A couple of clean and simple cards

Entering this card in the following challenges:
Casology - Cue word:  Cut
Seize the Birthday - Theme:  Anything Goes

I fussy cut the cow and die cut the white rectanglar piece. 
I used Mama Elephant stamps (lunar animals and brush strokes) and Stampin Up stamps (endless birthday wishes) to make this card.


 I created this card for a  colleague who celebrates a birthday in early Jan but unfortunately I forgot it.  The inside of the card reads:  "But I do!"

Thanks for looking!

We herd it's your birthday!

Entering this birthday card in: Seize the Birthday Challenge Blog.  The theme this week is 'anything goes'.

I used Mama Elephant Stamps (Brush strokes; Lunar Animals); Lawn Fawn stamps (Party Animals); Stampin up stamps (Endless Birthday Wishes) and MFT die (Fence).

I love a good pun and thought this was appropriate for the farm animals!

Thanks for looking!

Have a purr-fect day!

Entering this card in CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge #204
I loved the sketch  and tried to keep it clean and simple - it's hard not to keep adding layers and embellishments!
Here's the sketch and a link to the blog:

Using Mama Elephant stamps (Lunar animals), My Favourite Things Stamps (Party Balloons) and Amy R Stamps (Critter Sentiments).

Sending Birthday Thoughts

I'm entering this card in Freshly Made Sketches this week.
I'm also entering it in Colour Throwdown #425 - black, mustard and blue.  This is not a colour combo that I would normally use but it is really lovely!

I used Mama Elephant Pandamonium Stamps and Happy Everything sentiment stamps.

Thanks for looking!

Wishing you a tree-mendous day!

Entering this card in:
Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and CASology Week 23.

I loved the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - it takes a lot of the hard work out of card making for me and makes it so much more fun to create.  The 'Forest' theme from CASology made me use colours that I normally don't use (which was fun!) and also made me realise that I don't own any tree stamps (GASP!).  Definitely need to add some of those to the wishlist!

I used Mama elephant stamps for the rabbit (lunar animals) and the sentiment (calli letters & happy everything).
Here's a link to both challenges if you're interested in having a look.  It's great fun to play along!

You're Tea-rific!

I'm entering this card in the Fusion Card Challenge.  It's my first time with this challenge blog and I love that there's two elements to the challenge.  You can choose to use just the sketch or just the inspiration photo to create a card, or you can fuse the two together!

Here's the inspiration photo:
I chose to use both elements for my card.  Any excuse to stamp a pun!

Stamps:  Lawn Fawn-Best Pun Ever
Ink:  Stampin up
Dies:  Paper Rose circles and Paper Rose rectangles

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge


I forgot how much I love card sketches and I really enjoyed having a clean and simple card sketch to follow.
Couldn't decide whether to use a blue strip or a pink strip...so I joined them together and used both!

Stamps:  Altenew Vintage Roses; Stampin up Watercolour Wings (sentiment)
Inks:  Stampin up and Distress Inks
