Addicted to CAS Challenge #164

How bizarre is this?  Just the other day I was thinking about a die I purchased like 10 years ago, and how I loved it at the time [with the sample card I saw that some designer had created of course], but I have only used it once. [good grief] -- Anyway, when I saw the code word for this challenge, this die came instantly to my mind!

 I'm sure a lot of you recognize this Sizzix die [from all those years ago].  It was perfect for my card today.  While there is no stamping, I do still like this die cut card.

Alrightly then, your turn.  Come on over to the Addicted to CAS Challenge and play along.  I'm sure we will see beautiful floral cards for this challenge.

CAS-ual Fridays Day

It's CAS-ual Fridays day here on my blog [and over on the CFS Blog too].

For my card today, I started with the Modern Petals Stencil.  I inked up the stencil, spritz with water, and  laid it over a piece of water color paper.

While I did like the end result of the entire water colored panel, I decided to cut it down, and using the Peaceful Garden stamp set, I added on cut leaves, and a sentiment.

I'll be sending this to a friend of mine who has recently lost her 22 year old daughter about a month ago.  My heart is breaking for her and her family.  I can not imagine the pain she is in.....

Seize the Birthday Challenge

This challenge is all about rainbows.

Rainbows are always a trend.  The colors just always work together.

For my card today, I went with a masculine card. Since I always need those, it worked perfect.


I used a couple of die-namics from MFT, and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink, Think Big Favorite #24.

Your turn!  Come on over to Seize the Birthday and play along.  While the rainbow is an option, making a birthday card is not.  See you there.

Welcome to more STAMPlorations Inspiration.

Today I used some [very neglected] washi tape, along with a dual stacked CUTplorations Clustered Heart Die.

I also used the new Good Things Clear Stickers sentiments.  I adore the font of these sentiment stickers.  They help make the card elegant. [These come in packages of 8, a total of 32 stickers - 4 of each sentiment.]

Dare 2B Artzy Day

It's my day for Dare 2B Artzy products. (I'm over on the D2BA Blog too) Today, I started with a water colored background, with some added splatter.  I colored the background die from from Congrats Word Die to match, and used black card stock for the word.

I then stamped the pretty floral image from Blossom using the D2BA Black Ink, and cut it out.  I like the look of the b&w image against the colored background.  (Plus, if you aren't great at coloring [raises hand], this still shows off the gorgeous image.)

This card is going to be perfect for my fellow co-worker!

That's it for today's post.  I will have one more on July 24th,  and that will be the last of my Design work for Dare 2B Artzy.  Since I am retiring in 53 days (!) I am stepping down so DH and I can get to traveling!  Oh yeah!
