Clean and Simple Card Making 2 - Day 5

Hello!

I'm a little behind with my homework for Clean & Simple Card Making 2, but I've made double use of my time by entering a couple of challenges at the same time. :-)

Day 5 was about stretching your stamps. I have two cards using the same stamps here. I plan to play around a bit more to see what else I can come up with. The stamp set is Papertrey Ink Pretty Peonies.

First card.
Colours are Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake, and Soft Suede. I made this one for Dynamic Duos #38.
Second card.
Colours are Daffodil Delight and Memento Tuxedo Black. The patterned paper is Stampin' Up!

This one was made for CASE Study #126 using this amazing inspiration from Amber Kemp-Gerstel.

Thanks for coming by to visit!

I love both of these gorgeous cards. Your first one is so stunning--I never thought to use that frame as a negative, and it looks wonderful. And, your next card is a classic beauty.
