CASology Challenge #237 - Guest Designer

Hello everyone,
A few weeks ago, I won the CASology Challenge with this card and today I am honored to be the Guest Designer for the Cue Card 'Score'.  Here is my card:

I added random score lines in the upper left-hand corner of my card for my take on the Cue Card. In case they are difficult for you to see on screen, here is a close up:

I created a mask and used Distress Inks for the 'globe' and Copic markers for the astronaut. The die cut sentiment is from SSS, and everything else is from MFT. This was a challenging Cue Card for me, and I can't wait to see everyone's project this week :)

Thanks so much to Melissa and the Design Team ~ I always enjoy playing along at CASology!

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

Addicted to CAS Challenge #105 - Wood

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS 
As you can see, our Code Word is 'Wood'
Our Sponsor is STAMPlorations
Our Hostess is Ceal
And, our Guest Designer for this challenge is super sweet and incredibly talented Magic Flying Boots (Jen)!

Here is my take on the Code Word:

I thought this would be a great card to add to a book for my granddaughter, Desi...although, I think she does more reading on her iPad these days..what can I say ~
I used a new MFT set called 'Our Story'. I colored the elements with Copic markers, sponged the rays of light from the lamp, and added the woodgrain cardstock to depict a hardwood floor. Fun, sweet and CAS, just the way I like it :)

So that's it for me today...if you would like to check out the cards that my amazing teamies created and join us in this challenge, come on over to the Addicted to CAS Blog ~ We would love to see you there!

I hope you all have a great weekend...Thanks so much for stopping by,

CASology Challenge #236 - Romance; Tag You're It Challenge #65

Hi everyone ~ A quick post to share a few cards for two really fun challenges:

Since this week's cue card at CASology is 'Romance', I thought I would use a new to me set from PTI ~

I tried to create an ombre effect when I stamped the swans, but it's subtle and doesn't show up very well on screen. I used my Clarity brushes on the background and added clear EP to the sentiment for some shine. 


When I saw Lisa's adorable tag at the Tag You're It Challenge, I couldn't resist playing along with another new MFT set ~

I colored the bears with Copic markers and added the hearts, bow and a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps.
That's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by,
