CAS on Sunday - Sentiment Only

Such wonderful weather this week that I was able to spend lots of time outdoors enjoying the spring like weather.  Yeah!

We have a new challenge starting over at CAS on Sunday.  Our theme for this week is Sentiment Only!  I had one idea, but it didn't really work out as expected so I scrapped that and came up with this colorful number....looking forward to seeing what you come up with!



For this colorful card, I simply stamped the letters and added a bit of doodling to the letters.

I then used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color the letters and done!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Washi Tape

It's been a beautiful week, and I have been enjoying the nice weather on the tennis courts.  Lots of play this week and it has been super fun!

We have another challenge starting over at Less is More.  This week our theme is Washi Tape.  This is a bit challenging for me!  While I have and love washi tape, I don't use it on my cards, I typically just use it on envelopes!

Here's my take on the challenge...looking forward to seeing the creative ways you use it!

I started by stamping my main images and coloring them with copic markers.  I then added the pearls to each flower.

I used distress ink to ink up some paper in an ombre fashion, then cut the word die from the paper.  I then popped it up on some fun foam.

The washi tape is on the left side---the bright green with white dots!











Here's a close up of the card!

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Seaside



It has been a lovely week weather wise...looking forward to the spring!  But not sure we are quite there yet!  Anyhoo, this week's theme at Addicted to CAS will get you into the spring mood...our theme is Seaside.


I had a bunch of fun ideas for this challenge, and wanted to use my newest dies, so I ended up with this one...



I started by stamping my images and coloring them with copic markers.  I then sponged my background with distressed inks.  I found that sponging works like magic on Bristol paper, so that is my go to paper for all things sponging! I then stamped some seashells on the Kraft stock with distressed ink.  I stamped them with Antique Linen which is a bit light, next time I'd use a darker shade.





Here's a close up of the card.  You can see the sea shells on the Kraft card stock just a bit.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with...remember there is a great prize for the winner!

Less is More - Leaves

What a beautiful day we have here today.  Spring time weather!  Yeah!

We also have another challenge starting over at Less is More!  The theme for this week is Leaves and it is a one-layer challenge.

Here's my take on the theme...



I started by stamping and heat embossing the leaves.  I then used distress inks to watercolor my image.

I added the sentiment at the end and done!  Pretty easy...and quick!


















Here is a close up of the card.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

CAS on Sunday - Umbrella

It's been quite busy on this end...but managed to slip in some tennis.  Today I'll be heading over to the gym to get in a bit of exercise.  But before I go, we do have another challenge starting over at CAS on Sunday.  Our theme for this challenge is Umbrella.  Lucky for me, I just purchased a new stamp set which has a few umbrellas!

Here's my take on the challenge....



I simply stamped the main image and colored this cute little dog with copics.  I then stamped the sentiment.

I wanted to add a bit of color so I decided to use this cloud die and pull the colors I used from the Umbrella.  I used distress ink to color some paper and then die cut the clouds.

All in all, pretty simple!










Here's a close up of the card.  This little guy is so cute!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
