Best Friend's Birthday!

When it's one of your best friend's Birthday, you need to make a special card.

The Flaunt It set was the perfect choice. In order to keep it CAS, I decided to use part of image. There are actually 3 ladies in the stamp.

To make it special, I used Jennifer McGuire's Interlocking Gatefold card design.

Added some glossy accents to the glasses and lips.

Birthday Rings and Splatters

CASology is now having 2 week challenges. This gives you plenty of time to get your mojo working.  Our cue word is RING for this fortnight.

I went with the idea of rings of ink.

I added enamel accents to match the swipes of Copic ink.

Come and check on the creations of the design team and be inspired. Looking forward to seeing your take on the cue word.

Beautiful Birthday Blessings

I'm a big fan of Jennifer McGuire and her generous sharing of techniques and ideas. I so enjoyed the Interlocking Gatefold Cards, and had to make my own.

I decided to overlap the sentments across the frame.

Here it is in action

Hello Friend

Such a delicate die paired with Pinkfresh Studio Botanicals.

When you need to throw a card together very quickly, then it's time to grab some patterned paper. The summer garden paper pack from Altenew is beautiful.

Congrats Grad!

My son is graduating from University this year! I wanted to make a really classy masculine grad card.

The arrival of the gold string washi tape and Essential Rock Collection Paper pad from Altenew was fortuitous. I die cut the letters from the washi tape; and embossed the paper.

I used Copics C1, C3 & C5 to colour the cap and certificate.

... Just Add Ink I used gold for the yellow colour.

Altenew was very clever with this washi tape ... it coordinates with the Floral shadows stamp and die cut sets!

I did brush the stencilled background with Perfect Pearls, but so difficult to capture on camera.

Celebrate - Brights and Pastels

I started making a card, and I got a bonus one on the way.

Added some Nuvo glitter gloss to the wings. Hard to capture on camera.

When I had stamped my first card with the solid leaves, there was still lots of ink on the stamp. So I gave it another little spritz and stamped on a new card.  So much softer.

Are you a BRIGHTS person or a PASTELS person?

It's your Day

I was so taken with Cecile's card design, that I had to try to make my own version.

I love these little Picket Fence seahorses.

B&W Grid

I don't know if this card is really ridiculous, or a bit funky and artsy.

I love the light funky Happy Birthday.

I added Distress Stickles to 3 areas to bring some bling and fun.

Butterfly Grid

I can't resist a grid design, so had to play along with this sketch challenge.

I added some interest by stamping geometric designs behind the butterflies, but stamped in soft grey to keep it subtle.

I added black enamel dots to the body to bring in the black from the strong black sentiment.
