Looking at it Two Ways…

Good Morning!  I’m having an extra day off from work this week as today I’m gramma-sitting my adorable baby grand-daughter.  My daughter is a teacher and had to return to teach the final two weeks of school.  Rather than look for daycare for two weeks, all of the grandparents are taking turns watching her – let’s just say she isn’t much work, a bottle here, a diaper change there and of course lots of cuddle time!

When looking at the new challenges released today, I just knew I wanted to try The Play Date Cafe’s color challenge.  The challenge is to use Black, White with a splash of Mustard Yellow.  The mustard yellow gives the color a more masculine feel I think which is just perfect for a Get Well card I’m making for a relative that was recently in a motor vehicle accident. The color inspiration has a charcoal color so I hope that’s okay to use as I used that for the background color.

Stamps: Daisies – Hero Arts
Sentiment: Framed Out #1 – PTI
Punch: Butterfly – Martha Stewart
Embellishments and Miscellaneous: Pearls, Inkssentials white gel pen, Prismacolor pencils, OMS, Versamark, Black Embossing Powder – Ranger, White Embossing Powder – Stampendous

Okay that’s one way but I also wanted to do a more feminine card, this time I flipped the rotation of the card and used a canary yellow vs mustard yellow.  I subsituted rhinestones for pearls.  I didn’t have any yellow rhinestones so I colored some clear rhinestones with a yellow copic marker!  I freehad cut the yellow banner behine the sentiment.  It’s hard to tell but I propped the sentiment using black foam squares.

Stamp and Sentiment: Mat Stack 4 Collection – PTI
Die: Mat Stack #4 – PTI
Ink Smokey Shadow – PTI

I hope you enjoyed my different takes using the same stamp for two different cards.  As always, thanks so much for stopping by!  Dee
