I have two cards to share today using The Alle Way stamps.  

Today I finally finished a simple card I started last weekend for the Be Inspired challenge at The Alley Way Stamps blog.  The color combo was a real challenge for me ;)  

  For the main image I used one of the cupcake images from the Hey Cupcake set to make the crystal bowl.  I stamped the cherries and applied a coat of Distress Rock Candy crackle paint to give a real effect to the glass bowl.  The sentiment is from the Talk To Me set.

I decided to use some of my yummy Vellum for the card strips.  For those, I embossed one with a polka dot stamp and white powder and the other two using an embossing folder.  Then I sponge some Shabby Shutters distress ink to add color to the vellum. 

Then Just Because, I combined two of my passions and two of my favorite shops to make a card.  I used my beloved KNK Maxx to cut a card from the Everyday Cards collection from SVG Cuts.  I used an BG 6x6 paper card to cut the different elements of the card.

I love the bee from the Priceless Joy set so I decided to use that image for my card.  I also added some grass and flowers from the Crazy Critters set. 

 I made the green background paper using acrylic paint in green and white.    

I hope you like my cards and be inspired to create a card and participate in the Be Inspired challenge.  I'm sure you will love some of the freebies Alison has.  

Hope you have a great Sunday night!!
