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…

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…

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…

Halloween greeting card – eyeball shaker

Hey there! I am excited to show you this shaker card I made with Jillibean Soup mason jar shaker card pieces. I am a big fan of shaker cards but these are the first ones I have made. On some of them, I coloured the back of the googly eyes with a red permanent marker…

Hello. I am here with a greeting card post! I have many made, which is maybe why I have less time to write blog posts about them? 😉 There is a layer of patterned paper on the card stock (Recollections). The next layer is spray inked and embossed with a gravestones and rats (Heidi Swapp,…

S.I.P. 52 – maker’s choice

It’s cardmaker’s choice at Stamp Ink Paper this week to celebrate their first anniversary! This is of course always a fun one, and here’s what I came up with: I used metal embellishments, including the hot air balloon (all Recollections I believe). I’ve got Heidi Swapp spray ink and a Tim Holtz stamp for the…

SIP 49 – burlap flowers

It’s a floral challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week: In my ongoing effort to go through older supplies, I took out the last of my burlap flower stickers. I used spray ink to colour them. The back panel is dry embossed and had punched corners and inked edges. The sentiment (Art-C) is stamped….

CYCI 121 -purple bird

The Can You Case It challenge this week is a colour challenge: My card for this week did not turn out how I first imagined when I was thinking about it, but I can live with how it turned out 🙂 The “mustard” spray ink turned out a bit darker than I would like but…

It’s time for Can You Case It challenge #107. It’s a colour challenge this week – kraft, purple and white!   I picked up the flower months ago and have been waiting for a chance to use it. It was originally a cream colour, but I used a spray ink on it and the card…
