Baubles & Flowers

Hi there!  Hope you all had a good weekend and your week is off to a good start. Unfortunately I lost most of yesterday to a migraine which really sucked especially as it was the first beautiful day we've had in a while.  :(  However, I got a bit of crafty time in today and have two cards to share.  For this card I used the colours from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge and am also playing along with the Addicted to CAS Ombre challenge.  I'm also going to enter this in the CAS Christmas challenge at The Paper Players.  I paired some Altenew ornaments with a Hero Arts sentiment and added gems for a little bit of bling.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White, Textured White) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Ornaments from Festive Silhouettes) Altenew, (Sentiment from CL621)Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Bashful Blue, Pacific Point, Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Gems:  Recollection

This card uses the current ColourQ colours.  Except for the sentiment these are NBUS stamps from Winnie & Walter.  I had fun putting together the flower elements and I used the reverse side of the vase stamp to "colour" it in.  Everything is popped up on foam tape at different heights for some fun dimension. 

That's it for today.  See you tomorrow for CASology!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Old Olive, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers, leaves & vase from In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet) Winnie & Walter, (Sentiment from Many Thanks) Altenew
Inks:  (Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Glitter:  (Cinnamon Stickles) Ranger
Gems:  Recollection

That may be as bad as the excruciating pain... the utter waste of a day. :( Glad it has subsided.
On to the cards. I can CASE your use of bling on ornaments, right? You won't mind? ;) Beautiful in blue. (Oh, I have the same sentiment, too. I can just make this mine. haha) Second card... such great rich fall colours! Love the reverse stamping of the vase for colour.

You have two nice cards here, but the Christmas one is what brought me to your blog. I like that the ornaments are a traditional seasonal image, yet these particular images give a modern feel. I also like how you've replicated the pattern of the gems on the ornaments with the gems below the sentiment - what a super little detail! :) Thanks so much for sharing your card in our birthday celebration at CC&S. I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge.
