Muse - Hello There

Hello Everyone!

Time to play cards at Muse ... Jenni, the designer this week, provided us a beautiful card in blue and white for our inspirations.  My card includes the blue and white theme and flowers. A couple colors of blue distress inks were used to create a panel using the smooshing method. Then, the flowers were stamped and die cut from the smooshed ink panel.

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your comments.  Hope you're having a pleasant day.

Muse - fabulous

Greetings everyone!

Playing in the Muse Challenge #211Tracey, the muse designer this week, provided a fun card for our inspirations  ... my card includes rainbow-hued circles, black sentiment, sequins.

The first step on the panel was stamping using Versamark ink and the Scattered Dots background stamp then heat embossing with clear EP. Secondly, a "stencil" was created from different sized circle die-cuts. Then, the "stencil" was used to create the colored circles. A die-cut sentiment painted with a coat of clear WOS and a few clear sequins complete the card.

Wish you a wonderful day.  Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.

LIM - CASology -TPP - Send you Strength

Hi Everyone,

Today, playing in three challenges ...
- Less is More #323 - Curve - curves in the cloud and his little tummy. (I stretched the one-layer definition a little by inlaying the die-cut cloud).
- CASology #244 - Strong - very strong to hold up the cloud!!
- The Paper Players - Color Challenge #339 (sand, mint, purple)

My card is a cute little mouse working so hard to hold up a huge cloud!! There are touches of blue sky showing through on the cloud (may be hard to see in the photo). 

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.

TIME OUT - GD - smile


Greetings!

Another card for my GD gig at TIME OUT Challenges ... when it rains, look for rainbows; when it's dark, look for stars.

This card focuses on the colors of the rainbow. I repeatedly stamped the flowers and colored them in rainbow colors using Copic markers. A coordinating custom-colored gem that matches each flower's color provides sparkle. A die-cut/inlaid sentiment completes the card.

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback. Wish you a great day!

Muse - CASology - Hello There - Celebrate

Hello Everyone!

Today, it's two challenges and two cards ... Muse and CASology:

Muse Challenge #209

SonjaK provided a gorgeous card for our inspirations. My rendition for the Muse Challenge includes Kraft, splatter/dot background, blue flower, colors. A painting of clear WOS adds sparkle to the flower. Vellum was adhered behind the Kraft. I liked the way a new stamp made the spots ... although a little too many ... used the panel anyway!!

CASology 242 - Text

The text is a birthday background stamp die-cut as a flower with a 'celebrate' die-cut used as the stem.

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback. Wish you a good day.

TIME OUT - GD - Unwrap a Special Day

Greetings!

So honored to have a GD gig at TIME OUT Challenges. Thank you DT for selecting my card a couple of weeks ago and including me. Our inspiration is the following quote:

'When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark, look for stars.'

My card focuses on rainbow colors and stars. The candles are inked using dye and distress inks and heat embossed. Each candle represents one of the colors in the rainbow. Instead of using flames I chose to use star-shaped sequins. Each sequin has a gem in the middle that matches its respective candle color. The sentiment is inked and heat embossed in white on a strip of black card stock.

Hope you're having a wonderful day. Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.
