wedding cards summer 2017

Marriage! People do it, and they often appreciate cards to acknowledge the occasion. Here are some such cards: I love those vellum hearts. I would probably put it on everything I make. (The above card is available here). This one was made to match the colours of the invitation, light yellow and a wine colour….

bunch o cards

A family member requested ten general-purpose greeting cards. I was a bit pressed for time so they are on the simple side of things, but sometimes basic is alright. My favourite I think is this cactus one. Sure they are probably soon on their way out trend-wise but they are still cute. I took out…

graduation cards

Here are the graduation cards I made for the fair I was at this past weekend: They are all simple, but kinda cute. The gold stripes are just stenciled with gold ink, and check out that adorable grad cap on the zero! Jillibean Soup makes shaker cards pretty easy! I went with a silver theme….

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…

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…

Stamp Ink Paper #96 – CAS wedding

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…

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…

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…

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…

CASology #244 – strong

NOTE: A big thanks to Rachel for the honourable mention last week for CASology #243 – icing! ❤ The cue card for  CASology #244 is strong: I am on a Mother’s Day card kick right now, and this cue card is a great prompt for one of those! Just one spritz of spray ink, one…

CASology #243 – icing

Note: A big thanks to Jacquie for the honourable mention for CASology #242 – text! What a sweet cue card for CASology #243: Here is my card: My first version had yellow icing and a gold wrapper but the Copic marker kinda leaked and things got a bit messy. So purple it is. Then I…

CAS(E) This Sketch #215

Here is the super cute sketch for CAS(E) This Sketch #215: Here is what I came up with: I flipped the main image upside down because I was inspired by the idea of falling leaves. I had some fabric leaves and the natural colour plays off the kraft card stock. The stamp is from a…
