Feeling Sentimental about wheels

Two posts from me in one day!  This time, two cards for two challenges.  

Less is More this week has a theme of round and round and Addicted to CAS has a code word of wheels. 

With a first glance at my cards you may think mmmm how does this fit in with the challenges?  Ha you'll need to look closely.   The stamp I've used is the Penny Farthing from Feeling Sentimental.  Honest it is! 

On the first card I coloured the wheels with my Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker and stamped onto Whisper White.  I then cut out the wheels.  On the large flower I added petals by punching out Summer Starfruit card stock using the Banner Punch and attaching to the back.  The stem is some green cardstock from my millions of scraps!  I used a Smoky Slate card base and added a panel stamped with the Hardwood stamp also in Smoky Slate.  The panel has the corners rounded.  I chose a simple For You sentiment from Itty Bitty Banners and die cut with the matching framelit. 

What's your thoughts?

Onto my second card.  When I stamped the wheel the first time it immediately looked like a slice of lemon.  So I decided to go with the flow and make this card.  

This time the card base is Crushed Curry.  I added a sentiment from Perfect Preserved stamped in Calypso Coral and die cut with the Banners Framelits.  I curled the ends with my paper snips.

Once again I coloured the wheel from Feeling Sentimental in Crushed Curry and cut out.  I then snipped a cut up to the centre.  I stamped the jar from Perfectly Preserved in Sahara Stone and fussy cut out.  To make it look like the lemon is in the jar, I snipped along the rim so I could tuck the lemon slice in.  Before doing this I stamped the wheel onto the jar in Summer Starfruit after stamping off first.  Now it looks like you can see the lemon through the glass!  I used my Aqua Pen to add a little watered down Summer Starfruit to the inside of the jar.  I tied Calypso Coral 1/8" taffetta ribbon around the top of the jar.  Then to help ground the image I added a strip of Washi Tape along the bottom of the card from Epic Day.  I slightly rounded the jar and attached to the card with Dimensionals.  

Now the big question is - When the world throws you lemons, do you make a g & t or lemonade?

I'll leave you to decide what's in the jar!!

Great cards Aileen.
As you said amazing that we should use the same stamp but such different results!

Love the yellow and gray together and your lemonade looks delicious!

Very clever Aileen, they're both great but I'm loving that curry and coral colour combo. And to answer your question, it would be lemon meringue pie for me! X

Great card Aileen. Love the background (just got that one myself but it's not been inked yet!!!) and how you've adapted the penny farthing stamp for the wheels.

Thanks for playing along at ATCAS.
