Polka Dots for Inky Paws #54

Hello hello hello!!! I’ve FINALLY made a card in time to enter into a challenge. The last 7 or 8 card I’ve made have always missed the deadline. A combo of photo laziness and bad lighting is always the culprit. But I’ve managed to get this one done with 2 hours to spare.

I used the Polka Dot challenge from Newton’s Nook as inspiration.


Brsides the challenge, I also found inspiration from the wonderful Andrea Shell. She created a beautiful polka for and ink blended shaker that I just had to CASE! Go check her out if you haven’t seen it!


I used a circle die to die to repeatedly cut some white card stock and adhered the dots to a panel. Then I used a larger circle to cut a window into the panel so I could create a shaker card. A Distress Ink background and some PPP sparkling clear sequins were the perfect backdrop for the sweet kitten from NN Sweater Weather set. A word die from Mama Elephant in glittery white completed this card!

Thanks for stopping and thanks to Andrea for the inspiration!!

SAFARI for CASology

Hey everyone! Guess who is this week’s guest designer for CASology?! ME!!! Isn’t that awesome?! This week’s cue card was SAFARI.


I love the giaffe image from Maple & Ink’s Spotted You First set. It was perfect to use with this week’s cue word.


I did did a little background stamping with Distress Ink and then added my image and a die cut sentiment over some vellum.

Thanks for stopping by and a HUGE thank you to the CASolofy team for having me this week!

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-


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!
