Two more cards for the day....

Two more cards to share for the day. We had a busy day of clothes shopping and I was surprised as to how quickly we found what we needed and got home. We headed out to the Livermore Outlets, it was so stinkin' hot out there, 100 degrees! I was surprised that there were so many people out shopping in the heat, this is not an enclosed mall.  I could never live in this area...way to hot!
Once home I decided to get busy with some card making and have a couple more to share. My first card is for the ColourQ challenge...the color combination is so pretty I could not resist.  I remember a card being made similar to this when these stamps were released from PTI some time back. This why I wanted this set and my first time playing with them.

My second card is for CASology and this week's cue card is fun...I had to search for this set that I have had forever from Flourishes. I love the look of silhouettes and these children running, having so much fun.  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Two more great cards. So very cute.

  2. I'm really fond of silhouette stamps, and the way you designed the tag for it to sit on is really clever, a fun twist!
    And you sure did a great job using the bobbin stamps too. Great job masking and combining colors.

  3. Such a fun 'sewn' card, Kim ... the thread wrapped bobbin is such a fabulous touch! LOVE the silhouettes in the lime green frame ... these children really do look as though they're squeezing every last little bit of fun out of the day! Anita :)

  4. Love those colorful bobbins...
    and I love all silhouettes...
    beautiful cards! :)

  5. Two really great cards, Kim. That sewing card is a perfect way to use those colors, and I love the way they look kind of jumbled, just like if they were in a sewing basket. And, your silhouette card for RUN is just perfect. A darling image, and perfect inside that quote tag die. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  6. You are always so creative, Kim! Great cards! Glad your shopping trip was successful--100 degrees?!

  7. The stamp set you have used for the second card is just gorgeous Kim...looks like a winner to me! Love how you've masked all those images on the first too. Thanks for playing along at Colour Q!

  8. Wonderful cards Kim! Love the inlay and happy scene on the second card. This first one is adorable.
    It sure was hot! Happy you found what you needed. I am not a fan of the heat .

  9. First of all, you are so right about the heat out here, UGH! Luckily the house and the Playhouse are air conditioned. I feel badly for my friends and relatives way over on the peninsula and in the Oakland hills that don't have any a/c and it gets in the 90s over there! Hopefully, this will be the last week of this carp!!

    Your two cards are so sweet!! That thread spool design is fantastic! I, too, have that Flourish stamp and it's NBUS, so thanks for the inspiration! I love the way you showcased it! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Love the image of children running on the inlaid tag. Thanks so much for joining in the fun at CASology. May

  11. Fab cards - love the way you've used the needle and thread with these colours! Thanks for playing along with the ColourQ this week!

  12. Hello Kim! Me again - have sent you a friend request through facebook as I am trying to get in touch with you about a blog hop...not sure what your email address is? Any chance you could drop me a line with the address please?

  13. Fab set of cards Kim. I just adore the silhouette card and with the in laid die in this bright colour, just perfect x

  14. 100 degree's??? How jealous am I!!!! Have had a couple of -5 degree celcius frosts this week, so we are no where near that temperate but the sun has been out and is quite hot...this has been the mildest winter for years. Good old global warming!! Anyway, back to these glorious cards. I've never seen that sewing set used before, what a brilliant idea! I love it when a card can be tactile and interactive. Brilliant! And those running children, whoever designed that stamp captured their 'young and free' spirit perfectly. It looks so crisp and green with that tag too! Popping on to YouTube for a moment to see if I can finish a Unicorn Rainbow Loom for Phoebe. Hopefully this won't fall apart like the other band I worked on. It looked so good....until the bands snapped......Hope your having a fabulous week!

  15. Your first card, using spools of thread for the challenge colours, is soooo eye-catching! Adding 'real thread' with the needle (I hope I'm seeing these correctly!), is brilliant! Pretty, plus! The silhouette of the children playing and turning hand-stands is pure fun indeed! So too is your decision to use the PS Quote die (I need to dust mine off!) and the springy green paper. A whole lot of 'awesome' happening here, dear friend!! We're at a sunny 46 degrees now, with a forecast for 90...such temperatures don't happen very often here! I'll likely be inside, trying to keep cool...and crafty!

  16. Fun cards!! Have to say I am so about finding what I want/need shopping and moving on...my kind of shopping!

  17. Sweet cards, Kim! Great job with your masking on the first one. And I love the silhouette, a really great take on the cue word!

  18. That Hangin' by a Thread certainly grabbed my eye. (used to be a quilter in my other hobby). I always searched for sewing memorabilia or trivia, and this colorful card really is just down my alleyway. Great bold colors too. The playing children is equally sweet with the dark silhouette against the cream and bright yellow green. Especially liked the embedded hello...you did a fab job with that technique. TFS & Hugs
