Addicted to CAS - Plaid

I hope we had the last heat wave of the year!  I'm ready for the fall season!

Anyhoo...we have another challenge at Addicted to CAS today...our theme is Plaid.  This was a bit of a challenge for me, as I was searching for paper and realized I don't have much (actually any plaid)...then I was thinking about it and realized, I'm not a super big fan of plaid.  However, with that being said...I did find the back on one piece of paper that had plaid...it was only a small amount...so time to be creative.  Here's my take on the challenge...





This card uses the inlaid dye technique...which was a bit challenging since it cut the entire card across.  But in the end it all came together.

You can't tell in this picture, but I used some silver glitter paper as well.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Rainbow Color

What a terrific week...fall has finally arrived...okay, not really fall, but slowly getting there!  At least we are not in the middle of a heat wave!

We have another challenge starting over at Less is More.  I'm a bit more organized for this one!  Our challenge is a color challenge....Rainbow colors.  Lots and lots of options for this. 

Here is my take on the challenge...






This is a super simple card using the inlaid die technique...which is my favorite!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Creature



Oh my gosh....it has been a busy week and I'm a bit tardy at getting this blog up...I complete forgot that it is that time of the week!


Anywho...we have a fun challenge at Addicted to CAS.  Our theme for this challenge is Creature.  So fun and just up my alley---if I would have remembered!

Here's my take on the challenge...




This is a old fun stamp.  I added a bit of color and it was quickly done.  Perfect for making a few to be donated!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Style



I'm trying to stay out of the heat...but will be heading to the tennis courts early this morning just before the heat of the day!

We have another challenge starting at Addicted to CAS.  Our theme for this challenge is Style.  So many fun options...wish I had more time this week!

Here's what I came up with...

Less is More - Typography

I'm hoping this will be the last sizzling weekend of the season.  Just when I was getting ready for fall, the heat is back!  

We also have another challenge starting over at Less is More.  Our theme for this week is Typography.  I had a bunch of ideas, but quickly ran out of time...so, I had to settle for this quick card.




Super simple little stamp.  I colored with Copics and quickly done!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Pink & Purple



Another beautiful weekend.  The sun will be shining, the tennis courts are calling and so is my dog!

But hold your horses, we do have another challenge starting over at Addicted to CAS.  Our theme for this challenge is pink and purple.  Lately, I've been loving this color combination. 

Here is my take on the challenge...




Hard to go wrong with a Stamping Bella image.  Here is sweet little Edna...she cleans just like me :)

Anywho...I stamped and colored this little beauty with Copics.  Added my little speech bubble and done!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Stencils

Wow...waiting for the cool breeze to kick in...super hot out today.  But it is supposed to begin cooling soon.  I was able to get some tennis in today, but had a wake up early to do it! 

We have another challenge starting today at Less is More.  Our theme for this week is Stencils.  Haven't used those in some time, so nice to pull them out.  Here's my take on the challenge...




I stamped the image first, then masked it.  Pulled out the circle stencil and some Distress Inks.

Super simple and quick card. 

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
