Just a Note - Inspired By

Inspired by All the Little Things challenge is up and I created a sweet little card using Papertrey Ink's Make it Market Kit - Don't Forget to Write.  I think it is sold out but the papers are still available ....these kits just fly off the shelves!!

I stamped the frame, flowers and sentiment using Aqua Mist and Enchanted Evening inks, and adhered it all together - love the ease!

I diecut a card panel from Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die Set and added a small piece of Enchanted Evening patterned paper.

The square frame and flowers were popped up onto the panel and the sentiment word was added at a slight angle for LOTS of variety hehe.

Try out this pretty challenge won't you?!!

Merry & Bright CAS

Good Morning! We are still celebrating the long weekend with another holiday - any excuse!

We had our annual Fishing Derby yesterday and although the sun was shining, it was still chilly and cold - I think if I make some Christmas cards Mother Nature might get mixed up again and warm up - here's hoping!

The CAS This Sketch challenge was kind of funky - and since I am not a funky gal, I brought out some trees to showcase the triangles in this sketch.

Using CAS-ual Fridays Snowflake Splendor, I stamped the tree images with Versamark ink and embossed them using gold embossing powder.

I also embossed the sentiment - from Snowflake Splendor - in gold embossing powder and then die cut my panel from Your Next Stamp's Stitched Rectangle Die Set.

Since the trees are such an easy triangle shape, I fussy cut and popped them up onto my card panel with the sentiment. I had already adhered a splingle of gold thread  and it looks so pretty - all that gold!!

I adhered the panel onto my card base without popping it up - trying to keep it CAS and all.....(although I really wanted to add sequins and shimmer mist etc etc etc..... I survived)

Thanks for joining me this morning - hope it warms up just for me!!

Leaping Lions!

Color Throwdown and The Paper Players are in my creative mind today!  Colour Throwdown colours are pink, kraft and grey - with whatever other neutral you want to thrown in there - and The Paper Players are looking for wild animals - yay!

I used Reverse Confetti product today - I mean isn't this just the wildest of all animals from in the animal kingdom? - This sweet little lion, from Leaping Lions,  looks like he is on a holiday from being mean - just a cutie of an image!

Using Kuretake Gambai Tambi paints - I swashed up a background in pink on watercolour cardstock. I die cut it with Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die Set.

I coloured Mr. Lion and his little stool with copic markers and then die cut them with the matching Confetti Cuts.  Using foam tape, I popped the images up onto the watercolour background.

The sentiment, from Leaping Lions, was stamped in VersaFine Smokey Gray and the hearts are from Reverse Confetti's Weather It Together.

I die cut the banner from Kraft and Smokey Shadow cardstock.

The watercolored panel was adhered to a sheet of Avery Elle Everyday Collection patterned paper - it's full of fun little grey triangles and I tied a bit of twine around the top for TONS of interest....

Glad you could come around today to visit - hurry back now!

CASual Fridays Today is Your Day! Smile :)

Good day - I am up on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today showcasing another creation of mine made with these delicious CAS-ual Friday stamps!

I chose to stamp with our newest background, Tin Roof, onto white cardstock with Berry Sorbet ink.  I cut a small panel and combined it with matching patterned papers which I then adhered to my card base.

Using a sponge, I inked up white cardstock scrap with Berry Sorbet ink in an ombre fashion and adhered it to white fun foam.  Using the "Smile" Fri-die, I ran it through my Big Shot creating a pretty ombre word - I. am. so. smart.

I glued that to my card front and stamped the rest of "a" sentiment on MORE scrap paper - keep the scraps baby!!

My sentiment is partly from Sassy Smiles - and I cut it apart eek!!- as my Facebook and sometime stamper Allison Rankin-Fillo says - I will NOT be bound by rubber!!! (or even photopolymer)

I finished by tying a bow with ribbon (I'll go down with ribbon in my fist - always and forever!) and added the cute smiley face from Sunbeams onto a tag. - Love that little touch!

Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop!

Good Day --- it's the 17th of the month and that means that it is time for the Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop....a hop dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.

First a little history of this special hop.....Shortly after CAS-ual Fridays owner Michele Gross was diagnosed with breast cancer,  she created Calling All Sistahs to help create breast cancer awareness beyond just the month of October-- by reminding you to do your self exams on the 17th of each month.

Calling All Sistahs Collection of stamps and dies were designed from the heart to make a difference. 

50% of the profits from this collection will be donated to breast cancer research and awareness programs in honor of all who have been, and will be, affected by breast cancer. 

You probably came here from the awesome Shona Chambers but if you got lost along the way - the whole dang list of people hopping can be found on the CAS-ual Fridays blog....and if you want to be added to next month's hop - information can be found at the end of the hop!

I've created a card using stamps and dies from the Calling All Sistahs Collection.

I stamped the large Hope Ribbon onto watercolor cardstock using Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I then did a bit of watercolouring with pink and cut out the ribbon using the matching Ruffled Ribbon Fri-die.

Using one of the sentiments from the Hope Ribbon stamp set, I stamped across the bottom of white cardstock with two different pink inks.

I adhered the ribbon onto my stamped card stock and then popped the whole dang thing onto my light grey card base.  I die cut the "hope" Fri-die and added it to the ribbon and then I finished it off with grey twine tied around the top.

Now you are on your way to the amazing Lori Kobular - I'm sure she has something fabulous up her sleeve!
