CASology Guest Designer!

Hi y'all! 
Happy Tuesday, hope all is well! :)


Today, I'm guest designing at CASology! I won the last challenge and was asked if I'd like to be a guest designer for this challenge and of course, I said yes! Woohoo! :) Thank you to everyone at CASology for having me! :) 


For this challenge it's all about 'luck'. Here's what I came up with...


Yes, things are very simple. ;) I mixed and matched a couple different brands/sets. For my lotus, I stamped the image on vellum and then colored it using colored pencils. I have actually never done that before, but I must say I do love the result. ;) Then I used the matching die with it and a few little foam squares on the back to make it 'pop'. (I had to strategically place the little foam squares so it couldn't be seen through the vellum.) And to top my card off, a bold yet simple sentiment stamped in black ink. Simple, right?!...

Hope to see you at the CASology challenge! :) 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great week and see you soon!

You are awesome

Hi y'all! 
Happy Friday, hope all is well! :) 

I'm swinging in today to share a card I made for the current Altenew Inspiration Challenge


Such a pretty photo and colors, right?!...


Now normally I go for simple, but this card I went a little bit different. I was inspired by the 'bird of paradise' and colors. So I pulled out some 'new to me' Altenew goodies and just had fun with things. I used a stencil for my background and then added some splatters of green using a watercolor brush marker. For the blooms and leaves, I used one of their layering stamp and matching die sets. Which I actually left out one layer because I liked the look of it. ;) Once done, I just added things to my card base and topped things off with a sentiment and enamel dots. Fun, yeah?!...



Well, that's all for my today.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great Friday and weekend! :)
See you soon!

Congrats...

Hi y'all! 

Happy Saturday, hope all is well?! :) It's been nothing but thunderstorms on and off today here, so it's perfect for staying cozy inside. Along with some baking and crafting. ;) 

I'm sharing a card I made for the current Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge. (#SYSChallenge) I have never played in any of these challenges before. *gasp* When I saw the challenge come up in my social media feed, I thought I should join in! :) 

Well, this card gave me such a hard time when editing it! (never ending, right?! lol) So hopefully you can see the settle stenciled background?...I used the Cross Tiles Cover Panel to make a stencil and then used a light blue ink with it. I did some simple coloring with colored pencils for the bunny image using the Party Pals set and used the matching die to go with. Lastly, I stamped on the sentiment using the Best Sentiments set with black ink. Simple, yeah?!...

Well, that's all for today. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! :)

See you soon!

hello there

Hi y'all! 
Happy Wednesday, hope all is well?! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a card I made for the current CASology challenge. It has been sooo long since I've played along with Casology and I needed to change that. ;) 



Just nice and sweet. And quite a bit of mixing and matching of brands. ;) I stenciled on a partial rainbow and then stamped on another part of the rainbow using a blue ink. I then did some coloring with colored pencils for the little snail and envelope. Once done, I used the matching dies with the snail and envelope and then added a little 'hello there' sentiment. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great rest of the week and see you soon! :)

Thanks

Hi y'all! 
Happy Wednesday, hope all is well?! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a card I made for the February Taylored Expressions Challenge. (#TEMakerChallenge) This is only my second time playing along with their challenges, but I sure am loving them. And it's been making use things I've had for way too long. lol ;) 


Fun, yeah?!...I kept things simple and made a shaker card. I haven't made a shaker card in quite some time and honestly wasn't even planning to. But after drawing a blank on what kind of background I wanted, an idea popped into my head and yep, a shaker card it was. ;) I used TE's rainbow die and then filled it with different shades of pink sequins. After, I used TE's cow stamp and matching die to make my cow. I colored him (or her) with colored pencils. Then used TE's 'thanks' die with white cardstock and layered it three times before adding it to my card. Simple, right?!...

Well, that's all for me today.
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day! :)
See you soon!

with deepest sympathy

Hi y'all! 
Happy Saturday, hope all is well?! :) 


I'm swinging in today to share a card I made for the current Altenew Inspiration Challenge


I was inspired by the muted background of the photo, as well as how the 'berries' (are they berries?...) stood out against everything. So for my card, I went with a muted background and a 'pop' of color. ;) 


Don't let my card fool you, this was super simple to make! :) Thanks to the goodies that Altenew has to offer, all I did was stamp on the stamp using a light grey ink and then added a little splatter of black watercolor. And for the flower...that's washi tape from Altenew! Can you believe it?!...And the dies match the tape, which made things sooo easy! ;) To finish things off, I stamped on a sentiment and then added a touch of enamel dots. Simple, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great weekend and see y'all soon! :)

I will NARWHAL-WAYS love you

Hi y'all! 
Happy Thursday, almost Friday! Hope all is well?! :)

I'm swinging in to day to share a 'just for fun' card. (I'm still working on using up 'new to me' goodies.) I don't always make much cards for Valentines/Love, not sure why?...but seeing all the love projects  everywhere, they inspired me. So, here's what I came up with. 


I finally put to use the Technique Tuesday set I had for a little while now! :) And yes, again, I went with using colored pencils. Just something about them, I tell ya. ;) I did keep things simple, but added a little bit of elements in the background. An embossed heart and water splashes. Other than that, I wanted the narwhals to shine. Sweet, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day and see you soon! :)
