Some Bunny Loves You


Today's card is for the Time Out Affectionate challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday With Love challenge.  I'm not sure I've ever used these Mama Elephant stamps before but they really are perfect fo this time of year.  Also I know I'm way behind the times but I finally got these Spellbinders dies that create the cutest little cut out frames.  I love them and can see them getting a whole lot of use in the future!

CASology #361


Welcome to Week 361 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:



This Lovie Friend stamp set from Lil Inker is definitely the first one I pick up when Valentine's Day comes around.  The images are adorable and there are some great puns in there too.  I went with a super simple, classic layout today - centre, upper third.  You can't go wrong with that on a CAS design!  

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!

I've had these Neat & Tangled stamps forever and while they've had a few outings they could certainly always use more love.  They came to mind immediately when I saw this cue word and in no time I had this little number.  I love it when that happens!  

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!

You're Brrr-fect


Today I'm playing along with two challenges - Paper Smooches Anything Cold and Time Out's Photo Challenge.  I'm pretty sure I've never inked up these adorable PS Chilly Chums which really is a crime so I tried to make up for it by creating 3 cards.  The hearts on the tree branches in the photo are what made me think to use the PS linked hearts to create a background and I filled in one heart to create a visual triangle.  






Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Primrose Petal, Raspberry Ripple, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Chilly Chums) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaMark, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Markers:  (R59, R85, C1, C3, C5, W1, W3, W5, 100) Copic
Die:  (Linked hearts) Paper Smooches
Gems:  Recollections

Scattered Flowers


Good morning!

I didn't get as much crafty time as I wanted this weekend since I got a last minute call to cover a work shift on Saturday but I did manage to make a card for three challenges - CAS Colours and Sketches (colours this week), Freshly Made Sketches and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Fun with Florals).  I pulled out some Lil' Inker Designs flower dies and cut out a whole pile of them in the three challenge colours.  I ended up making 3 cards and still didn't use them all up so they're ready and waiting for a future card.  The sentiment and flag are both from My Favourite Things.  I added Glossy Accents to the centre of the three biggest flowers and gems to some of the smaller ones for a bit of shine.




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from More Essential Sentiments) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Stitched flowers) Lil' Inker Designs, (Flag) My Favourite Things
Gems:  Recollections
Other:  (Glossy Accents) Ranger

Bold Patterned Birthday


Hello there!

I'm popping in today with a card for the Seize the Birthday Layer It challenge.  I took inspiration from this gorgeous card made by Gayatri.  I changed it up a bit by keeping the die cuts right next to each other and using patterned paper instead of inked card.  It's a great way to make use of patterned paper especially the old 12x12 sheets that I have.  I added the Simon Says birthday die over the top which is a two layer die so counting the card base I have 4 layers.  I liked the design so much I ended up making three cards with different papers and I imagine there will be more in the future.





Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Rich Razzleberry, Crisp Cantaloupe, Lemon Lime Twist) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey, K&Co
Dies:  (Happy Birthday) Simon Says Stamp, (Flags) Taylored Expressions
Other:  (Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops) Tonic, (Glossy Accents) Ranger
