A little Something ...

A new CASology challenge starts today ... remember that we are having a two week challenge this time. We know life gets busy in summer.

The cue word is Cloud.

This just might be the whitest card I have ever made! But that pop of colour does make it cheerful.

Pop on over to the design team to get more inspiration.

Watercolour Background

I love using Distress Oxides as watercolours. The light that shines through makes me happy.

Splash Watercoloring

I spotted this Splash Watercoloring challenge over at CAS Watercolour

I had a couple of small pieces of the Altenew Washi tape left from my last card, and it needs a little background to help fill the card. Add a dash of script and the lovely light dies from Alexandre Renke, and top it off with a sentiment from Altenew.

Switching sides for the second card ... and the darker flowers get darker liquid pearls.

Washi Flowers

This washi tape is just so beautiful! I thought it would work well with some silver embossing, so I embossed 2 butterflies and the sentiment.

A close up of the butterflies. I watercolored them with Distress Chipped Sapphire and Faded Jeans.

Cube Builder No 3

For the third in the Cube Builder series, I didn't make cubes! (In fact this was my first card, and hadn't figured out how to make them yet. Duh!) But I enjoy the pattern nevertheless.

I added patterns using the diamond from the Simple Shapes set, the triangles from the Sohcahtoa Set and dots from the Mini Hello Set. 

I popped up the Happy on turquoise foam.

Cube Builder No 2

Here is my second card with the cube builder stencil .... 

This time I added a bit of interest and shadow effect by using the striped triangle from the Sohcahtoa stamp set.

I added turquoise metallic stars and blue liquid pearls.

Entering this to the Altenew July Inspiration Challenge.

Cube Builder No1

I love the inspiration photo and colours from the Altenew July Inspiration Challenge. I thought it was a great one to try for a masculine card.

So I took out my new, never been used before, cube builder stencil and started playing. For the first try I kept to one tone cubes in layers. I added extra black lines to the black stripe paper, and white gel pen to the "Big" sentiment.

A Speedy Recovery

A friend recently had a hip replacement ... and this is the card I made for her. I used a stitch die to symbolise her real stitches.

Repeating ... for Masculine Card

I've so happy .... happy .... happy ... to have a new design for a masculine card!

I couldn't find enamel accents to match my inks, so I stamped the small dots using the same inks and added glossy accents.

CASology Challenge : Zoom

It's time for a new CASology challenge. The cue word this week is ZOOM. This is a 2 week challenge as we know everyone gets busy over summer.

I went with the idea of a zoom lens on a camera. 

I used a stencil through my Big Shot to create texture on my background.

This photo captures the glossy accents on the stars, but I lost the texture of the background.  Couldn't seem to capture both!

I have stamped up a lot of my background stamps in black and greys so that they are ready at hand if I want to add a strip or matting.

You can see some of these used HERE and HERE.

Pop on over to the design team to get more inspiration.

June CCC Reveal

It's time for the Card Chain Challenge Reveal for June. My card went off to Shylaa in India.

I went with the colours and a light interpretation of the sketch with a change in orientation.

Why don't you join in the fun for July? ... You have until the 5th July to sign up. This month we have sponsorship from Rubber Dance stamps with a beautiful Hydrangea stamp up for grabs.

Rainbow Celebrate

Had such fun with this one ... Painted with Distress Oxides.

Double cut the sentiment ... one in black, one in white and offset them. Added Stickles to add some shine on the opposite side to the black "shadow".


Playing with Distress Oxides and my new Alexandra Renke dies.
