CAS-ual Fridays Snowflake Card

It's my day for CAS-ual Fridays.  Today, I was asked to use snowflakes.  That is an easy request :).

I used one of my most favorite backgrounds - bokeh.  I just adore the blurred effect that is accomplished by this technique.  I used the Flurry Fri-Dies for my snowflakes, and a sentiment from Sleighride.


Don't forget, you can save 15% off any CFS purchase by using my code!

Another Fun Challenge - The Flower Challenge

Today I am playing in The Flower Challenge challenge #14;  CAS.

I'm not sure if this qualifies since I didn't "color" the Spellbinder's Layered Poinsettia, but the card is CAS, and it does have a flower, so I am going with it. Plus, I like it.


Thanks challenge - I had a good time creating.

Joining in a Couple of Challenges

Since I am no longer designing for Inspired By Stamping -- Joanna let go the entire team to "focus" on her Facebook page, and classes she is now offering.  I'll miss receiving her images, [I always did like them], however, I do enjoy joining in more challenges.

Today, I am entering my card into Happy Little Stampers; November Christmas.  There is a twist of a tag, [but I didn't use that.]

I did some crafter playing with alcohol inks last week, and used one of the panels to cut out this mc from Ali Express.  The side stamp was in my Christmas box [fun to find sets I forgot I have!] and is Inkadinkado; Snowflakes A Plenty

I love the inked panel cut out.
-------------------------------

So much so, I went on to join in the Love To Craft #16; anything goes.

Again, I used one of my panels, and cut out the trees from Hero Arts Holiday Time [retired], along with using a sentiment from this same set.

Once again challenges - I had fun.   Thank you.

Happy Little Stampers & Fusion

When I saw the inspiration photo from the Fusion Challenge,  I thought of a set of dies I bought like 2 years ago, and have used once.  Once!  What is that!  Anyway, here is the photo;

 
And here is my card;

 I picked up on the wreath, and the words.  My Thankful is from STAMPlorations Thankful Word Die.  The rest of the dies are from the Little B; Holiday-Navidad-Noel die set.  I am also entering this into the Happy Little Stampers; anything goes; die cuts.

Thanks challenges - I had fun!

Just Us Girls #419 - Trend Week


For my card today, I made a tag.  I am also entering this into the Happy Little Stampers November Watercolor; anything goes, and for the twist, a tag.

I used CUTplorations Tag #1 Nesting Tags for my base, and recently, I purchased the Cottage Cuts Nested Stitched Eyelet Oval dies, and used those to cut out my water colored panel. I used MFT Die- namics Stitched Ovals to make a glittered background panel.

Then, using Inkadinkado Evergreen Holiday set, I stamped the image in black - for the silhouette stamping, and Hero Arts Holiday Sayings [discontinued] for the sentiment.

Because I also want to enter this into the November, CAS Mix Up; stamping, glitter, + 1 [I used the water colored panel, along with some water spritzing], I adhered my tag onto a card.  Lots of white space now.  The plus?  I get a card gift to give! Win-win.


Well, that was fun!  How do you see silhouette stamping?  Come on over to Just Us Girls #419, and show us your stuff!  Meanwhile, thanks challenges - I had fun!

Again, I love the off-set of these layers.  [Yes, they are purposely made that way].  For this card, I used Memento inks for the ombre leaf effect, and some Ranger dye ink for the berries.  Once again, I also used the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Die.

CAS-ual Fridays Special Release

Today, CAS-ual Fridays is having a special release.  Michele has received [after many requests] the matching dies to her [very popular] Ballerina stamp sets!  I do have to say, having matching dies to images is so awesome! And, she has a new Ballerina stamp set too!

For my first card today, I used the new stamp set, Sugar Plum Fairies, Tutu, and the new matching die.

How fun are these images!  Here is the complete set;

The plus to the dies, is they match the other sets too!


For my 2nd card, I used the ballerina from Sugar Plum Fairies, along with the Full on Floral background stamp, for the inside of the "tree".   She's cute in green, huh? :).


I hope you enjoyed my cards today. [Be sure and leave a comment for the potential prize].  To see more fun cards using the new release, go to the CAS-ual Fridays Blog.
