Hello, I hope you are having a good day! I am back as promised with another card using the latest release from Spellbinders- Four Petal Collection. Today I am using two of the products from the release, The Four Petal Bloom Reflection and the Thanks Enclosed Sentiments. I am also using Spellbinder’s Elliptical Oval Die that I recently purchased. This release is so fun and has some really terrific products that you should check out. Also, if you don’t have this Elliptical Oval Die, it is so pretty and works wonderfully as a backdrop and happens to be on SALE right now!
I love how this card turned out. I am trying to make more Clean and Simple cards this year. One more note…I shortened the front panel of my card so I could incorporate the yellow stripe on the inside.
I had a few minutes today and decided to try and make a CAS card. I went searching for a challenge to join and decided on the Inkspirational Challenge along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge once again. When I looked at the photo I saw palm trees, a blue sky, and tan sand. Yes, there is the orange VW Bus but I didn’t have anything that would work for that so I stuck with Palm Trees. The Palm Tree I chose to use is the older one from MFT. Then I looked at the Tic Tac Toe Board and made my selection of diagonal; Watercolor, Free, and Any Sentiment and went to work.
Card Details: Watercolor wash background using SU inks. The Palm Tree Die is older and from MFT and the Miss you is from Pretty Pink Posh.
I hope you are having a wonderful day and find something to do that brings you JOY! Nanc’
Hello, I have a quick post for you today! I am playing along with the Time Out Challenge where the Theme is Down to Earth. Have you ever made a purchase and thought it was such a great idea and then you got it you were a bit disappointed? Well, that is how I feel about this stamp and die set from Hero Arts. One of the US dies is so large it will never fit on a card base. ( I guess I should have read the fine print more carefully.) LOL I thought I would love it and find lots of uses for it, and that has not been the case. Well, that is until today when I saw this challenge starting at Time Out, I decided to give it a chance. I think the background stamp is okay, and I am glad I decided to put the sun-ray in the background as I think it helps.
I decided to make two cards while I was at it. Below is the second one. I added a drop shadow as you couldn’t see the US Map very well.
Card Details: States Stamp and Die set is from Hero Arts, The sun-ray is a stencil and I used Oxide inks for my blending. I had to come up with the from and the someone who from other stamps sets. On the second card it says in the inside…misses you!
Not sure I will play with it again, but who knows!
Hello, I finally broke down and purchased this darling coffee set from The Greetery and I am so glad I did. I have been keeping my eye on a fun challenge called theGlobal Design Project and this week they asked us to CASE a card. I decided that I would try to make a repetitive background with my coffee cups like they did with their world die. After I was done making my background paper I decided it needed a bit of something more and I added the little brown hearts from Verve. The sentiment is a mix and match of two other stamp sets from Verve as well. I added the leaves and the bow to mimic the feather and string on the designer’s card. I cut the spoon out of gold paper and the bow die is Paper Smooches.
This is my second post for the day but I am cutting it down to the wire with the Sketch Challenge over at MFT. I started using Oxide inks to make my beach scene, but the sand itself is just kraft cardstock. I should have given it some texture, but totally forgot. Using my Beach Scene builders Palm Tree, one of the shells from that set, along with a starfish shell from Impression Obsession, I managed to check off the circle elements from the sketch. The miss you sentiment is also from MFT. I sure did struggle with the banner. I made four different ones and still not overly happy with it. The fun scalloped rectangle I believe is Spellbinders.
Thanks for stopping by I sure do appreciate your sweet comments! Nanc’
I have a very CAS card for you today that was completely inspired by a card I received from a dear friend- Patti from Stationary Styles.This card inspired me so much that I decided to make my own die-cut of Florida on my Silhouette Cameo. This card has prompted tons of possibilities for sentiments and I have made quite a few. I have even made some Christmas cards too. These are very popular in the store where I sell my cards. The sentiment for this card is from Simon Says Stamps.
This card really speaks to me today as it’s my daughter in law’s birthday, and I am missing them so very much. We have never gone this long without seeing one another.
I am linking this up over at Just Add Ink where the challenge is the Letter F- Florida!
Hi, I hope you are having a great day! Over at Creative with Stamps, they have a new challenge starting and the word this month is Tree. Being a Florida girl I went with the obvious Palm Tree. This card was fun to throw together. I am also going to link it up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Anything Goes!! I have a few interesting card details below:
Card Details: Oxide Ink Background, used the MFT cloud die upside down for my “White-Capped Waves”, the sandhill is sponged and splatted and then cut with an edge-die from Papertrey Ink, Palm Trees and bare feet are Kitchen Sink Stamps, the Miss You is Pretty Pink Posh.
Hello, I am your hostess this week at Just Us Girls and it’s Color Week. I have a Spring-like Color palette for you all that are dealing with snow in hopes that it will warm you up a bit, and remind you that eventually it will feel like Spring! We have been having really hot temperatures here in Florida and appears that we may skip Spring altogether. 😦
Today’s card is a mix of MFT and SU. I just adore these MFT elephants and it was time to get them out and play with them again. I did some emboss resist and didn’t worry too much about my ink blending and am rather happy with the results. The Ele, florals, and butterflies are MFT. The Ele was colored with Prismas and the sentiment is from SU.
I sure hope you will consider coming over to JUGS and joining us this week! Who knows you may even become our Chic of the Week!
Hello, I made this card a while ago and wanted so bad to make a replacement card this week, but that didn’t happen. So, I am afraid you are stuck with this one. The fun DP is what carries this card, along with the fun shell dies from IO. The wave die is from MFT. The sentiment and square dies are SU.
Now I know this card didn’t inspire you…so PLEASE head on over to Just Us Girls, as their is a ton of it this week over there! I would also like to welcome our new Monthly guest Ros Crawford. I am so happy you are with us Ros! We know our guests will be inspired by your work and we hope you will enjoy yourself too!
Hello, Hope you are having a good day! I have been eyeing this challenge over at Addicted to CASand decided to take sometime today to join in. The challenge is rainbow. Hopefully the added embellishments doesn’t disqualify me from CAS. However if it does, I had fun just the same.
I am also linking up to the Addicted to Stamps and More site where it’s Anything Goes.
I am also enjoying the 30 day coloring challenge but unfortunately I missed yesterday and messed up my perfect track record. I know it’s not a huge deal in the grand scheme of life, but disappointed just the same.
The negative heart die is from SU, the hill stitched border is Lawn Fawn and the stamps and letter dies are MFT.
