MFT, Reverse Confetti, Catered Crop & Simon Says're the best!

Hello stampin' friends! I saw that they have an fun new monthly colour challenge over on the Reverse Confetti blog...I couldn't resist the fabulous Grey, Orange and Navy colour combo even though I don't have any RC stamps...YET (I placed my first order and I'm eagerly awaiting some fabulous RC Christmas stamps.)

So, I thought I would still play along since they are accepting projects with any stamps until the new year! I thought I would also join the Catered Crop Recipe Swap...Thank You Kindly and the challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Thanks/Thankful.  I LOVED this colour combo SO much that I actually made 2 cards...I was on a be sure to scroll down for both cards :)
Here is the fabulous RC November colour combo...LOVE it!

I only used MFT Replenishments Heavyweight Card Stock in Nightshift Blue, Orange Fizz, Steel Blue and Smooth White....can you believe it? No patterned paper here! I used Blueprints 1, the Pierced Traditional Tags STAX, Traditional Tag STAX, Layered Treat Tag and the Accent It - Holiday Traditions Elements Die-namics.  I inked up the fabulous  NEW Woodgrain Background Stamp and stamped it on the Steel Blue Heavyweight Card Stock. I also stamped the argyle pattern from the Textile Backgrounds Stamp set as I was inspired by RC Colour Challenge photo and I also used the Jumbo Mod Borders Stamp set.  I inked up the Vertical Greetings Stamp set and the Sending Thanks Stamp set and used MFT Premium Dy Ink in Nightshift Blue, Orange Fizz and Steel Grey.

Here is the inside...I kept it simple and made the inside of both cards the same. I used another sweet sentiment from the Sending Thanks Stamp set.

Here is my second card...again I used the Sending Thanks Stamp set and the Textile Backgrounds Stamp set. I used the Pierced Traditional Tag STAX and I love the little chevron Die-namics in the NEW LLD Accent It - Holiday Traditions Elements. I stamped the Jumbo chevron pattern on it in Orange Fizz Premium Dye ink from the Jumbo Mod Borders Stamp Set

I  cut two little tickets from the NEW Blueprints 9 and stamped another cute sentiment from the Sending Thanks Stamp set. 

Well, thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my cards for the Reverse Confetti November Colour Challenge and the Catered Crop Recipe Swap and Simon Says Stamp Thank You card challenges.
