Pumpkins




I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today sharing this card using the Autumn Gnomes set. This is a great set because not only does it have cute little gnomes, it also has these pumpkins. 

To make this CAS card, I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel which I cut down with a scalloped/stitched die cut. I stamped the image on the panel and then colored it using Copic markers. I added a little grass under the pumpkins and the greeting to finish the card. 

This card is also for the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers.

For my card I started with a top folding white card base in which I stamped the image on directly. I used thick cardstock so when I colored it wouldn't bleed through.

Galaxies


It's my turn to share a card for the Beyond the Blue challenges. We are just a group of friends who follow Lydia (Understandblue) and use her daily lives for inspiration for our weekly challenges.

This week we are wanting to see galaxy backgrounds. 
To create my card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel.

I created the galaxy background by ink blending, Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire, Picked Raspberry Salvaged Patina and Hickory Smoke. I spritzed some water over the panel and then also added some stars by using a white gel pen.
I stamped the image from the Dance Mode set by Picket Fence Studios, fussy cut it out and then popped it up on the galaxy panel. The greeting is a strip by Tim Holtz.

Merry Berry Christmas


Happy Wednesday!
It's time for a new challenge at Make the Cards Challenge and this week we have a sketch for you. 


To create my card I started with a side folding card base, a white panel and some patterned paper from my stash, not sure what company it is from. I cut a piece of patterned paper a quarter of an inch smaller than the base and added to the base. 
I stamped the holly from the Holly Berries Bundle by Hero Arts on a separate piece of cardstock, colored it using Copic markers and then cut it out with the coordinating dies.
I added another strip of patterned paper across the top of the card and then to finish the card I added the banner in which I stamped the sentiment on.

Hello




Today's card uses a mix of products from different companies for the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers. 
To create this card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel. I randomly stamped the diamond from the Bloom & Grow set by Gina K Designs to create a background (I purposely wanted then to look distressed, the stamp is solid) then added the sunflower as a focal point from that same set. The large hello is by Concord & 9th. All products are linked below.

So Grateful


It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS, our hostess for this challenge is Vicky and she chose the code word...


Today is the anniversary of 911, I can't believe that it has been 20 years already. We will never forget where we were and what we were doing when the first tower was struck, nor will we forgot those who lost their lives that day. God bless America!

To create my card I started with a top folding white card base, panel of white Heavystock and a piece of watercolor paper. I created a background with a wash of Broken China distress ink. For the leaf I used Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet smooshed them on my craft sheet, spritzed with water and picked them up for the colors on the leaf.
