Paired Up Times Two

A few weeks ago I was the lucky winner of four stamp sets from a brand new company called Clearly Besotted!  I'm sure that many of you have seen owner Stephanie Wincott's amazing blog.  I was a follower before she started her company.  I just love her clean, crisp style of card making.

Here are two cards that I made using Paired Up.  LOVE this set.  I just know that I will get so much use out of these stamps.  By the way, the stamp quality is wonderful too.  I'm just thrilled with my new stamps.

I decided to make the large circle image into a moon.  I used the rock-n-roll technique to ink up the stamp.  First in a light yellow and then rolled the edges in a light orange.

I added some score lines above the embossing to bring the design together.  I really enjoyed making these quick and simple cards.  Just my style.

I'm entering these into the current Simon Says challenge which is Anything Goes.
