Gingham, Chevrons and Doilies

I thought it would be fun to share a few cards created with some fun accents. 
 First up, a card created around the Moxie Fab gingham challenge. The red gingham print is created with a stamp from Stampers Anonymous. I just love the look that is created with this stamp.
 The main focus then is an adorable bike stamp from Hero Arts. The sentiment is also Hero Arts and the black gingham strip is cut from a piece of digital paper I had printed out. LOVE that fancy Spellbinder Nestabilities square.
 Next up, a card created with The Play Date Cafe challenge. I think I just want this print hanging in my house somewhere.
 This is what I came up with.  The main piece is cut with my Cricut Expression. After the flower was cut out of the black, I backed the openings with papers that matched the other colors in the combo.
 The chevron design was created with a Crafter's Workshop stencil and a Fluid Chalk stamp pad.
 Plus, I want to share my Card Positioning Systems card for this week.

I cut a fancy doily strip with my Cricut Expression and accented that with a strip of a brown print paper.
 The little flower print is cut from a piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper and I added the rub-on sentiment. The dots are Liquid Pearls, one of my favorite accents right now.
And for some photos...
 My nasturtiums are going nuts!
 A close up of one of my red poppies.  These are just about done for this blooming.
I so love these poppies.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
