CASology #279

Gray is a popular color in home decorating and is also the cue word for this week's CASology.

I thought the color would be appropriate for a sympathy card and used all three SSS gray cardstocks and the ferns from PTI's Meadow Greens.

Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.

Time Out #98

I love the photo inspiration at Time Out this challenge.
Rustic is my thing so I started with that.
I ordered the stag stencil from Sarah Gray who just happens to be the guest designer for this challenge.  First I stamped some Desert Storm paper with Altenew's wood pallet, cut it with a die from CPD and inked the stencil with HA Unicorn White.  I had to add in some of the bright color with my sentiment. I have another card for Time Out that I'll post later.

Thanks for dropping by.

Less Is More #358

The sun is shining.  Oh happy day!  Even though there is quite a bit of snow on the ground and the temperature is hovering in the teens, it seems much better when the sun shines. 

Speaking of shining,  the one layer challenge at Less Is More this week is candles or something depicting light.
I used an MFT stencil with Squeezed Lemonade DI behind my PB lamp post that I colored with Distress Markers directly onto the stamp.  The platinum embossed sentiment is from Neat and Tangled.

Thanks for dropping by today.  You also added a little sunshine to my life.

CAS(E) This Sketch #250

I had some NBUS stamps just waiting for a challenge and CAS(E) This Sketch was it.
These are the WPlus9 petunias.  Don't ask what I stamped them in because I was smart enough to write the colors on the back of the paper, and dumb enough to die cut the paper into the flowers.  Ack!!  I've tried to recreate it and came close but no cigar.

It's snowing up a storm here so I have a feeling we'll be hibernating for a few days.  That will give me a chance to get some of January's DT cards ready.

Thanks for dropping by.  Keep warm if you are in the cold zone and stay safe wherever you are.
