Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge # 196

Hi everyone ~ It's time for the next Anything Goes Challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More! Our sponsor is Eureka Stamps, and they are offering 3 digital images to the winner! Here is my card:

I've been on a watercoloring kick lately, so I used Brushos for the SSS flowers and leaves, and stamped the sentiment in Versafine ink. To add a little shine, I covered the sentiment with clear embossing powder, and for sparkle, I added a few PTI Rain Stones.

We would love to have you join us in this week's challenge...feel free to submit your card at the ATSM Blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Addicted to CAS Challenge #89 - Petals

Hi there, blog friends ~
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our Code Word is 'Petals'...Here are some details:
- Our Hostess is the amazing Valentyna
- Our Sponsor is QKR Stampede, and they are offering 3 digi images to the winner.
- Our Guest Designer is the super sweet and incredibly talented Julie Beech!

Here is my card:

My flower and sentiment were stamped with the Papertrey Ink 2016 Anniversary set called Painted Petals. I love that the flowers and leaves are multi-step stamping, and so is the sentiment...so fun! I used 3 colors on the blooms, and some new ink colors on this card: Lovely Lady and Mint Julep. I added a few Rainstones for some sparkle, and mounted the stitched panel on Lovely Lady cardstock ~

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you're having a fun and crafty weekend, and that you'll stop by the Addicted to CAS Blog and play along with us!

Happy Birthday, Sandie!

Photo credit: Etsy

Hello again ~
This is a special post, in honor of my former teamie, Sandie Munro, who is celebrating a very special birthday! Sandie is a very sweet person, an amazingly talented CAS designer, and a lover of all things 'Purple'! 

Kylie is having a Surprise Linky Party, and the DT girls from Time Out are holding an Extra Challenge in Sandie's honor! The theme is CAS with the optional twist of purple ~

Happy, Happy Birthday, Sandie! I hope you had a wonderful day with family and friends, and that all of your birthday wishes come true!

I used one of my favorite PTI stamp sets, Embellished Elegance for this card. I don't have a lot of purple ink pads that match, so this card is monochromatic, except for the leaves. A small pearl on the center bloom, and a touch of Wink of Stella on all the flowers, and that was it!

Feel free to join us in wishing Sandie a Happy Birthday at Kylie's Linky Party or the Time Out Challenge ...there's still plenty of time!

Thanks so much for stopping by today ~

Addicted to Stamps & More #194 - CAS

Hello there, blog friends ~
It's time for another CAS challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More! Our Sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers, and Kylie is offering a $15.00 gift certificate to her store for the winner!

Here is my card:

I'm really enjoying my new Reverse Confetti dies, so for this card, I created an ombre effect with Distress Inks, and colored this sweet little girl with Copic markers. After I stamped the sentiment strip, I thought it ‘needed something’...so, out came my embossing paste and diagonal stripes stencil. A few small silver sequins, and it was done and dusted :)

I hope you'll have some time to stop by the ATSM Blog to check out all the beautiful inspiration by my teamies...and of course, we would love it if you play along with us!

This week's Cue Card at CASology is 'Stencil', so I am adding this card to their challenge, as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
