CAS(E) This Sketch; SSS Flickr Challenge; CAS Colors & Sketches

Hi there blog friends,
I have a few cards and a tag to share with you...The first card is for this week's challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch

I wanted to use something other than balloons, so I pulled out the very first stamp set I ever bought from PTI...Up, Up & Away, and paired it with SSS 'You' sentiment. The clouds were die cut from the blue cardstock and the card base is peeking through.


This week's challenge at SSS Flickr Group is titled 'Come Tag Along', so I created a shaker tag ~

These cute little critters are from an exclusive set by SSS and Mama Elephant called 'Skater Kids', and the tag and sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh. 


CAS Colors & Sketches is a 'new to me' challenge, and I thought it would be fun to play along ~

This was a fun card to create...I used my NBUS Paper Smooches Paint Palette die set and watercolored the palette and brushes with KOI watercolors. Once dry, I gave everything 2 coats of Glossy Accents and added a sentiment from PTI. The spatters were created with my sprays, and the handles on the brushes are cherry woodgrain paper. 

And that's it for me ~ Thank you so much for stopping by, and of course for your sweet comments! Have a great week,

Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #182

Hello there, blog friends ~
It's time for another fun challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More! This week, our theme is 'Make Your Mark', so get out those Copic, Distress, and Zig markers or colored pencils and watercolors, and show us what you've got!  We have two Sponsors (Robyn's Fetish and QKR Stampede), and each is offering three digital images from their store:

When I saw This Card created by my super talented blog friend, Loll, I was so inspired, that I grabbed my biggest floral stamp, silver EP, and my 'Ziggies', and got to work...
Here is my card:

I used the yellow and light green markers, then added shadows with orange and dark green, just to give it some depth. I also allowed the one leaf to extend off the edge, as I'll be sending this card in my PTI Bulk Mail Envelope.

So, come on over to the Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge Blog to see what my teamies have created, and play along with us!

I am also entering this card in Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a great week ~
