CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #187




No automatic alt text available.

Hello and happy Friday!  Our challenge this week over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog is Gratitude with attitude.  I have a lot to be grateful for and my wonderful friends are just one of the things!  For my card today, I drew a circle in pencil and stamped one of the flowers from the Mon Ami stamp set around it five times.  I coloured them with Copics and stamped the Thank U from the Bold Wishes stamp set in the middle.

Christmas Mouse

Hello, today I am playing along with the Gerda Steiner challenge for November.  This months free digi is this cute little mouse on a bauble.  I have made two cards and I coloured them both in with a combination of copics and prisma color pencils. I usually print the digi's onto Bristol card stock and colour with my Zig markers but I have run out of Bristol so I had to use normal card stock and my Zigs don't play well with normal card stock!!    I added some diamond glitter with a quickie glue pen to the hat.  The sentiments on both cards are from Festive Sentiments by Uniko. You can click here if you would like to check the challenge out for yourself.





Thanks for looking and have a good week!

CAS-ual Fridays anything but a card


No automatic alt text available.

Hello and happy Friday!  This weeks challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays is "Anything but a card"!
I chose to make some Christmas tags with the Christmas Sparkle stamp set and matching Ornament tag die.
My first tag was very quick and easy, I stamped my images with Versamark ink onto black card stock and gold heat embossed.  For my second tag I decided to make it a shaker tag.  This is also very easy with the matching dies although any circle die could be used.  I gold heat embossed this time on white card stock and filled my shaker with some star confetti I had laying around. These make pretty tags for your Christmas gifts.




If you would like the chance to win a $25 voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make anything but a card and link it up on the challenge blog here.  Michele will double the prize to $50 if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card!

Rosie Posie Sunday

Hello and welcome to my blog this fine sunny Sunday morning!  I finally got a little bit organised and found two challenges that I could enter with one card.  Less is More's challenge is Stamp Layering and CASology's is Cherish.  I chose one of my favourite stamps sets from Papertrey Ink called Rosie Posie.  This is the first layering stamp set I saw years ago and have admired it ever since.  The sentiment is from Summer Bouquet stamp set from Inspired by stamping and I thought it was perfect for someone whom I cherish.  I stamped the flowers with CP Designs Ink in It's a girl and Party Dress and the leaves and sentiment with Mememto London fog.

The Ton Mood Board Challenge

Hello, today I'm playing along with The Ton Challenge.  This month they have a fun coffee mood board.  Since I don't have any coffee themed stamp sets, I took my inspiration from the bottom right tea cup and stamped the flowers from "Sending Peonies".  I silver heat embossed and coloured with my zig markers.  The sentiment is from the "Large Peony 1" stamp set.  I cut around the bottom of the image and adhered my panel to the card base with foam adhesive.

Less is More #350 Stars



Hello, my card today is for the Less is More challenge #350 OLC Stars.  I used an old stamp set from Clearly Besotted called Superstar.  I didn't read the challenge properly to start with and I made a card using the matching die set and popped up my stars with dimensionals. Then I had a closer look and realised it is a OLC (one layer card) challenge so I made another one using the stamps. I stamped the stars with my Kaleidacolor Caribbean Sea ink pad and added some glitter using a Quickie glue pen.


And here is my first card using the die cuts and my yupo alcohol ink piece.

Less is More Hot & Spicy #349

Hello, my card today is for the latest challenge over at Less is More.  It's a colour challenge this week using hot and spicy colours.  I have chosen to use some new to me stamp sets from Uniko.  I stamped the flower from Beautiful Blooms II with some CP Inks (Tiki Torch and Tiara) and did some highlighting with my  prisma color pencils. This set does come with a layering stamp but I find it relaxing to do the shading myself. The leaves are from the Natures Treasures II set and I gold heat embossed them.  The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays WTF set.
The gold splatters are from a gold color shine spray from Heidi Swapp. You can check the challenge out here!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #183







                       No automatic alt text available.




Hello, is it Friday again already!!  That means its time for a new challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog.   It will be Christmas before we know it!

This week we challenge you to make a shaker card.  I've only ever made one other shaker card before but I did enjoy making this one.  I kept it CAS as per usual and die cut the Mon Ami flower from my front panel and added a piece of acetate on the back.  I stamped the flower on my die cut piece and adhered it to a top folding card base. I coloured it in with some alcohol markers, added some clear PPP sequins and adhered my top die cut panel on top with foam tape. I couldn't decide what else to put on the front of the card so I just left it as is.

Happy Friday with Spectrum Noir

Hello and happy Friday!  Today I'm playing with some Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers and stamps.  I have to say I love these markers!  We have a Masterclass coming up on Stamp Nation this month featuring Sprectrum Noir Aqua markers and I'm looking forward to learning some different techniques.   I stamped with black versafine ink onto a piece of Bristol card stock and coloured  the flowers in with the Aqua markers and a water brush. I added some shimmer with the Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.   My sentiment is from the same stamp set called "Best Wishes". There are so many beautiful florals in this set along with some great sentiments.  I am playing along with the Less is More challenge #345 OLC  "colouring in".

CASE stands for Copy and share everything so we challenge you to CASE one of your favourite cards by one of our Girl Fridays.  I decided to CASE the very talented Marcia from Marcia K Designs.  Click here to see Marcia's card.  Instead of using a die, I stamped the border from Bold Wishes stamp set down the left hand side of my card using Kaleidacolor ink pad "Caribbean Sea".  I stamped the sentiment using the same inkpad.  I sponged my background piece with Distress Oxide Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers.
