Less is More - Personalize It

We are bracing ourselves for a hot weekend...but still not too hot to hit some tennis balls with the husband....just a few more breaks in the shade!

We have a new challenge starting over at Less is More.  Our theme for this week is Personalize It. What a great way to recognize someone special.  Here's my take on the theme...




This is a simple card...I started by stamping my image and coloring it with copic markers.  I added my friends name in the sign.  It looked a bit too plain to me, so I cut down the image on a stitched square, then created the tone on tone background paper.  I popped up the image on some foam tape and done!






Here's a close up of the card.  You can see the dimension created by the foam tape.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

CAS on Sunday...now CAS on Friday!

We are making some changes to CAS on Sunday...well actually just one change...we are now CAS on Friday!  Thus, we have a new challenge starting today!  Hope you can join us, the theme for this challenge is Animals.  How fun is that!

Here's my take on the challenge...

This was a fun card to make.  I stamped my cute little images, colored them with Copics.  I then masked them and added the cloudy background.  Stamped the image on the bottom and done!






Here's a close up of the card.  These little guys are so cute!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with...

Addicted to CAS - Cheers



Another fun day on the courts with the husband.  So happy that he is feeling better!  Every day he is getting a bit stronger...though clearly his tennis has not suffered!


We have a new challenge starting over at Addicted to CAS.  Our theme for the week is Cheers!  I though this would be the perfect time to dust of this fun stamp.  Here's my take on the theme...






I colored the image with my Copic markers.  Stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and just put together the card.  Simple and fun!




Here's a close up of the card.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Sweet Things

Another beautiful week with plenty of tennis time.  Today is a little hitting with the husband!  Yeah!

I simply stamped the image and colored it with my copic markers.  Super fun to make this card for my hitting partner who is now in college...

Less is More - Neopolitan Ice Cream Colors

Wow, can't believe it is June already!  It's been a fun week, with lots going on, but always a few minutes to make some cards!

We have another challenge over at Less is More.  The theme is just perfect for summer...Neapolitan Ice Cream Colors.  Doesn't get better than chocolate, strawberry and vanilla!  Here's my take on the challenge...




I simply stamped these cute little coconut drinks and colored them with copics.  I popped up with panel on foam tape and added it to kraft card stock.

I then sponged the sentiment with distress ink and added it via inlaid die to the card.  Was looking for an "Aloha" die but don't have one in my stash.















Here's a close up of the card.  You can see the dimension created by the foam tape.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
