CAS-ual Fridays Sketch Challenge #193

No automatic alt text available.Hello and happy Friday!  We have a fun sketch challenge for you this week over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog.  There's no better way to get the creative juices flowing than a sketch  in my opinion!  I die cut the hearts using the Heart Board Fri-dies from one of my many alcohol ink background pieces and stamped the sentiment from the Peace and Comfort stamp set.  This card is perfect for my beautiful husband and that sentiment says it all!

CAS-ual Fridays Encouragement challenge






Hello, this is my second post in one day!  I will get myself organised one day and post them all at once!  I am playing along with the CAS-ual Fridays Calling all Sistahs Encouragement Challenge and you can check it out here.
I was inspired by the colours and I thought Catherine Pooler inks were perfect for this.  I used Juniper Mist, Something Borrowed and Fiesta Blue and did the ink smooshing technique again.  The cute little ballerina and the sentiment is from the CAS-ual Fridays Tutu stamp set.

Love Notes












Hello, my card today is for the latest challenge over at Less is More where the cue card is Music.  With Valentines day nearby I thought I would use the fun set from Casual Fridays called Love Notes.  It is perfect for this challenge!  I white heat embossed the music notes and smooshed CP Designs ink in Flirty Fuchsia and Something Borrowed over the top.  I white heat embossed the sentiment from the same set onto a strip of black card stock and added some splatters of the Something Borrowed and Heidi Swapp Gold color shine.  Thanks for looking, you can check out the challenge here!

Hearts, hearts, hearts with CAS-ual Fridays

Hello and happy Friday!  Our challenge #192 over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog this week is Hearts, Hearts and more Hearts!!  February is full of love and I have used the "Puffy Heart Love" stamp set on my card for this fun challenge.  I stamped the "Oh be still my heart" sentiment onto a background piece I made using alcohol inks in my favourite colours and  added some gold splatters using a Heidi Swapp Gold color shine spray.  I adhered it onto a piece of white card stock with some foam tape, stamped a few black hearts from the same set and adhered onto a white card base.

Spotlight Stamping with The Flower Challenge

Hello, my card today is for a challenge over at The Flower Challenge.  The theme is "Spotlight Stamping".  This is a fun technique and takes no time at all!  I stamped the Blooming Bouquet from Altenew onto my card base then stamped it again onto a piece of water colour paper.  I coloured a small part of the image with my Zigs and die cut a small circle piece from that.  I matched it up onto the image on my card base and stamped the sentiment from Inspired by Stamping "Summer Bouquet".




Thanks for looking!

Less is More - Seize the Birthday

Hello, my card today is for the latest challenge over at Less is More which is a cute One layer Card.  I am also entering a new to me challenge over at Seize the birthday.  My friend Kristie is guest designing over there and her card inspired me to enter. Kristie makes the most beautiful cards, you can check her blog out here! (Just in case you have been hiding under a rock!)

I stamped the giraffe from Gerda Steiners "Go Wild" stamp set and coloured them in with Prisma pencils and copics.  The sentiment is from the same set.

CAS-ual Fridays More Coffee Please

Hello and happy Friday!  This week over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog we have a fun coffee theme.  CAS-ual Fridays has recently released a line of Coffee themed stamp sets and they are so much fun.  For my card I chose to use the "Coffee Talk" stamp set along with the "Coffee Cup" Fri Dies.  I used alcohol inks in blue and purple on a piece of yupo paper and die cut the coffee cup from that.  The sentiment is from the Coffee talk stamp set.  I have lots of card in mind using this set and I think it would be fun to substitute the "coffee" and replace it with "champagne"! 
I just want to drink champagne and make pretty things!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #190 - All that Glitters

Hello, happy Friday and happy New Year!  Our first CAS-ual Fridays challenge for 2018 is "All that glitters" I find it very hard to catch all the sparkle when taking photos so you will just have to imagine how sparkly my card is!  I used the numbers from the "Flower Case Alphabet" to stamp 2018 with Kaleidacolor "Caribbean Sea" ink.  I used my MISTI so I could stamp over it again with Versamark and heat embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder. The sentiment is from "Shenanigans" stamp set and I used the border stamp from "Modern Petals" underneath.  I love that saying  "let the shenanigans begin"!  I'm a little bit addicted to the silver twine at the moment, it is a pain to tie but I think I have the hang of it now so you will see it more on my cards I'm sure!
