Stamp Ink Paper #94 – tic tac toe

It’s my favourite type of challenge for Stamp Ink Paper #94: I chose the bottom row (die cut, light blue and bird):  I stenciled the bird with some light blue ink (insert two birds with one stone joke here) and made some die cuts for the stamped sentiment. I tried to make the leaves a bit…

CAS(E) This Sketch #216

Gotta love the stripes for the CAS(E) This Sketch #216 sketch: I needed another birthday card for a no-frills kinda guy and I thought this sketch worked really well for that. I stenciled the stripes on some green paper with MementoLuxe Nautical Blue ink. I built up the sentiment with a couple of die cuts,…

we will miss you

This card was requested by my mother for a coworker who was moving on to a new place. Not knowing the recipient personally made it a bit of a challenge. Primary colours and black & white felt safe. The recipient was a guy so that also influenced my decisions. I kinda like how it turned…

Fusion – Easter

The Fusion card challenge theme is Easter, but I chose to go with just the sketch… …and I flipped it horizontally: I needed a birthday card, and went for it. I used a We R Memory Keepers journaling card from a big set of 4×6 and 3×4 cards. I love the set and wish I…

Freshly Made Sketches #282

I absolutely love Cecile’s sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #282: How adorable is that!? Once again, I used the opportunity to make a Mother’s Day card: I know it’s a holiday of flowers, but moms are made of all sorts of women and not all women like flowers or pink. Here I went with stars,…

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…

retirement card – GONE FISHING

My grandmother requested a retirement card for a family friend, and she wanted it to have a fishing theme. Just like the dinosaurs in the previous post, I had to go source some supplies. These requests have really highlighted how limited my stash is 😦 Anyway, on to the card… I made the sign with…

dinosaur cards

Here are some dinosaur cards I made recently: My favourite part of this card was how the embossed and inked panel turned out. Kinda like dino skin, huh? Not only was it his birthday recently but the boy also got a new baby brother. I guess cause he’s only 4 maybe a card might make…

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…
