Just Us Girls #432

Nancy is our host for the color challenge at Just Us Girls.
I was inspired by a shower curtain I saw online and switched it up a little to make my card.
I originally thought about placing the wildflowers in all three colors on a white card base but it just didn't do anything for me.  I put it aside and as often happens I had an epiphany in the wee hours of the morning.  I turned the two turquoise die cuts over and colored them with Walnut Stain DOX to go with the one I had already done and the two I did in Frayed Burlap.  Then I used some Peacock Feathers with a Clarity Brush on that white panel.  I love that you can stamp with DOX and used the walnut for my MCS sentiment.  It looks crooked to me but it's all one piece, so if it's crooked it's not me. ;)

I hope you  head off to see what the rest of the Design Team and our guest designer Stef Perry have made using these colors.  If you make a card you may be chosen Chic of the Week and be eligible to be our guest in May.

AAA Cards #110

I need to make quite a few Easter cards and the design I came up with works well for the ombre' challenge at AAA Cards.
Using an MFT stencil I inked with three colors of yellow Distress Inks.  The sentiment from Jillian Vance was stamped and die cut with a SSS stitched circle.  I placed it flat on the card for easy mailing. 

It's March Madness time and I'm not a big basketball fan but I will check in now and then between crafting to see how the teams are doing.  Michigan State is playing in Detroit so my three sons and son-in-law will be going to the games played at Little Caesars arena.  Go Spartans!

Thanks for dropping by.

The Paper Players #384

I finally found a good combination of pinks for my layered flowers and I used them to make a card for The Paper Players.

The flowers are from Altenew, the frame die from AliExpress and the sentiment from PB.

Thanks for taking a little time to check out my blog.  I appreciate it.

CAS(E) This Sketch #262

This week's CAS(E) This Sketch was so easy it was hard.
It wasn't until I had a reason to make a card that it all came together.  My granddaughter is the driver for her robotics team and they won their competition last weekend.  Here's Kjerstin taking a bite out of her gold medal.
I made this card to congratulate her.

The background is a TH stencil and the sentiment is from  HA, selectively inked in the Stryke Force colors.

I'm so glad you dropped by.  Do come again.
