Color & SCS

Today I noticed that SCS Featured Stamper is Bridget.  This girl's work amazes me - she does all those fabulous bright colors -- be still my heart!  I had to join in!

I used the same techniques as Bridget did on her card - water coloring with some stenciling, and I used the perfect CASE image from STAMPlorations, Boxed Blooms.  Here is Bridget's card I CASED:



I also got a notice, last chance for Color Throwdown #310 - the colors totally appealed to me today.  Not usually as bright as I go, maybe that is what drew me in. Whatever the reason, I went on to make this card;

I have had these Avery Elle Chevron Bits dies for a while now and never have used them!  How crazy is this hobby -- buy, buy, buy,........ store. :)  Rather then stamp on my panels, which I did think about doing, I decided to leave my card clean and graphic.  I ended up really liking this card!
 

Another fun Sunday morning!  All this, along with photo and posting, took me 45 minutes.  Speed stamper today, plus my dogs are IN MY FACE ready to walk. :)  Gotta run~

Have a great Sunday everyone~

AAA Card Challenge #21 - Fussy Cut


The challenge this week is fussy cutting.  This has many definitions, and I took the CAS way of fussy cutting.

Yep, I fussy cut my ghosts! :) -- I needed a Halloween card for my friend to give to her grandson.  I instantly thought of my little ghost guys.  I consider them being fussy cut, since I had to cut them out! :)

Now, you can go elaborate, or you can go CAS with your cutting.  Either way you chose, we hope you pop on over to AAA Card Challenges and play along!

Avery Elle Challenge #16

I got an idea for a card last night, and when I saw the sketch over at Avery Elle Challenge #16, it all came together!

I used a die from Memory Box, Lovely Peony Outline [I left the pieces in],  and a sentiment from Avery Elle, Simply Said Hello.

While looking at my Silhouette library, I came across some leaves I had purchased [and never used naturally :)]  I can't believe I forgot about this file.  I LOVE this fern!!

Since this is a never been used stuff, I am entering this into Darnell's September NBUS Challenge #2;
Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Quite the fabulous day!

A bear is what came to my mind when I thought cuddly.   I also associate a bear helping you to feel better when you are sick.  Probably from my bear, Pinky, I had as a child.  He went through a lot with me, and was always a comfort. :)  I used an older stamp from Darcie, with a sentiment from Lawn Fawn Get Well Soon.

What comes to your mind when you think cuddly?  Make a card and come on over to Addicted to CAS and play along!  We can't wait to see what you create~

Pet Sympathy

I got an order in today from Simon Says and unfortunately, I needed it right away.

Our friends had to put down their dog - She was 10 years old, and a great 4 legged kid.  It is so hard when you have to let a "kid" go.  I know this card is a small thing, but I think they will appreciate the gesture.


This Simon Says set was perfect.

It's i{heart}papers day here on my blog today.  Perusing blogland, I came across Lesley's The Challenge #14.  The sketch absolutely sang to me!

I am also entering this into CAS on Sunday #42; sequins.
