CASology - Week 122

Hi there blog friends ~
I'm back with a quick post to share a card I created for this week's challenge at CASology. The cue card is 'Flag', so I used the banner shaped flag die from Mama Elephant Carnival Toppers set. Here is my card:


I stamped the image from So Breezy and the sentiment from Cross My Heart. I used just the scalloped die from Femme Frames and mounted it to a red card base. And, that was it...Don't ya just love all that white space?!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Muse Card Challenge #94

Hi everyone! Just a quick post from me today to share a card I created for the Muse Card Challenge. Marion Vagg created our Muse card for this week and as always, it's a 'Beauty'! Here is Marion's card:



And, here is my very literal take on Marion's card:




It's a little difficult to see the alphas in the die cut sentiment, so here is a close up:


I used a mix of Hero Arts shadow inks and SSS inks for the balloons, and white embossing powder for the sentiment. It's difficult to see on screen, but I used Hero Arts Silver ink for the balloon strings and my brandy new Mama Elephant 'Happy' die :)

So, that's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by ~

ATCAS #52 - Sketch and Happy 2nd Birthday

 Hi there blog friends,
One of my all-time favorite card challenges is Addicted to CAS, and this week happens to be their 2nd Birthday! So, before I share my card, I would like to say Happy, Happy Birthday to Kylie and her amazing team!




So, as you can see I went fairly literal in my interpretation of the sketch. Instead of paper or cardstock for the panel, I used my SSS Diagonal Stripe stencil and texture paste. I've had the PTI Circle Scribbles die for a while, so I used it for the first time on this card, and cut it in vellum. The penguin is from Mama Elephant and the sentiment is from SSS Big Holiday Wishes.

That's it for me today...Thanks so much for stopping by ~

ATSM - Challenge #122



Hi there Blog Friends, It's Team A's turn to post our inspiration cards for this week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More. The theme for this challenge is "Make Your Mark", so I hope you'll grab your markers, paints, colored pencils and stamps, and play along with us! Our Sponsor for this challenge is Eureka Stamps, and the prize is your choice of 3 Digital Stamps! Here is my card:




I chose this digital stamp from Eureka Stamps, and colored him with my Copic markers. I used Mama Elephant Femme Frames and Landscape Trio die cuts and mounted it onto a black card base. The sentiment and snowflakes are from Lawn Fawn. I also added Flower Soft to the snowy hill to give it texture and shine.


I hope you'll be able to find some time to stop by and check out all of the amazing projects my Teamies have created for This Week's Challenge and play along! Thanks so much for stopping by ~
