Who Are You Thinking Of?

Hello everyone!! First let me begin by saying THANK YOU to all of the ladies over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

I received Honorable Mention for the card that I made last week for their challenge.  How neat is that!! If you missed the card, check out the mention here.

The card I create was a cute one, I must say.  The winner Semee, her card is truly amazing and her win was well deserved.  I might have to CASE her card.  I have to ask her. (I just did, waiting for a response, LOL).

Now on to the matter at hand.

I’m here with CAS(E) this Sketch #86.  Today sketch was done by Sam Simpson.  Its simple and pretty.

Here is my card:

Thinking Of You

The strip of pattern paper is from Bo Bunny which was in my Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful Die set to cut my butterfly out of Simon Says Stamp Cardstock that came in the August Card Kit, Sunshine and Orange Peel.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple: Thinking of You Mini Stamp set to stamp my sentiment three times with Papertrey Ink’s Summer Sunrise Ink Pad.

For the add touch I added Stampin’ Up! rhinestone to the butterfly wings.

What do you think?  Let me know.

Cute! Who, Me?

Hello everyone! I’m back today after all of the great news I had to share this week.  Back to work for me!!

I’m here today with the Muse Challenge #77.  The Muse this week is Marion Vagg.  Her card this week is so cute and simple.

Take a look at Marion Vagg Card:

I love her owl!  I do not own an owl stamp set, I look high and low, and my stash doesn’t contain an owl.  I couldn’t believe that.  I must get one.

So I went for my brand new stamp the Dragon from Sweet Stamp Shop.

Take a look:

Cute Dragon

Yes, isn’t this dragon the cutest little monster you ever saw!

Can you believe I colored him.  Yes, I took out my Copic Markers and sat and colored.  I need to do that more often.  It was so relaxing.  I need more colors too. I used BG49, Y19 and E37.

I colored my Stampin’ Up! rhinestones with a Copic Marker, Y19.  I wanted to use black enamel dots but ran out of them and I’m glad I did.  I think the yellow color looks so much better since its the same color of the dragons belly.

I thought I was done then, but realized I wanted to add and black frame around my dragon.  So I used my Copic Multi-Liner to create the boarder.

I wanted my card to be as CAS as possible so, I keep everything to the minimal.

What do you think?  I think my little dragon came out so cute!  Yes, you!!

Flowers…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing with the Muse Challenge #76.  I missed it last week.  I created a card but didn’t get a chance to post it.  So I wanted to make sure I get this week’s card in.

This week’s Muse is Therese Calvird.  Take a look at her card.

friends

This challenge was a little difficult for me because I hardly create cards with flowers on it.  I have the hardest time placing the flowers or even building them.

I gave it a try this go round and I’m ok with the results.  I’m not in love with it but I think its a good start.

Take a look at my card:

Hey you are my favorite

I used Simon Says Stamp Favorite Flowers Stamp Set to create my flower bed.

I used Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise ink and Hero Arts Green Hills Shadow Ink.

I tried to make this card as simple as I could because I really don’t know how flowers should look on a card.

Please let me know what you think, good or bad.

Do You See Spots and Dots?

Hello everyone! I’m here today playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

wed-newchallenge-headerThis week the challenge is SPOTS AND DOTS!

This was a fun challenge to play with.  At first I wondered what in the world to do.  I wasn’t sure want to make that has spots and dots.

I pondered for a while.

Take a look at my card:

HB spots and dots

I looked at my stash, then remembered I needed to make a birthday card for someone special this coming Saturday so I decided to use my Simon Says Stamp Balloon dies.

Once I made that decision, I looked on Pinterest for some inspiration.  I immediately saw balloons with spots.  So I knew I would create spots on my balloon.

To do that, I use my Simon Says Stamp Medium Dots Stencil and Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste to create my white spots on my balloon.

To create my spots, I used my Stampin’ Up! Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I added some Stampin’ Up! White Bakers Twine to bottom of my ballon and tied a bow.

For my sentiment, I wanted to add a pop of color so I decided on red, that surely would pop, lol.  I used Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Die Cut to create my sentiment.

So what do you think?

Let me know. I would love to hear from you.

Are You Enjoying Your Journey?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with CAS(E) this sketch #85.  This week’s sketch is from N@Ali.  I love this sketch, its clean and simple.

Take a look at my card:

Enjoy the Journey 2

I love how this card turned out.  It has the CAS factors.  One focal point, one sentiment, little embellishments and a lot of white space!

I used my brand new Life’s Journey stamp set and Super Geotag die from Simon Says Stamp’s new release called This Is The Life.

I love this new set.  Life really is journey that we are on and we have no clue were we will end up.  There are times when we set our path and something happens that take of off that path.  Its up to you to get back on path no matter how hard it might, but we MUST enjoy the journey or it will not be worth it.

So what do you think?  Please let me know by leaving a comment below.
