Artsystamper Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello my friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on the Artsystamper Challenge Blog where the team is showcasing digital images designed by Beverly Cole at The Artsystamper Shop!   The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month brings another Artsystamper Challenge
and today's theme is:

Anything Goes

Even though our theme this time is anything goes, the design team is creating projects using Beverly's new Watercolor Florals Card Making Kit. 

This is a great kit for those folks 'just getting started' in card making and have yet to collect all the wonderful stamps, dies, inks, etc., etc. that we 'seasoned' crafters have acquired over time.

This kit comes complete with beautiful papers, pre-colored and need to color images that are in a .pdf format so you can print  them out as many times as you'd like. 

Here are just a few sheets I printed out to create with today!

You can start out very simply and work your way up to more layers
or if you're a seasoned crafter you can just GO FOR IT!!
But, before sharing my designs, did you know that at the moment there is a half price sale at The Artsystamper Shop - it is the perfect time to stock up on your card making digital stamps and papers.

Card #1 (Clean & Simple)
I've printed one of the patterned papers onto an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of white card stock then cut it to size to create my A6 size card.  Folded it in half which gave me a white inside panel for any sentiment, decorating I might want to do inside.   I then hand cut one of the oval images as well as one of the sentiments ... simply adhered them to the front of my card and VIOLA! 

A clean and simple design is always nice for a sympathy card and this card could be used for either a man or a woman.  The colors/image lend themselves to either gender!


Card #2

Another A6 size card but this time cut from white card stock and used the Artsystamper printed paper for my background design.  Using the floral for the full background and a scrap of the striped paper for an accent panel.  I've used the same image but this time I've used one of my oval dies for cut the image as well as the royal blue matted panel.  To pull it all together, I've used a green rectangular matting panel and also die cut it but from a different die set ... this time a scallop stitched rectangle.

Once again I have hand cut the sentiments from Beverly's coordinating sentiment sheet.  This time I decided to use the two coordinating panels together on the front leaving the inside blank for a long message to a close friend that I haven't seen for so long due to Covid-19.

Nuvo White Crystal Drops were added to the flower centers and at the corners of my green panel for a little extra dimension.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
You do NOT have to use Beverly's images (of course we would love to see them if you have them) ... but you must follow the theme to qualify for the prize.  PRIZE you say . . .

YEP ... The winner of our challenges will receive the stamp set of their choice from TheArtsystamperShop.  Beverly Cole's selections offer stamps and sentiments in each set as well as pre-colored images for easy, last minute cards.  Why not take a moment and check out what she has in the shop!!  And there's more new images/papers coming in the weeks ahead!!
