PS Sparks Designer Draft and CAS One Layer Cards

Even though I haven't posted in a few days, I've still been creating. I have 3 cards to share with you today.

First up is a card I created for the Paper Smooches Designer Draft Challenge over on their Sparks Blog.

And here's my take on the sketch...

I did a lot of die-cutting for the background, but I wanted it to be super simple to make the focal point my cute puppy. I just love coloring puppies!

Stamps: Birthday Buddies (Paper Smooches)

Dies: Stitched Rectangles (SSS), Stitched Circles (SSS), Landscape Trio (Mama Elephant), Grassy Fields (MFT), Sunshine Layers (WPlus9)
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Assorted Copics

For my next 2 cards, I took a cue from Addicted to CAS. Their code word this week was: Animal.

I'm still in love with My Favorite Things' From the Herd set. I haven't put it down since I got it and today was no exception.

I'm entering this first card into the challenge. I just really like how it turned out. The colors really pop and the sentiment makes me smile. I think I'm going to send it to my brother in the next couple of days. He's going through a rough time and I think he'll appreciate getting some mail.

This second card is sweet, but the colors just weren't doing it for me. I'll probably try to recreate it using different colors later because I just love that sentiment and this little trio of piglets!

Stamps: From the Herd (MFT), Green Pastures (MFT)
Dies: Stitched Rectangles (SSS)
