I went crazy last pm and stamped till midnight -- today I am entering my cards into some challenges that inspired me;
Simon Says Wednesday - CAS card
Once again, I followed a Jennifer McGuire's technique; glittered die cut . I used Memory Box Twirled Heart and glitter - the sentiment is from Hero Arts, Holiday Sayings.
I made a second card to finally use my new Hero Arts set; Love Jar. I have had this set for weeks and finally opened it and used it!
A while back I won a package of goodies from Simon Says. I love that I was able to use all these images - definitely inspired by the CASE card!
Time Out Challenge; CASE Virginia Lu
While the Team CASE'd a particular card, I popped over to Flickr and looked at Virgina's amazing gallery. This card really inspired me;
I broke down and purchased [like a lot of stuff] from Papertrey Ink. I love these fun circle flowers from Circle Scribbles along with the die tag. I really like the $5 stamps PTI offers. I feel I am actually getting fun images/sentiments at an awesome price. The Wonderful Words, Birthday and birthday die are a prime example of this.
I water colored the flowers [Virginia is big on water coloring] and I love the glassine bag idea to hold the tag. I tried her tutorial from her card, but I couldn't get it to work - I still used Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks, Alcohol Blending Solution and I pounced on the colors - I am happy with the end result.
This was a super fun challenge - thanks girls, and thanks Virginia for having a fabulous gallery to CASE.
Well, never mind - apparently we were to CASE that particular card. Shoot. Oh well I'm staying with my CASE - I like it.
Fusion Card Challenge; super fun chevrons!
I went with both the sketch and inspiration using MFT Chevron dies, along with STAMPlorations May release, Thank You. I am literal at times, but ya know, sometimes it just works!
Thanks for hanging in there with me today - I know overwhelming, but I do like to share with all of you, [along with playing in the challenges of course] ;)
Thanks for stopping by~
