CCC #199


It's time for a new cue card at CASology!
This week our cue is:

I used Papertrey Ink's Love You to Pieces set for my card this week. The images and fun sentiments in this set are perfect to make cards for children young and old. The images and/or sentiments can be placed to maximize your white space.


Hope to see you play along with us this week!

colourQ #343 and Essentials by Ellen May Pin-Sights Challenge


Happy Tuesday!
It's time for a new colour palette at the colourQ.

I did a watercolour wash of Calypso Coral on my card front and then I embossed the Essentials by Ellen Mondo Hydrangea with gold embossing powder. The finish it off I die cut the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies Many Thanks in black and adhered it to the card panel. the entire panel was adhered to the card base with foam tape.

I used the Essentials by Ellen May Pin-Sights Challenge as inspiration for my card.


Head over to the colourQ to see what the rest of the Design Team has created this week, there are some amazing projects.  I hope to see you play along this week!

MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge #281 - take two


Another card for this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #281!

I was so inspired by the projects made by the Design Team and was especially taken with the colours and tropical theme that Kay Miller used for her card. The perfect opportunity to bring out Tiki Party o play. That set has seen far too little ink. I sponged my background using two different Distress Inks--Salty Ocean and Twisted Citron. I flicked some water onto in after I was finished sponging. I die cut a Blue Raspberry Die-namics Stitched Circle Frame and then stamped and Copic coloured several images from Tiki Party.

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #281


A card for this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #281!
This is another project that I started last weekend when the girls came here to play. I love this sweet poodle from Lucky Dog. I use some pink chevron paper for my background  and popped her up on some foam tape and adhered her over the black white heat embossed sentiment strip.  I added a few sequins on the white Wonky Stitched Circle to add some interest.

Tag You're It challenge #47 Reminder!

Happy Friday!

There is still time to play along with Tag You're It Challenge #47!

I created my tag using Clearly Besotted butterflies stamped with ombre inks and the details embossed in silver. The vellum leaves are Wild Greenery Die-namics from MFT Stamps. 

This week was another busy week. My daughter began her training for her summer job and we came down to Todonto for a couple days for her to go to see Justin Bieber with some friends from high school. Picking her up early this morning to head home for her first shift. I am so looking forward to this weekend. I hope your is wonderful!

Inspired by All the Little Things #15


Jeanne Jachna chose the inspiration for this week's Inspired by All the Little Things Challenge #15!

As soon as I saw the Inspiration I knew what I wanted to do. I used the Hero Arts Tiny Flags woodblock stamp along with Butterbar to Orange Soda ombre ink. I added a Concord & 9th sentiment and a couple of grey fishtail banners to finish it off. I think this would work nicely for a masculine birthday card.
