I have to say I’m a proud of my card today.  Building scenes are hard for me, so I stepped out of my comfort zone and create one with this cute and fun stamp set.

I stamped, masked, drew in lines and colored.  It was fun and not so hard as I thought.

{Clean and Simple} CASology 211 – Dream

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Week 211 - Dream

Take a look at my card:

Dream (CAS)

When I saw this week’s cue card, I knew right away that I wanted to use Neat and Tangled Making Waves – Nice and Neat Dies.  I love how the clouds are particle cut out of the card stock.

Creating this card was a breeze.  I die cut the front of the white Bristol Smooth card panel using the Making Waves Die. Then I used a pencil to outline the circle, so that I knew where to apply the distress ink.  I started with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass to create the sky.  Then I came in with Distress Ink Broken China to darken it just a bit closer to the top of the sky.  After that I used Distress Ink Forest Moss to create the ground.

Once all of the colors were down, I applied tumbled glass again over the entire scene to lighten the sky and the grass.  Once I was satisfied with the way the scene looked, I used Concord & 9th Sophisticated Script Stamp Set and Clearsnap Colorbox Wicked Archival Ink to stamp the cue card word.

Then I placed a couple of dimensionals on the back of the card panel and placed it on top of the card base. Perfect!!!

I truly love how this card turned out. I think is absolutely perfect for this challenge. What do you think?

Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!

Sending Smiles (TDD)

I love how this card turned out.  I used one of those watercolor pieces that I create last week.

Watercolor pieces

Having these ready to go makes it so much easier to get cards done at the last minute.  I used one sheet and cut a bunch of balloons out.  So to use now and some to use later.

Creating this card was super simple.

All I did was die cut the balloons out of the watercolor panel and cut the balloon basket out of black cardstock.

I adhered the pieces the way I wanted with liquid glue and foam adhesive to the card base.

I used Mama Elephant Up and Away Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment under the balloons.

I used We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round the bottom right corner of the card.

So what do you think?  Let me know below!  I’m sending this card over sees to a great friend of mines. I hope she likes it.

There’s No Place Like Home….

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Casology Challenge Week 118: Home!

Week 118 - Home

First let me say Thank you to Judy and the other ladies over at CASology for choosing my candy apple card as an Honorable Mention.  I was so excited to see my card on the list.  Just in case you missed that card you can find it here.

Now on to the card for this week.

When I first saw the cue word, I wasn’t sure what to do because I do not have any home stamps, dies nothing.  I have pattern paper with homes on them but that didn’t appeal to me.

On Wednesday, as I was cleaning up and organizing my dies, I found a Lawn Fawn Die that I didn’t even know I had.

Happy Trails Lawn Cuts

Its the Happy Trails die set. I said to myself, why do I have this and not the stamp set.  That didn’t make sense to me.  I look thought my stamps every day and have never seen a set that matches this.  So, I didn’t give it a second thought.

On Thursday, something told me to check my stamp sets to check if I had the matching stamps that goes with that die.  If I do not have that set, then I would give the die set away.  So, I check and BAM, there was the stamp set.  I laughed so hard because we are all guilty of buying stamps, dies and there tools and forgetting that we even have certain things.

So, I looked at the stamp set and wondered what can I do with this set?  What did I buy it for?  Then it hit me, people live in there RV’s too.  I do have a home stamp.  Now I can enter the challenge!!

Here is my card:

Home

Yeah, I can see a family calling this RV home.  Out in the woods, enjoying nature and not having to worry about anyone bothering them.  Imagine moving your entire home from state to state without having to pack.  I love it!!!

I used these Copic colors to color my RV: YR02, YR04, YR07, R24,N4, N5, BG02, Y15 and Trees: G02, G07

I created a mask to cover the entire card front except the circle.  I used Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Ink for the sky and Ranger Archival Ink Leaf Green Ink for the grass.

So what do you think?  Can this pass as a home?  Let me know what you think.
