Inspired By JC Penney Bedding

I love participating in the new Clean and Simple Challenges at Split Coast Stampers. They are posted on Mondays, and yesterday I was gone most of the day doing schoolwork so didn't have a chance to even see what it was. This morning when I saw my friend Susan's card that she made for the challenge I thought it was terrific. It turns out the challenge is to use bedding from JC Penney for your inspiration. So I went to check out the bedding. This is the inspiration piece I used. I thought that quilt was so cute, and I don't think I did it any justice with this card. Nor do I think that this card is what I would consider CAS. I used a lot of stamp sets which is not something I usually do for a CAS card, it ended up taking forever, and I even got out my embossing tools. I loved looking at the bedding for inspiration anyway, and I'm hoping to make another card later that fits more into what I'd call the "Clean and Simple" category.

Stamps: SU Time Well Spent, SU Little Flowers, Mindy's Zoo, Verve Petals and Stems
Ink: PTI Hibiscu Burst, PTI Ripe Avocado, VersaMark
Cardstock: PTI Spring Moss
DP: Debbie Mumm
Accessories: Ranger Clear Embossing Powder

I think this totally looks like the original quilt. You did a terrific job with the colors and patterns and even got a butterfly in there!

I think it's still considered CAS even though you used a lot of stamps because the overall layout is still simple. I know what you mean though when you say "how can it be CAS if it took forever". I made a card today (which I will post later in the week) that is truly CAS but it took over an hour to do because of all the stamping and coloring. Well...won't do that again.

What a great challenge and inspiration find. Love the colors on this one - springy/summery because it's not too pastelly - more bright - fun for sure!
