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…

penguin family card

I had a request for a card with animals – two parents and two babies. I don’t have a lot of animals in my stash so it was off to a big box craft supply store for me. I stood in the sticker aisle, conflicted. It felt like the most difficult choice I had to…

Freshly Made Sketches #283

Here is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #283: Everyone else seemed to have a die that made that exact wave shape, but I don’t so I had to improvise: I made another Mother’s Day card 😀 Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

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…

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…

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…

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…

Color Throwdown #436

The colours for Color Throwdown #436 are: …light yellow, green and blue! Here is what I made with that combination: Kinda cute and springy 🙂 stamps: Jillibean Soup Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

SIP #92 & FMS #281

I can’t remember the last time I combined challenges, but Stamp Ink Paper #92 and Freshly Made Sketches #281 made a great match!   I loved the colours and really wanted to use them. Here is a close up: The hexagon stamps are Avery Elle (All Squared Up) and the sentiment stamp is Hampton Art…

new baby boy greeting card

Hello 🙂 My neighbours recently had a baby boy and I wanted to make them a card to celebrate their first child: I went with traditional blue and kept the embellishments simple. I could have added something more, but I couldn’t find anything suitable in my stash so I left it as it was. I…
