Two very different cards today

The first one is for Simon Says Stamp And Show Challenge - show your numbers. I've used lots of TH stamps and his number masks, Distress Inks, Versa Fine, bleach to blend the black ink, Sakura pen, vintage downloads and Tsukineko embossing powder for the film strip. The film strip and the panel with the masked numbers are attached with 3D tape to add dimension to the card. Paper clips, edge and buttons are from my stash. I'm quite surprised with the result, didn't know I could make a card like this one.

This one was more predictable and I'm pleased with the result. I get so often carried away when making cards that I never know what I'll end up with.

I made a quilt pattern (an easy one) with small scrap pieces and distressed all the edges with DI. I used a MS punch to the red backing paper. I made a small sock, stamped the edges with a TH stamp, added some stitching for texture and Stickles and Liquid Pearls (the white border) for sparkle and shine. The sock is attached with 3D tape to create dimension.
