Simple but Oh So Fun!

I'm absolutely in love with the Fall release at Beth Duff Designs! It's got a little bit of everything, and it's all so cute!

Today, I'm actually sharing 3 different quick and simple cards, that were super fun to make, with 3 different sets. I will forewarn you my last card does have a cuss word, so if that upsets you, feel free to skip over it!

I started with the new Adventures Abroad - England set, I love this line, and England is a favorite of mine! This set has both large and small images and some great sentiments. 

For my card, I took the small images and using different color Delicata Inks, stamped out a patterned paper of my own. 

Next, I picked a paper from Echo Park's Wish Upon a Star paper pad that looks like newspapers layered. and put it under my homemade patterned paper. I used it to stamp my sentiment out too. I finished the card off with a few rhinestones. 

My second card features Game Time, a football themed set, perfect for back to school, and you know those NFL fans in your life. I had to color my jersey up in Seahawks colors, GO HAWKS! I was really tempted to mask out the number and make it a "12" but it felt like a lot of work for my simple theme!

Next, I made my own patterned paper again using Catherine Pooler inks, and the smaller images from the set. The card felt a little clean for the football theme, so I added some Nuvo drops and smudged them to make it a bit messy. Finally, I used some Stampin' Up layering dies to make my sentiment pop out a bit but added some more Nuvo smudges so it wasn't too clean.

My last card is a tribute to my big brother who is currently battling colon cancer. This set is called Give Cancer a Beat Down, it is an awesome set. I chose to color the ribbon blue, as that's the symbol for colon cancer. The gloves I colored in red and gold, as his favorite super hero is Iron Man. 

I sponged Catherine Pooler inks onto a DecoArt stencil that reminds me of a circuit board since he's a big techie. The sentiment is heat embossed with Stampin Up ink in Cherry Cobbler. Last, I layered the card face on shiny gold paper, then a nice royal blue paper.
