Keeping it simple

The two cards I have to share today are keeping it simple but are effective all the same.  The both use the principles of repetition and working in groups of three.
For the first card I have used stamps from the 'Sheltering Tree' set.  Love the colour combo of Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake.

The following card was made by my friend Brenda using the bow builder punch.  Simple, classy, effective. Thanks Brenda, you're an inspiration!

Icecream and Apples

The 'Sprinkles of Life' stamp set is so versatile, which is what drew me to it.  You can have so much fun playing! 
For the card below I have used the tree builder punch for the ice cream and cherry and the triple banner punch also. To colour the cone I simply used an aqua painter over the already stamped image (ink is 'Delightful Dijon').
Next up- a basket of apples.  I love how the rosy red apples pop against the soft muted background.  I have surprised myself how much I'm reaching for the new 'Mint Macaron' colour.  The Ornate Tag Topper is on special this week.  Love it.

The accent on the apples has been made with a Stampin' Chalk Writer.  The inspiration for this card came from this card here.

Happy crafting!  Sal xo
