of the Lots of Tags die-cuts with dimensionals.

The large Pumpkin flower was created with the Simple Flower embosslits die and embellished with a 5/16″ white brad. The small flowers from the Simple Friendship set were stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink, and I used a blender pen to soften the lines right after I stamped the images.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Vera, This is a really sharp card. Not being an “orange” person, I was surprised how much I liked the layout, design, stamps and colors. Really, really good!
