C.T.S. 207

I am trying out a couple new card challenge sites, and first up is CAS(E) This Sketch: I am getting my card in just under the wire: I spray painted some plastic stars, and because it is so cold and wet here they didn’t set 100%. This didn’t ruin them though, instead it gave them…

CTD 425 – black, mustard, blue

The colour combination over at Color Throwdown is black, mustard and blue: I agree with Barbara Anders in that this colour combination can work well to create a masculine card. That is the direction I took as well: I don’t have a great amount of embellishments, but I wanted to add something so I went…

ctd 424 – black, green & hot pink

It’s black, green and hot pink for Color Throwdown 424: I admit I kinda dig those oven mitts in the inspiration image 🙂 Here’s my card: I used a Momenta Art-C stamp and die set for the the flags and stamps. The hexagonal and scalloped tags are Sizzix. Lots of the edges are inked in…

CASology 203 – congratulations

The CASology cue card this week is congratulations: It’s that time of year where people are moving ahead in their lives and there are plenty out there who need some congratulations! I decided to go with an engagement themed card: I took about twenty photos of this card and none of them turned out, so I…

S.I.P. 53 – Case the DT!

Stamp Ink Paper‘s challenge this week is to case the design team! Pretty exciting! Each card was gorgeous and tempting, but I ended up choosing Justin’s: I chose this one because I loved the colour scheme and that the elements worked really well together. Full disclosure though, a part of why I chose this one…

C.Y.C.I. 125 – red, grey, white, black

It’s my favourite colour combination for the challenge at Can You Case It this week! I got some new dies and was happy to use a We R Memory Keepers Cut Outs for the chevrons on this card. I like all the sharp angles and the way the colours go so well together. I added…
