CAS Mix Up, CASology, Kathy's 30 Day Color Challenge, Muse, SSS Flickr Group

Hi everyone,
I've been creating lots of cards in the last few days, so I am adding a few of them to some current challenges ~ My first card is for CASology #206 for the Cue Card ‘Art’ :






I created this card yesterday, but with overcast skies, I had to wait to photograph it...then, a few hours ago, I noticed that my blog friend, Karren J. posted her card, which is very similar...I sure hope she doesn't mind that I'm submitting this card :)
I used a splatter stencil from Stamplorations, added the brush from WPlus9, and a sentiment from PTI.


***************

My next card is for three challenges - July CAS Mix Up - For the theme, Stamping, Markers, Your Choice (Die Cuts), Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #49 'Come Color With Us', and Kathy’s 30 Day Color Challenge




And, here is my card:




I had a lot of fun making this card...I used stamps and dies from the 'You're So Sweet' set, and colored them with Zig markers. I added Glossy Accents to the cherries, watermelon and strawberry, and clear WOS to the apple and pear. I love the font on this sentiment, too!


*************** 

My last card is for the current Muse Card Challenge #174 - Tracey McNeely is our Muse this week, and I just love her card:



Here is my take on Tracey's card:



I finally bought this die set, so when it came in the mail this week, I couldn't wait to play...I die cut the animals with Soft Stone cardstock, and added Gravel Gray, patterned paper and Copic markers for contrast and detail. I used SSS Sea Glass ink for the background, and added a tiny butterfly for a pop of color. And, that was it for me!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are all having a great weekend ~

I know I've said this before, Bar, but I love visiting your blog! Each of these cards are adorable! I LOVE that rainbow coloured ink splatter, the little elephant with his striped ear is so cute, and the fruity card does look extremely juicy with its glossy accents and WOS!

Three amazing designs, my friend! LOVE your art card ... very creative and fun. And those fruits ... they look so yummy. Love the fresh bright colours of summer. And your critters are adorable. Great take on Tracy's card. Always inspired when I drop by for a visit. :) And thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

Tracey McNeely said...

Barb I have spent a long time going through you post! I think you have created 3 fantastic designs! I have never seen that Stamplorations stencil before, fantastic the way your coloured with used it for CASology! Second card again I have never seen that SSS fruit set before and headed over to find out that is was on sale cheap and out of stock! :( Ha ha Finally this is the first card that has even made me take a second look at the Jungle Friends Die-namics that is now on my wish list. A fabulous scene inspired by my Muse. Thank you so much for sharing with us at CASology and Muse this week!

Betty Keefe said...

Cat Craig said...

Barb your art card is fabulous...I love the ink puddle. Your fruits are so sweet and cute and the color is fantastic. Your Muse card is just awesome, love it .

Love your safari-take on the Muse and your perfectly CAS art card! So glad you joined us at Muse and CASology this week!

Judy1223 said...

Barb, another three-card- home run post! Amazing cards, all of them! I really love your CASology card...I've never seen that splatter stencil and I really love the colors you combined! Thanks for playing along at CASology again this week! ;)

Bonnie said...

I love all three of these cards, Barb! Such a fun variety! Your fruit is so beautifully colored and I love the variations of shine! Love your artsy card and the sweet animal cards too! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

Joyce said...

These three cards are all so wonderful. I really love how you created that splotch of color on your first card, and the sentiment is perfect. Your fruit scene is so wonderfully colored, and your last card is just adorable. I need to remember to use grey as a silhouette color--so much softer than black, which is what I typically reach for. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

Aileen Ryan said...

Wow great collection of cards Barb, love them all. Love how you created the paint colours on the first card with the painbrush.

Kay Miller said...

Oh my goodness! Each and every one of these are just darling Barb! I am in love with the last one with the little zoo animals! The soft colors are just fantastic! That first one is so simple, but yet so amazing with the watercolored paint! You are definitely on a roll! (Hugs and happy week!)

Jen W. said...

You've been busy, Barb! I love that gorgeous watercolorspot on the first card and I think it's different enough from Karren's to not cause a kerfuffle! ;) Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Marilyn said...

Barb, love your elephant and giraffe card for the Muse challenge ... it is perfect interpretation of Tracey's card. Of course, your other cards are perfect, too.

Kate said...

Great cards. Your fruit looks so juicy and inviting. I just love those jungle animals - been on my wish list for a while now. Your arty piece is amazing!!!

Melissa said...

Barb, I love your colorful take on the CASology cue word! Such a pretty, perfectly CAS design with it's trio of subtle embellishments and the placement of the design elements on the lower portion of the card! Love it!!!

Thanks so much for joining us over at CASology! :)
