Kylie's Birthday and CAS(E) 83

Another birthday on the horizon.  Today is fellow Teammate, Kylie's birthday!

Can you tell I am really enjoying playing with water and ink?  Any excuse ;).  I used STAMPlorations newest release, Celebrate Artzy.  The images just scream water coloring.

Meanwhile, I am late with this post [I got distracted stamping - really? ;)] so I want to wish Kylie the best birthday!  Enjoy your day to the fullest!

I also made a card for the CAS(E) this Sketch #83.  I'll say I flipped it - I might be pushing it, but it does resemble the sketch so I am going with it.

Once again, I used STAMPlorations images, this time from, Eclectic Florals and Retro Mod Shapes. Nice and cheerful card - now Kylie can choose her own card! [even though I already mailed the first one to her]

And lastly, I wanted to play in the Less is More Challenge 179.  It's been awhile and I really do enjoy this challenge.  This week is earth tones.

And again, I used STAMPlorations images from [my new favorite] Celebrate.  I love that I was able to make a template from my Silhouette and use it to "die cut" out my word for this end result.  I love this card! These colors make it totally doable for a male or female, which is an added benefit! I am entering this into the Moxie Word Die challenge too.

Unexpectedly, it turned out to be a STAMPlorations kind of day.  Good thing I adore these stamps! :)  I hope you enjoyed this day too.

Thanks for stopping by~

Fab colours and love your cards !!

These cards are just stunning, Vicki!!! You are inspiring me to experiment with watercolour paints!!!
What I like about the first card is the stitched frame you've doodled around the your watercoloured panel and I also like the punched border and the rhinestones to round it off nicely. The sentiment looks great!!
The second card is soooo beautiful - I love the sweet little flowers you've stamped with such cheerful colours and the rhinestones look so pretty. I really like this one a lot and it's perfect for the CTS challenge!!
The third card is just brilliant!! I absolutely love the stamp you have used and the colours are so striking!!! Love that you have added the black behind your 'celebrate' - adds such a lot of dimension to the card!! Love it!!
