Winnie & Walter and Simon Says Stamp

Keren's colorful plaid background for Winnie & Walter Rerun No. 20 inspired me.  I don't have Scenery Stripes, but I do have Scenery Stripes 2.  
I tried over & over to make my idea work using 3 of the images. Finally I gave up & went with just the little triangles to make my version using 5 pretty Brilliance ink pads.  The sentiment is from Big, Bold, Seasons & the stacked die cut word is covered in Wink of Stella.  I finished off with clear Nuvo drops. I'm also entering Penny Black & More.

Next is my entry for SSS Flickr Challenge #73.  I really love the little leaves in SSS Sketch Ranunculus.  
After white embossing on Bristol paper I colored with 2 green & 1 blue Zig.  Then I brushed heavily with Wink of Stella & mounted the panel with foam tape.  The sentiment from the same set is stamped several times in Brilliance Starlite Black. The Nuvo jewel drops are actually green--don't know why they look yellow in the photo.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

Now I see what you've been up to since you left our room. Those little colorful triangles are so cute I'm glad you couldn't find the other stripes. The leaves are so pretty and your coloring is awesome on them. I love the Nuvo drops. They are the perfect touch without adding bulk.

Miss Greta...love your sweet triangles, they look amazing and I love them in those sweet pastel colors. Both of your cards are beautiful. Wanted to thank you for the beautiful and thoughtful retirement card....you are so sweet and totally made me day!

Crisp, clean and classy all the way with both these cards. I was strolling around in Kikki today and many of the styles could have come straight from Chez Greta. I like that they are flat and easy to post to, an added bonus.

These are nice cards, so fresh. I'm really getting more and more into the minimalistic style. I do worry when I send them out for swaps. Like will someone think I barely tried/dialed it in? CAS cards are not easy though. No room for error.
