The Ton Challenge



Hello, I am playing along with The Ton challenge for the month of July.  They have a beautiful mood board and I took my inspiration for my card from the pink skirt and the stripes.

I stamped the Peony Terrace background stamp with Versamark ink and white heat embossed it.  I then coloured with my Zig real brush markers, added a sentiment from the Large Peony set and a strip of striped cardstock.

Christmas in July CFC178

Hello and happy Friday!  We are celebrating Christmas in July over at The CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog this week.  I love making Christmas cards, I just need to remember to put them in the mail when the time comes!!
For my card this week, I used the Christmas Sparkle stamp set and the co-ordinating Ornament tag dies.  I silver heat embossed the stars on the card base and added a few blue ones for interest.  I stamped my sentiment onto the ornament along with the circle border in CP Designs Something Borrowed Ink.  I added a bit of sparkle with glue and glitter.

The Flower Challenge

Hello, I made my card today for The Flower Challenge - #10 Embossing Heat/Dry.

I used the Peony Terrace background stamp from The Ton and white heat embossed onto Bristol card stock.  I sponged CP Designs Ink in Pixie Dust and Flirty Fuchsia and added a sentiment from Altenew Label Love.  This card came together quite quickly so I think I'll make a few more in different colours for my stash.

Less is More and AAA cards collaboration

Hello, today I am playing along with the Less is More and AAA cards collaboration challenge.
The challenge is to use a coloured card base and keep it CAS.

I was very fortunate recently to win a stamp of my choice from The Ton's newest release on their blog hop.  My comment was chosen from the lovely Lisa Harrolle's blog, do yourself a favour and click here"Embellish my world" to see her amazing creations!  I chose the "Peony Terrace" cling background stamp and I have used it in the corners of my card.  I stamped it onto a pink card base with versamark ink then clear heat embossed.  I coloured the inside of the image with a white prisma pencil and lightly sponged over the top with Distress Ink in picked raspberry.  I stamped my sentiment from the Young at heart stamp set by CAS-ual Fridays exclusively for CP Stamp of Approval.

CAS-ual Fridays Tic Tac Toe

No automatic alt text available.


Hello and happy Friday!  Today's challenge #177 over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog is a fun Tic Tac Toe challenge.  You can choose any line horizontal, vertical or diagonal.

For my card I chose the middle line, monochromatic, add a tag and no embellishments.  I used a tag from the Tag Buddies die and stamped the sentiment from the Bold Wishes stamp set.  Then I pulled out my Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink pad and stamped the image from the Bold wishes across the bottom.  I also stamped it along the bottom of my card base and adhered the tag to my card.  I added a bow to the tag because in my opinion every tag needs a bow!  Then I thought, is that considered an embellishment!!  Well its not really an embellishment on my card if its on the tag is it?



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 one of the rows above 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!

Hello and happy Friday!  This week over at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog we are playing with colour.  The challenge is to use the colours Coral, Aqua and Grey on your card.

The Ton Tic Tac Toe

Hello, This is my second post for the day and my second card for The Ton Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I thought I would try the no line coloring, non rectangular, water color column while I had my supplies out.  I used a circle die to make the shape of my card and stamped the beautiful "Sending Peonies" stamp in old paper distress ink. Then I took to it with my zig markers and water.  I coloured the leaves in with Finetec Gold water colour paint.  I had to add some splatters because I got a mark on the white space!!  Click here to check out the challenge.
