CAS on Friday - Butterflies

Another week gone by...and we have another challenge starting today at CAS on Friday.  Our theme for this challenge is Butterflies!  This is a bit difficult for me since I only have one butterfly stamp and need to come up with something creative.

Here's my take on the challenge...

I started by die cutting my sentiment as I like to use the inlaid die technique.

I then stamped my butterfly in several colors.  It was a bit empty so I added a few stars and dots.

I then added the "Hello"  above the die cut and done...pretty darn easy!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by!

Addicted to CAS - Masculine




Welcome to August...the year is already half over...wow...gotta start thinking about Christmas cards...but until then, we have another challenge starting today at Addicted to CAS!  Our theme for this week is to create a Masculine card.  A bit tricky for me!  Here's my take on the challenge...





I stamped this fun little guy, then masked him off and added the balloons falling around him.

I wanted to add a little bit of interest to his cloths, so I added some dots to his shirt.  My husband picked the colors and I colored him with Copics.

I added the sentiment in the cloud bubble with white embossing powder.  Lots of fun coloring!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Pets

Another beautiful week gone by...lots of stuff going on, but finding time to play tennis with the husband.  Always a challenge!

Speaking of challenge...we have another one starting today at Less is More.  Our theme for this week is Pets!  What immediately comes to mind is dogs!  My faithful furry four legged friend.  Here's my take on the theme...


I tried a new technique for card.  I stamped my dog on the left then, stamped it again on acetate and stamped that on the card.  This gave me a mirror image.  The quality wasn't good, but I then colored the image in with Copic markers then outlined it black.

Pretty quick and easy card!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addcited to CAS - Summertime




We have another challenge starting today at Addicted to CAS.  Just the perfect theme for this time of year...Summertime.  We were hoping to get to the beach this week, but it has been a bit too hectic.  Maybe next week.  In the meantime...checkout my take on the challenge.

This is a super easy one layer card.  I started by stamping my flip flops.  I then cut a small stencil from masking tape, trying not to be too perfect.  I used distress ink to create a little background for each set of flip flops.  A quick little copic coloring and finished.

I added the little sentiment and done!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Less is More - OLC Stripes

Another beautiful week gone by...a bit more time on the tennis court this week, which is welcomed.  Lots of activities this weekend, so trying to get this post done timely has been a challenge.

Speaking of challenge...we have another challenge starting today at Less is More.  Our theme for this one is Strips.  Here's my take on the challenge...


Here is a quick and simple, one layer card.  I stamped my image and colored him with copic markers.  I then masked him and added a bit of distress ink to the image.

A quick sentiment to match the happy nature of my bunny and done!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

CAS on Friday - Christmas

Looking forward to enjoying a bit of tennis with the husband today.  Always the best tennis opponent ever!

We have another challenge starting today at CAS on Friday.  Our theme today is Christmas in July!  Can't start too early on Christmas cards!  Here's my take on the theme...

This was a quick and easy card.  I started my stamping and die cutting my main images.  I then colored them using Copics.

I then used some distress ink to add a bit of interest to the background.

I added just a touch of dimension by popping up the deer in the front on foam tape.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.  Thanks for stopping by!

Less is More - Tangerine & Olive

Wow, this year is just flying by.  I can't believe it is already July!  Hope all of my American friends enjoyed a nice Independence Day Celebration.

We have another challenge at Less is More.  Our theme for this color challenge is Tangerine and Olive...two colors that I just love to use together.  Here's my take on the challenge...



I added a bit of dimension to this image by popping up my main image on foam tape after coloring her with my copics.


I used my cloud die to cut my green cloud at the top and added my sentiment.

A simple design.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
