You're So Deer To Me

Hi there, blog friends! I have three cards to share, so let's get started ~

My first card is for the current SSS challenge on Flickr for the theme 'Anything Goes'.

They say, 'The apple doesn't fall far from the tree', and that is so true! Kay Miller is my dear blog friend, and her daughter Kaylea designed this darling SSS stamp set called ‘So Deer’...and by the way, she is 14 years old!!! I am completely smitten with this stamp set, and I couldn't wait to ink it up!
I started by stamping the deer and creating masks so I could add the clouds, flowers and grass. I colored everything with Copics and added a touch of WOS to the butterfly and flowers...and that was it :)


For my 2nd card, I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the theme from CASology (Season) and Addicted to Stamps & More (CAS).

I'm really looking forward to summer, so it was a no-brainer for the CASology challenge and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches worked perfectly. I used a circle die to create a stencil for the sunburst and added light blue shading behind the penguin, who was colored with Copics. A CAS design, so it worked out great for ATSM as well...and there you have it!


My last card is for this week's Muse Challenge and our Muse is Kay Miller! Here is Kay's card:

Isn't it gorgeous?! Here is my take on her card:

I used Kay's layout, but instead of stamping, I embossed my MFT NYC die on pale gray cardstock and added the roses die. I love the font on this WPlus9 stamp set (same as Kay), so I chose this sentiment...and, that was it for today!

Have a great week ahead ~ 
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Addicted to CAS Challenge #110

Hi everyone ~ Happy Saturday! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS, and this time our code word is 'Grunge'! Our hostess for this challenge is Jaydee, and our sponsor is STAMPlorations! Also, Ashwini will be joining us as our Guest Designer!

Here is my card:

Yes, it's this cute little coffee cup again :) I have to admit that I had a really hard time coming up with a design for this code word, so I hope my splatters and splats are ok. Keeping with a CAS design, I decided to go monochromatic with a pop of pink and my new MFT stitched frame. 

I hope you'll stop by the ATCAS Challenge Blog to check our all of the DT girls fun cards. The challenge runs for 2 weeks ~ Come join the fun!

Have a great weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by.
