CASology - Birthday - Take 2

Hi again,
A really quick post to share my second entry for the CASology Challenge. Here is my card: 

Back in August, Jen McGuire created a card and video demonstrating Wow Clear Gloss Ultra High Embossing Powder, and I loved the high gloss shine she achieved. Here is the LINK to that post. Then, in November, she also shared her thoughts about it in one of her ‘My Favorite Crafty Things’ Video . I used one coat of this EP, and was amazed at the shine! Here is a close-up:

Well, that's it for me today. I hope everyone is having a great day ~

Addicted to CAS - Challenge #56

Hi everyone,
It's that time again...A new challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our Code Word is 'Hugs & Kisses'! Our host is Deepti, and our sponsor for this challenge is Scribbles Designs and they are offering three digi's for the winner!

So, I grabbed my new PTI stamp and die set called Big Hugs for my card:

I used the partial die cutting technique for the Hugs die, stamped the remainder of the sentiment from the same set, and added a gold foil die cut 'xoxo' from Mama Elephant. I completed the card with a red heart from the Confetti die and added Glossy Accents to give it some shine.

It's difficult to see the gold foil on the xoxo sentiment on my screen, so here is a close up:

If you would like to play along with us, feel free to check out all of the beautiful cards my team mates and Guest Designer Julia have created on the Blog...we would love to have you join us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

CASology Challenge #131 & Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes

Hi there,
Just a quick post today to share a card I created for this week's challenge at CASology. The Cue Card is 'Birthday', so I grabbed my new Mama Elephant 'happy' die and got busy:

I'm not sure if it's my pc screen, but I'm finding it difficult to see the die cut alphas, so here is a close up:

I colored the cupcake and bunny with Copic markers, and added the birthday sentiment from PTI...and that was it!

I would also like to submit my card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. 

Thanks so much for stopping by,

CAS(E) This Sketch #107; Simon Says Stamp

Hi everyone,
I have two cards to share with you...the first one is for this week's challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch. Here is my card:

I flipped the sketch, and stamped the cityscape and inked/blended the background with Sea Glass ink and Audrey Blue to create a soft ombre effect. Then, I added a thin border with turquoise foil cardstock and Wink of Stella clear glitter on the sentiment. 


I also created a card for the current challenge at Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group for a 'Love' theme. Here is my card: 

A few months ago, I won the Heart Blooms die from Judy during a Blog Candy Giveaway, and love it! I created a stencil with the die and inked the hearts, stems and leaves, then just added the sentiment and enamel dots. Barb Engler is our 'Hostess' for the SSS Flickr Challenges, and I know she would love to have you join us!

And, since this die and stamp set is exclusive to SSS, I would also like to enter this card in the SSS Wednesday Challenge for the theme 'Have a Heart'!

I hope you are all having a fun weekend ~ Thanks for stopping by,
