Dreaming of You

Hello ................

Sorry I have not posted for a few days but my internet is very hit and miss at the moment.  I have had this card ready to post for a few days but have struggled to get it to upload.
I want to enter this card into this weeks challenge over at less is more, which is One Layer with the theme Dreams

I have used an image from the Hostess stampin up stamp set Love you lots.
I used a wild wasabi stamp n write marker to colour the frog and added just a little soft sky underneath.. The little thought bubble is from the same set.

For You

Good morning to you all.

I was asked by CAS on Sunday challenge to be their Guest DT for the challenge that starts today.

The theme for this challenge is to create a CAS card using HEAT Embossing.

I started off by creating a base in melon mamba, next I die cut a stitched rectangle in white card stock, and mounted this to the front of my card base with foam pads.
I used a stamp from Uniko Studio, stamping the main image with versa mark ink then adding some white embossing powder and heat embossing. I then used distress ink to watercolour the petals and stem. I then fussy cut my image and mounted onto the white rectangle with some foam pads.
I am not sure what stamp set the for you sentiment is from.

Happy Birthday x 2

The internet on site is very slow and at time non existence, I would like to thank you all for the comments you leave, and I am trying to get around to your blogs.

I have not played along with CAS colours and sketches for some time, so when I saw this weeks challenge I thought I would have a play.

for my first card I used Painter Palette stamp set and added a thin strip of Mint Macaroon card stock.
The sentiment is from Rose Wonder set.

For my second card I created a one layer card.  I used my vintage leaves set again, stampint the leaves in mint macaroon and tangerine tango, the grunge was stamped in Rich Razzleberry, I then added a scored line to highlight the panel.

Christmas stockings

I thought I would make a start on some Christmas cards and play along with this weeks challenge over at Merry Monday

I have use Christmas Stocking Thinlits Dies, and co coordinating stamp set Hang Your Stockings

I have made 2 cards with different colour pinks, as I couldn't make up my mind which colour to use.

I used a mixture of Pink Pirouette, Melon Mamba, Smokey Grey, and Dazzling Diamond glitter card stock.

The sentiment was stamped in Smokey Grey ink.


Good morning..........

Today is the start of a new challenge over at MAWTT  
Carol from Team A as chosen a sketch.

I have to admit that I struggled with this, if you follow my blog you will know that my style is 
normally CAS.

This is the card that I came up with

I used my Seaside Shore stamp set and some of the co coordinating by the shore DSP 
I used a set of die namics blueprint dies and cut a large stitched square for my base,
(I thought the waves on the paper represented the three strips on the sketch).
I cut a 2 inch strip of DSP I used my triple banner punch to create the side panel.  
Using a lighter piece of the same wave DSP I cut a small stitched circle and then stamped in Daper Denim the seaweed and bubbles. 
On very vanilla card stock I stamped my fish in calypso coral, fussy cut and then covered in some wink of stella before adhering to the circle with some foam pads.
My sentiment was stamped in Daper Denim and also fussy cut, and adhered with some foam pads. 
I have also decorated the inside of the card.

Thank You

This card was meant to be one layer, in fact it was the original card for last nights post!
When I removed the masking tape from the front of this one it tore some of the card so I had to cut the panel and then mount onto the front of another card base.
I added some cherry cobbler twine around the card, I used the envelope punch board to create the recess for the twine.

I am entering this card into this weeks Less is More challenge Thread

One layer Thank you

Today I have a One Layer Card to share using Vintage Leaves stamp set from Stampin Up.
I firstly masked off a section of my card base and stamped my leaves in Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and daffodil delight.  Then I used Soft Suede and a stamp from the Awesomely Artistic to create the grunge over the leaves.
Using my score board I scored a line across the top and bottom of the panel.
To finish off I stamped my sentiment in Soft Suede.

I am entering this card into the CAS on Sunday challenge ONE LAYER CARD
