Ippity Stamps Blog Hop, Play Date Cafe and Get Sketchy

Good morning everyone!  Today I have a couple of challenge cards to share with you.  The first card was made for this weeks challenge at the Play Date Cafe which was  to use black and white with a splash of color.  I combined  this challenge with the sketch from Get Sketchy and here is the card I created.

I rarely use yellow on a card so I thought I'd used it  as my color splash.   The flowers are are from Now and Always and the number scallop stamp and sentiment are from Party Hat Wishes.   Here is the sketch I used for this card.

                                                                        


My next card was made for this months Ippity challenge. I used the March sketch to create this card.

I have always loved this silhouette stamp of the potted flowers from So  This is Love  and thought it would be perfect to use with the  the kissing technique.  I used  the Book It stamp  with green ink,  the potted flower stamp with pink ink and kissed the two stamps together.  I really liked the end result with just the right amount of green coming through.  I tried other color combinations but this was my favorite. The sentiment is from Just Wanted to Say and the paper is from Basic Grey.
