Baby Boom


Hello there!  

I've got a card today for the Muse challenge and the Paper Players CAS Baby card challenge.  Jenni's sweet little baby card provides plenty of inspiration.  I picked up on the baby clothes on a white panel over gingham.  I inked up these adorable Reverse Confetti onesies, fussy cut them and popped them up on foam tape onto the Lil' Inker pierced squares.  The gingham background is from Market Street Stamps (sadly no longer in existence).  I couldn't just make one pink card so I made three more in other colours using the different onesies.





  












Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  ((Onesies from Cute As A Button) Reverse Confetti, (Gingham) Market Street Stamps
Inks:  (Bubblegum) My Favourite Things, (So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Soft Sky) Stamping' Up
Die:  (Pierced square) Lil' Inker Designs

Weather & Flora


Hello! 
I've got two cards to share today starting with one for CAS(E) This Sketch and the CAS challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.  I thought of this Papertrey Ink stamp as soon as I saw the CTS sketch and inked it up for the first time.  I coloured it with Copics, added some clear Wink of Stella and that was it.  Definitely quick and CAS.






Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (All from Splits: Get Well Soon) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukeniko, (Peach Parfait) Stampin' Up
Markers:  (Y15, Y38, B00, C1, C3, C5) Copic
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig




Next is a card for Anything Goes at the Flower Challenge.  My card was inspired by this one made by the wonderful Michele.  I loved the dotty grey scalloped background and the images tucked onto the top of the sentiment.  I finally got around to playing with these fun Simple Flowers from Altenew.  Aren't they yummy?  So bright and happy.  :)


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Wild Wasabi, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Grey dots) Pebbles

CAS Colours & Sketches Guest Designer Take 3


Hi there!  I'm back for my third week of guest designing for CAS Colours & Sketches.  

This week we have a colour challenge:


These are classic bright Stampin' Up colours this week - some of the first I ever bought.  (You don't have to use SU colours - just match your colours as closely as possible).  The Avery Elle butterfly was stamped, fussy cut and popped up on foam tape over the leaves and stitched arch.  You can't see it but the leaves are covered with clear Wink of Stella and I've scattered some gems around as well.  The sentiment is Altenew and I like the clean lines of the font against the busy layers of die cuts.

Be sure to check out the inspiration from the Design Team and then play along!  You have until 6pm Eastern Time on Monday, 27 March.    


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (Old Olive, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Butterfly from Butterflies) Avery Elle, (Sentiment from Bejeweled) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Leaves) Papertrey Ink, (Stitched Arch) My Favourite Things

Kitty & Flower


Hi there!  I've got a card for two challenges today.  I'm playing along with Newton's Nook's Inky Paws Birthday challenge.  I used Tracey's sweet and colorful card over at Muse for my inspiration.  Newton is coloured with Copics and the gift is paper pieced with Echo Park papers from the same set as the background papers.  Pretty quick and simple to put together and I love the bright and happy stripes!

      












Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper:  (Splash 6x6) Echo Park

I'm also playing along with the Doodle challenge over at Addicted to CAS.  I still have some of the stamped PTI Doodlie-Do images that Anita sent me a while back so I coloured one with bright rainbow colours and popped it up on foam tape.  The sentiment is from Mama Elephant.

CASology #240


Welcome to Week 240 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


We've had some tricky cue words the last couple of weeks but today's is a simple one.  Most stampers have flower images and with flowers come leaves so I'm hoping to see lots of you playing along this week!  I stamped my Paper Smooches leaves with Altenew inks and layered a Lil' Inker Designs sentiment over the top.  A few Nuvo drops scattered around, a black strip to ground the leaves and that was that! 

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!
