Big Hugs for CTD

Hey guys! The current Color Throwdown challenge is a good one- red, yellow, green and aqua.

Love how these colors work together. I thought it would be a challenge to work all of these colors into a super CAS design, but I did it-

I used Whimsy Alphas from W+9 and some Distress Ink for the colorful background. Then a simple die cut from SSS and some Wink of Stella finished it off.

Love this card and it could really work for many types of cards!

Flutter Flutter

Hi everyone! There’s a really cool sketch at the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge this week and I had to play along.

I just got the Beautiful Butterflies set and couldn’t wait to use them. Here’s what I came up with-

IMG_6411.JPG

I cut some polka dot paper from MFT with a stitching die for the top layer. A heat embossed sentiment made up the bottom rectangle. I used a couple butterflies stamped with Distress Oxide inks for the center portion of the card.

I love these bugs and can’t wait to make more cards with them.

You’re a Gem

Hey everyone! The current cue word over at CASology is DIAMOND.

I recently was gifted the coolest gem set from Ruth #thanksruth and figured this was the perfect time to use it!

I stamped the sentiment and little rays with Versafine and heat embossed with a clear glitter embossing powder to make is sparkle. Then I grabbed the smallest two stones to stamp around the sentiment with Distress Oxides.

I love the clean and simple design of this card. Perfect for birthdays or general cards!

Tweet Birthday

Hey, everyone! MFT has a really cool sketch challenge this week so I decided to play along.

I love the symetry of the sketch, but I don’t have any scalloped edge dies so I made do with a stencil. Check it out-

I used a really fun stencil with some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink for the background. Then a square frame made with a couple Kat scrappiness dies was added to house my bird. He was Copic colored and popped up on the frame along with a matching sentiment.

This card was really fun to create. #ThanksRuth

 

Donuts for (CAS)E This Sketch

Hey, guys! I’ve got a really fun yet simple card to share with you today. I used this sketch from CTS as inspiration.

I loved the gemetric design and thought that I would mimic the shapes’ shading as well. Here’s what I came up with-

IMG_6371.JPG

I used a donut set from MFT as well as a peice of their patterned paper. Some Distress Ink stamping for the donuts and white heat embossing for the sentiment made this card come together rather quickly. Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Watermelon Love

Hi everyone! Color Throwdown has a really fun and summery color challenge this week hosted by the great Amy R. Her photo featured some juicy melons so I just had to make a card with some watermelon elements.

The colors would also work wonderfully for some florals but I decided to go the watermelon route.

I used a couple strips of patterned paper behind my sentiment circle to add some color. The love you circle comes from SSS which I paired with a little mouse from Page Huggers by Mama Elephant. And of course, I made him holding a slice of melon. Finally, a few sequins from CDD finished it off.

I think that this simple design would work well with a lot of the other sentiments from the Circle Sayings set.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
