CAS card challenges

I love CAS cards; it’s really where I feel comfortable creating; so when I came across these two challenges I just knew I had to combine them and play along.

Addicted to CAS #121 was to use your favourite stamp and AAA Cards #100 was a sketch challenge = perfect combination.

Currently my favourite stamp is a set from MFT called Color Drops and I used the smallest tear drop for my card.

The inks I used are from Catherine Pooler Designs -> Black Jack, Tiara, Tiki Torch, Bellini, Orange Twist and Tutti Frutti.

The sentiment is from PTI called Birthday Bash Sentiments which is a great collection of birthday related sentiments.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Hello

Ok, I know this is my third post for the weekend, but I’ve felt really creative and found a few challenges that I was inspired to play along with.

This time I’m playing with challenges over at Inkspirational Challenges and Just Us Girls.

HelloDieChallenge

Here are my card ingredients:

  • Concord & 9th – Hello Lovely stamp set
  • Stampin Up – Alphabet dies
  • Inks – Catherine Pooler Designs – Tiara, Tiki Torch, Bellini, Garden Party, Lime Rickey & Grass Skirt.

I stamped the main floral image and roughly coloured with CP inks, then I die cut out the word hello and popped them up with dimensionals and layered on cardstock I coloured with the inks to match.

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day.

 

Coffee Cafe Cards

I had some time on Saturday before watching the AFL Grand Final to make a couple of cards using a new to me stamp set from Stampin Up called ‘Coffee Cafe’.

It’s a really cute set with matching dies so I can save on the fussy cutting which is not my forte.

Here’s what I used to make these cards all from Stampin Up:

  • Coffee Cafe stamps
  • Coffee Cafe dies
  • Coffee Break DSP
  • Card stock – Early Espresso & Always Artichoke
  • Inks – Early Espresso, Always Artichoke & Real Red
  • Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder
  • Copper embossing powder
  • Misc twine & ribbon

I think I need to go and make myself a coffee now!

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Two Challenges in One!

Today I’m playing along with two challenges with one card and a new stamp kit.

I used the layered sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #341 TSOT341sketchand was inspired by the colours, patterned layers and childish theme over at The Card Concept Challenge #78.TCC78picture

The papers and sentiment were from the September Simon Says Stamp kit – Best Ever. I stamped the sentiment 7 times using my MISTI to keep everything aligned and added a few shape sprinkles for an extra pop.

September Card Making Class

Each month I hold a card making class for a few of my friends. It’s a good opportunity for us to catch up for a chat with the added bonus of making cards.

This month I was challenged to use 1 main stamp set as my focal image for the 3 cards they’ll make. That was a toughie so I went to Pinterest for inspiration. The main image on all 3 cards is from My Favorite Things called Color Drops and has raindrops in 6 different sizes and circles in 5 different sizes. It’s a fabulous stamp set which I will be using much much more often!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #183

I love the challenges over at CAS-ual Fridays and who can pass up an opportunity to make a shaker card?

My ingredients for this card:

  • CAS-ual Fridays sentiment from the Frankly’isms set
  • Pretty Pink Posh die and sequins
  • Simon Says Stamp pig image from the Birthday Farm Animals set

This card came together really quickly as I have a whole container of already water coloured and fussy cut out critters that when the inspiration hit I’d be ready to roll!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day.

 

Addicted to CAS Challenge #120 Florals

Another day another challenge! Well not quote another day but you get what I mean – LOL

Today I created a card for the Addicted to CAS challenge #120 Florals. I am a CAS girl at heart and love a good floral card so this challenge was perfect for me.

ATCAS - code word florals

I used a stamp set called Mondo Magnolia by Ellen Hutson (borrowed from my friend Michelle) and coloured it with my Chameleon markers (V04 and PR4) which were a birthday gift from said friend. The sentiment is from Altenew called Label Love and my finishing touch is some purple twine from the Twinery.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
