The Heart Desires #15 and Where Creativity Meets C9 #12

One card, two challenges.  I love when that happens and it wouldn't have if Where Creativity Meet C9 wasn't having an Anything Goes challenge so I could send them the card I made for The Heart Desires. Their lovely mood board is below. Concord and 9th are celebrating their 2nd birthday so this card sends best wishes to them.
The cake and banner from Concord and 9th are colored with Zigs. The background is a stamp from Hero Arts embossed with WOW pearl embossing powder.  Here's a different angle so you can see the shine.

Thanks for dropping by.

The Flower Challenge #11

All those smaller images we have are great for background stamping.  I used WPlus9's Happy Wishes to make my card for The Flower Challenge.
After stamping the panel with Altenew Inks, I cut it with the Neat and Tangled scallop die and mounted it on Lovely Lady cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped and clear embossed on vellum that was cut around the edges.
Thanks for dropping by.

CAS Mix Up August

I'm back from the lake for a few days so I had a little time to make a card for the CAS Mix Up Challenge.  I only have a few alcohol inks but that's all I needed.
I watched Loll's video and then used some of the Yupo paper she so generously sent me to try.  It works like a dream for alcohol ink smooshing. I placed a piece of my inked panel behind the MFT peekaboo die and added a poppystamps die in purple.  The sentiment is from HA.

Thanks for dropping by.

Addicted to CAS #118

A new code word is up on the Addicted to CAS challenge blog chosen by Susan.  It took me a while to decide what to do but since I wanted to use my NBUS stamps from PTI, I came up with this.
I stamped and die cut the berries, mounting them on a SSS stitched circle that hangs over the top of the card.  The PB sentiment was curved to follow the edge or the circle.

Our sponsor this week is Happy Little Stampers who is awarding a $15 gift certificate to the winner of the challenge.  We'd love to see you make a card - remember to keep it CAS - and enter it in the gallery.

Just Us Girls #407 - Color Week

Our host Sue has chosen the following colors for Color Week at Just Us Girls:
I love primary colors.  They remind me of painting and that influenced my choice of stamps.
A WPlus9 Stamp set colored with Distress Inks make up the background. The sentiment was computer generated.

What do you think of when you think of red, yellow and blue?  Head on over to see what the rest of the Design Team and our guest designer Darnell have made using these colors.  We hope they inspire you to make a card for the gallery.  If you do you may be chosen Chic of the Week and have a chance to be our guest designer in October.
