Hooray let’s Celebrate with CAS-ual Fridays

 Hello, I’m over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today with a couple of cards I made using the "Sassy Celebration" stamp set and the "Hooray" Dies.




For my first card I started by ink blending some Catherine Pooler Inks onto some white card stock.  Then I stenciled over the top with the same color of ink using the "Modern Petals" stencil.
I die cut the Hooray three times and adhered them all together.  The top layer is embossed with glitter embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment in black and adhered the die cut on top, offsetting it slightly so it looks like a shadow.  I added some 4 petals die cuts, matted the panel onto some black card stock and adhered it to a top folding card with foam tape.




For my next card I sponged some Catherine Pooler inks onto a piece of white card stock then placed the "Bold Trellis" stencil over the top and wiped it with a wet baby wipe to take some of the ink away.  I love the look this gives.  



I hope you like my cards and I have inspired you to get crafty!

WWC295 - Karen's Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello, it's time for a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday.  Karen is our host this week with "All About Occasions".
I've made a Christmas card this week to add to my slowly growing collection.  I love the gnome trend at the moment but don't have any in my stash so I drew my own!  I coloured him in with Ohuhu alcohol markers and cut him out with my Scan n Cut.
I added a sentiment from  "The Man With The Bag" stamp set from Catherine Pooler Designs.







We would love to see you join in on the challenge.  All you have to do is make a card for any occasion and link it up to the challenge blog HERE.  Make sure you check out all the other DT cards for some inspiration.
You have until Tuesday, 3rd November at 10.00am Melbourne Time or Monday 2nd November 5pm US Mountain Time to link up your project.

A Card in a Box with CAS-ual Fridays

Hello, I'm over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today with a fun box card filled with Pretty Posies flowers.

I have made the square box cards before but this is the first rectangle one I have made.  It just gives you that little bit more room to play with.  They are pretty quick and easy to make and there are plenty of tutorials on you tube on how to make the box.  This one was made from one piece of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock.  I added some patterned paper that I have been hoarding and matched the colors with Catherine Pooler inks for the flowers and leaves. 

You can find more details on the CAS-ual Fridays blog if you're interested.

I am entering the following challenges:








I hope you like my box of flowers and I have inspired you to make one.
