Tag You're It Challenge #56 - Reminder

Hello again ~
As Guest Designer for the current challenge at Tag You're It, I'm back with another tag, and a reminder for anyone who would like to play along ~  Our inspiration tag was created by Taheerah Atchia, and I am loving how she used the over-sized bold sentiment on her tag. Here is Taheerah's tag ~

Here is my 2nd tag ~

This time, I used a bold black sentiment, and since I zoomed in on the beautiful roses she placed in the background, I decided to use my MFT rolled roses die, some white felt, and a pastel pink pearl gem. I splattered some gold shimmer mist, added some twine, and that was it!

So, come on over to the Tag You're It Challenge Blog and play along! Thanks so much for stopping by,

CAS Mix Up - Marbling; Muse Challenge #183; Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop

Hi there,
A quick post for me to share 2 cards I created for several challenges ~
First up, is my entry for the CAS Mix Up Challenge. I usually have my card posted earlier than this, but the challenge is to use the 'Marbling' technique, and I needed white (old fashioned) shaving cream :)

I swirled some color with Brushos into the shaving cream to create the pattern behind the vellum butterfly and was fun! Bonnie gives a great step-by-step tutorial in This Post, if you're interested in trying it out :) I added a few gems, PTI clear Rainstones and a stamped sentiment, and that was it!


My 2nd card is for three challenges: Muse Card Club #183, Virginia's View Challenge, and since I used Altenew flowers for this card, I am also adding it to the Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop.

Tracey McNeely created a gorgeous card this week for the Muse Challenge (see below), and I couldn't wait to play along! Of course, now I'm sliding in at the last minute :) I chickened out with the watercolor wash after ruining 2 other cards...but, I did add some fun pink and white splatters, which was perfect for Virginia's challenge...too bad I missed the deadline!

As always, thank you so much for stopping by, and for leaving sweet comments...I read and appreciate every one ~ Have a great week ahead,

Addicted to CAS Challenge #97 - Stitched

Hi there blog friends ~
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS. Our hostess is Ceal, and we have a new super talented Guest Designer ~ Maria Tchotcheva 

Here is my card: 

I used all stitched elements on this card, and watercolored the trees and pumpkin. I wanted to keep the design CAS, so I refrained from adding stitched clouds :) And, that was it!

The winner of this challenge will receive a gift card for 5 Euro at Create a Smile Stamps, so we hope you'll stop by the challenge blog and play along with us...

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fun and crafty weekend ~
