Less is More - Stripes

Enjoying the lovely weekend.  So nice to hang in the yard and enjoy the spring blooms.

We have another challenge starting over at Less is More!  Our theme for this week is Stripes!  I'm sure you have tons of great ideas for this theme, and we can't wait to see them.  Here's my take on the theme, looking forward to seeing what you come up with!



This is a super quick card.  I simply stamped my flags at the top of the card in rainbow colors.

Once that was done, I added the sentiment!

Done!


Here's a close up of the card.  One-layer and super simple!

Tag You're It - Challenge #70

What a beautiful spring day!  Nice week to be on the courts playing both singles and doubles.  The beautiful weather is continuing so more fun to come!

We also have a challenge starting over at Tag You're It!  Here's the inspiration tag...from our guest designer Kim Heggins.  Isn't this just the cutest tag ever?

I'm sure you can come up with a bunch of great tags with this fun inspiration. Here's my take on the challenge, looking forward to seeing what you come up with!



I started by stamping my balloons on the tage and coloring them with copics. I masked the balloons and added the brick background.

I then stamped my bear on separate card stock and colored him.  I was going to pop him on on foam tape, but in the end, I just glued him on the tag.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

CAS on Sunday - Stencil

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!  If I was organized enough, I would have created an Easter Card, but alias...my organization skills need a bit of work!

Anywho, we have another challenge over at CAS on Sunday starting today.  Our theme for this challenge is Stencil.  You must use a stencil on your design.

Here's my take on the challenge, looking forward to seeing what you come up with!




I started by grabbing one of my favorite stencils, then adding a bit of distressed ink...a little two tone yellow.  I then stamped and colored my image.

I cut it out and popped it up on some foam tape.  I thought the card needed a bit of additional color around the stencil, so I stamped some small red dots. I then added the sentiment and done!






Here's a close up of the card.  You can see the dimension I used in popping up the main image on foam tape!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Rainbow

Happy Easter weekend to all to celebrate Easter.  It is a bit of a cloudy weekend, but hopefully spring will be back soon.

We have another challenge starting over at Addicted to CAS!  Our theme for this challenge is Rainbow.  Lots of options with this theme, and certainly a favorite to those of us who like lots of color. Here's my take on the theme, looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Don't forget to keep your design clean and simple!  



I started by stamping my images and coloring them with copic markers.  A simple coloring job, since the images are quite small.

I then added a bit of patterned paper on the bottom along with a small strip of red to tie everything together!

I think this will be perfect for my nephew who like science!






Here's a close up of the card.  You can see it is a flat card, so easy for mailing.  

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Spring Walk

Spring has certainly sprung here...the flowers are out in full force and there have been days of rain in between. This is my favorite time of year so all is good!

We have another challenge starting over at Less is More. The theme for this challenge is Spring Walk.  How fun is that!


Looking forward to seeing what you come up with...here's my take on the challenge...


I started by stamping this cute little guy on some card stock and coloring him with copic markers.

I then added the clouds and used the inlaid die technique after sponging them with distress ink. Then stamped the sentiment.





Here's a close up of my card.  You can see I used the inlaid die technique for the clouds.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
