Jumping for Joy 2


Here is my second card for the CASology challenge : cue word JUMPY.

I spotted this small Impala on the Hero Arts Safari set and thought it perfect! To keep the card CAS, I restricted my scene to a panel. I repeated the walking Impala stamp many times, and used 2nd generation stamping for the ones at the back. I highlighted with a white gel pen to the places where the light would shine.

Jumping for Joy 1

It's time for this week's CASology challenge, with the cue word of JUMPY.

I have two cards for this challenge ... the first is using a Silhouette cut file called Girl Jumping. I double stamped one of the background stamps of WPlus9 from the So 80's set, and added a sentiment from Hero Arts Safari Wild About You.



I popped the panel for added dimension.




Pop on over to the design team to get more inspiration and I'll be back tomorrow with my second card. I wonder what makes you JUMPY?

Geometric

Geometric designs are great for a masculine card especially paired with a bold sentiment.

Framed

My first card using a few of the "leftovers" that I have spent sorting out in the last few days. Hopefully the start of a good new habit.

Pearl

It's a wonderful challenge at CASology this week. The cue word is PEARL. There are so many possibilities for this challenge. 

I decided to used Distress Inks and then spritz with Perfect Pearls to give the paper that nacre look. I used the negative cut of the SSS Circle leaves die first, glueing in the pieces using the positive shape to guide me. And then I added my sentiment and some Liquid Pearl dots.


A shot to capture the Perfect Pearls.



Of course I still had the positive cut. I went a lightly busier look, adding little dragonflies.


Here you can see the how I popped the panel on foam dots for dimension.


And the lovely blue Perfect Pearls.


Which one do you prefer?

Pop on over to the design team to get more inspiration ... and then I'm looking forward to seeing your take on Pearl !

Love the dots!

This stamp set is so much fun! And great for a masculine card too!

Pick some distress inks, add some of the doodle stamps and a sentiment, and voila!

Negative cuts

Having the matching dies for your stamps makes it easy to do negative cuts for the image to peep through.

Life is better ...

I actually won my first online challenge back in 2010 with a Pop up fold card, but it was great to see Jennifer McGuire take it to another level with an opening one. So I had to try it too.

I coloured the sentiment with Prismacolor to make it look like beach sand and sea.


The scene inside used a mix of stamps and dies from Hero Arts, Simon Says Stamp, WPlus9 and Ellen Hutson.


I added some glitter Nuvo to the flip flops.

Oh Happy Day!

May you be happy as a lamb who gambols in a field on a sunny day!

This week's CASology challenge has the cue word of FARM. I don't have many farm related stamps, but I love this little sheep from Hero Arts.



Pop on over to the design team to get more inspiration ... and then I'm looking forward to seeing what you farm animal will be !

Fancy Fold Charmed Flowers 3

My third card in the trio of Fancy Fold Charmed flowers (see the First and Second).

When I was colouring for my second card, I started with the yellow centres and green leaves and thought it looked lovely and light. So I stamped another set and kept the flowers white. Thought it makes a lovely wedding card, so added an embossed background. I did paint Wink of Stella on the white flowers, but hard to capture on camera.



Not that much colouring, but I’ll still enter it to ...

May CCC


It's wonderful making cards that are going off to fellow stamping enthusiasts. My card for the MAY CCC went off to Lucille. See the reveal of all the cards sent HERE.

I went with the colour scheme, sketch and Friendship theme. I used the flowers die cut from the Altenew Spring Shower Cover die and coloured them with Copics. I offset the frame front to add interest.


And I made a matching envelope. Always fun to receive happy mail.



If you'd like to join in the fun, sign up for the June Card Chain Challenge by the 6th June.

Fancy Fold Charmed Flowers 2

This is take 2 of my Fancy Fold Charmed Flowers trio (see the first card HERE).

I went with a rainbow of colours grouping the red, pink and orange for the bigger blooms and then the blue, indigo and purple for the smaller ones.

I decided to keep this one simple and pop the flowers directly on the card front.

Fancy Fold Charmed Flowers 1

I loved Jennifer McGuire's Stamped Folded cards and had to make my own versions. I decided to try with the Altenew Charmed Stamp ... I just love the fine lines. I was having so much fun with colours, I ended up making three.

This is the first one .... going the full three layers. I chose the Altenew May Challenge colours.



Open the bow to read the sentiment ...


Lift the card to write your message. You can see that I also added one more flap to the back so that the card will be able to stand even when the bow is tied.
