Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #302; SSS Flickr Challenge #78 - Dots and/or Stripes

Hi there,
I've been busy in my craft room for the past few days and of course, enjoying PTI's Stamp-A-Faire videos :) So, today I'm sharing 2 cards that I created for a few challenges ~

First up is Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #302 with a sketch by Cecile:

Such a great sketch and I love the color combo she chose for it, too :) Here is my take:


A few weeks ago, CASology used the cue card 'Safari' and Hannelie's card is what inspired me to check out the Silhouette store for some images. I stamped the sun using the Altenew Half-tone circles and the sentiment is from SSS...and that was it!

*******************************

Next up is the card I created for the current SSS Flickr Challenge, and the theme is 'Dots and/or Stripes':


I think dots are a lot of fun on a card, so I took out my old circle punches and a few dies to create stencils with Post It Notes. The sentiment is from SSS, which I stacked five high for dimension...Done and dusted :)

Wishing you all a great week ahead ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,

Gosh I'm almost transported to your safari scene, Barb ... you captured the heat of the African plains beautifully with that fabulous sun and ombré sentiment! LOVE those fun bubbles of colour ... so bright and playful! Hugs, Anita :)

I adore your safari scene, Barb ... the colors are wonderful and that Altenew halftone stamp makes for a very hot sun - almost like the heat ripples one might see there!
LOve the dots... how creative to make your own stencil!
Fabulous cards, my friend... xx

Both gorgeous cards, Barb! The safari one is so dramatic and using the halftone circle is genius! And the colorful dots are so fun - they just make me smile!

Your safari card is fantastic, Barb. I think I've seen an art print similar to it. Love the bright colored circles.

Both cards are wonderful Barb. The black yellow and white on your silhouette card are so reminiscent of a sunrise safari. Your dots are fun and festive.
