All Clean & Simple

Hello blogland friends! I made a few cards with a C&S look and I wanted to share them with you (and play at some challenges too!). Here are two of them:

this first one is very simple indeed! I bought a set of clear stamps a while ago and it´s my first card using them (actually one of them). I stamped the image several times with purple ink and a sentiment with black ink, then I stitched clear glass seed beads to frame the stamped area. I made this one because a friend (Paloma) asked me to make a card for a girlfriend of hers, and I thought it could be a nice present not only the card but a card with a pin she could wear. The pin is made out of scraps of fabric, dollar store flowers, pop tabs and glass piece from a chadelier that I brought at the flea market. It looked so pretty!
With this one I´m playing at:
The Outlawz CAS challenge: use something new
My time to craft challenge #171
Creative Belli blog challenge #136: Frames
Cute card Thursday challenge #201: you are a gem!

The second one is a digital card I made for my dear boyfriend Luis, I sent it to him by e-mail and he placed it as wallpaper on his computer ☺ it looks like he liked it! the images are from The Graphics Fairy, I "stamped" a tiny heart and the sentiment, it reads in Spanish PS: I love you.
I´m playing at:
The Outlawz Paper A La Mode challenge: clean and simple Valentine
Cupcake Craft challenge #176: all you need is love
Aud Sentiments challenge #46

Thank you for stopping, have a nice day!
