Red & Goldie!

Hi everyone ~
Just a brief post...I have three cards to share with you today. The first card is for this week’s challenge at Addicted to Stamps for the theme 'Make Your Mark’ (I used Copic markers), and for the Addicted to CAS challenge for the code word ‘Texture’:

Did you know that this stamp and die set was designed by JJ Bolton? And that she actually collaborated with her son to create all of these images...How fun is that? JJ talks about it in her post Here and Here.
 I used a PTI Impression Plate for the card base, and my MFT ‘Blueprints 13‘ die for the banner (part of a very generous gift from a sweet blog friend).  


My next card is also for the ATCAS Challenge, but for this one, I used the ‘Faux Texture’ technique, which I learned on Jen McGuire’s You Tube video Here


My last card is for the Color Challenge at The Card Concept and this week’s challenge at CASology. The Cue Card for this week is ‘Bee’, and this is my very literal interpretation...Check out all the sparkle on that bumble bee ~

So, that’s it for me ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!
