Am I Getting Rusty?

I broke out some of my Really Rust Stampin' Up cardstock for a couple of challenges. I've been hoarding it because it is discontinued but I've decided to be almost an adult about it...I'll use a few pieces here and there. Sigh.

I still had my Relish Reading set out so I turned to them for the two challenges I made for today. My first inspiration was the fabulous sketch on Card Patterns.

Gingersnap Creations' Spicy Supply Challenge is Raffia right now, so I knew what I was going to use for fiber! Here's my take on the sketch:

Day Dreamer
Stamps: girl and sentiment from Relish Reading plate (Rogue Redhead Designs)
Paper: Et cetera paper line (Bo Bunny)
Cardstock: Real Rust and Chocolate Chip (Stampin Up)
Ink: Tuxedo Brown (Memento)
Embellishment: Raffia
Tools: Oval cutter (Creative Memories)

For my second card, I applied the K.I.S.S. principle and went to Clean and Simple Stamping for some inspiration. No, my card is not white but it's still clean and simple!

Here's my vintage take on this sketch:

Miss You Lad
Stamps: boy and sentiment (Rogue Redhead Designs)
Paper: scrap of Prima paper; Et cetera collection (Bo Bunny)
Cardstock: Really Rust and Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento); various copic markers; Tye Dye Distress Ink (Ranger)
Tools: circle cutter (Creative Memories)

May your Monday be magnificent!
