Butterflies, Flower & Pig


Hello!

I've got three more cards to share today.  First up uses the colours from the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge.  I pulled out some oldie but goodie Papertrey Ink butterfly stamps and dies and paired them with an Altenew sentiment.  The butterflies are popped up on foam adhesive for some dimension.



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Paoertrey Ink, (Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Beautiful Butterfly Layers) Papertrey Ink, (Sentiment from Heartfelt Sentiments) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Butterflies) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  Recollections




Next up is a card for two challenges - The Colour Throwdown and the AAA Cards Chilled challenge.  I used "chilly colours" and a sentiment to wish away the chill.  The dies are from Neat & Tangled - they've been on my wish list for ages and I finally got ahold of them at a great sale price from Ellen Hutson.  The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter.



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Sketchy Thoughts) Winnie & Walter
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Flower Medallions) Neat & Tangled, (Scalloped rectangle) Winnie & Walter
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig, (Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss) Tonic



Finally I have a card for the Simon Says Wednesday challenge to add a sentiment, the Just Add Ink challenge to use something new and the Paper Players CAS love notes challenge.  The Simon Says Stacked Hearts die just arrived on my doorstep this week so is very new!  The MFT Hog Heaven stamp set is one I've had for a while but still love it.

Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Strawberry Slush, Basic Black) Stampin' Up

CASology #283

CASology #283



Welcome to Week 283 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I immediately thought of "a glimmer of hope" when I saw this week's cue word and found this sentiment in an old The Craft's Meow stamp set.  For some reason I always put butterflies and hope together in my mind so I went with it here.  I used an NBUS MFT butterfly stamp and embossed it with silver.  This Nuvo silver embossing powder was recommended at my local art supply store and I LOVE it!  The other brand I have at home has never worked well but this is gorgeous.  They were out of the Nuvo gold but I will definitely be getting some at some point.       

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!

'Bots and Birthdays


Look at that!  Back for two days in a row!  Yaaaasss!  I've got two more cards today starting with this one for the My Favourite Things sketch challenge.  I finally broke down and got the dies to go along with the Bionic Bots stamps.  I'd avoided buying matching dies as much as possible telling myself that I was saving money because I was perfectly capable of fussy cutting images.  Well, it does save money and I am capable but boy does it take forever sometimes!  So now I scoop some up when I can and it's definitely making my crafting life easier.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Grey, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Lucky Prints 6x6) My Favourite Things
Stamps:  (All from Bionic Bots) My Favourite Things

Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frame) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (RV10, C1, C3, C5) Copic
Other:  (Glossy Accents) Ranger



Next up is a card for the CAS-ual Fridays All That Glitters challenge and the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes challenge.  I used coloured glitter papers from DCWV with some fun Papertrey Ink dies and added a CAS-ual Fridays sentiment.  I also added a few Nuvo Crystal Drops but they're pretty hard to see. 

That's all for today.  See you tomorrow for CASology!

Smooches & Possums


Hello there!

I have been suffering with severe lack of mojo for ages now so have just been focusing on keeping up with CASology cards.  Today I finally managed to get some challenge cards made so the mojo misery may finally be lifting!

First up is card using the sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches and the theme of Love from CAS on Friday.   I was after this Lil' Inker Smooches stamp set for ages and finally got my paws on it.  It kept going out of stock and I was never quick enough to order it before it ran out again.  I stamped it with Altenew ink and then stamped over it with VersaMark and applied clear embossing powder so it's got some gloss to it.  I love it!  It was well worth the wait.



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Lips & Muah from Smooches) Lil' Inker Designs, (I love you from Hug Me) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Coral Berry) Altenew
Embossing Powder:  (Clear( Hero Arts
Other:  (Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops) Tonic



This card uses the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and I'm also playing along with the Addicted to Stamps and More CAS challenge.  I've used more Lil' Inker NBUS here with the adorable Hey, Awesome stamps and Seriously Awesome die.  Super cute and simple and I scattered some Nuvo drops around it all.




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Smokey Slate, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Possum & sentiment from Hello, Awesome) Lil' Inker Deisgns
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Industrial Diamond) Altenew
Dies:  (Awesome) Lil' Inker Designs
Other:  (Nuvo Oyster Grey Crystal Drops) Tonic

CASology #282


Welcome to Week 282 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


These little cuddling Neat & Tangled kitties are so adorable!  I Copic coloured them, fussy cut them and gave them a little turquoise mat to snuggle on.  It's not often that a card comes together so quickly so it makes me love this even more.  :)     

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!

CASology #281


Welcome to Week 281 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


This Neat & Tangled Awesome die is one I turn to often for encouragement cards.  You can have fun with lots of color combos and you don't need much else to embellish it.  Here I layered it on some Simon Says stars.  The background is grey on grey to kept things CAS.
