I have two very simple, very similar cards today that combine several different challenges.  The colors come from CAS – Colours and Sketches challenge #23; although it may look like I’ve used black, it’s really Midnight Muse, a dark blue.  The “missing you” theme is for the May Operation Write Home/Our Daily Bread Designs challenge, which is also the first of Operation Write Home’s NSD 2013 Virtual Card Making Party challenges.   Having two cards ties into the current OWH Midweek Throwdown – creating “his and hers” cards.

I have to admit it felt good to use some of my Tangerine Tango cardstock!  I have such a hard time using that color.  Many thanks to the CAS – Colours and Sketches girls for making me push out of my comfort zone with it!

Stamps: The Art of Life (Stampin’ Up); Right at Home (Hero Arts)
Cardstock: Midnight Muse, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron (SU); Pure Luxury Ivory (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Midnight Muse, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron (SU)

  1. these are beautifully subtle, the bold stamp against the faded strip gives such a soft but strong feel…….if that makes sense!! Thanks for joining us at CC&S and so pleased we got you using the cardstock!!

  2. Two gorgeous cards. I think sihouette stamps are my absolute favorites and I love the color block behind them.

  3. Well, you don’t look out of your comfort zone, both of these are gorgeous, subtle and classy. Love them. Thanks for playing along with us at CAS Colours and Sketches

  4. Both are wonderful cards! I am always a fan of silhouette stamps, and I just love these. I agree, the faded block looks wonderful and really highlights the stamps.

  5. I love your CAS designs for masculine and feminine cards! WTG on using the tangerine tango too! I’m challenged with the summer starfruit the same way!

  6. You did a fabulous job on these two cards. I love those silhouettes and the way you placed them over your blocks.

  7. What beautiful cards! I love CAS design and you did both card versions superbly. A true inspiration
