CASology #249 – warm

CASology #249‘s cue card was particularly inspiring: Here is where I went with it: I used a punch for the circle in the middle (forgetting I had just bought circle dies… :D). Some extra sprays of yellow/orange spray ink made it darker and warmer, but maybe a bit too dark cause the sun stamp needed…

Mother’s Day 2017 card round up

Hello! Long time no see! Now that my “real” job has started to quiet down I am trying to catch up with my crafting related things. Here are most of the Mother’s Day cards I made (that haven’t already been posted for challenges): Here they all are in a slideshow: I upped the embellishments big…

CASology #246 – season

Season is the cue card for CASology #246: Can you guess the season I chose? haha If other Vancouverites saw this card, they would throw it right in the trash, if they could find a bin that hadn’t floated away or been lost to the muddy ground.   I thought some glitter to the cloud…

UPDATE: 01 May 2017 – Design Team Pick (thank you!) It’s clean and simple wedding for Stamp Ink Paper #96: Here is my card: I stenciled some gold dots then added some cute paper butterfly embellishments. I tried to get a fading effect with the dots, but I need some practice 🙂 Thanks for stopping…

CAS(E) This Sketch #218

There is so much potential for CAS(E) This Sketch #218: Here is what I came up with: I stamped a Jillibean Soup sentiment on some ribbon with StazOn and it worked like a charm. I love that ink! I felt like making that middle bar with something other than some paper and thought that the…

Freshly Made Sketches #284

Hello 🙂 I almost went with Karren’s hearts in the layout for Freshly Made Sketches #284: …but I had these burlap flowers and decided to go with them instead. I went with neutral colours. I felt the patterned paper was a great match for the flower embellishments. It could work for a just thank you…

CASology 245 – grow

What a cue card for CASology #245: Timely and full of potential! Here is what I came up with: The idea I had going in to this design was someone grateful to a parent or mentor who has helped along the way and shaped the person they are today. I pepped up the stamping with…

Stamp Ink Paper #95 – sketch

Check out this offset sketch for Stamp Ink Paper #95: Here is my take on the sketch: It’s a pink and feminine Mother’s Day card embellished more than my cards usually are. I am trying to make sure I use what I have (so I can buy some new stuff!). I’ve got two different pink…

CAS(E) This Sketch #217

It’s a springy sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch #217: Here is my card: I liked the idea of grass, but had to improvise. I flipped a bunting stencil upside down and used green inks in increasingly dark shades to kind of imitate small hills in a field. Then I stamped, cut out and coloured the…

penguin family card

I had a request for a card with animals – two parents and two babies. I don’t have a lot of animals in my stash so it was off to a big box craft supply store for me. I stood in the sticker aisle, conflicted. It felt like the most difficult choice I had to…

Freshly Made Sketches #283

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #283: Everyone else seemed to have a die that made that exact wave shape, but I don’t so I had to improvise: I made another Mother’s Day card 😀 Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)
