On Your Birthday Have a Blast

CAS(E) this Sketch:   #62

I scored 3 lines on either side of my panel to fit in with the sketch. Then using my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set stamped and embossed my "Solar System" and sentiment.

My space rocket is from the set Blast Off and has been coloured in with Promarkers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out. The white triangular borders have been raised on 3D pads.

Have a mice day

CAS.ology   Week 80: Purple

A lovely challenge from CAS-ology this week, Purple, one of my favourite colours to craft with! I started with a white card base, then created a frame by scoring several lines at the top and bottom. I then used an edgelit die to make the wavy border.

I stamped and coloured my image with Promarkers, and added some Rhinestones to the flowers.

I used a suitable "cheesy" sentiment to finish off my card!

Happy Anniversary

Less is More Challenge -  SKETCH TIME

I had been wanting to have a play with this spiral flower die, and this weeks sketch challenge at Less is More, gave me the ideal opportunity to try it out. Using an embossing folder I created the silver band across my card.

I used some scraps of vellum and silver paper to make the flowers, and added some rhinestones to their centres. The flowers were layered over my punched out leaves.

I wanted to keep the colour scheme very simple, so added a sentiment stamped in grey to match my flowers.

Happy Anniversary

CAS(E) this Sketch:   #61

This weeks sketch reminded me of one of my favourite stamps, using a daisy instead of the tree.

Keeping closely to the sketch I stamped and coloured my image. The sentiment was stamped on to a banner, which was raised on 3D pads. 

The finished image was also raised on 3D pads for extra definition.

It's a Boy

Less is More Challenge -   Week 155 Theme - New Baby!

Using a matching embossing folder and edgelit die I made a blue border for the edge of my card.  I cut out a circle aperture, and then stamped my pram image to fit into this space.

The sentiment has been stamped in the same colour as the border.

I've used 3D pads to raise the front of my card.

CAS.ology   Week 78: DOT

For this weeks challenge of "Dot" I thought my Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder would be ideal. I used only two colours to try and emphasis the dotty background.

I punched out three butterflies from my contrasting border, and added Rhinestones as another form of dot!
A stamped sentiment in the bottom finishes off my card.

Congratulations - Owls

CAS(E) this Sketch:   #59

For my card, I've flipped the sketch. I punched out two Owls, and these have been mounted on to my die cut branch. For a bit of fun, I added googly eyes to my Owls.

The sentiment has been stamped directly under my branch, to fit in with the sketch.
