My 1st Post for Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge – Clean & Simple

The theme for this Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge is to make a Clean and Simple card.  There are 3 very generous sponsors for this challenge and winners are determined by random drawing.  The sponsors are:  1) DRS Designs offering a $10.00 gift certificate, 2) A Day For Daisies offering a $12.00 Gift Certificate, and 3) Kitchen Sink Stamps who is offering a $25.00 Gift Certificate.  WOW. Thank you sponsors for supporting the mission of helping kids feel better.  What fabulous sponsors we have!

My first card is from DRS Designs called “Ladybug Stack” and Sentiment I used pan pastels for the background and copics to color the lady bugs.

My second card is from A Day For Daisies called “Carnation Pixie”.  I colored her with copics and after die cutting the focal shape, I kept the die in place while I inked spun sugar Distress Ink around the edges.  When you remove the die, there is a lovely frame around the edge.  I also used a die cut to emboss the background instead of cutting it out.  To do this simply use the embossing pad between the cutting plates and you’ve got texture instead of a die cut.  Another fun extra on this card are the white gel pen accents, which, to me, makes it look fairy like.

I hope you are inspired and join us at the SAS4kids challenge, which will last until August 15, 2014.  Thank you for stopping by and supporting my new design team adventure and SAS4Kids.  Happy Day and donate some cards (here’s how)!
