CASology #238 – crunch

First off, thanks to Hazel for the honourable mention for CASology #237. I am very grateful! “CRUNCH” is the on the cue card for CASology #238: Here is the card I was inspired to make: I was thinking along the lines of a time crunch, perhaps a graduation or completion of a big project at…

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…

Freshly Made Sketches #276

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #276: Nice and balanced! Here is what I came up with: I embossed the back panel to add a bit more to the card cause it seemed a bit boring without it. The anchor die had been sitting at the bottom of my container and so I’m…

belated Valentine’s Day 2017

Hello! I just wanted to do a post about the Valentine’s Day cards I made this year. I forgot earlier in the month I had a lot of stuff left over from last year so I tried to use more embellishments than I usually do. These are my favourites:

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…

Color Throwdown #430

Hello again! It’s a lovely combination for Color Throwdown #430: Turquoise, sage green, gold/kraft and dark brown. I can dig it! Here is the card I made using those colours: This seemingly simple card took me a few tries because I kept getting ink everywhere it shouldn’t be. I guess that teaches me to use…

CASology 236 – romance

CASology 236 is keeping the love vibes of February going with this week’s cue card: I took things a bit literally because I had a wooden embellishment that fit the bill:I inked the wooden embellishment with some gold. I die cut some hearts around the heart and arrow stamp and placed some gold vellum behind…

VENTURE greeting cards

Hello! I have some cards to share that aren’t for a challenge for once 🙂 I had these on the back burner for a while and recently sat down to make them: Some airplane and globe die cuts and metal travel-themed embellishments enhance the map background panels. The sentiment panels were spray inked and stamped…

SIP 84 – a Tic Tac Toe challenge

It was my favourite type of challenge for Stamp Ink Paper 84! I chose blue, circular element and ribbon: Clever, huh!? 😉 I coloured the ribbon with spray ink as I noticed I need to get some proper blue paper 🙂 Then I used a HOORAY die cut to strengthen the celebratory theme of the…

CYCI 145 -blue, purple, silver & white

Can You Case It #145 is a colour challenge: I was inspired by some feather patterned paper I had: I used spray ink to get some silver in there, which comes through a bit better here: I have to say I really like how this card turned out. I would be proud to give it…

CTD 426 – grey, red & kraft

The colour combination for Color Throwdown 426 is grey, red and kraft: It’s a versatile and exciting combination. I considered a Valentine’s Day card, but went for something different instead: I hadn’t had a chance to use the bow dies yet, and I wanted to take them for a spin. Pretty cute I think! I…

CYCI 144 – watermelon, aqua, grey & white

It’s colour challenges for a bit over at Can You Case It. This time ’round the colours are: Here is what I made with the combination: I used a light grey journaling card with a neat white plus sign pattern on it for my middle panel. For the watermelon, I made some diamond die cuts…
