Pinks and Greys - CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #210


No automatic alt text available.

Hello and happy Friday!  We have a fun colour challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Blog today.  We challenge you to make a card using Pinks and Greys!  Two of my favourite colour combinations!  I have used the "Bushy Tailed" stamp set for my card today.  I coloured him in with alcohol markers,  cut him out using my scan n cut and popped him up onto a stencilled background.  The sentiment is from the same Bushy Tailed stamp set.

              


If you would like the chance to win a $25 voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card using pink and greys and link it up on the challenge blog here.  Michele will double the prize to $50 if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card!  Good luck!

Muse Challenge #285

Hello and happy Monday!  My card today is for the current Muse challenge and I'm doing an Aileen and entering at the last minute! LOL  I had a busy weekend with lots of visitors so my card making took a back seat.  

The Muse this week is Anita with this beautiful card.


            

I was inspired by the leaves and the white frame.  After I stencilled with Distress inks, I sprayed my card panel with perfect pearls which doesn't really show up in the photo but it is very shimmery in real life!

                                 


                                             Thanks for looking and have a great week.

Muse Christmas Challenge

Hello and happy Friday.  My card today is for the Muse Christmas Visions 110 challenge.  Cornelia is the Muse with this beautiful card.  

                                                            

I was inspired by the trees and the beautiful sky on Cornelia's card.  I pulled out another old stamp set of mine from Hero Arts called Winter Trees and inked it up with my Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink pad.  I used a quickie glue pen on the branches and sprinkled with diamond glitter.  The sentiment is from a set I got with a magazine.

        

Do you like my new Shell Logo?   My very talented friend Tristan from Tinstar Designs made it for me.


Thanks for looking!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #209



Hello and happy Friday!  We have a fun sketch challenge for you today over at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog.  I have used a combination of flowers from the Peace and Comfort and Peaceful Garden stamp sets.  I stamped with Catherine Pooler Inks and cut all my images out with my Scan  Cut.  The sentiment is from the Frankly stamp set.  There are some fun sentiments in that set and isn't that font beautiful!!






If you would like the chance to win a $25 voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card using the sketch as inspiration and link it up on the challenge blog here.  Michele will double the prize to $50 if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card!  Good luck!

Muse Card Club - Guest Muse #284

Hello and happy Monday!  I was so excited and honoured to be invited to be the Muse Guest designer for this week.  I love participating in the Muse challenges, it forces me to think!! LOL
If you haven't already visited the Muse challenge, do yourself a favour and click HERE to check it out. 

I decided to make a floral card for this weeks challenge because I love all things pretty!

I stamped this beautiful floral image from Catherine Pooler Designs Grateful Heart stamp set in the bottom left hand corner of my card panel.  I always seem to gravitate to that spot, possibly because I am left handed.  I coloured the flowers in with Kaszazz Alcohol Markers and just added a touch of grey to the leaves.  I added a small strip of patterned paper along the bottom and stamped the sentiment from a Close to my Heart stamp set.

Here's my card.


Thanks for looking and I would love you to join in on the fun over at Muse this week!



Less is More Challenge #380



Hello, I'm back again with another card this time for the One Layer Floral Challenge over at Less is More.
Sometimes I forget how hard a one layer card is until I make a mistake and then realise I can't cover my mistake up!!  I stamped a little bit more than I would usually on this card because it just didn't seem to look right and then I added too many little flowers so I had to add more leaves.  Anyway, I'm not really happy with it but I ran out of time to do another! 
So here's my card.   I used CAS-ual Fridays Peaceful Garden and Peace and Comfort stamp sets with Catherine Pooler Designs Ink.

CAS Christmas Card Challenge

Hello, my card today is for the September CAS Christmas Card Challenge.  I almost ran out of time to enter but then I saw a reminder from Nance on Instagram so I got cracking!  I have used another old stamp today from Penny Black called Adornment.  I have had this stamp for many years!   I stamped the wreath in CP Designs Rockin Red Ink and then heat embossed it with a clear sparkle embossing powder.  I stamped the Merry Christmas from a Kaisercraft set with Versafine Black Onyx ink.  It is hard to get a good photo of all the sparkle but it is there!
