Addicted to CAS - Sparkle



We are excited about getting the tree up and decorated.  A bit afraid of how the puppy with react, but we'll see....should be fun!


We have a new challenge starting over at Addicted to CAS.  Our theme for this challenge is Sparkle.  Lots of different ideas for this one, but I opted to go for a non-Christmas card.  Here's my take on the challenge...






I stamped the main image and colored this little sassy character with Copic markers.  I then added the sentiment and a few of the little sparkle things.  I then cut this border and colored it with the matching copic markers.  Pretty simple!




Here's a close up of the image.  You can see I used the inlaid die technique for the blue border.  It makes it much easier for mailing.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - OLC Candles, Lights

What a beautiful week...it is rather cold in the mornings, but warms up nicely by the afternoon.  We are off today to pick out and trim our Christmas tree!  Yeah!

We have another challenge starting over at Less is More!  It is time for a one layer card, my favorite, and the theme is Candles or Lights.  Perfect theme for this time of the year.  Head on over to see some more ideas.  Here is my take on the challenge.







As you can see...this is a quick and simple card.  Easy for mass production if you are so inclined.  Simple stamping and very quick copic coloring.  A bit of Wink of Stella for some sparkle.




Here's a close up of the card...can't really see the sparkle in the photo...but it's there.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Green and Red

Another beautiful but cool weekend ahead.  Great weather for some tennis...and I have a match scheduled for this morning....yeah!


We have another challenge starting over at Less is More.  This week our challenge is a color challenge and what better colors than Red and Green.  Fits in just perfectly for the season...and I took advantage of that and created this quick and simple little Christmas card.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!



You can see this is a super CAS card.  I simply stamped the image and colored it with Copic markers.  I then added a touch of Wink of Stella.  Mounted it on some green card stock and popped the image up with foam tape.

Super simple for mass production...and a cute 4x4 size!



Here's a close up of the image.  You can see the bit of dimension.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Let It Shine

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  Here in the US we have a nice long weekend!  It has been a beautiful mild weathered weekend....tomorrow a bit of rain is scheduled, but other than that it feels like spring!

We have another challenge starting over at Less is More today.  Our theme for this challenge is Let it Shine...use something shiny or glittery on your card.  Lots of opportunity to for that for the holidays!  I have several birthday's this time of the year, so I'm focusing on a few birthday cards!  Here's my take on the challenge...




This has become one of my go to birthday cards.  Simple, yet packs a punch!

I cut the sentiment image from some shiny silver paper...hard to see in this photo, but super shiny!

I added a few pink and red sequins and some shiny silver squares and stars.

Super fun and quick card to make!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - Sweets



Hope all my US readers had a Happy Thanksgiving.  We certainly have a ton to be thankful for...so enjoy your weekend.

We have another challenge starting over at Addicted to CAS!  Our theme for this challenge is Sweets!  Certainly a perfect theme for this time of the year!  Here's my take on the challenge. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!




I simply stamped this Stamping Bella image on white card stock and colored it with my copic markers.  I then decided to use this fun scallop die cut for a bit of extra interest.  I colored the scalloped portion with my copic markers in a color that matches the main image.





Here's a bit of a close up of the image.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Challenge

We had a bit of spotty rain this week.  Good thing it happened on my rest day, so I was able to get in lots of tennis and dog walking!

We have another challenge starting today at Less is More.  The team has generously invited me to host this new challenge...so here is my inspiration.  Head on over to see what the team has created for you.  We are looking forward to seeing what you come up with!




I'm finally getting into the Christmas vibe and getting my cards organized.  This is a quick and easy card...where I simply stamped my image, die cut it and colored it with copic markers.  I added a bit of foam tape for dimension and a few stars to give it a bit of sparkle.




Here's a close up of the image.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
