Grass

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CASology challenge, the cue card this week is grass.  My card is also for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  Another great sketch that I am sure I will use again!  Initially I thought of green for the grass but when looking through my stamps I decided on a different direction.  I chose this great image from my Sweet 'n Sassy Landscape Silhouettes set, embossing with Zing Chestnut embossing Powder.  I heat embossed a moon with vanilla embossing powder and then sponged with Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans for a night sky.  I used Washi Tape for the back strips.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!!

FS398

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Featured Stamper on SCS.  Today we are honoring Bridget, binlay.  She is resigning as one of the hostesses, so sad to see you go Bridget!  You've given me a lot of inspiration on Sunday mornings!  I chose to CASE this card of Bridget's.  I kept the same layout and flower image but changed the color of my flower, the sentiment, used enamel dots instead of pearls and used Glass Bead Glitter Gel with my Brilliant stencil instead of ink.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Mother's Daughter

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for the featured stamper challenge on SCS.  This weeks lucky lady is Mother's Daughter!  I had a hard time deciding on which card to CASE but kept coming back to this card.  I've never had success with this technique and don't have any shaving cream at the moment so I used the alcohol ink technique, using Cranberry, Lemonade & Terra Cotta inks.  I added ribbon and didn't use a die, used a stamp instead.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Three

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge and also this weeks CASology challenge.  This weeks cue card is 3.  Right away I thought of my Conversation Hearts and Conversation Heart Block which fit both challenges perfectly!  For the "Three" challenge I have 3 rows of 3, 3 colors and 3 enamel dots.  Love these kind of challenges!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
