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 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…

Fusion – scrambled letters

I am always excited to participate in the Fusion card challenge. This one is no exception: Here is my card: I used the elements of the letters, the colours and the touch of wood. The horizontal stripes became vertical because that was the only striped embossing folder I had 🙂 I love the way the…

S.I.P. #88 -anything but a card

This week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge is a bit of a shake up: I went with a tag: The background is stenciled in yellow ink. I went with other bright colours (almost keeping them all primary). I dig the HOORAY die cut letters filled in with other colours 🙂 This tag is so cheery! As a…

S.I.P. #87 – kindness

Kindness is the theme for Stamp Ink Paper #87! This is what I rustled up: I embossed the patterned paper to add some texture and to enhance the petals of the flowers. I layered with dark grey, giving the card a more elegant feeling (instead of working off the red or yellow for a brighter…
