Cardmaking | Colour Throwdown 604 + more!

A couple of cards to share today...

First up is a slimline card inspired by Colour Throwdown.  I've stuck to the black, white and terracotta colour palette but also kept things really CAS.

I started with my stamping using my new MISTI!  Yes, that does need to be in italics, bold and underlined because it tryuly is that exciting.  No more faffing trying to stamp a tiny sentiment with my gigantic memory MISTI.  I stamped bold black stripes with an old Concord and 9th set.

My 'terracotta' is actually a Shimmerz paint called So Sappy.  I painted the edges of a panel to mat my stamped piece on and a swatch to die cut from.

The die is from Pinkfresh and I snipped and pieced together to give the appearance of a larger bouquet.
For my sentiment I pulled out a teeny tiny stamp from a StickerKitten set.  I white heat embossed it onto black and trimmed it to be a tiny tag.  For the little details I added a trio of trios in matching sequins and tied my tag to the stem of my bouquet with a pretty bow.

My second card is made with one of the recently released Skull and Cross Buns stencils.  I used it to poke holes to sew and went bonkers with my Mum's embroidery floss.  She used to do a lot of cross stitch so has a vast collection of threads in allofthecolours - which hapens to be my favourite colour!!  As she now crochets instead of cross stitch they are free for me to play with.

I pulled out a matching ink from my Pinkfresh ink cube collection and stamped You Got This from the Quirky Sentiments set from Skull and Cross Buns.

I needed to mount the sewn panel on some thin foam squares as the thred was a little bulky especially where all four threads went through the same hole.
