CASology, Muse and a SSS/Lawn Fawn Flickr Co-Challenge

Hi everyone, 
I have a few cards to share today...the first is for this week's challenge at CASology for the cue card 'Mini':


Talk about minimal! I've had these eyeglass dies in my stash for a while and haven't used them until now. So, I added pink vellum for a 'Rose colored glasses' effect and a computer generated sentiment using AR Bonnie for the font. The center square is 2x2 and the card size is 5.5 square (I have 6x6 envies). The only thing I added to this card was 2 tiny gems and a black mat...Done and dusted!

My second card is for this week's Muse challenge, and the Guest Muse for this week is my uber talented and sweet team mate from ATSM, Shona Chambers! Here is Shona's card:

 
And, here is my take on her inspiration card:



I used my new Altenew Painted Butterflies for the side panel, and stamped them in rainbow order with various inks, and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant, called Cross My Heart. I stayed true to Shona's CAS design and added three small sequins...and that was it!

My last project is for the current SSS/Lawn Fawn Flickr Co-Challenge, and the theme is “Get Crafty with Kraft”.


I had a lot of fun creating this project...I used my Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die, the cute pup from SSS You are Pawesome stamp and die set and the heart balloon stencil, also from SSS. The challenge is being hosted by Barb (SSS) and Nancy (Lawn Fawn), and I have to say, I had a lot of fun pairing my goodies from both companies!

So, that's it for me...I hope everyone is having a great week! Thanks for stopping by,

Oh, my. What a fun filled post. Love all three of your cards. The first one--love that little mini focal point, and just adore that you made those glasses rose colored. So fun. And, your MUSE card is stunning--I am in love with that butterfly set, and love your design. Third card is just so darn cute, just like my own puppy. I should have made him a card like this for his 2nd birthday last week.

Hey Barb!! All of your cards are amazing. You did an amazing job on all of them. Those tiny glasses are so super cute!! Thanks for playing along with us this week at CASology.

fabulous Barb. Lovely cards all three.

Julie B said...

Love all 3 Barb , especially the flutterbys. :)

Shona Chambers said...

Well, haven't you been busy!!! Oh my gosh your CASology card is incredible. How did you cut such tiny pieces of vellum for the lenses?? The rose vellum is perfect and this so has to be a winner. Your Muse card is sensational. I love that Altenew butterfly and it looks so beautiful in the rainbow colours. And well done using only 3 sequins, I know how hard that can be!!! And your puppy card is so adorable. Your colouring is so good and love how his colouring is similar to the kraft CS but you still made him pop. You definitely deserve a sit down and a big piece of cake after all this hard work!!!

Great projects Barb! I love your 'rose colored' glasses! What a perfect idea for MINI. And who doesn't love that pup from SSS?

Chark said...

you've been busy--these are all so wonderful. I think the glasses one is my fave, but I love each of them!

Darnell J Knauss said...

If it were up to me, you'd be getting awards for all the challenges you entered with these three outstanding cards, Barb! Your mini is so perfect for "seeing the world through rose-colored glasses," lol!! Your MUSE is just divine and your kraft card simply stole my heart!! Hugs, Darnell

Hazel Hodgkins said...

Oh Barb, these are fun cards! All are so cute! I was instantly drawn to those rose-coloured glasses!! How fab are they!?! Can't believe that you found such tiny gems to place in the corners of each lens. Absolutely fabulous take on the cue! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!

I came to check out your beautiful Muse card, and was treated to a couple of extras! Great post :)

Well, I thought I'd left you a comment earlier, given that I LOVE x LOVE your trio of amazing cards, but apparently I didn't! Must have been too carried away with awe! The mini glasses (which you so sweetly shared with me) is pure fun! As for the butterflies...swooning! Seriously swooning! You've worked magic with these beauties. The puppy is A-DOR-A-BLE! I want to order one...not just the image, but a real puppy! One of these days..Happy Monday, wonderful friend!
Hugs~c
