WMS August Pyjama Party


I'm playing along again with the WMS Pyjama Party today and have two cards to share.

My first card is for Challenge #3, which is a colour inspiration challenge to use these colours on your project:


I decided to use my new 2 Step Sprig stamp set for this challenge.


I stamped the flowers and leaves onto some PTI rustic white card stock and added a sentiment from WMS's Compact Sentiments stamp set. I added a little twine and layered it over a piece of MME patterned paper.




My second card is also for Challenge #3 (but I substituted aqua mist for the royal blue colour-- I hope that's okay!) It's also for Challenge #4, which was to use your oldest stamps. My oldest stamps are Fillable Frames #9 from Papertrey Ink, which I used on the card, along with its matching die. My oldest WMS stamp set is Woodgrain, which I also used-- I heat embossed it in white on the aqua mist cardstock background.


I also included a stamp from Compact Sentiments and a stamped feather from Fine Feathers.

(I'm also linking up these cards to this week's Simons Says Challenge: Anything Goes.)

Thanks for looking!
