Birthday Worm

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS.  Congratulations rosekathleenr!  You have a great gallery!  I chose to CASE this card, changing the theme, image, didn't add a sentiment, colors and background .  Not too long ago I received this fun image from Whipper Snapper, Party Worm, isn't it the cutest?  You can't tell in the photo but I added Glossy Accents to the eyes and stickles to the dots on the hat.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

CAS(E)E 89

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch challenge!  Another great sketch with lots of possibilities!  For my card I used an acrylic block and my Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, initially I had not added enough water, it was real blotchy and I didn't like the look so I added more ink and water to the block and went over it again and this is what I got!  I really like it, it kind of looks like cork to me!  I cut out my Cattails die with Ivory cardstock, stamped my birthday sentiment with Frayed Burlap ink, popped up and added candy dots to the corners and my card was complete.  I hope it passes the hubs' masculine test!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

School Bus

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for the CAS challenge for this week.  Our challenge is coloring.  A few days ago I received my Whipper Snapper order and couldn't wait to color some of my new images!  This adorable School Bus was the first image to be colored, isnt't it adorable?!  I added glossy accents to all the windows and bus doors.  I wanted to make a piece of notebook paper, I cut out the cardstock and used my Office Edges Confetti Cuts and my corner rounder at the bottom of the piece.  I added washi tape and cut my clouds out, added liquid applique and glitter.  One cloud is up on pop dots, I threw on a few rhinestones and that wrapped this card up.  I had a lot of fun making this card!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stencils

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for the CAS challenge on SCS.  This weeks challenge is to use stencils.  When I use my stencils I love using my embossing paste and adding embossing powder, looks great!  For this card I used 2 stencils.  First I used my Framelits Banner die to make a stencil, I laid that over the squares stencil and spread my embossing paste.  I added blue embossing powder, after the paste dried I heat embossed.  The thank you layer is up on pop dots and I added sequins randomly.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks featured stamper challenge on SCS.  Congratulations to Diane (fionna51)!  She has a great gallery with lots of wonderful cards to choose from!  I kept coming back to this card and decided it was the one!  The sentiment I used is from my Grand Holiday Greetings set from My Favorite Things, what a great set for the inside or outside of your holiday card. I added a impression plate to the ivory layer, changed the theme, colors, die cut and used sequins instead of brads.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
